When SLI works, which is rare nowdays, its scaling is so erratic, while TXP offers consistent performance all the time compared to dual 1080 where the 2nd card is an expensive paperweight half the time. Even worse for Titan X (Pascal).

If we could guarantee that 1080 SLI worked more than in 50% of situations, we'd have something like Titan X (Pascal) performance in some games and high scaling in others, but atm it's 20% scaling high, 30% worse than Titan X (Pascal) and 50% not at all or worse than a single card.

I'm doing fine with SLI getting an extra 25fps consistent on ESO.

It is best practice to have your main user account separate from your admin account, and only log in to the admin account when - you know - performing admin tasks.

Also, UAC must always remain on, and patches must always be installed promptly.

Computer security is important!

Never ran a second account . Never had any problems.

Makes you wonder what has been going on. Their flawless drivers has been one of the biggest selling points for buying Nvidia products for a long time, but they seem to really be dropping the ball with Pascal. First the DPC Latency issues and now this abysmal driver release.

Almost makes you wonder if there is a new team developing drivers over at Nvidia or something.
Hotfix out?

Just got done with some testing single Titan-XP vs SLI:



All games tested at max graphics with the system in my sig. Crysis 3, SWBF and Metro LL can all be played single GPU at 4K @ 60 Hz. Witcher 3 is close.

Crysis 3, SWBF, Metro LL would all be pushed properly for 4K @ 120 Hz displays this winter. A single Titan-XP won't even be close for 4K @ 120 Hz monitors. I couldn't get Witcher 3 SLI usage above 80% on each GPU no matter what I did, hence only 47% gain. The rest of the games averaged 83% FPS gain which is quite nice. Star Citizen would be playable with Titan-XP 4K @ 120 Hz if you lower some settings.

Go read ONE review about the Titan X Pascal and you will see there are quite a lot of games that barely run 100fps(not 144) at 1440p and a lot of games are to come which will be even more demanding, especially with the new consoles being released soon.

One Titan XP is certainly not "more than enough" for wqhd 144hz.

Agree. You're kidding yourself if you say one XP is enough at 144fps.

Well there you go. So naysayers of SLI , better save your pennies for another card...

I had dual Radeon 6970's back in late 2010. Got them because I had just gone 2560x1600 and no single card was fast enough. The crossfire experience was awful. Poor minimum framerates, stutter, input lag, game compatibility and crashing, you name it.

I didn't learn from my mistakes. When I again was a high resolution early adopter last year when I got my 4K screen, the only solution that was fast enough was to go with dual cards. I got dual 980ti's. I was willing to try it because everyone always says SLI is so much better than Crossfire.

To be fair, my SLI experience was indeed better than Crossfire, but that isn't saying much. I still had many titles that didn't work well with SLI, I had poor minimum frame rates, high input lag and stutter, and had to constantly fight with the SLI profiles every time a new driver came out.

I understand that for certain AAA titles, the SLI experience isn't too bad because they put a ton of time into optimizing their games for SLI, but I'm not really into "Call of Modern Battlefield: Online" so this was not my experience at all.

My SLI experience was what was behind my motivation to spend $1200 for a Titan X and an additional $1000 on a custom water loop this time around. I wanted to make sure I could get minimum framerates of 60 fps or above at 4K with eye candy turned on, in the games that I play, without ever having to go anywhere near SLI again.

Suffice it to say, I HATE SLI. If it works for you, that's great. I'm not going to tell you or anyone else what to do. But I'm never touching it again tongue.gif

Nonsense. My SLI has 50% scaling in ALL my games except No Mans Sky.

Vega just debunked what you just said ! SLI FTW!!!
post #2939 of 7589
I just basically confirmed Titan-XP SLI will almost be required for the upcoming 4K @ 120 Hz displays. Even Volta isn't going to have the power to drive such a display single GPU IMO.

We all know 4k @ 120 Hz displays will be the next "big thing" in gaming. wink.gif Actually, 4K @ 144 Hz is already said to be coming down the line. Some serious GPU power required!

This is clearly fake. I've been reassured repeatedly on this thread that SLI only scales 30% and is a total waste of time and money.
