Pros: Tried two 980 in SLI, even the K|ngp|n edition graphics cards were not enough to push a 4K monitor. But two of the TX in SLI were more than sufficient, giving me more than 60 fps in AAA title games like Dying Light. After testing, I installed water blocks and now the GPU boosts to 1278MHz on default settings. I can also overclock them close to 1500MHz with no changes to voltage. The ASIC quality score was 64.4 and 66.6 respectively, which I do not rely on for overclocking potential. I believe I just have good cards to play with. In addition, the 12GB of VRAM is a nice buffer for some of the latest games at higher resolutions or surround.
Cons: Unlike the original Titan, this card is ideal for gaming and only gaming. If AMD had better driver support, I would be all over their products. But since NVIDIA is in their A game, I will continue to buy EVGA, etc.
Other Thoughts: I received this item in less than three business days after ordering which shipped from their CA warehouse. Newegg rocks!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: OK, so I am not poor--I dropped a little over 1G for two of these bad girls to operate in SLI. BUT, I saved close to 1G by buying the next best thing. According to my benchmarks and experience, I am getting about 10-15% less performance compared to the original Titan. HOWEVER, I still have 6GB of VRAM which is nice for surround or high resolution gaming. For this kind of savings and still get close to the same performance, it is definitely worth it. I was waiting for something like this with the GK110 GPU and 6GB of VRAM, and this is it. From what I have read, it retains the reference design. I hope so, because I just ordered water blocks.
Cons: It is a beautiful piece of hardware, but it runs HOT! The ACX cooler is effective if you have good air flow and are running just one card. If you have two in SLI, then forget about it--you will probably need to consider water cooling options. I am currently using the Bitfenix Shinobi XL with ten fans and I still have to game with the side panel removed. The ACX cooler is good but remember that it is blowing all that hot air into the inside of your case.
Other Thoughts: In the latest games like Watch_Dogs, I am getting about 40-50 fps at 2560 x 1440 with all settings maxed. Remember that more and more games are using more VRAM, so this graphics card with 6GB of VRAM is a great option.READ FULL REVIEW
