Do you have the problem with one Radeon (CF disabled)?
I must say that I didn't re-tested KMark with Crossfire recently...

Thanks Stefan, I didn't see that new design of OC Scanner homepage. Nice!

New Futuremark® Hardware Channel Rates PC Graphics Cards, Processors and Motherboards by Price, Performance and Popularity

HELSINKI, FINLAND – NOVEMBER 23, 2011 – Futuremark®, the world leader in performance benchmarking software and services, today unveiled the Futuremark Hardware Channel – a new online service that promises to make it easier to compare the price, performance and popularity of PC processors, graphics cards and motherboards. The Futuremark Hardware Channel is powered by performance and popularity data submitted by millions of 3DMark users around the world. Price data comes from a live feed of real-time prices from well-known and trusted retailers. From these sources Futuremark has created a free online service that makes it easy to see which PC components offer the best performance for the price as well as giving a unique insight into the buying habits of the world's most performance conscious PC power users.

Jukka Mäkinen, CEO of Futuremark said,

"Whether you are buying a new PC, or comparing components for an upgrade, sorting through the endless technical specs is time consuming and confusing. Even when you know what you want, finding the best price can be a chore. That's why we created the Futuremark Hardware Channel which combines the buying habits of the world's most-performance conscious PC users and up to the minute prices from trusted online retailers. Before you buy a new PC or notebook this holiday, make sure you are getting what you need by checking how the components perform and compare in the Futuremark Hardware Channel."


The Futuremark Hardware Channel shows which graphics cards and processors offer the best power and performance by drawing on a huge database of 3DMark results submitted by millions of PC power users.

For each individual component, it is possible to compare the performance against other products from the same manufacturer, or against products with similar performance and price from other brands.

Example using NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580:


Hardware popularity charts are based on the number of 3DMark users submitting scores using each component in the last 30 days. With data collected from millions of benchmark scores using every conceivable setup, the Futuremark Hardware Channel is also able to show which processors, graphics cards and motherboards are most commonly combined in real users' PCs. Choosing components that are currently popular with expert 3DMark users provides peace of mind when it comes to quality and value.

Most popular processor (last 30 days): Intel Core i7-2600K
Most popular graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 Ti
Most popular motherboard: ASUS P8Z68-V PRO

Most popular system:
Processor: Intel Core i7-2600K Processor:
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580
Motherboard: ASUSTeK Computer INC. P8Z68-V PRO
