I won't bother trying to convince anyone here about AMD either way as this site is just a joke when it comes to AMD and the hate against them.

970 SLI punishes the 980 Ti in benchmarks only. Me and plenty of other people on this forum wouldn't waste our time with multi-gpu setups (and the problems that come with them) if we were getting payed to do it.

Exactly. Who cares what multi-gpu's can do, they stink. Single fastest gpu is the only way to go.wink.gif

I don't know why people even bother with multi-GPU under DirectX and OpenGL all these years. Neither of these API's even officially support multi-GPU. That's why software devs have to always patch in support for it and make "profiles" because it requires a mountainload of dirty, ugly hacks to get it up and working somewhat decently. And then you have to deal with AFR which is just horrible. I'd always rather buy a single faster GPU than two lesser GPU's. I know some people have e-boners for mega high-res and all that but it's not worth it for me. At least Mantle and all its derivatives (DX12, Vulkan) will support this stuff natively, especially for VR, so it won't be a problem anymore...eventually.

Maybe the Quadro based cards due to the lack of competition in that realm. Just like how Intel can charge quite a bit for high core Xeons.

What about those of us that order both when we are upgrading, and return which one we like better? Because that is how it should be done if you have the extra cash and time. I personally try AMD and Nvida both when I'm upgrading. Just so happens that last times I upgraded, I went with Nvidia because when I upgraded, it just was the better product between the two. You'll find that a fair amount of those people you are referring to as "AMD haters", actually give them a fair shot each time. And ironically those "AMD can do no wrong" people tend to be the ones who don't give both a fair shot. Just my 2 cents of what I've seen here on OCN after being here quite some time.

I like how gsync works on my overpriced monitor. I went gsync because it works better than freesync. I would choose a less performing nvidia card over a better performing amd card because in my case my gaming experience would still be better. If there was an AMD card that would have double the performance it would be another story but just pointing out there are more reasons why someone would nvidia over amd than fanboyism

EDIT
I totally qouted the wrong post. Oh well. Lazy af so not changing it. thumb.gif
