Quad 7970s vs 690 SLI. That's two thousand dollars in just gpus. Rofl. This is the highend, we're not concerned with the problems of the masses.

It isn't comical at all, the expense of the GPU's are irrelevant, most reviews don't push things too far because of the limitations from product to product. It has to be done in a fashion that can be replicated by potential buyers, that's all i'm saying.

You made up some expectation that Lev was referring to, when you are the unrealistic party. Ppl who are packing quad sli/cfx will be packing the heat. It's par for the course. Frankly, I don't even know what you're point is. I get the feeling in a round about way you're trying to defend the 690s?

That there is a separate topic from what you're making now regarding the reviews. Like I wrote above, these reviews are silly and not meaningful to the market. It doesn't enlighten me in the least bit because it doesn't show how these highend cards will behave in a highend environment. Oh how I long for the days when reviewers actually disassembled the cards and took pcb shots, meat and potatoes, and actually overclocked like it meant something.

Erm, what's difficult to understand? See below:-

No overclocking on those cards... useless review is useless.
I get 27000 on 3D Mark11 with 4X 7970, and they only get 20000.

His comment was daft, hence why i said lets be realistic. Remember it's not just Quad SLI/CFX users that view such reviews, people like to have a realistic comparison of their Single and Dual GPU systems on how they stack up against other cards in the chart and against the money no object scenarios.

As for defending the GTX690, be serious. I'm not a fanboy, i'm an adult. Besides the fact i totally hate Dual GPU cards, and have done for years.

I don't really care about two card sli/cfx when I'm in the market for quads, you know. It's a different game...


Btw, what's he got to be realistic about? He does actually hold the 3dmark 11 record and under him is a 690. Then in heaven, quad anything Nv = trifire 7970s.


This review is meaningless because it doesn't actually help anyone understand the truth. One looks at that review and they have NO CLUE the reality that Nv gets hammered in Heaven because the review fails to show it. The guy that posted that review posted it for a reason, to show parity between the cards. Imo that's a bit misleading. Hell those skyrim numbers are a joke. I've never seen numbers like that on my quads, these guys made that up rofl. Skyrim scaling on quad 7970s is broken. Has been for a longtime now.


Anyways, no overclocking in the review is pretty damn silly frankly put. What forum are we on here? LOL.



*Btw, here's another crap review. This one has serious fabrication written all over it and I'm pretty sure this forum has already been over this review.

I'm using 4X 7970 and gaming at a crazy resolution of 7680X1600, and it's working fine in every game I own. But probably that Tri-Fire 3X7970 would be enough for 3X24''.
The 7970 is always a better choice then the 680/690 for high resolutions and multiple cards set-ups:
-more VRAM
-better scaling
-better overclockers

Then why you selling one of them? tongue.gif

Heaven 3.0 is AMD favoured it's common knowledge, hence why it wasn't included otherwise it would be completely misleading. 3DMark11 favours Nvidia, which is why 18 of the top 20 records are held by nvidia. Benchmark scores never show the full picture as you know....

LOL. You're telling Lev to be realistic, but why? This is highend, his concerns are valid here.


You say the reviews are fine, appeal to everyone, but the people that are actually buying them ya know. Fluff reviews, half baked, especially that vortex one, damn.


What's your point?

from what i read he already has a 690 and second on order right.. if so i say keep it that way
unless he sells his 690 and its block for a a relatively good price.no offence but i doubt that he will good a good price cause people are just gonna low ball him.
and then having to buy 4 and 7970's is gonna be more of a pain but might save him money.
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102982 x4 = $1600 +$400 or more on water blocks + fittings = roughly $2000
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814130781 = $1000 +180 for water block + fittings = roughly $1200

the 690 route would be easier and save time.
