1 Asus GTX 570 DirectCu II VS SLI GTX 285

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi every one,

Today i made some tests to my new 3d vision with acer 120hz lcd, i tried some games @ MAX in every way..

I noticed that crysis 2 cant run as it should be in Extreme option, it run good at HIGH Option, since when i am choosing very high the game is not moving very well, and i am feeling that, when i am aiming to any target.
Call of duty BO and MOH-LE, was very good but also not excellent..

It seems that 3d vision need a powerful new GPU, and it seems that my currant SLI GTX 285 cant handle such a games with 3d vision @ MAX.

I noticed many of you, mentioned the ASUS GTX 570 DirectCU2, and i found it in good price.. But i want to confirm something before i go to this step..

1- I have UD7 MB, so can this board handle this GPU, since i noticed it need 3 slots?? and i am planning to go with SLI in the future.
2- Should i go with the same Brande gpu but GTX 580? I found lots of different between both in the price.
3- Do 1 GTX 570, will show me huge different than my SLI GTX 285?
4- Should i wait for sometimes, so the price for thous GPUs may come down?


I am playing games most of the time with my 3d vision at FULL HD only, FOR NOW. And i am thinking of surround after sometimes.

I think that two GTX 285's in SLI would garner about the same performance as a GTX 570... The problem isn't your video card setup, its that Crysis 2 has massively huge problems using multi-gpu setups correctly and utilizing it... Most likely Crysis 2 is just utilizing one video card because you will get flickering if it uses both.

If you want an upgrade, get a GTX 580. No problems with a single GPU setup like that in ANY games, that's for sure.

will, thank you for your answer, it seems that crysis 2 which have that issue, since most of the other game doing almost good @ MAX. In the same time i never had any flickering while playing crysis or other game..

What about the other issue, any idea..?

Two GTX 285's in SLI = 480 combined CUDA cores
One GTX 570 = 480 CUDA cores

A GTX 570 will give you maybe 5% performance boost because there are no SLI scaling issues...

The GTX 580 has 512 CUDA cores and you would see a more significant performance boost from that... About 12% performance increase.

It depends on how much performance you really need... 12% with the GTX 580 might not be enough, you might need SLI 570's to comfortably play at your settings... I don't know how bad it's lagging for you.

If you wait for some good deals you can find GTX 570's for $280 or GTX 580's for $420. There might also be some good deals in the For Sale forum here, do some shopping around and you'll find some good prices.

Oh, and three slots just means that the video card itself takes up 3 of those little screw holes at the end of your case on installation, not three PCIe X16 slots.. It should fit just fine.

Sound Good here, thank you very much for the information.. I think i will wait for sometimes or try to find a good offer for GTX 580, or SLI GTX 570.

Dude, I'm in the same boat, i've been researching for AGES and my conclusion is:

580 is about 400GBP - (over priced)
570 is about 250GBP
480 is about 300GBP - (over priced)
470 is about 200GBP

If we want to see a performance increase (baring in mind the hit its gonna take from DX11) We're gonna HAVE to go for another SLI set up. i think the 570's are the best looking at the moment, if the 480's were cheaper i'd get them (i saw msi hydro-copper cards for 200euro but didn't have the cash, one time deal too DARN)

But i'm holding out for the EVGA Classified 570's they're like 10% behind the 580 but in SLI they will PWN for another 2 years.

So that is my advice, 480's if you can get em cheap or 570's its the only upgrade path we're gonna get comparable performance.
