Is your Gainward card the bottom card in your Tri-Sli setup?
It's definitely off, maybe i messed something up with the 570 benchmarks.
65/255/131 with FXAA
59/220/126 with FSAAx4
Also just noticed a few games no longer have CSAA, forgot that Maxwell had no support for that.
OK I'm having some issues with my card. I've "crashed" twice, once playing Grim Dawn and once playing Dragon Age, it's not a regular crash, it's as if the game drops to 0fps and it shows up as not responding, I have to ctrl alt del to stop it. I was at 40c when it happened just now so it's not overheating and my overclock is fairly common. Both times I was duplicating screens to my TV, no idea if that's a factor.
EDIT: Event viewer says "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered.", so it's the Nvidia driver crashing, is this common? Is there a fix?
Any "real" advantages in having 3 x GTX 970's in tri-sli over 2 x in SLI?
3 cards needed for 4k imo
Happy with mine got it last week.
My old GTX 680 on the left.
after finally seeing a single 970 beat my firestrike gpu score i'm rather inclined for a 970 now and would be confident with one with fc4 using my current presets (maxed but no aa nor blur). i'd use the single card in gta5 prolly too and get another for witcher3.
sounds like a plan.
*the updated evga ssc 970s have arrived in shops btw.
The most typical "fix" was to lower the (core) clocks a little. One or two notches should do the trick usually.
970 is pretty sick I admit, kinda want one xD
Ended up going from 230 core to 140, more just isn't stable and actually lowers performance.
Did you check performance for every 10MHz or how did you find that out? Just out of curiosity, as I usually just run the maximum rate that's stable (and doesn't give me graphical errors ).
Yeah, went up in 10s. Higher is benchmark stable but it was crashing in games.
holding out for the release of evga's 970 ftw+ before i pull the trigger on a new card, anyone seen any reliable info on its release date? all ive seen is 'january 2015'
(and OH MY is a 970 going to be a hell of an upgrade from my 460 SC lol)
@mrh: Thanks, I'll give that a try then!
Those are the type of upgrades that bring the greatest thrill. Wish I could hold off that long between upgrades.
New Year. There is only one. :cheers:
Ah. Yes. I guess that works.
Just grab any GTX970. They're all going to have relatively close OC clocks.
Iam not sure about that, I think custom OCed card will overclock higher than cards at reference clocks.
And I think he wants the best 970 EVGA model.
