As of now, there is no such thing as 6/8/12 way SLI, even 4 way SLI setups won't provide you enough of a big boast for it's value and very little games support it, only benchmarks will take use of the extra GPU's or other complex computational application that's been programmed to handle the extra hardware.

Yes, indeed. That particular PC NCIX built was for some sort of folding application and they stated that the last two card would be wasted if it was used for gaming. I was just using it as an example to support my point.

So I guess its better to get a good 21.5" IPS panel.

I thought you were talking about the apple "retina" display. Not a true retina display.

If you look at SLI it will say Quad SLI. I am thinking that this is what you saw on the NCIX page. It is understandable that you thought it might have been 4 690s in the same computer, but that isn't true.

There is a difference between quad SLI and 4 way SLI. Quad SLI means you have 4 GPUs with two cards. 4 way SLI is making use of 4 separate SLI channels (4 actual video cards).

If you still saw something that told you there were 4 actual GTX 690s in one PC, it was utter false advertisement because it is impossible.

If you want proof just google it. wink.gif

No, it's on the NCIX PC Facebook page. Go back a week or two, there's a picture of all four cards in the system. Here, I'll save you the time.

They said on that post that 15 of these systems were made.

What........the........****???????

I have friends who work for nvidia. I know people who had an hand in building pieces of the 690 GPU and all of them say that that can NOT happen. Period. eek.gif

The ONLY way I can even conceive of something like that happening is they paid a crap ton to pay for designer drivers to get that to work and even THEN I doubt that it will work at 100 percent.

I'm not really interested, but if you are, you should shoot NCIX an email, they'll probably have much more to say than I do.

I will because I sent an email to one of my friends who works for nvidia and his response was WTF as well. NCIX has some splaining to do k701smile.gif

4 way SLI is the max. The thing is, if you look closely, you can see that those cards don't even have SLI bridges installed. That would seem to indicate that those are some hardcore folding@home machines (or some other program like that). They literally don't even make SLI bridges that support more than a 4 way configuration. AKA- there is no way to use more than 4 GPU's for gaming.

 

I suppose you could have 2x GTX 690 plus an additional 690 for PhysX, but only one GPU in the 3rd 690 would be used, and it would be an extreme waste of money.*

 

 

 

*I had a GTX 460 in my system for PhysX once. After finding out that it had 1-2% usage at any given time I decided to send it back and get another 580 instead.

Well, I took a look at the 27" iMac display, and I like it. I'm planning to get the 27" WQHD display, not from apple ofcourse.

My Windows PC (primary machine) is rather growing to be a dinosaur in terms of technology today.  I built it a few years back.  I have since considered either investing into a Mac or building a new machine.

 

My specs thus far are:

 

AMD Athlon II X3 445 Processor - 3.10 GHz

ASRock M3A770DE AM3 Motherboard

Kingston HyperX DDR3 1333 4Gb RAM

Western Digital Caviar Blue 500Gb

Galaxy GTX 460 768Mb Nvidia Graphics Card

Rosewill Green 630W Power Supply Unit

 

Really nothing fancy. For a $500 setup, it plays games rather well. However, I've rarely played games as of recent since I've grown to spend most of my time creating and studying music along with listening. Plus, I have been actively working on film and other video projects, so gaming is something I unfortunately do rarely of.

 

destroysall.
