I read somewhere that 790 might not be happening and it makes sense

 

Nvidia lately only did 1 dualchip GPU per generation

 

295 was from its own generation (forgot the name)

 

590 was Fermi

 

690 is Kepler

 

So perhaps 1 dual GPU per each generation. And since Maxwell is incoming we can only hope for 890. I don't think 790 will be happening but noone can know for sure but Nvidia.

Yes, VRAM size (1600Mb used) is getting issue with 690s frown.gif Here is my screenshot of second monitor, while I am playing Battlefield3 at Ultra.
3770K is OC.
Do you think 2 GTX 780 will be better than one 690? Seems the same setup but with 3Gb of VRAM?!
As 690 declares 4Gb. it is just 2x2 and those fills same 2x way smile.gif

Oh 2 780s will definitaly be better than a 690.

 

When I oc my Titan I can get a stock 690 performance ( of course 690 can still make a difference when OCed as well)

 

Since an OCed 780 is also similar to a stock Titan, it is possible to say that 780 SLI will be faster than 690.

In worse case scenario the difference is minimal but still favoring 780 SLI.

Hmm. smile.gif Don't want to sell my 690, will be waste of money.. frown.gif
Ok, lets think another scenario, lets say 690 isn't powerful enough for new game, then I add another one (in SLI) and what about VRAM? Future games will need more and more VRAM, so 690 will be pointless to upgrade into SLI?
Or I am thinking wrong way? Thanks!

Honestly for me, Quad SLI 690 is pointless. Toooo much power but toooo few vram. You will still have 2GB of vram at the end. 2GB of Vram is still ok on pretty much all games but new generation could be different.

 

Also that link seems a hoax as there is no info on 790 as of now. There are rumors that it will have 2 GK110 chips though.

Quad SLI is kinda crappy in general, it can be a pita, and the scaling isn't that good. I had a buddy with 2 690s, and whenever we would try to game it would take him multiple reboots to get his SLI enabled and functioning.

Virgis your result seems a little bit odd ...

I can play it maxed out with downscalling 1800p (3200x1800p + msaa x4 + ultra) with ease ...

Vram average utilisation is 2018 Mb on my gtx 690 ... on stock both cores running at 1071 mhz ... 1243 mhz when overclocked without issues or throlling. thumb.gif

average 60 fps @ 3200x1800p with a poor Peryn Q9950 @ 4.1ghz and o/ced gtx 690 on battlefield 3... u have a much powerfull cpu ! biggrin.gif

Both gpu's are still @ 900 mhz .... unless your playing with a 15 inch flat screen @ 720P tongue.gif ... so my question ? wich screen are you using at you home : 1080p/1440p / surround etc....

.... 690 is the most powerfull card ever made, Vram issue is very rare : Max payne 3 @ 2880x1620p + msaa x8 will blow for sure the 2x2 gb of gddr5 ram,.... or skyrim with thousand of mods and 8k textures.

I've plenty of games installed on my rig, vram was never the issue .... but cpu bottlenecking was wink.gif ( in my case ... not yours for sure)
post #4890 of 5564
2GB has been plenty for me on all my games at 2560x1440.....but shew, these new recommendations DICE has released does have me a little worried.

I really don't feel like trying to sell my 690, especially with block and all....was hoping to get a couple of years out of it at least. Still, should I sell now and try to get as much as possible and go for something like a 780? Stick with it and see how it does? confused.gif
