2x GTX 650 Ti Boost vs Single GTX 670 ?
Hey guys , I'v seen some bench marking vids Youtube and saw that the GTX 650 Ti Boost in SLI were more dominant compared to the GTX 670 . Its also cheaper than the GTX 670 . I know running CrossfireX/SLI is not really good compared to a single card , but these days with these new cards , I don't think there's gonna be a problem . Plus , 2 cards in one machine looks totally awesome . I would love to hear your opinions . (:
TechPowerUp seemed to think that GTX 650 Ti Boosts in SLI would be a great option:
"After running the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SLI through our test suite, I have to admit that I'm impressed. The duo delivered performance easily matching and often exceeding much more expensive single-card options such as the GeForce GTX 680 and Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, and they don't cost as much. SLI multi-GPU scaling works well with all of our titles except for F1 2012. Scaling by going from one to two GTX 650 Ti Boost cards is around 70%, even with F1 2012 taken into account. Unlike AMD, NVIDIA does a good job of maintaining its SLI profiles, so you should be able to play new games without a long wait for multi-GPU support. However, the risk that a game will not be supported still exists, and you might, at worst, end up with single-card performance. This is in my opinion, given the massive performance-per-dollar advantage, an acceptable tradeoff. I would definitely recommend a GTX 650 Ti Boost SLI setup to a friend looking to spend as little money as possible on a high-end gaming rig."
