Will my 3570K bottleneck my Quad Sli GTX Titan?

I want to know whether or not if it'll bottleneck my Quad GTX Titan, and if so how noticeably?

  1. Yes. And very noticeably. Why would you Quad-SLI GTX Titan or Quad-SLI any card?
  2. It will bottleneck. You will need an i7-3930K @ 4.0 GHz or faster.
  3. I am honestly not sure there's a CPU out right now that wouldn't bottleneck 4 GTX Titans...
  4. If you have the money for 4x Titans why are you considering anything less than intel's i7 3970X CPU? Frankly I'd like to know how you manage to get 4 Titans onto any motherboard that isn't based on intel's socket 2011 with the extra PCIe lanes needed to feed them.

    Some of the really high end Asus boards for socket 1155 and socket AM3+ have 4 PCIe lanes. (sabertooth/crosshair/maximus)

    True, but without the extra PCIe lanes coming out of the i7 via the 2011 socket the quad SLI is going to be starved of bandwidth.

    Any more than 2/3 titans will see little to no benefit

    Agreed...I would never advise doing it...but you theoretically could fit 4 cards onto 1 board.

    I would think 2 titans would be plenty...or if you want "4 GPUs"...then just SLI/CFX 2 GTX 690s or HD 7990s.
  9. no

    O.O
  11. Two words............ B.S.
  12. This is a silly question.
  13. My i7 4960x bottlenecked my quad-crossfire HD 5450s

    Am I the only one that thinks this is a kid trolling on pipe dreams?
