While the increase of performance over a 3 way classy setup is not that great, there is more to the equation.

Firstly it would lower heat and power by quite a bit. Secondly you could always add another card or 2 later. Third with the lower heat and power you could push the titans further, and there are already some impressive benchmarks coming from overclocking titans.
Plus better performance at higher resolutions as well. If/when I get my 2nd and 3rd 1440 monitors it will be nice to have them pushed by titans.



Anyway enough of hijacking/price talking. I am looking for numbers and numbers alone now. I would like benchmarks, because the ones thats been posted so far are for 680 (2gbs, i think). I know they aren't out yet so benchmarks may not be that easy to come across, but from what I see in those ones posted it looks like a close race between 2 titans and 3 classys... maybe not close enough though

Well I guess I'm going to find out which setup is truly better.

I put my cards on ebay just to see if someone would snag them, and after ebay fees I made $1650 off the 3 cards. Just got to pay for shipping, but thats still more than the $1500 i hoped for. Which means I will be SLI-ing 2 Titans.

I personally have had some issues with tri-sli (finally got it working) but im hoping the lower heat and power of the TItan SLI setup will be just as good (at stock clocks) as my tri-sli 680 setup, and maybe with a bit of tweaking be even better because it will have better airflow, meaning I should be able to OC more.
