Excellent - thank you!

Overall, no - but perhaps for a game optimized for 4 cores if you can clock it higher. The 3930k is the 3820's big brother - 6 cores versus 4...I had a 3820 and it OC'd quite well and faster than my 3930k, but only by 100-300 MHz...I wanted more cores and I decided to sell my 3960x (from another PC) and return the 3970x I bought. As I've said previously - paring back this year. smile.gif

Yes, it's typically around 190fps but that's enough cushion to mostly avoid dips.

I have 5 120hz monitors but I only game on a single BenQ XL2420TX right now.

I guess I don't have my settings all set to ultra. I am almost all "High" with one or two things on "Medium" so that could be why. I went home last night and peeked at it.. but I dip to maybe 112 FPS once in a blue moon (I find that as long as you stay above 100FPS you never perceive an actual change in gameplay anyway).

I suppose with everything on ultra at 1080p x 120hz you could use 2 titans. I am still trying to figure out if it is worth giving up my 2x 670's for one titan.. but I know it will be an FPS dip.

I still see ~70 fps sometimes even with 3x Titans and a 3930k @ 4.5 GHz at 1080p/120hz. Mind you - it's around 190 fps most of the time, but it does dip when the action is hot on the screen. None of that matters, however, to the fluidity I see and feel on the screen...even with all those prior card setups i now finally have perfection, in my mind. smile.gif

You may see an fps dip with moving from SLI 670s to a Titan, but you will gain in a more appreciable measure - frame times. Posted by Levesque last page or so: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/forum/hardware-canucks-reviews/60166-nvidia-gtx-titan-vs-sli-crossfire.html.

1) I don't know what games you're playing, even simcity puts more load than 40-50 on my sli titans.
2) You need to graduate to a big boy resolution! biggrin.gif

Like I said - finally BF3 MP is perfect at 1080p/120hz. I can run 5760x1080/120hz but I prefer single screen for the fluidity. If you're happy with 60hz IPS panels at 1440p then great! Online multiplayer has different requirements, at least for me.

Don't let them hold you back! There's something to be said for basically guaranteeing yourself an excellent experience by running sli titans at 1080p. (except crysis3 maxed, but crysis3 is a jerk) smile.gif


IMO the more I think about Titan the weirder of a product it is to me, people will say it's niche but what niche does it actually fit in? There is some circular logic, you get a 6gb buffer and the potential to add more titans later which makes you a bit future proof but the majority of people who can spend 1k$ on a gpu I would guess don't really care about being future proof.

.

I said 90% of the games which is true biggrin.gif everything to last year or so including BF3 are around 40-60 usage on 2560x1600p and only some big AAA games this year can utilize more since you locked to 60fps they will not go more then 60 usage on SLi at 1600p. which is maybe 10% of the games like i said.

I had to push Far Cry 3 to 8xAA to actually start utilizing them around 80-90, at 4xAA its 50-60

I dont like multi monitor setups and i hate TN panels so i have to wait for 4K or stay with 30" 1600P and bare with this low usage tongue.gif

Would love to have seen them throw Titan SLI in though. I mean, we all know you can SLI/Crossfire lesser cards and get more performance. But people interested in Titan aren't exactly the penny-pincher type that go for the best balance between cost and performance. Titan reviews should be about sheer performance for the most part, and while including these 1-vs-2 comparisons is interesting, they should also compare using 2 Titans as well, because anyone even interested is Titan has already decided that price/performance is taking a backseat.

Here ya go ..................... thumb.gif

AMD is better in the regard.

For my purposes and most people on water I agree with you. I could see why it might be nice for some people on the stock cooler who still want to keep things quiet.

Yea, but if you think about it, the titan will still beat out the 8970 and the 780. It will likely still be a better decision then a 790, as the 790 will *likely* have the scaling issues and come in somewhere very close to 3x titan when you 2x 790. It is a pretty special card that can bridge 2 generations and still be the card on top...
