GTX 570 SLI vs waiting for kepler series?

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Which one should my friend go for? He's interested in 3D and playing games like BF3 at ultra. Will the kepler series offer better price to performance ratio? When will it be out? Is it worth waiting?

If he's interested in playing BF3 at ultra settings 1280mb is not enough video ram, certainly at 1920x1080. SLI does not increase video ram, each card stores a copy of the same data. With only 1280mb video ram SLI 570's is a dead end solution.

When I run SLI 560 Ti's with 1024mb video ram, ultra settings at 1920x1080 it easily uses all 1024mb, then i get stuttering and average 10fps.

Current estimations are April for the Kepler cards. My opinion is wait for that or consider the next generation AMD radeons.

I am playing BF3 at 1920x1080p on Ultra settings with a gtx 570 and I don't experience stuttering or anything else, the game runs very smoothly and up until now I have not encountered any slow downs or anything.

Kepler will be more powerful than the 500 series of nvidia cards but the price will definitely be higher then a gtx 580 for those higher end models.

We don't know that the price of the higher end Kepler will be higher than the price of a 580, although I agree that wouldn't be an outlandish possibility. That doesn't really matter though because the benefit of waiting for Kepler is that it brings a very very high chance of increasing the performance that your money buys at the price point the OP is considering.

4X AA ?

Let's not forget though that a second 570 will bring a huge boost to frame rates, no question about that., as long as there's enough video ram.

Keplers will have very expensive price. The only way you will see Keplers cheap is only if they are a total fail and perform worse than AMD's 7xxx series which will not happen. I expect GTX680 around 600 dollars/euros. QQ

Same here.... biggrin.gif
edit: 4xMSAA, post AA set at high, vsync off, 40-55fps.

@Lost4468: If was him i would wait until Kepler`s performance results are to be officially revealed...

Yes 4x AA, everything is set to the highest possible. Adding another 570 would boost his fps. But there is no need for 2x 570's when better cards are coming out soon.

Agreed my 560 Ti is really smooth and only once in a blue moon do it experience any artifacts at with 1920x1080p on Ultra.
