Exclamation EVGA GTX 295 Quad SLI!

Here it is

As expected, these cards are extremely fast, and have no problem beating my previous triple GTX 280 setup. Check out the performance! Also, surprising to me, in most games the GTX 295 has a higher minimum FPS!





Cryostasis
1920x1200 - 16xAF - High Setting
3xGTX 280's= 56.9FPS
2xGTX 295's= 59.4FPS

World in Conflict
1920x1200 - 4xAA/16xAF - Max Settings
3xGTX 280's= 88FPS (35FPS minimum)
2xGTX 295's= 86FPS (42FPS minimum)

3DMark Vantage
Performance Setting
3xGTX 280's= 31,963
2xGTX 295's= 35,329

Crysis Warhead
1920x1200 - 4xAA - Enthusiast Settings
3xGTX 280's= 38.86FPS
2xGTX 295's= 44.22FPS

FarCry 2

1920x1200 - 4xAA - Ultra Settings
3xGTX 280's= 108.28FPS
2xGTX 295's= 119.31FPS

I always look forward to these threads. Very nice, jaKup.

For the fPS count - is it maximum or minimum*? That might be a dumb question...

Hmmm, thats very nice indeed.

I thought they would be hotter. But these 55nm chips are not so powerhungry I guess.

Nice pictures too.

You, my friend, as usual, really really REALLY suck!

You always have one of the coolest setups on the planet!

Nice cards!

I still don't understand why Nvidia didn't go with 6 SLI setup. Don't think that there would be any temp issue. Also as far as power requirements nothing extra compared to Tri GTX280 setup.

Can you comment on microstuttering w/ that quad-SLI setup? I'm also a prospective buyer of 2 295s.

Did you try that jAkUp?
i think you are right, 3x 285 would probably be faster, quad-sli is only about 3-9FPS faster.

Seriously a nice setup like usual
Also eager to know if the microstuttering issue is solved.
