You need enough RAM to completely fill the buffer for 1 card (it just gets mirrored to each extra card), along with whatever the OS needs in the background, plus whatever RAM is required for the CPU tasks from the game. Having less puts a hurt on you because you then start to rely on the pagefile to act as psuedo-ram, and even a good SSD cant compare to the speed/latency of RAM. Some games have a tendency to fill the GPU VRAM completely with textures, even if it doesn't need to, they are just coded to not offload until more VRAM is needed...this is not for all games, but some, which is why that 1:1 is important.

I hope you're right, I'd hate to have to get 64GB of ram when I get 3x Titan X. That's good news though, thanks.

I didn't think GTA5 needed a lot of juice. I may get a 3rd one or get titans. Resale on titan x might be tough because of the amount of memory you need to run them not sure but it's easier to resell 980s because two of them runs circles against a single titan x and the cost is about the same.

I'm wise and older. I know the trends.

Add in all the custom bios available for the Tx and all the benefits of single gpu over sli and the Tx becomes a lot more attractive of an option. It will be a coveted gpu for a while and while it may lose some value over time I doubt you'd be unable to sell them fairly easily down the road.

That's my dilemma, I will eventually sell this cards especially if pascal is a great improvement, I need to purchase the card that will hold it's value and is easier to sell later down the road.

you have to extract the pny bios with gpu-z and copy the settings 1 by 1 to your pny bios and then flash the modified pny bios to the pny card. flashing the strix bios to the pny card would give you a $600 paperweight frown.gif

Hello 980 owners, I need your help.

I currently have 2 x reference Titan-X in SLI, and I'm massively underwhelmed. Despite the huge 12gb VRAM, the cards are slower and don't overclock as well. My friend and colleague at work demonstrated a Firestrike bench where he achieved 24.5k with two 980s in SLI, for reference, I can push 26k absolute maximum at OC.

His FPS in GTA V are comparible to mine at similar settings (minus the MSAA).

So now I'm thinking, I can sell the Titans, get 3x980 in SLI and pocket about £200 ($300) in change thumb.gif

I know 3-way SLI scaling won't be as smooth, but DX12 coming and the ability to finally stack VRAM, the 3-way setup might be a smart and cost-effective solution. I'm not as keen on the forthcoming 980ti as for the likelihood is I won't save much money and the card itself is just a cut-down Titan.

Two questions for you guys: How have you found GTX 980 x 3 to perform in-game, especially at 4k resolution, and, am I absolutely nuts for considering this?

Appreciate your advice. biggrin.gif

I would go for 2x 980 TI instead of 3x 980.

2 x 980 TI will save u more money and i think it wont be much slower than 3x980

Why would u want that? I have a PNY 980 OC2 and its wonderfull. Extracted bios and put hard OC in there so i dont need to use software OC and its boosting to 1480 stable and +400 mem without voltage increase.
Only use it for gaming tho not benching but if it does this OC on stock voltage i bet it can go alot higher with just the standard voltage increase.

Your going backwards. You have 2 gtx titan x cards. You dont want to sell them and get threee gtx980. If you want more power add another titan x but the more cards you run the more problems you are likely to have.
