I've had plenty of sets over the years and many crossfire sets but rarely compared a single fast card to two in tandem with the exact same system setup.

a 780 ti is not that much faster in games than a 780.. maybe 10 fps difference max

I have been at 1440P for over a year and haven't ran into a situation that required 3GB of VRAM, I have seen close to that usage; but there is debate as to if the game is just consuming it because it is there.

Right, and some if that memory bandwidth is also due to bad scripting. But my question in regards to SLI vs single GPU. Its not an easy task solving

This will depend a bit on the drivers. There were reports of issues using SLI combined with G-sync in the blurbusters forum (crashes, stutter,...)
See: http://forums.blurbusters.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=207
And: http://forums.blurbusters.com/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=616

But there are also people that have it working fine. Someone commented in this very thread about it some pages ago. He was on the latest beta drivers so that might have helped.

Also you can always start with one if you're not sure yet. And add a second one down the road, right?
To get decent frame rates at 1440p, a SLI is certainly not a luxury.

Sup.. :cheers:

Right, absolutely. Start with one and take it from there - thanks mate - and yeah, G-sync with beta drives, hmm.. can be problematic. Nvidia is working on both and I have full faith in them

I don't see this monitor getting close to 120 fps (the reason I'm buying it) without at least 2 cards (at present). I'm not too worried about vram right now. Really does sound like 3GB will do for at least a year or two. I'm willing to deal with SLI issues (which I haven't really had in a while) to get 1440p @ 120hz.

On the other hand, if you'd rather not deal with SLI, and you think you need that memory, you could certainly pick it up and run it with one card...I'm pretty sure that there'll be a card that can run ~120 fps @ 1440p within a couple of years. Don't have to max the monitor out as soon as you get it.

I agree. I can't imagine that 3gb wouldn't be sufficient for another year or two. As far as SLI, the issues are minimal these days, and usually worked out once a game has been out for a bit. I have had zero problems with my 780s other than the BF4 beta.

post #2719 of 8206
Subscribing for updates... I am so pumped about this monitor, and I am ready to play with it. Actually curious to see which is better, gsync or the new light boost, and I have 3x780s and 4x290xs ready for comparision. I was considering trying to run three of these, but I am not sure even the quad 290xs could handle that well.

Would prefer a 4k 120hz but I don't really see that happening any time soon. Would love to be proven wrong but I am not holding my breath.

The 6 GB version aka Titan Black, because that is essentially what the 780 Ti 6 GB is... lol, is due to 4K content.

Lets assume 3 GB is in most cases more than enough. But what about the time you  hit the ceiling, you run into the limit and if you only had 1 GB extra it would be fine ? the GTX 880 will get 4 GB and there is a reason for this. The extra cost of a 6 GB version and considering that I will have the card for 3-4 years at least is also a dead give away why one want more than 3 GB

Nvidia just released the Titan Z which is two Titan Black on the same card which is basically 780 Ti 6 GB SLI. Price for the Titan Z will be around the $4500,- mark while the other option is roughly $1900,-.

Anyway... I am sure I will end up with an SLI config and just live with that ... lol
