They should have used those coolers on the 290s.

I knew just a matter of time, Very very good, but I am still holding off till maxwell or am I???

Lets see what nvidia brings out after this, If they release a dual version of the 780ti, I am defint going to sell this gtx 690, then my next card afterwards will be a dual maxwell, if and when that will be.

Bring it on nvidia, I am very desperately waiting to see what nvidia will do this time, please release dual titan or even a dual 780ti(if thats even possible)

This is going to be awesome.

I doubt NVidia is going to bother with a dual GK110 card....

A "Titan Ultra" would be nothing more than an insanely overclocked 780Ti....there are no more shaders on the GK110 chip to enable beyond what the 780Ti has.

If only AMD had this kind of product on there CPU end Amd seem to only have competitive GPU with NVidia there CPU are far behind intel, Which as made intel lazy.

Though I really curious as to how the dual gpu on one board gona work considering the heat 1 290 put out

First fermi gpu or 290 which have/had the worse thermals

That's not even remotely accurate. If it were, you'd give evidence to back up your claim.

For example:

Ryan Shrout @ PCPER says "CrossFire has caused a lot of problems for AMD in recent months (and a lot of problems for me as well). But, AMD continues to make strides in correcting the frame pacing issues associated with CrossFire configurations and the new R9 290X moves the bar forward."

Last I checked, Ryan has always been AMD biased and is clearly not some hack who hasn't used AMD products in a decade. Even his site used to be AMDMB.com before he changed it so he wouldn't look completely biased.

Also, there is no shortage of people having crossfire problems here: http://www.overclock.net/t/1440600/r...with-crossfire

Plus if you look at their amd video card forum, there are plenty of non-user error issues.

If it has decent cooling, decent price, 3 slot cooler, could be good.

Yes, I'm going to scour the internet searching reviews or other forums for "evidence" to support a "claim" on this forum....when I'm referring to this exact forum and these exact types of threads. This type of thread, being a rumor thread. Now, go troll else where....or at least post something half way intelligent.

Look, considering amd's drivers stability, mgpu problems and the thermal failure on r9 200 series, well, gtx titan ultra or 780 ti black edition whatever it will be called the next nvidia's top weapon is a by far a superior choice.

I have systems with both Red and Green right now, and have for years --- the whole "drivers suck for x or z" is just hyped up drivel anno 2013. By and large, both sides are just fine right now and most problems that you read about are when new games come out that are released without sufficient quality control and testing. Wait an extra month to play that "awesomesauce new game dudebro" and such problems tend to disappear.

Its not like the 290x really puts out that much heat is just the blower on it sucks and the tdp isn't really that much more then the 780ti at load its maybe 20w. Nvidia just has a nice stock cooler I actually like the style more than any aftermarket cooler.

Until you can tri-SLI or tri-CrossfireX such cards, I honestly don't see why anyone would bother with such a most probably downclocked card rather than having two single cards in SLI or CfX.

This would be the first single card (x^n gpus) really usable for 4K gaming at 60+ FPS!! Great timing as I just saw a 4K TV claimed at 100 HZ for 1K USD locally!

We just need Nvidia to join the epeen contest with 790 Ti (Dual GPU 780 Ti SLI on a single card) for the King of 4K crown!

Bring it out right before winter so all gamers can save on their heating bills.

1000$ for a 4k res monitor is still way too much, even the 1440p screens should be cheaper by now.
