Share Your Views 690 Sli Vs 3 Way Sli Titan

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Will this be a fear fight considering its 4 GPU VS 3.

We all know the titan is more powerful I cant seem to find a good review online so if this is a repost forgive me.

Thanks

I currently own 3 titan I have been trying them out on games beach to see how well they run. I would like to see how 3 or 2 would compare to 2 690.

Here's a review that shows 690 quad SLI and Titan Tri-SLI.

Because of the fact that Titans are more powerful than the gk104 GPUs in the 690, and the fact that SLI scaling for four way is poor, the Titan Tri-SLI beats the dual 690 set up every time.thumb.gif

In depth like what..?

Edit:

First and foremost the gk110 gpu in the Titan offers ~30-40% more pure horsepower than the Gk104 chips in the 690. This coupled with the fact that quad SLI scaling is usually pretty terrible means that three Titans will give your games more raw power to work with.

Second, the Titan has 6gb of GDDR5 on a 384bit bus versus the 690's 2gb on a 256 bit bus. (Technically the 690 has 4gb but since it is two gpus, each gpu gets 2gb which results in 2gb of usable memory). The width of the memory bus isn't usually an issue until you get into high resolutions like 2560x1600, surround setups, etc, but I'm guessing you didn't drop $3k on gpus to play on a 1080p monitor tongue.gif

The amount of memory, however, has a bigger impact on performance. Most games don't go over 2gb at 1080p or 1440/1600p, but many do especially with high levels of AA or several mods enabled. However, newer games are requiring more and more VRAM. For example, according to alpha benchmarks from BF4, that game will use 2.25gb or more at just 1080p with 4xAA enabled. At that pojnt the 2gb of memory on the 690 setup would definitely be holding you back.

With that said what a good 1600P screen ? Was considering 4K but dammmm price.
