Total War: Shogun 2
The SLI configurations look good in Total War: Shogun 2, even though their scalability isn’t as impressive as in Sid Meier’s Civilization V. The bottom speed increases at any settings, which is good news for those who plan to build a multi-GPU setup to play this game.
It’s different from the previous test:
The average frame rate is okay in this shooter, but the bottom speed is just awful. The single-processor GeForce GTX 680 and the dual-processor GeForce GTX 690 ensure higher bottom speeds and, consequently, higher comfort for the gamer. Moreover, the GTX 690 is just as good as the 3-way SLI in average frame rate, so the choice of graphics hardware for playing this game is obvious.
Hard Reset Demo
Hard Reset is too easy for high-performance graphics hardware. It is only at 2560x1440 pixels with enabled antialiasing that SLI technology can boast 80% scalability.
Batman: Arkham City
SLI works in Batman: Arkham City well enough, the 3-way SLI being 42% ahead of the 2-way configuration. The bottom speed isn’t perfect, but the GeForce GTX 690 has problems with it, too.
The two GeForce GTX 660 Ti are faster than the single card by 80% and more, both in average and bottom frame rates. The third card adds 17-47% more to their performance.
