7990 Malta

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
I haven't seen any new info for a few days about the Malta release. I am patiently (not really) waiting, so I can decide between it and the GTX Titan. I won't SLI the Titan at $2,000, so depending on the performance of the new 7990 I may finally be going bac to AMD.

In any case, does anyone know of any recent articles that have been released in the last day or two? thumb.gif

Unless you have limited space why you dont just get 2 7970? Or 7950?

Heat.

If I buy two 7970's I need 2 blocks. If I buy 1 7990 I can just get 1 block.

Cheaper solution, easier to cool, and with the new Malta it may be just as fast. Or close.

This is like dual GPU vs single powerful GPU type of thing. Two will obviously be faster but brings the downsides of crossfire setup as well as insane power consumption. It's up to your personal preference, since both options will handle everything you throw at them. I'd personally take Titan if i were to spend that much into a gfx card, which i wouldn't in the first place.

I think dual-GPU single cards also suffer from CF/SLI issues.

Well, with a GTX 670 4GB already, I'd wait before I jumped into anything. If I were in your shoes, I'd wait for Malta to release and see how it stacks up after a few weeks, then make the choice.

That is, unless your settup is really struggling with what you are doing on that 1440p screen.

OP, you can just SLI another 670 4 GB and you'd be good to go.

Yeah, but I just bought Crysis 3 and not sure if 670 SLI will run it on high. Although my first card OC's to 1260.

Then, I need another rad possibly and maybe another pump/rez and block.

Not sure if what I have with 2x240's can cool 2 OC'd GTX 670's and a 3770k OCd.

Dual 670 are arguably faster than a single Titan. If you're worrying about the cooling I'm positive that 480 would be sufficient for dual GPU + CPU. 2x 670 would also run cooler than a 7990 and because you already have one i suggest you SLI it.
