[Fudzilla] AMD Has Working Malta 7990 Cards. - Page 6

post #51 of 170
What I was trying to say was, I have not heard of anything being over quad-fire. 2x7990, there is no such thing as 3x or 4x7990. Titan x4 will demolish anything AMD has, and releasing a dual-GPU single PCB will not change that fact. Nvidia simply has AMD beat at this stage and AMD releasing a 7990 will not change that fact. Like I said earlier, for people with money in hand, the Titan is simply supreme over anything AMD has to offer right now.

And the flagship of amd duals, 2 7970ge's for under $800

Nvid could do the same with 660ti's

thats too many skus that will eat away at any single gpu card that the dual gpu card will compete with directly.

not to mention the added costs of "custom" cooling designs that have to be made...

seems like a logistical nightmare.

A "7770 X2" would be pretty pointless and wasteful since there are single GPU options available that perform better, use less power, and you aren't wasting ram like in a dual GPU situation. I'd take a 7950 over 7770x2 anyday.

The rest are some interesting options, but given the amount of extra engineering that needs to go into dual gpu cards I don't think you will see any of them. Basically the only reason we see GTX690's and 7990's produced is for bragging rights over the fastest single card. Manufacturers arent nearly as interested in filling all the middle ground.

This card will help AMD's sales. The general public will have simple questions like "what is the fastest video card?" and that would be the 7990. They may purchase it, or they might ask what else this company (which is already in their mind as the top dog) has to sell. They might end up buying a 7970 if they can't afford a 7990. Most people don't request "what is the fastest card you sell, but it can only have 1 gpu on it, go!" It's a plus to be able to state you have the fastest video card in the world. When your pricing is cheaper than the slower competition, that's a big plus as well.

Most people use their budget as a guideline as to what cards are in the realm of possibility for them to purchase. If they have $1000 budget for a video card, and they want the fastest for that much money, the answer is going to be 7990.

Titan owners disagree, since they already had a choice between a 7990, 690, and Titan.

Heck, even some 690 owners want to switch over to Titan, but no Titan owners are willing to take them up on that trade....

^ mainly because a single cpu option is always better than a dual? Plus I figure optimization will come for the card later, it always does, which means it'll be a nice lil' piece when everything is smoothed out. No offense but if AMD hasn't smoothed everything out by now, the 7990 won't really get much better. Next gen is coming and a lot of focus will go on that instead of previous gen cards, always does. You generally see performance tweaks either early and it works out or much later down the road as they tweak for everything in general. That's been my experience.

The GTX 690 doesnt cool very well in a mini ITX case tongue.gif

Can't say i've experienced any real buyers remorse over it though.

No its going to be a pair of 7970's. Best bang for the buck right now. I know. I just bought 4 of them last week.

I'd rather a Titan over either. AMD's AFR just plain sucks and is micro-stutter hell, and they have sub par dual-GPU driver support compared to Nvidia. And the GTX 690, while it has built in frame metering technology, seems a little lacking on VRAM if you're buying a new card right now. And of course, Titan is a single GPU, and at 1100mhz, is very close to GTX 690 performance.

For your needs you may only need one card but what about those who actually need the power only multi-gpu setups can provide.


Obviously someone using 3 screen setup then sli/cf is the way to go until a monster of a single card comes along.

But give me a single card setup any day and some of the remarks already made to this meant that!

Of coarse a couple of cards are going to beat a single card - no one that's daft on here, are they? biggrin.gif
