GeForce GTX Titan 3D Vision Gaming Review From Linus Tech Tips

February 21st, 2013 · 3 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision

Today the benchmark results from the new Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan video card started hitting the web, but most reviewrs that got the card to test seem to use just one monitor – 1080p, 1440p or 1600p. We even get to see dual or tripple SLI setups with GeForce GTX Titan and only a few get to test on multi-monitor surround setups in 2D mode. But can you get the maximum from a GeForce GTX Titan on a single monitor in 2D mode, seems most of the press thinks so, but what about multi-monitor and stereo 3D gaming when using the Titan? Fortunately there is at least some benchmark results that cover stereoscopic 3D gaming, you can see the short video review with benchmarks from Linus Tech Tips embedded above. Interestingly enough a dual GeForce GTX 660 Ti video card setup in SLI ($600-$700 USD) seem to outperform the GTX Titan ($999 USD) in 1080p stereo 3D mode, other reviews show that the same 660 Ti SLi setup gives better results than the Titan in 2D mode as well. This means that for 2/3 of the price of the Nvidia GeFoce Titan you can get more FPS with a 660 Ti setup, this suddenly makes the Titan not seem so powerful, or maybe just the GeForce GTX 660 Ti is just too good especially if you couple two of these.

Before seeing the first reviews I was actually thinking about replacing my two trustworthy water-cooled GeForce GTX 580 video cards running in SLI with a single GeForce GTX Titan, but now I’m not so sure about that now. I’ll wait for more benchmarks and hopefully more in stereoscopic 3D mode using 3D Vision and 3D Vision Surround, and so should you if you are considering upgrading to a GTX Titan or something newer as graphics hardware than what you already have, but suddenly going for two GeForce GTX 660 Ti cards in SLI instead does sound like a very attractive idea…
