My opinion is the same. Extended draw distance makes very noticable difference as you said, and if only my GPU could handle it, I would gladly use max scaling settings. With extended draw distance at 0% all objects in the distance are missing many details
And this difference is even bigger in mountains (with extended scaling at max mountains in the distance have nice shading, at 0% they look much worse). Extended draw distance tanks vram a lot, so 970/980 is needed for that.
I think the difference is hard to see there... i took these comparison shots myself
0% extended render distance
100% extended render distance
Notice how much more detail everything gets... even the rock just over the road goes from just being a round ball, to being a very detailed rock.
Also up very close, notice how much more vegitation gets added - for instance on the palm on the left.
My main problem with the 780ti is the fact that I'm having to settle on using FXAA because any form of MSAA in some newer games causes a fair bit of stuttering which I can't stand.
GPU power wise the 780ti's are still more than enough.
Placed an order for a pair of EVGA Titan X's and my 780ti's should be gone by the end of next week, the Titan X is still on back order so not sure how soon I'll get them.
Fellow Gurus, I've now installed four Titan Xs. I've posted the results over at my local haunt:
Pete J's Four way Titan X SLI review.
Really impressive until you look at the minimum fps, it barely changes (even decreases) with more GPU's in the system.
Damn pete, well now youll be able to do some serious downsampling
Yeah stuttering due to lack of vram... gta 5, unity, watch dogs etc... the list becomes longer for each game release where that 3gb framebuffer is an issue :/
4xmsaa is ok in ACU, I showed you video, 8xmsaa not so much it slow downs to 10fps, but it doesn't stutter.
I bet you get stutter in ACU because of SLI then anything else.
I received my Titan last week and tinkered around with the vanilla version. Already out of the box I was really impressed. Clocks around 1'200 in boost without touching a button in Afterburner. With power target +10%, the card ran at around 1'340-1'360 (+200 core).
Last night I installed the EK waterblock, Acetal full body, together with the backplate (the backside does get rather hot...). Initial overclocking result:
Core: +250, running at ~1'450 MHz under load
Mem: +500, running at 8'000 MHz
That is only with the additional 10% power target. No overvolting, no bios mods.
Temps are settling at 57c with firestrike blended test on loop for 30 minutes. Watercooling is definitely the way to go with this card. I love it!
Edit: and it's so pretty, too:
Some of your scaling figures look a bit low.
Even Valley is quite impressive maxed @2160p with 4 cards.
Just ran my EVGA SC cards round Valley @stock
I would say the scaling is pretty good on Valley.
With a single card @stock it boosted to 1315/1752
With four cards @stock they boosted to 1290/1752
If they had all boosted the same the scaling would have been even better !!!
Grats on those scores. Yes, that was the first thing too when I compared the TX and 4TX benchmarks, they scale almost perfectly
I wish AMD would hurry up and release the 390x! Every day that passes I get more tempted by the titan x despite knowing it won't be the best bang for buck in a couple of months! The witcher 3 being an nv title and out in 3 weeks as well as needing a bit more power at 2560 doesn't help either!
I wanted to know what framerate titanX will push in gta5 @ 1440p (without MSAA) witha advanced settings sliders at full. Performance will dip even to 30fps in vegetation areas and there's 4.5GB vram usage without MSAA!
and here default advanced settings sliders at default, performance is much better
is there a Titan X card with red lights instead of green?
The EVGA hydro copper does have a red led iirc. Although, it lights the EVGA writing red, and of course, you'd have to watercool it.
So far, the others don't have red lights out of the box. You might want to search the net for modding the LED though.
I just ordered two of these cards. I couldn't wait for the 980Ti release so I'm now a TitanX owner. I should have them in about two weeks. I'm in Canada and everything takes longer for availability here. I don't know why. We're part of North America.
Congrats, I'm still waiting for mine to show up
Anyone here with advice regarding best drivers etc. for SLI? Thanks guys..and gals.
