Nvidia Titan X (Pascal) SLI review: Ultra HD and beyond

No monitor fast enough for these graphics cards!

Introduction

A while ago on our Dutch site, we published a review of the new Titan X, the fastest (yet most expensive) gaming-graphics card at the moment. Those of you that follow us on Instagram or Facebook probably have noticed that a second card has arrived in our test lab, which of course can only mean one thing: SLI!

Furthermore DisplayPort 1.3-monitors are expected soon, this allows 4K to be displayed with a higher refreshrate than 60 Hz. At Computex, ASUS showed us a 4K 144Hz-monitor, while Dell is developing an OLED-panel with 4K-resolution and 120 HZ. With these monitors you can fully utilize the extra power that a second Titan X offers.

At the time of writing the Titan X (Pascal) is only available through Nvidia themselves, where the card costs 1105 pounds / 1310 euros. Because you will also need a high-bandwidth SLI-bridge, sold separately, an SLI-setup will cost you about 2275 pounds / 2700 euros – alternatively you could build your own game-pc including peripherals for this price! Titan X SLI is something for the lucky few, but obviously this does not prevent us from testing how much raw power two of these cards have.

We would like to thank Shroudster for sending us a second Titan X, allowing us to run these cards in SLI. He is active with a Discord-channel for The Division and if you want to play a game with him, follow this link.
