Your sound card won't run off of the CPUs PCIe slots but the motherboards so it won't take lanes and bandwidth away from your GPUs.

(Also no PLX chiped motherobard or motherboard that claims more than PCIe 3.0 x8/x8 with an Ivy actually physically increases your bandwidth. Just re-directs it as such and is bogus/pointless. If you actually need more bandwidth for 3-4 Way GPUs etc you upgrade to the 2011 socket with 40 PCIe 3.0 lanes. Just for future reference.)

Many good Z77 boards out at the moment and they are about to get a little cheaper with the release of haswell so maybe keep an eye out for deals over the next few weeks.
Maybe I`m wrong but isn`t 8x PCI-E 3.0 like 16x PCI-E 2.0? And yes a Z68 gen3 is using PCI-E 3.0 or is bandwidth test false then?

My second EVGA GTX TITAN just arrived today and I'm getting hair flickering with TRESSFX on Tomb Raider *sigh*. Anyone knows any fix for this?

Or here we go again disabling a GPU to get an optimal experience.

PS: Never, EVER, trust anyone saying they never had any problems with multi-GPU solutions. EVER!

What drivers are you running, bro?

I agree.

 

I am sure Multi GPU problems are getting smaller each day. And maybe one day they will dissapear, but for the time being no matter what, there is nothing great like single GPU gaming.

 

I am so Glad I opted for a Titan instead of SLIing my 670.

OCed Titan performs almost like a 670 sli stock.

First 314.22.

Then tried 320.20 beta.

Same issues.

I'm playing ultra settings, with ultra shadows, and 2xSSAA. But tried with FXAA and 4xSSAA and the hair still flickers with TRESSFX.

Hello I had a couple of questions about the Titan if that's okay:

1: What is the power consumption for a single titan, along with sli and tri-sli
2: When plugging in a 6/8pin to the card, do I need to plug power into all available ports or I can only use one 8-pin or 1 6-pin?
3: would an sli/tri-sli titan be a lot better than a 4gb 680 sli/tri-sli?

Thanks smile.gif

1. 300W per Titan is a good rule of thumb as it is the max it can pull within the ATX specification.
2. you need both pci-e 75 6pin 75 8pin 150 total 300 within ATX specs
3. Yes Titan has a bigger memory bus whereas gtx680 is very limited on that front.
You might however wanna wait for GTX780 and go sli with that it will cost you way less I bring this up because you state that you consider gtx680 instead of Titan to do the trick better have faster/core performance.

so about 600w for sli and 900w for tri-sli? Thanks for the info smile.gif
Yeah i expected that you'd have to plug in both thanks though lol
well i definitely don't consider the 680 better than a titan, but i mean like is the titan better by a very large margin? and I hear the 780 will have 3gb and I find that kind of small compared to a 4gb 680 or 6gb titan you know? thanks though smile.gif

300W per Titan + what the rest of your system can draw

That is a rumor I myself think the GTX780 will actually have 5GB as a matter of fact since I've seen it having the Titan's cooler design I'm 98% sure it will have 5 due to earlier leaks of a card with Titan's pcb rumored as Titan LE having 2 missing chips.
If you have the ability to wait for another 11 days you should to see what the gtx780 really is (probably we know the final specs by 18th just like we did with the Titan. (leak em baby!)
