Dual Titan Z Vs GTX 980

The 980's would most likely beat them in performance because they are made for performance. The titan z is Made more for doing difficult rendering and editing.

Recommended Posts

Four 980s ($2000~) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> two Titan Zs ($4000~)

Four-way/Quad SLI is still beyond stupid for gaming.

So, 4 Titan Black GPUs? Aside from the awful scaling in games, the cost is awful. Titan Z obviously will perform better.

His three 980s with custom bios's and ridiculous overclocks. 

Although, it sounds about right.

Titan and Titan Z aren't using the same GPUs. Titan Z's use Titan Blacks which utilize a fully enabled GK110 GPU. Titan is essentially a 780 with 64 bit Compute enabled.

You said "4 Titans." The proper name is Titan Black.

Looking at the 980 review, the Titan Z has a good lead over the 980.

A single 980 will not beat a Titan Z, SLI 980s will.

How about Dual Titan Z X 2 * 4 SLI DUALITY CLASSIFIED WOMBO COMBO vs 980 16-Way Crossfire into SLI? Which one would perform better?

 

This category is basically going this way.

unless you plan to custom cool the titan z go for the 980s or face thermal throttling percentages so high it makes the depth of the hole ubisoft have dug themselves into irrelevant
