[VC] NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan To Be Released on February 18th - Page 61  

post #601 of 999
As soon as the reviews get out and we won't get told what it is doing there someone should take a IR camera and see if it is actually there for a reason.
Or that it is just for keeping people from sticking their finger in the fan (However I don't see why a simple mash wouldn't do the job rolleyes.gif

Hopefully it runs as good as it looks for those who are lucky enough to get one (or two, or three).

Let's hope it does as I'm getting one biggrin.gif

I know copper is expensive (and not to be used frivolously) these days, and I know that they plan on making a bunch of these (so they won't actually be super limited like ares ii or whatever) but I honestly can't get past the idea that for $900 this card should be made entirely from freaking solid copper. 100% copper vapor chamber and fins, 100% copper unisink, 100% copper shroud etc.

Sooner or later your gonna reach a point where your taxing your system with no noticeable improvement to your actual image quality.

Should I be surprised that you also have an under-powered gpu setup for 1440p thus explaining you backing him? No. Until you guys run the proper gpu power and actually see the difference in running High AA all while holding 60fps your opinion is invalid sorry. Games like BF3 and Far Cry 3 are huge on the difference between AA being all on vs. being disabled. In fact having 2560x1440 even makes it more pronounced because of the amount of eye candy it brings. Again you guys will never see this because your rig will be dropped to under 30fps if you crank up AA so your never seeing what your missing. Just wait until you try Crysis 3 in 1440p next week. Your going to be begging for more gpu power.

Copper costs 7 dollar the kilo what do you call expensive well more expensive that it used to be but you see my point.
It doesn't cost that much at all.

I don't know why they are still making alu heatsinks.

I once thought about using man made diamond plates to laser cut a waterblock baseplat out.
It would be the best water block ever made since it has a conductivity of 6x that of silver but at what price as it would cost a few grand to make one. (If I ever get too much money and I don't want to give it to charity I will make one of those biggrin.gif )

I back this statement you should run the Playstation 2 emulator without AA take a screenshot then run it with AA and compare.
You will notice the difference ant it'll be big very big.

Did you just compare a Playstation emulator to modern pc gaming?

rcfc89 there's a reason you catch a lot of crap and you just showed why above.

First of all who said anything about no AA versus 8XAA? I said a display with a higher pixel count (and density) does not require the same amount of AA as a 1080p display in order to look as good. That's not something we made up and it has nothing to do with our bad eye sight.
What does showing me benchmarks have anything to do with what was said above? All it shows me is that higher AA requires more power, it doesnt show me that higher AA=an actual perceptible difference in image quality. I dont doubt that they do to a certain extent but sooner or later you'll reach a point where your just taxing your system for no reason.

You seem like the type of guy who would run the "highest AA" because it taxes your system more, rather than it actually makes a difference. Kind of how 2xSMAA in Crysis 3 looks better than 4xMSAA but doesnt affect your performance as much.

and btw I already intend to purchase a second 7950, I have no issues with my setup, I know my limits.

While I like to run my games at 1440p and maxed out AA I have to admit I really don't notice a difference between 8xAA and 4xAA at 1440p. Now its noticeable if its turned off but 8x and 4x look the same to me. Of course I run at 8x just out of principle! wink.gif

Keep telling yourself that. Whatever it takes to make you feel better for being way underpowered gpu wise to run 1440p.

RC, you have been proven wrong so many times on this matter. Maybe when you start building your own system, instead of buying them pre-built and acting like you know what you are talking about, people will take you seriously.

At this point I honestly believe you have NO IDEA what AA is really for, why it was introduced, and the reason you don't need high AA at ultra high resolution. Even though it has been explained to you by several people several times over.
