Mayhaps this influenced their decision?! TSMC was not having a good year at all.

I was really on the fense about what to buy, but I game at 1440p, and have a 1200p usually watching movies at the same time. Which leads me and many others to..

Needing the extra VRAM. I would probably have ended up with a 690 if it had 4gb per GPU and 384bit memory bandwidth to power it. The 2GB limit is very real, and very annoying frown.gif

But since its a SFF build, you *can't* put 2 cards in there to get the same performance for less.

Not the usual ohh im going to get 3 titans because im expecting THIS, THIS and THIS.. IT WILL NOT HAPPEN!!!

So you get +1 from me..

Btw about the volcano issue.. with $1100 bucks i can get 2 7970 with blocks for them and still have some spare money for a mcdonalds meal lol...

In the future I might look at a custom loop, but it is way past my skill set right now, which is another reason for Tita SLI. It is something I feel comfortable with my skill set at this point in time. The reason I am looking at the h220, is because it is one step better than closed loops, and not as advanced as custom loops. I feel this will be a good start for me, and I can do it with my skill set. If all goes well with the h220 I could see my self doing a full custom loop this time next year.

It depends what you call SFF build and whats your goal...
You can put 2 titans on a thermaltake lanbox with a matx board for example...
Is going to be a tight fit thats for sure XD

That isn't really *that* SFF when you're talking using mATX boards with 2 PCIe x16. And you might stuff it in there, but good luck OCing, or really doing much of anything in that case with that much hardware in there.

Ugh, completely off topic, point is when you shrink component space down, dual cards are not possible. And the 690 has real limitations when it comes to memory.

Se i thought about that but the main reason for this upgrade is absolutely horrible stutter i have with my 670's , see ne of my cards is TOP edition and other is just "normal"
I tried to match the clocks with software but it doesn't work , as soon as my cards get maxed I'm getting horrible stutter , and i mean horrible , looking at MSI afterburner it's 35-38 ms at best with constant jumps way higher than that to the point it gets insufferable.
Now i know in this case single GPU would be a better choice but from the data it looks like Titan will be slower than 670 SLI so i decided to go with 690 , still SLI but Frametime is much , much better.
As for the 7970 there are lot of reports about bad frametime in CF and that scared me off.

I dunno, this thread has shown some horrible frame time graphs for the 690. I have no experience with the 690 and don't personally notice micro stutter at all so I'm not really an expert here though...

IIRC the 690 has hardware to smooth out the frametimes between its GPUs. This was one of the major improvements over the 590, where frames would come out erratically.

Who said thermaltake lanbox its not sff? So your prodigy is not a SFF because is not smaller than any of my shuttle pcs then if i apply the same logic then...
Im just telling you that is possible to put 2 titans if you know what case to choose and still SFF.. Not what ifs and the about overclocks and such... I wouldnt try to overclock in a sff without the proper cooling solution to begin with...

That would be assuming I believe my prodigy is really SFF, which obviously it isn't. The thing is huge.
