Why the 660 Ti SLI is better then the GTX Titan in Crysis 3.

Crysis 3 @ 1080p DX11 Very High 8xAA/16xAF Motion Blur Off
GTX 660 Ti SLI: 80.9 FPS
GTX Titan: 75.5
BUT then again, we're comparing a single GPU to 2 single GPU cards, although they do not scale 100 percent. (EXAMPLE: Ares II runs it at 53.2 and the R7970 runs it at 49.7, although I do not think AMD cards are correctly optimized yet.) So is the 660Ti SLI better in all games? No. Titan wins in Far Cry 3, Crysis 1, Skyrim at 1080p with K ENB and several texture mods, and Battlefield 3 by 5 fps, although the Ares II beats out both of them by about 40 FPS. 660Ti SLI runs it at 116, Titan at 121, and Ares II at 161 and has almost PERFECT SCALING from a 7970. (Ultra Presets On everything) I'll update with any more benchmarks I get.

New Benchmark: Witcher 2 At Ultra Preset with Ubersampling, GTX 660 Ti SLI beats out the GTX Titan by 1 FPS.

Better may not be the correct word. Higher FPS, sure, but even SLI does not deliver frames as consistently as a single card, and has higher latency.

That is true, plus it adds noise, cancels out some airflow, and requires more power consumption, I was stuck trying to think of a good general word for it, so I just thought of better.

Indeed, plus latency has been tested to be very low so dont buy into this old SLI "issues" from the past.
I am running tri SLI now as well. I got my other two cards used for $130 and $150. Talk about getting a TON of performance for little money.
So yeah, you must consider the used market too.
