There's NCIX, but they not only have a hilarious mark-up to $1349.99 but take forever to get shipments out the door.

Took the plunge today and picked up an Asus Titan X. No more crossfire/driver hell with these 6990's! thumb.gif

People still use NCIX? Their sales prices are such a joke I stopped using them 5 years ago.

They're going to blow current gen cards out of the water IMO and really drive pc gaming along with DX12 to a new level of visual potential and awesome framerates. thumb.gif
Save you money! or buy 2 GTX 970's until then. When they come out just resell!
Not impressed by the Titan X at all. Great item for impulse buyers i suppose...

 

I'm not having any difficulties right now at 4K, you may.

 

I'm far better off making up my own mind on what to do with my money. And you mention 970's, and 4K as well...great 3.5Gig card and all for 1080P gaming. I own 7 of them for GPU rendering so I'm not talking like I read it on Facebook. Is your post a troll? Were you serious? :thinking: 

 

I have 2 Titan X's in SLI and like the power they provide and I haven't even let them breath yet.

I dont know man. Have had CF since HD 6970 and never had any more problems then with 1 cards. I did go back to 1 card since then but always ended up with 2 cards each generation. 1 card is not enough.

Yeah, I believe people have had issues with SLI/CF, but I do not believe the issues are as prevalent as some people make it seem.

Had CF 7970 and SLI 780 at 1440p, now SLI Titan Xs at 4k, and all have worked nearly perfectly. I did try 3x 7970 in trifire for a while and that was not a great experience, but two cards was awesome. Even 7970 CF pre-frame pacing fix was really good - you just had to limit your framerate to your monitor's refresh rate to avoid stuttering in some titles.

Obviously if you don't need the performance of two cards, you should stick to single card, but I don't really understand people who desire extra performance yet adamantly avoid two card configurations.

Through 3 different two card configurations over the past 3 years 3 months (since 7970 release), I had precisely ONE negative experience in a game, and that was 7970 CF on some of its early drivers in The Witcher 2 - it was a stuttery, buggy, unplayable mess for quite a while.

Here's a little something to calm the nerves - GTX-Titan X 4-Way SLI! biggrin.gif


I bought a pretty clean Pontiac Vibe with 85,000 miles recently for less money than you spent total on your GPU's. I'm not hating at all, seriously. I think mostly I'm relieved that my rig is fast enough to do everything I need from it and upgraditis seems to be in check. Everyone's budget is different and mine is at a point that I could go out and get a couple TX's but man am I glad I'm not tempted to. A pair of 290X's for $600 would be an upgrade for me, but again, I'm glad I'm not tempted.

Beyond that, I don't see why people are expecting current flagship prices to equal past flagship prices unless current flagship performance equals past flagship performance. More perfomance for more money sounds fair to me...

Maybe you are unaware of how the GPU industry worked in the past.

8800 GTX - USD 550 (Nov 2006)
GTX 280 - USD 650 ( cut to USD 500 after 2 weeks when HD 4870 launched) Jun 2008
GTX 480 - USD 500 Apr 2010
GTX 580 - USD 500 Nov 2010

The problem started from the 28nm node. I doubt we will ever see a return to USD 500 for > 500 sq mm GPUs . The process nodes are costlier- fab costs are much higher, design costs are higher, wafer pricing is higher and yields are lower than at the same point in the lifecycle of the process compared to earlier nodes (especially for the first year or two)

88800Ultra was really expensive card, around 700€+ in 2007, that was huge amoun of money.

Back in the dayz :

We do know NVIDIA has wanted to push up towards the $1000 graphics card segment for a while. Offering the top of the line for what almost amounts to a performance tax would give NVIDIA the ability to sell a card and treat it like a Ferrari. It would turn high end graphics into a status symbol rather than a commodity. That and having a huge margin part in the mix can easily generate additional profits.

Price gaps larger than performance increases are not unprecedented. In the CPU world, we see prices rise much faster than performance, especially at the high end. It makes sense that NVIDIA would want to capitalize on this sort of model and charge an additional premium for their highest performing part. This way, they also get to introduce a new high end part without pushing down the price of the rest of their lineup.
