Sadly crossfire and sli do not share the memory, only the processing power. Your review is completely wrong :(

Wow...As hmboy already pointed out...Your review is entirely wrong. Everyone knows that when you run cards in sli you are not doubling the amount of available vram. If you're running sli-ed 320mb cards then you only have a total of 320MB NOT 640MB as the textures, etc have to be loaded on each card as each card could be generated a frame (ie 'Alternate Frame Rendering).

I'm surprised/shocked that you guys didn't know that.
