Also during Far Cry3 I've seen my memory usage up to 1.9, which is getting awfully close to 2GB already.

These 2560 x 1440 monitors take much more graphic power than you may think. After all, they're 78% more pixels. That's 78% more processing power than a 1920 x 1080 monitor of the same size.
With a Titian you would think it would do better than that. I can get a smooth 50-70 fps on Crysis 3 with my 2 670's(stock 980 but I oc a little, +80+300) I have V.High System minus shadows @ Med and Water @ Low. I have VSync in Nvidia Let 3d App decide and Vsync on in Crysis 3. Have you tried dropping shadows and water? That always makes a difference, and in Crysis, the water and shadows still look good lowered. I might get my LG 23 inch 1080p and run Crysis on that and see what I get.

Nvidia and AMD really need to clear up this vram issue. I feel like we talk about it every other day, not saying in this thread....but all over the forum and other forums. tongue.gif

another fraps test from my single evga gtx 660ftw sig 2 3gb @1440p: first one is without MSAA other 3 are with 8MSAA. i guess since the game is 15+ months old drivers have matured a lot. i am using the official high texture pack from steam and also lightning mods.

but still when i get to castle draco mod i get a stutterfest @10-15fps ... probably cause the castle is too large and has too many high textured objects

seems the 192bit bus is the bottleneck as gpu and cpu are just in their 50% mostly, but somehow the msi ab info got lost from screenshots. anyway with 8msaa i had vram usage of 2.67gb

I have just recently bought an ASUS PB278Q 27" 2560x1440p monitor. I have a question about GPU's.

I am currently running the 580's in my sig for the current monitor. I have notice a tiny bit of stuttering with some games, nothing terribly noticeable and I have also noticed a drop in frame rates as compared to my previous 1080p monitor(maybe about 10fps at the most with some games).

Now I'm thinking of selling my 580's and upgrading to an MSI 680 twin frozr 2GB card.

Would this be an upgrade for me?

Ive done some research and read that 580's SLI'd are almost equal to one 680. But I will be getting reduced heat by moving to one card. I also heard there is slight micro stuttering with SLI anyway and will be removing that problem moving to a single 680.

I just wasnt sure if I would be getting a fps boost moving from 2x580's to a 680. Especially with this new monitor which seems needs a bit more powerful GPU to keep frames above 60fps as compared to what I would need for a regular 1080p monitor.

FPS decrease is normal.

 

Games are roughly around 30% more demanding in 1440p resolution than 1080p resolution.

 

Yeah go for a 680 if you want to. Everything will be better but 580 SLI at the end of the day will give you better FPS. So in terms of FPS, you are downgrading but in everything else it will be an upgrade.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I have another question which is related to hardware. Is it normal to have pixelated video when watching videos at 1080p full screen such as on YouTube? I have noticed that I have to watch them non fullscreen to get a very crisp video, other wise its quite pixelated.

Well a 1080p content will look sharper when minimized compared to full screen on a 27 inch monitor however it shouldnt be really noticeable.

 

I recently sold my 1440p monitor and all my 1080p content were perfect with that monitor. No pixelation at all.

 

Can you check if this happens on a different 1080p media? bluray or a mkv video?

 

Maybe it is youtube acting up.

Yeah its just youtube. Other media like bluray and mkv look perfect.

Yeah I'm actually about to return my 1440p monitor. Its got 4 dead pixels grouped together in one spot on the monitor. I think im just going to go back to a 1080p monitor once I return it.

In all honesty I thought I was going to be seeing more in games as compared to what I was on my 1080p monitor, but thats not really the case. They do look better and the color contrast on this new screen is amazing. But I really only see alot more on webpages and the like. So not really worth the performance hit im taking.

Which 1440p? Your running a 580 sli and the dual screen is the problem? Dead pixels is ****, did you get this from Korea? Seriously, either update your rig or expect me to keep ridiculing you for trying to run dual 1440p's from a 580 sli ..rolleyes.gif if your sig rig is correct..yes get the 680..did i read right?

Like I stated in my first post, my 1440p is the ASUS PB278Q 27" 2560x1440p to answer your first question.

Im trying to figure out where I ever stated I was running dual 1440p monitors. Please open your eyes and l2read before you reply with anymore of your ridiculing replies.
