Last week, we were the only ones in the world to publish a review of Nvidia's new GeForce GTX Titan Black Edition.Thanks to the support from the Belgian online shop Tones.be, we were able to not only benchmark a single Titan Black, but also provide them for 2-way, 3-way, and 4-way SLI setups.
The comments showed us the valid criticism that we merely tested in Full HD and 3x Full HD (5760x1080) resolutions, while cards such as these are begging for a 4K display. Unfortunately we temporarily did not have a 4K display at hand earlier this week, but our lab has now received a brand new Samsung LU28D590DS (of which we'll soon publish a review). This also means that we'll be able to test the Titan Black setups on a 4K display, that is, 3840x2160 pixels (4x Full HD).
To perform these tests, we will once again use our standard testing rig for video cards, which consists of an Intel Core i7 3960X (Sandy Bridge-E) processor, an ASUS P7X79 Pro motherboard, 16 GB of Corsair DDR3-1600 memory, a Samsung Spinpoint F1 hard drive, and a Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold 1200 watt power supply. We substituted the motherboard for an ASUS Rampage IV Formula to perform the 3-way and 4-way SLI tests. All benchmarks were carried out using Windows 7 x64.
We ran the same games as we did in our review from earlier this week. The 4K-benchmarks were run with both Medium and Ultra settings.
Let's get on with the results!
We used the brand new Samsung LU28D590DS for the 4K-benchmarks.
More info on this display will be available on Hardware.Info soon!
