Titan in sli-possible bottlenecks

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I may be going down this road soon. My 2600k is at 4.5 and my sli config would be running at x8.

Thoughts?

Resolution and games are important factors here.

All gamesgames, triple screen res @ 120hz not worried about that.

Concerns are chip and pci-e lanes

1kke is correct,some games may seem like there is a bottleneck but they just arent optimized properly,for example BF3 for me wont use more than 80% gpu usage yet tomb raider 2013 is in the 90's was alsi told the higher res monitors will push the usage higher...

No. If you need an explanation why, look at the ten million reviews on high resolution gaming. Gaming GPUs don't need any PCIe bandwidth to work. There was an old review out there where they put AMD cards on pcie x1 and the performance hit was negligible in many cases.

Well I've never heard that before. I figured there may be a small bottleneck due to x8. My chip up to par?

Yes. CPU is fine at those resolutions.

Lets hope cause I just ordered the titans. I've heard of others complaining of bottlenecks with my chip although I'm not sure the res. I wanted to wait for the R9 290X but I feel I need the 6gb at my res on high /ultra settings.

Bf4 beta is eating 3.6 on medium settings and skyrim will crash in minutes with my texture mods.
