gtx560 ti SLI or gtx580? - Page 3

post #21 of 74
GTX560 Ti 1GB SLI beats GTX580 at 1920x1200 4xAA and 2560x1600 4xAA for the 16 games tested (except Far Cry 2 where there is driver issue).
This means the pair is not running out of VRAM and its calculating power wins over the 580's.

But, it is logical to expect the 1GB VRAM will run out at higher AA and resolution sooner than the GTX580's 1.5GB.
Actually, comparing the 2 charts, I can see the performance gap between the pair and the GTX580 changes from 100:87 to 100:89. This suggests that the increase of resolution from 1920x1200 to 2560x1600 narrows the performance gap by 2%.

So, if OP's concern is solely BF3 at 1920x1200, then it is a no brainer that GTX560 Ti 1GB SLI wins with higher framerate (but this does not mean that GTX580 will give unacceptable framerate).

My vote is for 560ti's, you get much more power now, and when it comes time to upgrade you're not gonna wish you had another 580 to drop in, you're going to be looking at cards two generations newer that are much superior. In the long run it will be cheaper to buy the ti's now and sell them and get a newer architecture than to buy another 580 down the road imho.

Get GTX 560 TI sli since you're only gaming on a single monitor. GTX 580 sli is just an overkill unless you plan on getting a triple screen set up.

This is OCN. Overkill is non existent here

2GB is nice but 1.5 isn't far behind.
For 1080P the GF-114's is fine, but I would take the GF-110 myself and SLi later.
Every price comes down eventually.
Hardly...

When you are talking 60FPS constant, of course the 560Ti's aren't going to provide that with max IQ, but for the price of a 580 you can get 2x 560Ti's

ON 560Ti 2gb SLI, I run BFBC Maxed with 4x MSAA, 16x AF and HBAO on (which is a 15fps hit in itself) and get 38fps avg, running 6060x1080 resolution, and very smooth frames.

These are some benchmarks ive participated it, note my Dirt 3 run with 53fps avg

Something that cannot be achieved on a single 580

But this is all in relation to your post, and not OT

OP

560Ti SLI:
higher average frames
lower minimum frames
less compatibility with newer titles
better price/perf
no upgrade path

580:
upgrade path
more compatibilty with newer titles
lower price/perf
more vram (when not comparing the 2gb version of the 560ti)


Sincerely,

Ishi

[s]Typically, when that happens, the performance benefits are slim and or you won't even bother as you could find another dual card solution that would outperform two 480s for the price of a 480.

I've done this sort of thing with the 9600GT, and before that, the 7600GS. A second 9600GT was nice, but the gains were so low, that I could have grabbed 2x 260s that were not only similar in price, but what would have walked over the 9600GT SLI. Same with the 7600GS. A single 9600GT would outrank a 7600GS set up.

Grab the 2 560s. You'll be better off in the long run.

WAIT A SECOND. You have 2 unlocked 465s. Don't even bother, you'll see little to no gains.

I only see one in his sig. Even so, just pick up a second and call it good. Will pretty much do exactly what you are wanting.
It's so little!
