2 x 290X vs 780 Ti Black Edition? - Page 4

2x 290x > any single gpu solution unless NV releases a dual 2,880 core count card, which they probably won't, and if they do it wont be for a long while. Micro-stutter is less of a problem than people like to think. It can often be solved with slight twerking of settings.

Had Nvidia released a 790 before AMD's 290X I'd probably already have purchased it if based at $1000 again. I like the dual GPU since they fixed 590's woes with the awesome 690. But I digress off topic. tongue.gif

I had both the 690 and the Titan and the latter offered much smoother gameplay even if at some rare cases the framerate dropped it still maintained a better experience. That being said I would probably chose the 790 too, although for $400 more SLI Ti would yield a great performance increase.

Just to get things clear. Vram is only going to make a difference if you are on a monitor setup that literally put's your vram into a wall. Massive amounts of vram is actually counter productive when it comes to memory OC'ing. That being said, thanks to Skyn3t's new V2 titan bios I can now run well over 7ghz when gaming & even higher when benching.

The new technology seems great but does it provide the kind of smoothness a single GPU does? My experience with the Titan was a lot better than with the 690.

No dual GPU or SLI / Crossfire set up will give you single card solution smoothness. So I think your starting to answer your own question as to what your looking for. wink.gif

Fact is that Gtx Titan has no difficulty catching 290x at casual resolutions; however there is a serious discrepancy between their pixel processing capacity. Eventually, it will pay off in 4K.

A GtxTitan with 224 TMU's @900mhz(which is a downright disgrace of overclocking for such a performance card) can be matched by a 290x at a higher overclocking difficulty level of 1145 mhz, so 290x is not for those who want more fps at ultra shader detail imo. It has more resolve than that.

I do favor going with the Ti and having the single gpu smoothness as well as the nvidia exclusive enhancements. But the 3GB vram worries me. The 290X CF should provide incredible performane but there could be heating issues and waiting for the third party options towards the end of the month is kinda hard as I sold my Titan a week ago and there are all these great games this month. The nvidia enhancements are appealing as well especially in games like Assassin's Creed IV and The Witcher 3.

900mhz would be one rather slow titan. Right now @ 1.212 (max stock bios volt's w/ normal LLC) i'm pushing well over 1202 stable while gaming. So, apply that to the 780Ti to put it into context, which will have a newer, higher quality PCB, hopefully with higher quality VRM's and you will see even higher stock bios OC's.

oh wait, my card's are under water. doh.gif OK, so reduce that to like 1137 or so, but still. 780Ti should have no problem's hitting 1202(multiplier of 13 until proven other wise) on stock cooler, stock bios.

btw, i find twerking with buffering/pre-rendered frame's squashes almost all stuttering issues. I just had to go through all that in serious sam 3, which isn't THAT intensive, even across 5760x1080.
