We review the GeForce GTX 770 in 2-way SLI, next to our default FPS benchmarks we do FCAT Frametime measurements as well. 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 we'll have a nice tasty benchmark session with the latest games. We'll have a peek at temperatures and power consumption of the GeForce GTX 770 cards in 2-way SLI mode to monitor their generated performance.
Before I continue with the introduction, due to the number of cards and sheer amount of stuff we have to talk about, as always, we have split up the GeForce GTX 770 related content in two separate articles, otherwise we'd end up with one 50+ page articles.
So in this article initially, we'll be looking at 2-way SLI from a single monitor point of view, so ideally either 1920x1200 or 2560x1440/1600 is the monitor you have to be able to compare to what SLI would do for you on your setup. You will notice great performance increases with 2-way SLI, truthfully with so much horsepower, it's a hard thing to accomplish if you do not have the right PC. With that in the back of our mind we created a second segment in this article.
For the second part of this article we'll take it up a notch and look into high-resolution gaming as we hook up three 1920x1080 monitors and create a massive resolution of 5760x1080 pixels. Now our beastly 30" Dell 2560x1600 monitor can achieve 4 Mpixels already, but at 5760x1080 that's an even greater 6.2 MPixels to render. It will be interesting to find out how the 770 cards will handle such extreme resolutions. Considering its 2 GB framebuffer and cool GPU rendering capabilities, it's looking quite alright I'd say!
Over the next few pages we'll tell you a bit about multi-GPU gaming, the challenges, the requirements and of course there'll be a nice tasty benchmark session. We'll have a peek at temperatures and power consumption of the GeForce 770 cards in 2x SLI mode to monitor their generated performance and look at multi-GPU handicaps. The last part of this article will then cover multi-monitor gaming performance.
Have a peek at the products being slammed and spanked today, and then let's start up this article.
