post #1261 of 1345
Basically it's the same as original titans after reading this thread.

1. Get 1 / 2 cards for 4k.... 3 but you'll only get a 10%(2-8) frame improvement.

2. If you want surround 4k your better getting a large format TV for 4k since sli is basically broken in most games passed 2 cards (AKA TITANFALL)

With that being said, I still think SLI makes sense for laptops.

I miss surround a lot but between the game performance and Nvidia borking drivers at times I just gave up on multi-monitor and multi-GPU setups. Plus when you start using 3 cards it's just crazy in my opinion in terms of power requirements and cooling. It was nice having a massive heater like that though, winters were never cold.

Regarding laptops, I suppose SLI does help. They still have to rely on developers to properly utilize it and when it works they get close to desktop performance if not better.

Reminder guys.

Please be respectful when you disagree with other people's opinions here.

This is exactly the situation I found myself in. I have almost always ran SLI or CF for performance reason. My experience with surround setups and 3-card configurations never was positive. Surround was nice but its lack of support simply was to much of a bother particularly for newer titles. There is considerable potential for 3 card SLI but unfortunately is in never utilized and falls by the wayside while optimizations focus on singe and double card drivers.

I game from my couch these days and run my pc from my television. At times I very much miss my desk, but ultimately once I got used to using the windows zoom function, it is an overall better experience. Now if I worked from home regularly or was a student, I don't see how my current setup could be usable.

I've yet to go into the 3 monitor realm, although I'm considering it purely for real estate. As you can never have enough... biggrin.gif

Hey guys, just want your honest opinion on this.

How do you find the Titan X so far, and do you honestly think its worth the money? It comes to around $1500 CAD after taxes for me, and just dont know if I can justify that cost.

Believe it or not, I am also contemplating getting 2 Titan X's in SLI, however I heard a lot of games dont even support SLI, or run into trouble with SLI.

My other option is to get one Titan X, and build a new computer, which comes to about the same price as two Titan X's.

What you guys think?

What's the rest of your computer? Use the Rigbuilder to put your system into your sig so we can see what you've got now.

It does its job well as far as 4k performance in SLI. Every single game playable maxed (some without AA) at 60fps+ at 4k. Very sexy. My complaints (apart from price):
-No backplate
-No real voltage control
-Power limit too low
-Too loud in SLI; really needs to get put under water. These cards are louder than my heavily overclocked 7970 CF setup was.

Not really. IMO only worth it in the following scenario:
1) You cannot/will not wait a few months for the inevitable 95%-as-fast-for-40%-less-money cards
AND one of the following:
2a) You need more performance than you can get from 290X CF or 980 SLI and are willing to get a pair of Titan X cards
2b) You only have one PCI-e slot (or are otherwise committed to single GPU), need more performance than the 980 or 290X, and do not want to get the 295x2

The only game I've played in the past few weeks which didn't support SLI was Serious Sam 3, and it was getting ~90fps maxed out on a single card at 4K (SLI disabled). My experience with Titan X SLI is just as positive as it was with 780 SLI - most games support SLI just fine, and the ones that don't, don't need to to stay over 60 FPS

That's your call. Personally, I would only recommend the performance level of Titan X SLI for 4K or multi-monitor gaming. You're almost certainly going to be CPU-bound at lower single screen resolutions. If by chance you're on a CPU worse than an overclocked 2500k for gaming, get a new computer and single card instead of two.

Thanks, I will do that later, but I posted quick specs below.

8gb Ram
(Will have to upgrade Mobo to support SLI)

IMO:
Large format 4k > multi monitor
have both

A pair of 980s gets the job done, but a pair of titans would have been better. Oh well...the next best thing is always around the corner! 12Gb might have been a bit excessive though. tongue.gif
