Awesome rig, Jacob !

Did you try that jAkUp?
Shading power:

4 x 1242 MHz = 4968 MHz
3 x 1476 MHz = 4428 MHz

12% win for the quad SLI.


Bandwidth:

4 x 448 bit x 1000 MHz x 2 = 448000 MB/s
3 x 512 bit x 1242 MHz x 2 = 476928 MB/s

6% win for the tri SLI.


Maybe the Tri SLI system could scale better with high resolutions, due to the larger frame buffer.

I'm surprised that the performance is so close. You'd think that having another whole GPU in there would have made a pretty large difference, especially in the Cryostasis demo.

I totally agree with you Capt, also nice rig Jakup.

One thing that you need to remember is that these cards by default are lower clocked than the GTX 280.

Not by much though. Considering the ROP/Bandwith deficit. The performance difference between 1 GTX 295 and 2 GTX 280's is incredibly small. Can I brag your thread too? :O I wanna be as cool as Jakup!

Without multi GPU enabled you mean? Its only slightly slower than a 280.

I just don't think its worth the rumored $500 price, if it launches at $400 then it would be a nice look at since its going up against the 4870 X2 which can be found for the low $400 and even below if you look hard.

Decent performance, but how do the minimum frame rates compare?

Isn't that one of the few things that matter most?
