CrossFire Fury X’s compared to SLI 980 Ti’s in dual and triple-GPU showdown

Over on PCPer, Ryan Shrout has just published a video and blog post detailing a fairly rigorous performance test, that pits AMD and nVidia’s flagship cards – the Radeon Fury X and GTX 980Ti, respectively – against each other in dual-GPU and triple-GPU configurations.
