When it come to actual gaming AMD's multi card (I am talking more than two cards/GPU's is superior. This could change like AMD is releasing the Frame pacing correction, maybe Nvidia is fixing this issue but I have not heard that it is a priority so who knows. Part of it is the chipset setup and lane sharing/extending and part of it from what I can tell in real game situations is simply the current architecture is simply not conducive to that many cards working in tandem. (remember some of this is just my hands on trial and error with the current GPU's)
I can tell you that 3 x / 4 x 79XX scales very well with the appropriate resolution.
Well I agree with that lol.. I was seeing what would be the best path as I cant add another 460 and have it mean much
I am looking at top settings 60fps+ @1080p so not sure what the best option is
If memory serves, wasn't the 460 limited to two card/GPU SLI?
EDIT* From [H]
The GeForce GTX 460 looks like a very small version of the GTX 470. It has NVIDIA’s standard high-gloss black plastic heat-sink shroud complete with NVIDIA logos, and a large 80mm fan centered on the shroud. The video card features two 6-pin auxiliary power supply connectors and a single SLI bridge. Tri-SLI is not supported on the GTX 460, so there is some limits in place here with these more budget cards. On the business end, there are two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a single mini-HDMI port.
Dats what i thunk, single SLI connectorEdited by Red1776 - 6/22/13 at 2:32pm
