I would never go back to AMD. Drivers are horrible.

Done.

Where SLI is completely useless is in reliable performance across all games I mean what help SLI will give me in No Mans Sky, Deus Ex Mankind Devided or new World of Warcraft Legion. 3 games coming out this month and none has SLI support.

So form my point of view spending another 1200$ is useless if you can't really use it. If you think playing benches is not fun and you play more then 10 games and you don't think bragging about having more matters don't get SLI.

I have been an SLI owner/user for over 10 years and can tell everyone now that SLI has improved significantly. I can also tell you that SLI still has issues to this day to include microstutter (whether you want to see it or not, Nvidia has formerly acknowledged its existence) and performance scaling inconsistencies (based upon game encoding and/or graphics driver issues).

Needless to say, based upon 10+ years of gaming in SLI, it is truly a great experience to finally have a single card that I can use to game at 4K/UHD and UQHD (3440 x 1440) resolutions without having to use a second card.

I can only imagine how much the Volta Titan card will leap over the Pascal Titan... biggrin.gif

I've been in a similar boat, would rather not have to use SLI. Have been using it since it's conception with the PCIE variant of the 6800 Ultra up until Maxwell Titan X.

That's an argument to have in the 1070 or 1080 owners thread. At the T-XP level it's akin to telling someone not to buy a ski boat unless they like being on the water...

This is the high end of the enthusiast food chain here and quite frankly if you can't afford to buy 2 Titans, you probably shouldn't be buying the first one to begin with.

edit: I am saying you figuratively, not literally you. Sweeping generalizations are one thing, but I'm not of the habit of telling individuals how or what they should spend their money on thumb.gif

I will honestly admit that I almost purchased two GTX1080 cards instead of the Titan X. Part of 'the save' for me was the fact that all GTX1080s were sold out for so long and then the Titan X was released and was in stock. I read as many early reviews as possible to see how well the new Titan X worked compared to the GTX1080s in SLI as well as compared to my two 'old' GTX980Ti cards that I had in my main gaming rig. Needless to say, it ended up being a great decision. The Titan X performs on par with my two GTX980Ti cards in SLI while overclocked. And this comparison is with the Titan X at stock speeds, so an incredible upgrade IMHO. I have played several games with all settings maxed @ 4K/UHD and just amazing how smooth the game play is compared to the SLI setup. Also, my minimum frame rates actually increased on average over the SLI configuration. Microstutter for me is noticeable when using the GTX980Ti SLI configuration. I'm not quite as sensitive to it as others, but still it's there. The Titan X offers something truly unique along with that nasty price tag - true single card gaming experience. I do admit that the GTX1080 gets oh so close in some games, especially when heavily overclocked. But for me, there extra shaders (1024+ over the GTX1080), extra 4GB VRAM, and 384-bit bus were enough to convince me to take the dive into the Titan universe. If I were asked to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing. The Titan X Pascal is the answer to your single card gaming wishes.

What's the consensus on modding the bios at this point? Is it possible?

Possible? yes

Probable? possibly, but not for a while.

Hah- figures. A custom bios will be sweet on these cards.
