Something must be wrong with my Gtx 680

Me and my friend have the same cpu (i5 3570k), both at the same stock speed, and he has a gtx 660 sli (but I'm pretty sure the game we play doesn't support sli... world of warcraft.), and I have a 680. Here is his fps



Here is mine :




Exact same settings. What the heck is the problem here... I have the newest drivers. I have two monitors but I have one monitor running off integrated and my gaming monitor running off my gtx 680.

I have the newest drivers. My gtx 680 is the EVGA 2gb Super Clocked edition.

Maybe you could just tell us what the two FPS readings are.

I don't know where the FPS is but two GTX 660s in SLI should be a little weaker, equal to or maybe even just slightly more powerful than a single 680.

I would always get a single more powerful card than 2 weaker cards. By the way if WoW doesn't support SLI then the game wouldn't run so it supports it :p

His friend is getting 233fps, which is just absurd, I don't get how that is happening either, although anything above 60 is pretty much pointless

SLI does work with WoW.

Also, in many cases two 660s will beat a single 680:

Compare the SLI scores with the single card scores of the 680 to the 660s in SLI at the same resolutions and it's apparent.

Also, differences could be that he's zoomed out, you're zoomed in, he might not be running with the exact same features as you, there could have been less players around when he recorded fps as when you did (the times are different in the chat box screen shots). There are a lot of factors that go into the framerates on these MMORPGs and online multi-player games in general.

Resolutions?
Are you certain ALL settings are the same?
Remove your second monitor from the integrated gpu and run only on your 680 (no extras open, no add ons etc) and retest see if your closer to the same fps.

WoW is a CPU intensive game. The 660 can easily max out the settings and achieve 100+ fps. See what else your running that is chomping away on your proc and you'll likely find the difference.

Someone correct me if i'm wrong. But depending on the monitor 60hz 120hz etc. That would be the max FPS he is actually getting correct? So basically the difference would be pointless other then a SS showing ohhhhh look what I got?

Then he is probably running at difference settings than you. Or you just have a faulty card.

It's probably just he is using Lucid Virtu MVP. It is a motherboard feature that inflates your FPS reading. He isn't really getting that high of FPS if he is using Virtu. You also may not be using the same settings.

That and the Add-ons they are using are not the same. I can see both have recount on, One is using a bar manipulator to change the action bars while the other is using the WoW defaults.

To get an accurate reading OP you guys need to disable ALL add ons. Make sure ALL settings are the same. Make sure both (you and him) are on the exact same resolutions. Go out in the map somewhere at the same time and read the FPS at the same time. I bet they would be a lot closer doing this. While both are fully zoomed out facing the same direction.

Are you kidding ? Nothing is "wrong". That's excatly what one should expewct .... Two cards 2 steps down from the top are substantially faster than a single top end GPU. Surprised anyone would expect anything else these days.

Two 560 Ti's in SLI were 40% faster than a 580 for 80% of the price

Even Two 650 Ti's are 7% faster than a 680, so I'd expect two 660s will beat the pants off a 680. And that's what we see at the link below:

Here's what we see here:

http://uk.hardware.info/reviews/3129/10/nvidia-geforce-...
AvP - 84 fps for the twin 660's 59 for the 680
BAC - 90 fps for the twin 660's 87 for the 680
BF3 - 87 fps for the twin 660's 67 for the 680
Crysis2 - 92 fps for the twin 660's 76 for the 680
Dirt3 - 134 fps for the twin 660's 120 for the 680
Hard Reset - 102 fps for the twin 660's 96 for the 680
Metro2033 - 42 fps for the twin 660's 31 for the 680
Skyrim - 143 fps for the twin 660's 120 for the 680
Shogun2 - 76 fps for the twin 660's 59 for the 680
Unreal3 - 109 fps for the twin 660's 80 for the 680

While I agree to some degree, he is getting 103 FPS compared to his friends 233. That said, there are lots of factors that can contribute to different FPS readings.
