so...680 SLI is faster than everything else in BF3 Surround maxed out?

$3200 cheaper for better performance...what is this.

just goes to show how messed up SLI gets once you mess with more than 2 GPU

Farcry 680 SLI beats 690 SLI lol

Lol what a poor review. How is possible at bf3 surround a single gtx680 to have 25 fps the gtx 680 sli 97,8 and the gtx 690 53,3.

Performance will improve for the Titan with newer drivers. it is still a very new card after all and a lot of people didn't receive their cards yet.

and serious question...how do people run triple/quad SLI/CFX without watercooling?
the cards are literally stacked so how does air even get into the coolers in the first 2/3 cards?

When not benchmarking, it is assumed that people turn VSync on to rule out screen tearing. That way if the cards are capable of say 150FPS max in a game, when capped at 60 or 120 FPS the cards will share the load and run cooler.

After seeing the 5GHZ in CPU-Z towards the end on the 3DMARK and what not, i would have thought they were at 5GHZ on the other games too. Wouldn't make sense to have it at 3.3Ghz for almost all the review, and then 5Ghz for that?

They said they use their normal test bench (some asus board and a 3960X) for testing and then used their 5ghz 3970X for the overclocking tests...

Because the graphics in these games suck compared to what the titans are capable of handling. They are being bottle-necked.

It's not just that, if you look closely at the charts, it's sooo inconsistent. I think they mixed up some of the GPU naming.
Either that or this is one of the worst, most unreliable review period. Should be banned from appearing on OCN.
