    We've received several requests to release the driver package we used in this video, and we've received permission to do so from Layne and Collins Aerospace. As far as we know, this is the only driver now online.

      I'm sure they wouldn't have cared much regardless. "Oh no! Somebody else is using our rare as hens teeth, 17 years old, oddly configured and designed for huge rack computers graphics card for things other than running old simulations where it would have only really been state of the art with four of them!" Thanks Layne.

    It makes sense that ATI would have been able to connect multiple GPUs on a board since they had tried it with the Rage Fury Maxx. Since ATI really had something promising with the Radeon 8500 it doesn't shock me they had this kind of tech ready at least at the prototype stage. Never knew anyone actually attempted anything like this with this kind of hardware.

    As a teenager , I remember drooling over 3D Labs Glint GMX 2000 , and I used to have a graphic board ( what we had before GPU and T&L ) with a Permedia ( I had both Permedia 2 and Permedia 3 ) or Real Image Chips from Mitsubishi or even an SGI Octane 2. Never owned any , saw the Octane at a convention , but fairly unusual setup are always nice to see. You should have reviewed the Open GL performance in a CAD or a DCC app , it would have made more sense , something like Lightwave would have been good ... Anyway , thanks for this really weird and wonderful GPU's review ! :)

    lol Linus... you had me at 3dmark2001se... :D

    • Brackus2

      Had to mention, after watching further into it, those earlier mutli cpu and gpu systems, while like your buddy says, was always fun and sexy to look at back in the day in the performance graphs, but they never gamed or performed in the benchmarks (for gaming) like regular pimped out single cpu and single gpu systems. Alot of that was always due to the drivers being subpar for the tasks, and people were pretty practiced at eeking every single score point out of their systems, even 2004 and earlier. Long story short, im sure that system you guys tested here can annhilate many 2004 systems at different tasks (video rendering etc) but it will always fall short in gaming.

    This reminds me of the dual Radeon HD 4870's I had in my TOL rig back when I started a PC building company in 2008. I remember thinking how absolutely bonkers the price of those were (I think they were in the neighborhood of $500-$600 each). How many people would beg for that price on a dual high-end GPU now! Lol. I still have those cards (and that rig) as well, could never convince myself to get rid of them. I wonder how that would stack up now

    Just a note: We worked with similar cards in simulation back in the 2000's. You should turn off Hyper Threading on Single Core CPU's. The majority of drivers were not built with hyperthreading code (you had to build with intels compiler for this to work properly). Disabling Hyper-Threading usually gives a 1.5-3x perf boost on those machines.
