In BF3 the GTX Titan took no time in showing its impressive advantage of the single GPU competition. At 1,920 x 1,080 with 4x AA its minimum frame rate of 103fps was 47 per cent higher than that of the GTX 680 2GB in the same test. However, despite their price parity, the GTX 690 4GB offers a 23fps advantage.


Skyrim is a game that traditionally scales poorly with multi-GPU, and so it proved with the Titan’s performance at 1,920 x 1,080 with 8x AA when its minimum frame rate of 110fps bettering that of the GTX 690 4GB. At 2,560 x 1,600 with 8x AA the 690 4GB sneaks back in front with a minimum frame rate of 92fps to Titan’s 82fps, although this still sees the GTX Titan Surpass the pair of HD 7970 3GB GHz Editions. In multi-GPU setups Titan looks to be capped at an average of 180fps, with two cards running fractionally quicker than three.

 


In the Witcher 2 the Titan again tops the single-GPU rankings, but with a minimum frame rate of 85fps at 1,920 x 1,080 with 4x AA cannot better the GTX 690 4GB’s 96fps in the same test. At 2,560 x 1,600 with 4 xAA Titan is significantly out-performed by the dual-GPU 690, which produces a minimum frame rate of 74fps to the Titan’s 55fps. This still represents a 41 per cent improvement over the GTX 680 2GB however, and is only 6fps behind the minimum frame rate of a pair of HD 7970 GHz Editions.

 

Power consuption is surprisingly frugal and the card is up to 50% faster than any other single GPU card around. If you have £900 to spend on graphics, I'd get a single Titan over SLI, just because single GPU has better driver support than SLI or x-fire. Value is still dreadful, since you're probably paying for £400 worth of epeen.

KM+M

 

But controllers will have better ergonomics on many games. But won't enable the precision for FPS

Keyboard and mouse. If the game doesn't like keyboard and mouse or it's badly implemented, I won't play it.

Well, SWTOR just got me stuck at a bug. Time for dishonoured. The mouse feels a little awkward compared to other games I've played, but the stealth element is pretty cool.

Did anyone hear about the chromebook Pixel?

http://chrome.blogspot.com/2013/02/the-chromebook-pixel-for-whats-next.html

IMO $1300 is a lot to ask for a computer with as much storage as a $20 flash drive and the CPU from a $500 notebook....

It makes the 13" retina MBP look like it's good value. tongue.gif

The screen is interesting. Finally something that isn't Apple or rare that exceeds 1080p. I do hope more panels like this show up.

Yup. Even though I dislike mac, I'd say I'd rather have a MBP than this thing...

Hopefully it will lead to some other PC vendors working on high rez displays, to create some more competition. I believe that's Google's idea behind their 1GBPS fiber service too, to increase competition among PC vendors.

I don't know too much about it, but basically, Chrome OS is a glorified web browser that steals information for targeted ads??

 

No thanks. tongue.gif

post #1080 of 6433

Bored, so here's some ME3 screens. I still think it looks nice. cool.gif

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also got like 30 seconds of video at this super high resolution that looks really nice, but it's like 1GB, so it'll take some time to upload. tongue.gif

 

EDIT: Huh, after it got the ol' Youtube compression treatment it became a little hard to see.

 

EDIT 2: Another short one.
