Battlefield 3 isn’t a serious problem for top-end graphics cards but the SLI technology is highly efficient. The two Titans are 82-92% faster than the single card at 2560x1400. The Zotac GeForce GTX Titan AMP! Edition is 2-5% ahead of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX Titan.
Sniper Elite V2 Benchmark
Here’s what Sniper Elite V2 has to tell us:
The factory overclocking makes the Zotac faster than the reference card by 3 to 5%. As for SLI technology, the two Titans are 65% ahead of the single card at the lower visual quality settings and 86% ahead at the highest settings.
Our Titan SLI tandem seems to be limited by the speed of the platform in Sleeping Dogs. It doesn’t differ much from the single card at 1920x1080 pixels with low level of antialiasing. But when we use extreme antialiasing, the 2-way Titan SLI tandem is 81% ahead of the single card at that resolution and as much as 93% ahead at 2560x1440! The Zotac version is only 1.5 to 3% faster than the reference Titan from Nvidia.
This game turned out to be the most CPU-dependent one on our list. It is only with enabled antialiasing that it shows any benefits from adding a second $1000 graphics card into our configuration.
Well, that’s normal for top-end configurations. The higher the graphics load, the bigger the effect from doubling the number of graphics cards. Graphics engine and driver optimizations are also important, though.
