I don't have that card sorry.
If its clocked to 1 ghz than I guess it can be referred to as 7950 ghz. But if its flashed to the regular boost model (boosting to 925mhz), than it may be referred to as boost.
But you may want to clarify with an asterix if you add ghz to the 7950 because it will invite increased questioning from outside of this site (which I have seen).
Because you use FXAA.
I like your articles but if you want to be 100% unbaised use SMAA and/or MSAA.
Plus FXAA blurs everything. Its like putting uber thick AR coating on your monitor. It does get rid of jagged edges but textures are no longer sharp which can be really bad on high res monitors.
my GTX 580 SLi can keep up at high settings @ 2560 x 1600 ( average off 40-55 FPS)
But i am looking to upgrade to GTX Titan Sli
I was hoping to see what the Titan Sli-3sli does with a game like Crysis 3 at High resolutions.
Its probably the only sli setup that can reach a steady 60 FPS @ 2560 x 1600
Crytek CEO Cevat Yerli said:
"There are brutal expectations around the PC version of Crysis 3. So this time we promise to melt down PCs."
Who knew he was serious?
Hilbert, thanks for effort its awesome read as always
Any chance to see vram usage test with multimonitor resolutions at 5960x1080 or even 5960x1200?
nice piece Boss
Argh, the wait for me to play this game is killing me I want to know how well my card is going to do but have to wait til Easter+ to buy it.
Nice work Hilbert, thank you!
I did the same scene and here are my results (if anyone is interested in 7950 CF performance):
1080p Very High FXAA:
Frames Time (ms) Min Max Avg
12535 169557 43 121 73.928
Why was Asus HD7990 was not included in these test?
My guess would be that Hilbert didn't have one to do so.
oh. still a very good article. thank you!
can anyone in the forum have a radeon hd 7870 xt (tahiti le) ? can you do the crysis 3 run (same as in the performance review), and report the results? thank you.
Don't savage me if I am reading these results wrong. It looks to me that I need a 690 for my 2560x1600 monitor, rather than the Titan?
Depends on how you look it Leveller.
I just like an Sli setup.and a GTX 690 just doesnt cut it for me personally, 2x 690 is a no go for me causse driver whise it sucks to play on 4 gpu`s
So im going for a Titan sli setup and im guessing i will be safe the next 2.5 Y to get my games @ maximum detail
I can see your side. So if the drivers were right, and 2x 690's scaled properly you would go with 2x 690's?
I've got 2x 580's right now. On a regular basis I play games and feel the games are not playing right. I check the Nvidia control panel and find that SLi has turned itself off - it seems to happen randomly.
I wouldn't say it was an issue. But I am looking forward to a single card setup. The physical messing around with 2 large cards, drivers, finding SLi has decided to turn itself off - I think 1 card will suit me, and the 690 looks much better in those Crysis 3 graphs. Again though, if I am reading the graphs right - only reason I say this is because I'm really surprised that the Titan is beaten by the 690 - I assumed Titan would rule supreme.
Saying that, I have seen a few compute graphs and Titan seems to destroy all other cards in that arena. Therefore I wonder if Titan would be best as a PhysX card. I honestly have no idea if that makes sense - I am definitely not techincally minded in all this stuff!
WoW at GTX590 and 6990 Crysis 3 loves multi GPU's.
Funny to see how well Titan does at 1080p vs GTX 680 (if you forget how much it costs), but when you look at 2500x1600 it only does +9FPS vs. GTX680.It may or may not improve in future with better drivers, but right now, Titan is disappointing because of it's 1000USD price tag.
See charts here:
I would say that Titan is the worst priced nVidia card in last few years.
Good review. But, using msaa would be great. most people would prefer msaa over fxaa.
And i think msaa would be better than fxaa to compare gpus from both sides neutrally.
And please do a cpu review (ofcourse after taking rest).
