GeForce GTX Titan 3-way SLI and SurroundView gaming... roaaaar!
We review the GeForce GTX Titan in 3-way SLI. The boards used are reference from NVIDIA. Next to tweaking the product, we'll also hook it up-to three monitors and check out Surround view gaming performance. 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 hottest games. We'll have a peek at temperatures and power consumption of the GeForce GTX Titan cards in single, 2-way and 3-way SLI mode to monitor it's generated performance.
Before I continue with the introduction, due to the number of cards and sheer amount of stuff we have to talk about, we have split up the GeForce GTX Titan related content in three separate article, otherwise we'd end up with one 75 pages article.
Here's what we have to offer starting today, and please do start off with the reference review to understand GeForce GTX Titan better:
So in this article initially, we'll be looking at 2/3-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 2 and 3-way SLI would do for you on your setup.
You will notice great performance increases with 2-way SLI, but on a single monitor will 3-way SLI scale just as well? -- truthfully with so much horsepower, it's a hard thing to accomplish. 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 even 6.2 MPixels to render. It will be interesting to find out how the Titan cards will handle such extreme resolutions. Considering its huge 6Gb framebuffer, 288 Gbps memory bandwidth and hefty 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 GTX Titan cards in 3x SLI mode to monitor its 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.
