IIRC there's already one or two users with SLI'd TITANs in this very forum.

lol , I am sure we will see more and more people buying Titan SLI as a few deals on websites start rolling.
I dont know about others but when I bought 7970s in Crossfire, It was to test how dual overkill looks like and then I sold one of my card because usability of 2nd 450$ card was next to zero.. i wonder how someone will use 2nd \ 3rd titan for gaming :/
as juggernaut said "there is a fine line between bravery and stupidity"

crossfire does not have glorious days anymore, stuttering, delay, latency many problems for AMD to solve, so it's not gaming wise to call it the fastest thing...

Reviews have also stated other things that you are ignoring. Things like how in practice, these things aren't particularly noticeable. Or that Nvidia's frame smoothing technique by its nature introduces additional latency.

So, I mean, there's a tradeoff. Additional latency, or uneven frametimes.

In terms of what? In terms of uneven times it makes a huge difference.

FCAT shows otherwise for the most part. Both companies trade places depending on the game when you follow the frame through the whole pipeline.

Why is it that these things ALWAYS end up in an nVidia vs. AMD war?

Why can't we just get relevant information and take it for what it is? Not a single benchmark has surfaced, yet the 7990 is already doomed due to perceived issues. Driver problems, surprisingly, hasn't come up yet, but I'm sure it will now that I've mentioned it.

This forum, back in 2003 - 2008 was a different place altogether.


I, for one, am looking forward to benchmarks and actual real-world tests of the 7990. I've long been a fan of ATI/AMD dual-GPU cards, having owned every version that's been produced and NEVER had a single problem that wasn't my own fault.

Will it compete with the Titan? WHO CARES? What's the point of a thousand-dollar card beyond "I can afford it, so why not!?" That market is so small that there's just no room for competition. And those that have more than 1 of them - they clearly have disposable income greater than the rest of the population. And guess what? That card will be outdated by next year too, just like every other king of the mountain, either by another nVidia card, or an AMD card...

And the battle rages on...interesting to see AMD and Nvidia still slugging it out long after the initial release of the 79xx series.
