Using two FirePro cards and CrossFire Pro to dynamically scale OpenGL rendering performance in Maya

The first public demo of CrossFire Pro  was shown at Siggraph. The demo (captured on video) compares OpenGL rendering in Maya 2009,  running on a single FirePro V5700 vs running on two FirePro V5700s using the new CrossFire Pro drivers. The model being rotated has over 2 million triangles. Using the single FirePro card, the model rotates at about 70 fps. Using CrossFire Pro with two equivalent FirePro cards, the same model frame rate is about 110 fps - in other words, 50% scaling in OpenGL rendering performance by combining the power of two GPUs.
