    Yup, taken with a grain of salt :) Not been good with my wording today, my brain is feeling melty lol, here's to hoping this card at least makes it to commercial availability.

    We all have to wait and see what the 6950/6970/6990 and GTX595 will be before making huge assumptions.

    nVidia fanboy much? :shadedshu

    EDIT - Your username pretty much explains everything lol.

    2 of those in SLI ,would need your own nuclear power reactor in your shed to run them :)

    Only two 8-pin power connections? That's pretty surprising. Was waiting to see two 8-pin and a 6-pin. But the power circuitry looks pretty robust, indicating huge power consumption and heat output. TDP is probably going to end up being around 400W and the stock cooler will be either a 3-slot monster or a waterblock. So it's most likely two GF110s with some shader cores locked and downclocked. Personally I would of liked to see a dual GF104/GF114 card, like two fully enabled GF104.

    Need 4 of them in SLI on a SR2 mobo :-D

    You guys are keep talking about single GPU, dual-GPU.....This is nothing. The ONLY important thing, is that AMD has now the most powerful card on the market. It can have 1000 GPUs, this is irrelevant. The RELEVANT thing is there is no single card that can match AMD video card.
    You are to young and innocent to remember that back on the time, the best 3D card was 3dfx VooDoo with 2 GPUs, than Voodoo 2 with 3 GPUs, than the prototype Voodoo 5 with 4 GPUs, etc. Everybody was talking about the card, not about how many GPUs had.
    The same thing with this card. If they will sale this, probably nvidia will became the producer with the fastest graphics card in the market. That is all that matters. ;)

    Those 3dfx cards were the bomb, add-ons with daughter boards, and yeah the prototypes as you mentioned. If only they were still around... I guess stats wise, most powerful overall card - 5970, most powerful dual-gpu card - 5970, most powerful single-gpu card - 580, and yeah here's to hoping both companies pull out in front from time to time, healthy competition is always good and keeps prices on both sides lower.

    I want one! Hell two!!

    Too bad it's only 2 way SLI capable. Only one sli connector on the top of the card.

    well they only needs one...there's 2 gpus per card, 4gpus in SLI. they haven't moved past 4 gpus for consumers.

    Awww :-( lol, also would removing the power limiting chips and using them with PCI-E 3.0 be of any benefit?

    The power limiter only affects certain programs (OCCT and Furmark it looks like), removing it won't give you some type of hidden performance in real world situations.

    PCI-E bandwidth doesn't have anything to do with the limiter, and keep in mind, PCI-E 3.0 isn't out and we still have barely saturated 1.0/1.1 anyways.

    Reaching your left retina.
    I was not proving nor disproving anything much less defending any POV from this thread, I just posted some of W1zzard's charts, in order to show a wider range of cards. I said nothing, nor it was my intetion to say anything, just present a wider ammount of data than the one you posted, because it was limited to mid-range compared to high-end, when it's obvious to everyone that mid-range will always scale better...

    But just look how true the "SLI scales better" argument is, generally, that without any comment, by only posting some charts, some empirical data collected by W1zz, so many people in this thread suddenly thought I was implying SLI is better. Sorry guys that's only your own subconscious betraying yourselves and indirectly making you agree with something you would never admit...

    First of all, read above. :roll:

    Second, of course only max resolution matters on this particular SLI/Crossfire debate (GF110 vs Cayman). I refuse to judge $800-1000 graphics setups based on low resolutions, that's stupid. I can go even farther, anyone who does $500-1000 SLI/Crossfire in order to play on anything below 1920x1200 8xAA or 2560x1600 4xAA is just stupid, let alone at the lowest 3 out of 5 of the resolutions that W1zz uses in his reviews. If you want to game at a max res of 1680x1050, buy a single GTX460 or HD6850 and that's it.

    Shoulda looked that one up myself, "Q15: Does PCIe 3.0 enable greater power delivery to cards?
    A15: The PCIe Card Electromechanical (CEM) 3.0 specification consolidates all previous form factor power delivery specifications, including the 150W and the 300W specifications.", I'm wondering if this GTX 595 won't be then what cards will be using the new specification.

    Well, not sure who that was for. When it comes to technology and comments i have no betrayals. And have no problem admitting this or that. My subconscious knows it's place and it's at home with a pint and a copy of New Scientist.

    As for the position of a dual GF110 for total performance leadership, it becomes very relevant for high end scaling as it will be two near top gpu's from both camps slugging it out. Fudzilla suggests it will be out soon, others say it will wait for the 6990.
    I think these cards will be crippled by their own siblings. Does putting two gpu's onto one core (and surely downclocking or underpowering them) not give less performance than two sli or crossfired cards?
    i.e lets say the green dualie is two GF104's. (i can't believe it will be two fully operational 580's.) Therefore to 580's in sli would be better. So cost will have to be carefully considered.
    Likewise for AMD. Two fully operational 6970's seems too much (though we dont know how they are yet!).

    Like i've said before in this thread somewhere - not for me. I'd rather have the one powerful gpu from now on - and i'm leaning green right now. Maybe Dec 13th will change my mind?

    It's just like the GTX295 was 2x GTX275s with the clocks turned down, but it still out did the GTX285 by a good amount and holds it on still today in DX9/10 apps.
    I have 2 GTX260's that for the most part are on par with the 295 witch is why I have yet to upgrade.
    The GTX 595 should be good a great card, I will more then likely pick on up due to it having NV surround on one card, I am running 2d surround on my 260s now and for the most part is great, I do run out of Vram on some games.

    I'm dead curious if this card will be more expensive than the GTX 8800 ULTRA back on the days... ;)

    this is my answer to that.

    the GTX580 is what, a few % behind a 5970? I'd take that gap anday for the above reasons.
     
  24. TAViX Guest

    I think this that was valuable a few years ago, nowadays 90% (10% percent are crappy console ports anyways, that don't even use Quad Core Procs) of the good games released can take Crossfire/SLI. I agree that every month there are more and more optimizations for dual/tri cards but not more than 5-15%.

    Ever play BC2 or Metro? Try running one of those without a quad.
