    FFXIV benchmark is hit or miss with CrossFire, although TBoneSan had a really good score.

    If you read the documentation, SLI support requires 320 series drivers. If I use 314.22 my score plummets to about half of what it is using one of the latest drivers. GPU0 usage is near 100% and GPU1 is 0% using 314.22.

    In other words, if you are using the stock Dell driver it will not work correctly with FFXIV.

    Our friend svl7 is still working on an unlocked BIOS. Secure Flash and signatures are a serious problem for enthusiasts with this terribly unfortunate new "technology" that has been employed in the Haswell BIOS. I'm having issues getting the dual AC adapter to work correctly with the 18. That run is using a single AC adapter and benching on cold air to compensate for the fans not working right. John and I worked at it a long time. It took about 5 hours of trial and error to pull off that one decent run. What a pain.

    Intel is expected to announce a new lineup of Haswell processors on September 1.
