Thread starter wasnt kidding when he said he was upset with ATI and the limited bandwith of his crossfire setup and eyefinity lol!

QUESTION

I am planing on picking up two PNY GTX 580's to use in an Nvidia 3D surround setup when Acer releases there 27" 1080p 3D vision monitors very soon. The extra ram on this card could be very useful for a Nvidia surround setup. Question is would there be any problem using this 3GB card as the primary card and a reference 1.5GB GTX 580 in SLI. I'm assuming they would be fine but wanted to ask, I don't see the point in paying a premium for multiple 3GB cards in SLI if the other cards could be cheaper reference cards. After all only the ram of the primary card is used.


Thanks

No, thats wrong. If you SLI a 1.5GB GTX580 with a 3GB GTX580, you will only get 1.5gb of usable memory. If the amount of memory on two cards being SLI'ed are different, both cards will only have the effective memory of the lowest amount card.

Makes sense, I knew it would scale back the clock speed if one card was clocked higher then the other but didn't know how it would scale if the ram was different.

Thanks for the help, two 3GB's it is.

I would suggest getting the monitors first and seeing how they work with your current gtx470 SLI if you haven't already sold them. No point in getting expensive 3GB GTX580's unless you truly need them.

I'm not worried about the 470's in Nvidia surround, they should be fine... But I'm still selling them.

My new case I am building requires I water cool my CPU & GPU's. No way I am pulling the coolers off the golden edition cards for waterblocks. I would rather upgrade to 580's and put waterblocks on them.

OP can you tell us some VRAM numbers when you get the card and do some surround gamings please?
i'm very interested in VRAM intensive games such as crysis. i suspect crysis will max out the 3 GB
at the massive resolution of 10240x6400 (that's ur res right?)

I will update my original post located here with the tests: http://www.overclock.net/nvidia/9124...-vs-580-a.html

The good thing about nVidia is you can monitor VRAM usage unlike AMD. I highly doubt I will approach 3GB VRAM usage unless I crank up crazy (unusable) AA levels. I did hit the 2GB limit though on the 6970's pretty easily.

I will also be updating the following post when I get EK water blocks in for the 3GB 580's:

http://www.overclock.net/water-cooli...d-build-5.html

I will most likely be getting a 4th 3GB 580 seeing as Quad-SLI actually scales at these super high resolutions.
