[HWZ] NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1070 SLI benchmarked preview - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I got 100% scaling on my 7950 crossfire at 5760x1080.... Windowed 30 fps... Fullscreen both gpu at 100% jumped at 60fps and never moved from that in one of my game... Even arma showed 85% + scaling


Sli is kinda dissapointing..

Thats why i'm so disappointed with the scores.

I think you're missing the point of HB bridge, it's mostly to reduce microshutter, it will not appear in average framerate graphs, especially not at this res. Because it is targeted at very high resolutions, above 4K, like 1440p surround and 4K surround. You are still fine with regular bridge (hard, not flex) at 4K or below.

which is why i only acknowledged the HB bridge in my comment, Nvidia created an absolute minefield with their release;

"1080/70 now available..." "... we have only produced two copies so far"

"Founders edition.." " Is the same chip as the 1080, thermal throttles, screws over our partners and is a fancy word for reference"

and finally "we are going to greatly improve sli scaling" "we produced an high bandwidth bridge. what? you think the HB bridge is going to improve scaling? where did you get that Idea from?!"

also, 1080 sli can barely run 4K. monitors going beyond that are rare and probaly dont even support their G-sync. add that to the minefield.

If you can't tell I'm super salty

The benefit of the HB bridge is that the data passed between the cards at higher resolutions no longer has to be passed through the PCI express slot. If you are running 2x 980ti and 4k some of the data has to be passed through pci express, with the HB bridge there is enough bandwidth to be able to use only the bridge.

Tom Petersen (Nvidia) explains it pretty well in this video:
