[Various] Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan Reviews - Page 168  

post #1671 of 3575
Driver improvements are usually specific to architecture, not SKU. A driver improvement for Kepler will benefit any Kepler card, not just the 690 or the Titan or whatever. At least that was what I always thought. Now improvements in SLI scaling for Titan will probably happen...

There's another thing though , availability ...
New Egg changed status to

OUT OF STOCK. ETA: 03/21/2013
Because it is , but they changed a lot of stuff too , story is back on track at least it relates to Crysis 1 , you play actual character not some mindless zombie without voice , maps are bigger , psycho is back .... just from the top of my head.

I thought you meant in terms of gameplay mechanics and graphics.

Personally while playing both online I can hardly tell the difference.

GK110 is just Kepler guys which is still mostly a die-shrink of Fermi.

But this is BIG Kepler! biggrin.gif

...and if there were it would also increase the performance of the 680 and 690 equally as well as Titan.

No fair using logic.

The graphics in SP are fantastic in Crysis 3. It took a patch from Crytek and mods to make Crysis 2 look truly good. Online is a different story though.

No fair using logic.

The difference in driver improvements between AMD and Nvidia this year are due to the fact that GCN is a brand new architecture that still has tons of room for optimization. Kepler, however, is getting long in the tooth and most driver optimizations have been implemented already...

Not sure what you mean mate , i was referring to Titan driver improvements but as someone above mentioned any improvement in drivers for Titan should be reflected in 690 as well as it's the same architecture.
Alas nobody knows that for sure at this point.

Well multi feels pretty much the same , to be honest I'm not a huge fan of Crysis multi , i bought the game primarily for the SP.

I thought Kepler was more than a die shrink of Fermi or is it the one in-particular.? ... thinking.gif

edit:
seems your right I reckon...
Quote:
For NVIDIA, Kepler is the embodiment of that concept. Kepler brings with it some very important architectural changes compared to Fermi, but at the same time it’s still undeniably Fermi. From a high level overview Kepler is identical to Fermi: it’s still organized into CUDA cores, SMs, and GPCs, and how warps are executed has not significantly changed. Nor for that matter has the rendering side significantly changed, with rendering still being handled in a distributed fashion through raster engines, polymorph engines, and of course the ROPs. The fact that NVIDIA has chosen to draw up Kepler like Fermi is no accident or coincidence; at the end of the day Kepler is the next generation of Fermi, tweaked and distilled to improve on Fermi’s strengths while correcting its weaknesses.

For our look at Kepler’s architecture, we’re going to be primarily comparing it to GF114, aka Fermi Lite. As you may recall, with Fermi NVIDIA had two designs: a multipurpose architecture for gaming and graphics (GF100/GF110), and a streamlined architecture built with a stronger emphasis on graphics than compute (GF104, etc) that was best suited for use in consumer graphics. As hinted at by the name alone, GK104 is designed to fill the same consumer graphics role as GF114, and consequently NVIDIA built GK104 off of GF114 rather than GF110.

More logic, you meanie.

Even if performance doesn't improve much I assume(and hope) they'll improve multi titan scaling a bunch considering some of the benchmarks that show worse scores in sli/tri-sli.

I'm grabbing two titans the only question is do I go for 3. kookoo.gif

If you want to pay $1000 for +12% better performance, sure go ahead and buy the third one
