GeForce GTX 280 SLI (Dual and Triple SLI)
Got cash ? You could do two ... even three.
So then, you've read our reference review on the GeForce GTX 280 right. You like that huh; you bad boy? Now say, you just hit the jackpot, a new promotion ... the girlfriend left you .. dog died and you are mentally a little unstable. You might just consider ending up with two of these cards .. well, hey look no further because you've arrived at the most geeky website covering for you whether it is a viable option or not.
Today ladies and gentlemen we'll not spend 650,- USD on a graphics card .. no kind Sir, we'll put down 1300 USD on the table and see what two of these cards can achieve performance wise. Expensive ? Yeah, Stupid ? yeah, ... Guru? Yeah ... kick'ass man.
We live and breathe for this stuff. And before you ask, sure, we'll do a threesome with tree-way SLI as well.
So pretty much today we'll place two cards together in SLI, and then do everything over again with three cards (3-way SLI). What we'll do today is keep it clean and simple, first a little quick intro to SLI gaming and installation. Then nothing fancy or techy; we'll dive just straight into the performance results to see if we can get a smile on our faces bigger than Pamela Anderson's boobs (they get bigger from year to year as well, don't they?).
Hmmm SLI or boobies man. tell me, what is more teasing to see, them or .. this ...
Today a review the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX edition. The Superclocked model comes with a nice factory tweak and that all new Sleeve bearing fan based ACX cooler. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC review
We test and review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC edition. The graphics card comes witha factory overclock and the new WindForce 3X 2 Slot 450W fan sink with Triangle Cool fans, as they like to cool it. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
GeForce GTX 780 SLI and Multi monitor review
We review the GeForce GTX 780 SLI and also do a SurroundView session with three monitors. The boards used are reference from NVIDIA. Over the next few pages we'll tell you a bit about multi-GPU gaming, the challenges, the requirements and of course a nice tasty benchmark session with the latest games. We'll have a peek at temperatures and power consumption of the GeForce GTX Titan cards in 2-way SLI mode to monitor it's generated performance.
GeForce GTX 780 review
We test and review the GeForce GTX 780. The GeForce GTX 780 is NVIDIAs all new high-end graphics card based in their Flagship product, the GTX Titan. This means it is based on the GK110 GPU and has an whopping 7.1 Billion transistors. That makes it a nice chunk faster opposed to the GeForce GTX 680 GPU. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
