[TPU] NVIDIA Working on GK110-based Dual-GPU Graphics Card? - Page 15

You keep saying that dual gpu cards are the cost of about 3 of the single cards. A 680 launched at $500 and the 690 has always been $1000. it was exactly double the price. The 790 would be no more than $1300 and I bet if AMD releases some really great cards it will be even cheaper because the entire NVIDIA lineup will go down in price. Just becasuse you don't have use for a dual gpu card doesn't make it worthless. Maybe some people want the most power they can get in the smallest footprint possible whether there rig is static or mobile. i think it's awesome to have a tiny mitx build with the power equal to about 2 780's. Plus if you game at 120hz 2 cards really does make a big difference. A lot of 120hz monitors are small and mobile. I agree it's a niche product but why be so against it just because it doesn't make sense to you. As a hardware enthusiast I would love to see a 790 and a titan ultra.

I did some research on this and, at the time of launch of the dual GPU equivalent, the single GPU cost:

-680s were half the price of 690s ($500 vs $1000), but were perpetually out of stock and price gouged by the retailers.
-580s were decently close to the price of 590s ($500 vs $700) from what I can tell, but I can't find April or March 2011 prices.
-7970s were also relatively close to the price of 7990s ($550 vs $850), though the latter has gone up to over $900 or even close to $1000 recently.
-6970s were nearly half the price of 6990s ($370 vs $700) and did not drop much from the MSRP in the few months between releases.

Seems I was wrong. Disregard those parts about money then. Let me clarify though. I don't have a use for a dual GPU (though I think a 6990 is similar to crossfired 7870s?) and I don't expect to either. However, I don't think that they're bad because they're niche, but I don't get why a company would focus so many resources on this niche, especially since a 790 would be roughly 70% more powerful than a Titan and take away from all those sales. Obviously the enthusiasts would know that they could add a second and third and fourth Titan, but if your budget won't allow it, you'll take the 790. I'd love to see a Titan Ultra in an mITX rig for the poops and giggles, but I don't see why you'd need that much power. A 780 or 7970 GHz is more than enough for most stuff at 1080p 120Hz. Sure you have the fun of a small build, but you don't have much expandability. And define what you mean by "small and mobile"? The smallest 1080p monitors I can find are more than 20".

Except BF3, Crysis 3, Metro Last Light, Far Cry 3, Sleeping Dogs, Bioshock Infinite. You know all the most popular title's currently. In order to fully take advantage of 120 hz you need to be above 100fps at all times to see the difference. In Ultra settings neither of those cards could even pull off 60fps constantly. Again your speaking on a subject you have zero experience in. Dual gpu's without a doubt have there place and are needed to experience the best of what Pc gaming has to offer.

that's a personal opinion and to be honest doesn't speak on behalf of the masses here, at least not me.
I'm sure the HD 7970 can hold down 1080p 60Hz just fine and I know the GTX 780 does, 120Hz is another story.
the GTX 780 does do better of course then the HD 7970 at it though.

unless you like playing on medium settings...

Cutting down on AA helps a lot not that you want to do that when only running 1080 p

Hopefully he meant 1080p 60hz because no way either of those cards are pulling a constant 100fps+ in today's demanding games. BF3 is really the only title I play that I can hold over 100fps constantly in 1080p and 60fps in 2560x1440p. I have to cut things way down in Crysis 3 to hold 60fps in 1440p. Metro and FC3 I just need to cut down the AA to 2-4x anything over that drops me into the 30's which is unplayable imo. I always laugh at people who say multiple gpu's are a waste and not needed. As long as there are games like Crysis 3 that can drop me into the 20's when maxed out there will always be a need for more gpu power. So many people are misinformed on Benchmarks that are released on Gpu's. 95% of the time these fps results are the max fps the card hit in these titles. Not the average fps during actual game play which is what counts most.

I can see a mITX build with a dual GPU for Surround, Eyefinity for Radeon users; even the GTX Titan with all that VRAM can struggle by itself..
that's my own vision of using one, I'm sure there are others..

Ohhh man, I don't think I've laughed that hard at a forum posting in a while. Just the way you phrased your sentence and how I imagined your condescending tone of voice. Comedy
