I can't wait for the multi-monitor comparison!! Eyefinity / Surround FTW!!
The BEST part of the review:
"Earlier today I finally ordered three 1080p monitors to add multi-monitor gaming performance numbers to our reviews."
I don't know. Losing in just one modern game and winning the rest is sort of "wiping the floor" IMO.
If @ all possible, several triple monitor resolutions should be used in reviews (landscape and / or portrait).
It surprised me that, as the resolution went up, so did the scaling. Since it had 2 GB (as opposed to 7970's 3GB), i was expecting it the other way around.
The S27A750D will not support nvidia 3D vision (ver.1 or 2), since it uses proprietary 3d tech from samsung and the TriDef driver supports only Radeon HD3D tech..
as for 3d vision from nvidia, its recommended u go for version-2 since it has larger 3d glasses(abt 20% more area) and features 'lightboost' which essentially reduces strain on the eyes by allowing greater brightness of screen.. currently there are only 4 models(Acer HN274HB, Asus VG278H, BenQ XL2420T & XL2420TX) that support ver-2, more will be launched..
For more info on 3d vision compatible monitors, see here or here
Great review! W1zz! and just asking if we have separate reviews for 3D performance of nvidia cards (i know here can't be comparisons to AMD Radeons since HD3D is rare or not used at all)
I agree..... its close and if anything I'd say amd can improve with BETTER driver support. Close none the less.
yay 1 game! honestly the GTX680 performs better, and Sli also scales better right now. Don't base anything off one game.
With Catalyst 11.12 driver too. We'll see with latest drivers when W1zz gets a chance.
is there a point testing 1024x768 lol
Okay, it only took 5 years but crysis is finally cpu bound.
the only gamers I know that play at 1024x768 or lower are counter-strike players. what good is this information to them? seems like a lot of work... anyways thanks for the review
I'll repeat myself, thank you for the very thorough review, I always look forward to reading your articles, you address all the minute details
I specially look forward to this, not many websites cater to ppl playing on eyefinity/surround setups, at resolutions 5760x1080 or higher, I commend you for your dedication to your readers.
You may already know this, but I humbly recommend you to download a little program called "widescreen fixer", it provides support to many games out there that don't properly render on multiple monitors like Skyrim, MW3, ME3 and many other games, and even legacy games like battlefield 2, you'll be surprised at how little many game developers care about people gaming on multiple monitors
Enjoy your triple monitor setup, you're in for a treat
newer AMD drivers or Newer Nvidia drivers that released late yesterday?
I mean using the latest drivers from both camps.
ohh yeahhh. That would be nice. Im interested to see what nvidia will be able to do with driver releases to come for the 680. There was a magical driver for the 470 that made it rise about the HD5870 at the time.
what a stupid article....so you test GTX 680 SLI and dont even compare it against a GTX 580 SLI or any other SLI by that matter??? WTF????!
if you don't like it don't read it. don't make such a useless comment.
btw thanks for the review w1zz
Obvious douche bag troll :shadedshu and no, you are not a wizard especially with an attitude like that...
Actually he has a very valid point, this should have been tested against the popular SLI solutions, like 580 & 570 and crossfire of 6970 & 7970.
Otherwise you only capture a part of your audience.
it's the wrong way to go about it.
Agree with both of you!
Im thinking W1z is waiting for the multi monitor setup and he going to rerun the 7x00 with the first official AMD driver that supports them 12.2
Also he said his second 680 was late getting there so you know he stayed up all night just to get us that.
Then i agree with you three.
It needs to be there for consistency with the all-resolution/average Relative Performance figure.
no it doesn't
