even if you dont want 3d games quad 580 have problems cause its not meant to be supported by the drivers
4 gtx580 will be stronger then 2 gtx595 but again GTX580 in quad sli dont support 3d gaming not talking even on surround 3d its just impossible and 2 GTX595 in quad sli will be 100% stronger then 3 GT5850 3GB
the GTX595 has 2 cores each one is a GTX580 core down clocked it will have 3GB of memory and it will support 3d in quad core unlike the gtx580
4 GTX580 cores (on the GTX595 SLI) will be stonger then 3 even if the 4 cores are down clocked!
look at the GTX295 it have 2 GTX275 cores down clocked
so each core was weaker then a normal GTX275
but in SLI the GTX295 was stronger even then 3 GTX285!!!
even tough the 285 was a stronger core from the begining then a 275 core, and the 275 cores on the 295 was down clocked the 295 in sli won over then 285 in tri sli...
it will probably be the same here with the GTX595, not only that the GTX595 have GTX580 cores and not GTX570 cores...Edited by ranerX3 - 2/2/11 at 10:15am
