Futuremark 3DMark Fire Strike

Fire Strike has two benchmark modes: Normal mode runs in 1920x1080, while Extreme mode targets 2560x1440. GPU target frame buffer utilization for normal mode is 1GB and the benchmark uses tessellation, ambient occlusion, volume illumination, and a medium-quality depth of field filter. The more taxing Extreme mode targets 1.5GB of frame buffer memory and increases detail levels across the board. Extreme mode is explicitly designed for CrossFire / SLI systems. GT 1 focuses on geometry and illumination, with over 100 shadow casting spot lights, 140 non-shadow casting point lights, and 3.9 million vertices calculated for tessellation per frame. Only 80 million pixels are processed per frame. GT2 emphasizes particles and GPU simulations. Tessellation volume is reduced to 2.6 million vertices, but the number of pixels processed per frame rises to 170 million.

Futuremark's latest edition of 3DMark shows the new GeForce GTX Titan dominating the single-GPU powered Radeon HD 7970 GHz and GeForce GTX 680. The dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 690 pulls ahead of Titan, however, mostly due to a large advantage in performance in 3DMark's Game Test 1.

So let me get this right. The benefits over the 690 is tri-sli, acoustics, and size?

I can see the benefit from a small form factor point of view, if the 690 is bigger than what you're wanting in a case, but I just don't see the benefit from a performance standpoint unless you have $3000 to invest into the fad of the year.

I can see this benefiting as Dorkstar said those with small form factor cases other then that who with half a brain would even need to 3way sli a card like this other then because i can type attitude.

$1000 for a video card or a turbo for my VW? Hmm........

Saw the specs... I came

This might be like porn for a gamer or a hardcore computer enthusiast but unless you have A LOT of money to put in in building a rig, i don't see why one would go to such an overpowered graphics card.

The titan is cool don't get me wrong but if I had a grand much less 3 grand even though the specs are crazy awesome I am going to sink that into something else. I love electronics and computers but until I win the redneck retire plan I just couldn't justify it. 

 

Having said that if someone gave me 3 of these cards I would find a way to put them in SLI in a heartbeat.

The only time I would consider this is if I had to drive multiple high rez displays - as of this moment, my 590 is more than enough for my 1x Dell 3011 @2560x1600, even in Crysis 3.  I figure I can pick up another 590 or 690 for less once the 700 series and maybe Titan variants take the top crown.
