Talk me out of 670 SLI - Page 2

post #11 of 76
Time - i mean new cards are coming out soon. We know AMD will have something for the holidays but Nvidia could be releasing something in July for all we know. The GTX600 series is already a year old, if you wanted to go SLi the best time to do that would have been last year.

do not but it if you are playing at 1080p monitors. Its requires a lot of cpu power which is not available in the market now. For bf single 670 is more than enough and from the looks of bf4 i do not think so it will require any upgrades. I myself have 670 sli setup i dont see a damn difference in fps sli/non sli. Just overclock the damn thing you'll be fine till bf4.

This is utter nonsense. You need to troubleshoot your system instead of spewing garbage advice that's contrary to every single publicly available benchmark.

OP, I added a second 670 about a month ago and I quickly found ways to utilize the extra power. However, as soon as the 7 series comes out, I'll be selling them.

I do not feel that a single 700 series card will beat a 670 setup. smile.gif

Really depends on a game, with SLI there will be a CPU bottleneck in BF3 multiplayer. I've seen several people say that they only got 10-20 fps increase when adding another 670. Even the mighty 3930K isn't quite enough to get constant 120fps in some 64-player maps. In many other games you will get almost 2x performance compared to single 670.

Fair enough but only marginally!

I have kind of seen the opposite in benchmarks.
