NVIDIA GeForce 9800GTX Triple SLI

[English]NVIDIA’s triple SLI reviewed at t-break[/English]

[French]La solution triple SLI de NVIDIA testé chez t-break.[/French]

Full Review @ t-break

Scaling from one GPU to two doesn’t necessarily result in doubling the performance as we’ve seen in countless SLI and Crossfire articles. But what happens when you add a third GPU to the mix? That is what we’re going to find out today by putting three 9800GTX SLI cards together.

So at the moment, Triple SLI might only be worth for people with displays capable of extremely high resolutions- we’re talking 30″ LCDs here. For everyone else including a high-end gamer that plays at 1920×1200 with 4X AA, your standard dual card SLI is more than capable and the scaling of Triple SLI is not required.

NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2 @ digit-life

NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GX2 @ digit-life

“All of you knew from the very beginning that this NVIDIA product was the most powerful graphics card on GPUs from this manufacturer. Our tests have just proved it.

Besides, there is apparently a problem with drivers in the highest resolution (2560×1600), where the new card suddenly slowed down in some cases, even though it’s designed for high resolutions. It happens only in several tests, not in all of them, but it still spoils the impression a little.

In other respects, it’s certainly a new leader in gaming 3D Graphics. In performance. What concerns the performance-price ratio, it’s not that clear. Perhaps, the 3870 X2 will be more expedient, as its prices have gone down. It’s up to you to decide.

On the whole, this is quite a complex graphics card. It weighs over a kilogram and has large dimensions. So you should carefully consider all pros and cons before you buy this card. ”
