NVIDIA had done best on the first generation tested in terms of temperature management with the GeForce GTX 260, 275 and 285 (and therefore the 280 also) as well as with the GeForce GTX 295. The other bi-GPU solutions as well as the Radeon HD 4870 make for higher system temperatures. With the new generations, AMD has come back and considerably reduced energy consumption of its GPUs at idle.

The Radeon HD 4870 CrossFire system as well as the GeForce GTX 480 SLI are therefore the least efficient and impact most on other system components. Radeon HD 5800 CrossFire systems do much better however.
