(PS: And by the way, about Display port issue, its your problem if you were running Betas drivers instead of WHQL. And second PS, I don't see your GTX 680 Tri-SLI in Valley, why?)

I didn't show the only game I was able to play.

I showed him the only game I recorded on video when installed my QuadFire setup, just check for yourself the date on the video.

And they were with 12.11 beta 11 and not latest drivers

Crysis 3 was running fine on my Quadfire
FarCry 3 never ran ( it always crashed on my rig) = Unisoft issue.

If you want to see how much games I was able to play flawlessly. (Notice you don't see FarCry3)
Don't expect me to change my whole setup just because there is one game I can't play

Scroll down to 7680x1440 and see the amount of screenshots I have provided.

Err.... when was the last time we had a decent driver WHQL Karlitos?

Edit: 1/17/2013

Todays date? oh yah...

13.1 which is basically 12.11 Beta rebranded.

I am still waiting for that memory fix... Got one 7950 still left from my old quad system for the miss.

Here's my take on the matter. Among the 7970 Trifire and 680 Tri-SLI, I'd say go for neither and instead get two Titans.

Here's why :
- more VRAM
- lesser chance of hitting VRAM wall with 6GB cards than with 3GB ones, especially at that resolution
- better acoustics (2 cards vs 3)
- better thermals (2 cards vs 3)
- better scaling (2 cards vs 3)
- one less waterblock to buy
- option to avoid watercooling since the stock coolers are already good
- better than 680 Tri-SLI by the same margin as it is worse than 7970 Trifire (Karlitos' charts), but gives you all those advantages over having to run 3 7970s
- less micro-stuttering than AMD's multi-GPU solutions (no personal experience though)
- option to go Tri-SLI if/when the requirement of more performance is felt
- Titans will probably see a drop in price by the the time Tri-SLI is required
- no regrets when 8xxx series comes out, because according to rumors they wont beat Titans, let alone OCed ones. but they will definitely beat 7970s.
- newer, longer lasting setup. Titans are at the start of their life cycle, whereas the 7970s are at their very end.

No matter how I slice it, 7970 Trifire will probably always have the price/performance advantage. Watercooled 6GB 7970 Trifire will cost more than non-watercooled Titan SLI, and although I'm considering double standards here, the stock cooler of the Titans do allow pretty high overclocks, probably just 100-150MHz slower than watercooled ones.

You can stop considering 680 4GB Tri-SLI since they dont have any advantage over 2GB ones (as Karlitos said earlier), and 2GB Tri-SLI because of low VRAM, and by that same logic 3GB 7970 Trifire too. Maybe 3GB will prove to be enough even at that resolution, but why risk it when you have the option? Its not like newer games are starting to require lesser VRAM. When the consoles with 8GB VRAM come out, cards with 2/3/4GB memory will probably have more problems than cards with 6GB VRAM.

If money is not an issue, Titan SLI would be the better option in my opinion.

Hope this helps! thumb.gif

AMD HATE MUCH?
13.1 IS UNLIKE 12.11. Say that when i have NO frame latency problems at all. How does people use their AMD cards fine and dandy while yours has issues? It's your card mate

Costs 5 times as much aswell, 2 titans? 2400 bucks here, 4 7970s? 1600, Ok so not 5 times as much, but look at the price differance.

Hell on australian prices i could build an entire quadfire rig sans the watercooling for 2400 bucks, Then for just a tad more 26-2700 i could watercool the whole thing.

No, and I won't elaborate on this since I already did in the thread.
