SLI as Nvidia tech Crossfire is what you're looking for.
These are dual gpu cards so you can CF only 2 for a total of 4 gpus.
2 way CF not 3 way SLI I don't really get how you get 4 cards and still only have 3 way sli unless you put one in another rig.

Also the Nv tax as you call it is still a small price to pay compared to 4 295x2's since those would be 6000 dollar. (It is under 9000!)

Seems like a pretty big toss up from what someone would want to buy. For a dual PCB AMD is the only realistic option, for $1500. But it doesn't really get you any advantages over 780Ti SLI or 290x Xfire.

Seems like a lie because the other sites claim lower than Nvidia frame times and less spikes.

So I'd argue those results anyway BF4 has Mantle and this is the card for it rolleyes.gif

I looked at PcPer and TechReport...
They all seem a bit different honestly. I dunno what to think of that, other than variances in BF4.

The 7990 was a bad product on release though. This is great all round.

Interesting chart, but for what its worth anyone looking at 1440p gaming on BF4 id recommend just going with a cheap NV sli setup. I initially had an r9 290x and then r9 290, and maybe its just me, but I noticed virtually no difference with AA on or off. So with my gtx 670 SLIs I have AA off and run at 85% res scale (2Gb vram limit frown.gif), but I average over 90fps with full ultra settings otherwise at 1440p.

I cant honestly see why you would spend this much money on a dual gpu setup. I honestly think the sweet spot would be 4GB gtx 670/680 sli setup for Bf4 at 1440p. If I had 4GB vram my cards would be absolutely fine.

Just my thoughts.

AMD's 295X2 is much cheaperer than the TitanZ and it is out right now. AMD does care about their customers since they release a bargain of a marvelous design and it will be readily available long before nVidia push out their over-priced and over-rated card.

If you don't mind paying the nVidia tax, stick with your 780 TI Kingpins. I will be getting myself 4 295X2s and put them in 3 way SLI.



Please tell me you're trolling. If not you proved my point 100%.

GTX780 Ti SLI is better and if Titan Z gets water cooled, it will be even better.
