heres what I get with my current setup at 4.05

and at a higher clock then the test here

4.5 P30,1xx

just compare the gtx 295 gpu score and mines wow huge difference.

http://service.futuremark.com/compare?3dmv=593911

If you think something is wrong with that score then provide yours for comparison with your i7 and tri sli setup

Pretty much man people with more then 2 gpus are only using it for bragging rights and/or for benching. You dont need that much gpu for current games. So when something new hits allot of people with high end cards are quick to bash something that comes out that is better then what they got.


Me I will just sell mines and get the gtx 295s no need to cry
Trust me when I get 965 up n running i will be giving scores but as far as now, Your not completely right about Physics being way higher with PHYSX on. It's not always calculated that way. And you never know how and what CPU clocking theyre doing. Without the bench stating what exact test bench they are using its all up in the air. And I will say it again QUAD SLI and QUAD XFIRE suck in games, everyone knows it. there just EOL products being released with no R & D. And with the marketplace being as it is.. well thats for another discussion.

Also please dont say im quick to bash products. I anaylze things and they say it as it is. And ive been buying Nvidia products for a long time and kind of know there scheme. You can go ahead and sell yours, I could do the same... But in the end im simply stating that 3 GTX 280's will probably scale better still. It was the same when 4870x2's came out, I was going to buy 2 of those but I knew right away 3 GTX 280's would be much better and in many games they were.

Also With your last comment, Crysis at 2560 and Very high doesnt play very well still I dont buy my stuff jsut to bench unfortunatly, I just like having the best But since watercooling Nvidia multi gpu's is a no-no, There a no-no for me.

Also I know your getting these cards and want to justify the purchase, We've all been there and done that...It's the same way your stating that Im justifying keeping my 3 gtx 280s and not buying the gtx 295. well If I wanted the absolute best I would just go 3 GTX 285 instead... Since it seems you do too, why wouldnt you go the same?

I myself had 2 7950GTX's and well after that I have never bought a multi-gpu on a single card solution. Esp since the 8800GTX came out and pwned 3 months later.

Doesn't look like there's really a performance differance.


IMO it all boils down to heat output, driver support and price, and if we study nVidia's previous GX2 trends, we notice how it fails in all three every time.


The nVidia 7900GX2, 7950GX2 overheated so bad that they would, literally, desolder one of the GPU's from the PCB. Nevermind the abysmal driver support. Heat was a little better managed with the 9800GX2, but even these would incinerate your processor if your case airflow wasn't good. they still ran HOT. They are no longer supported at all, and the drivers fail sooooooo hard.


And then there's the price...all the previous GX2's were priced about 150 bucks over what they were worth.


When they worked, tho, they performed excellently, thing is they overheated so much and the drivers sucked so bad that they rarely lived up to their potential. nVidia's mistake.

What exactly do you mean the drivers dont support the 9800gx2 any more? Thats rediculous. My favorite ones yet where the 180.48 that supported dual monitor in SLI mode. As for the heat, yes it was hot but it runs about the same if not cooler than the gtx 280. One point I do agree on is PRICE!! There is no reason to EVER sell a dual GPU card for OVER DOUBLE the price of the same setup in SLI. You could buy 2 9800gtx for cheaper back when the thing was 500 dollars.

Wow... gotta love these threads.

ATI Boys always say "Its obvious that these tests were done with outdated drivers so the results aren't true"

and

Nvidia Boys come out with "Nvida is using a single core card" or "Nvidia haven't got GDDR5 yet so its unfair" or some crap like that and a big flame war begins!

Does it really matter anyway, this is quad SLI which no-one will ever get (realisticly) and both card perform about the same anyway, its all about the price
