Eyefinity 5760x1200 WC'ed 69xx Scaling.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have ditched a idea involving getting two 6950's and unlock them for several reasons. That leaves 2x6970 or a 6990.

From what I have gathered is that 6970 xfired might be the best, since they are able to clock more and 6990 makes a insane vram hum.

What about scaling of two gpu's in 6xxx series in dx11 Eyefinity? (I do know 6990 has two of them )

But I then need two waterblocks for the 6970's, which adds to price. Is it more cumbersome with two blocks?

There's some DX11 benchmarks of the 6990 and other 6000 series cards here and here. If I could be sure of equal overclock/performance from a watercooled 6990 to watercooled 6970CF, I'd probably go with the single card, but a lot would depend how much the blocks would cost for each card. If the 6970CF option was only marginally more or the same price and performed a little better, I'd be tempted with that option more. Would also depend on the platform I was thinking of running on. X58, I'd prefer the 6970CF option I think.
