Available in retail already, or simply having shown samples?.....I don't see any available yet from the store where i usually buy my stuff, Or even available yet directly from koolance or EK or swiftech own sites...


I did notice that EK has shown the first samples and their performance characteristics( impressive btw), on their site but it's not yet available for actual sale yet...

There's not much to go on in terms of performance numbers, but the one benchmark that VR-zone ran on both the 3 card configuration and the 4 card configuration was 3D mark vantage, there the 3 card one scored a little over 21 000 points and the 4 card version at 23 000 points, but this is at the performance setting, and heavily CPU limited with that much GPU firepower under the hood.


On the extreme settings, it was 8900 points for the 3 card configuration, and 10 300 for the 4 card setup, so the extra card isn't adding much overall, but this is just vantage and nothing else, so hardly a complete picture..

If you want to fantasize, at least make it something good, like interations with Sasha Bonilova perhaps.

Word of mouth and having people seeing your system and even playing with it carries more weight than any hardware review on the net...Why do you think that Nvidia organizes those live shows with real prizes and people get to experience the latest tech in person?...


You seem fixated that it's just about me and that no one else will get to see the setup and play with it...

Did I say word of mouth advertising is bad? No.

What I said is you're deluded if you think your personal purchases influence the release schedules of a billion dollar corp..

I'm pretty comfortable with that assessment of the situation, and think if you truly believe NVIDIA cares at all about your personal rig building needs you're past the point we have anything to say to one another.

Apparently you do, given all the dozens of hours you've spent responding to me.

Think about that a moment Napolean Dynamite.

But it's too fun watching you squirm. This thread is a perfect example of it.
