I just can't get excited for any dual-gpu card. I'm not trying to be negative I'd just rather SLI/CF especially at these prices.

Technically 'Hardware News' is nuetral ground.

As long as there is no name calling in this thread, opinions are allowed. We don't have to agree as long as we keep it civil in rebuttal. I have a feeling this thread has derailed and may be locked and at the very least cleaned.

I'm sure this will make some happy to not have others talk about the 690 which some are excited about. In all fairness unfortunately when the shoe is on the other foot when the 7990 comes out its usually met in kind as well. *sigh*

The only places that are sacred ground for both sides of the fence is 'Club or Owners' threads. Trolling & bashing is frowned upon by mods and sometimes come with infractions. So if you really want to talk shop without the other side putting down a product 'to place a bug in someone's ear', that's the safest place.

Cleaned and reopened...

looks good but.... why only 2gb of VRAM?
Surely that will not satisfy high resolution multi monitor gaming, for those who want to max out their games?

I don't think I've seen any massive improvements to justify the extra ~$100 for 4GB's. Searching reviews/benches now, but currently looking at the 580s as a reference, the difference between 1.5GB and doubling it to 3GB had a very minimal difference, literally an average of 2fps. Comparing the 680 and 7970's VRAM and benches is irrelevent since they are completely different cards, so looking to make a decision on the 680 2GB vs the 680 4GB, you are definitely paying a premium on those extra couple frames-per-second. The 580s running games that were most popular at the time saw very minimal increases at anything less than 3 x 1200p, and it doesn't even look like much there. I think if you can afford 3 x 1600p monitors, then you can afford the extra 2 gigs of VRAM. But if you do have to worry about money at all, then I would say it's definitely not worth the extra cost on anything less than 3D Surround @ 1200p.

I've read numerous times people talking about how VRAM "usage" as shown in programs like Afterburner and Precision is not actually usage, but "allocation", and that it is relevant to the size of your VRAM. Memory leaks also run rampant, as pointed out in BF3 many times. And it's true, because my 570s, 1.28GBs VRAM, would show usage at around 1100-1200MBs, now I got my 680s and VRAM usage has mysteriously gone up to 1500MBs. So, unless you're seeing insane framerate drops in games, I doubt someone needs more. I don't see many people being able to justify the VRAM premium if Nvidia does indeed charge $100 more.

4 gb isnt about better performance its about not running out of vram or be too close to the limit!everything run smoother not faster

A great place to get your answer would be in the 6990, 6970 & Eyefinity club threads because they have been doing it with 2GB since last December.

Those that had 580 1.5GB SLl moved either to AMD for the 2GB or eventually to the 580 3GB. They'd have better insight on how more demanding games are running on multiple monitors.

HardOCP did multiple monitor tests when the 680 launched and it kept up with the 7970 in high res quite comparably.

On a personal level for me on a single 1920x1200 res monitor this card would be great for my 3D Vision performance when in 3D games.

Other benifits would be those with limited PCIe slot boards still accomplish Quad SLI with two 690's.

New boards come PCIe 3.0 x16 in the first slot config or PCIe 3.0 x8 if you occupy the first and second slot. I'd like to see if PCIe 3.0 will saturate the performance out of the dual GPU set up in x16 and make up ground over two singles in SLI X8. Going to be an interesting test for 690 or 7990 against thier single counter parts.

God this card looks fantastic. Best looking reference card I can remember seeing in a loooooong time. Can't wait for AMD's response. These are exciting times for computer hobbyists! thumb.gif

why not just get 2x 680s? even if the difference is small a pair would still be faster right?
