Dual Titan Z rig? Prolly the most insane statement.

I just got an idea. As we, gamers know, Nvidia just announced the GTX Titan Z. Two Titan Blacks running together, in the most overkill and insane manner, but what if we put two Titan Zs in SLI. Two of them, 4 Titan Zs. Of course, probably no one would spend $6k dollars only on graphics cards. But, just to clear a doubt, is this possible? 24 GB of Vram, if this is. :| That teaser of the Titan Z nearly made me cry. I have a sucky GT 520. :( Waiting for an upgrade. Anyways, if it IS possible, will future tech be avaiable to do 4 Titan Zs, or 8 graphics cards? Or by some kind of magic, this is already possible? Cheers, and pwease reply!

VRAM Doesn't add when you SLI cards.

two card would only have 12gb of VRam, the RAM doesn't double when in SLI. Also since one titan z is already in SLI, you can only SLI 2 Titan Z's. It's also cheaper to just go 4 way SLI GTX Titan blacks for pretty much the same performance.

uhm, not very clear but you can only 2 of these in SLI, not 4

It would still only be 6GB of VRAM from my understanding. Each GPU has 6GB of its own, and in SLI it wouldn't stack.

 

Yes, 2 Titan Z's would be possible, but 4 way SLI of Titan Blacks would be more powerful most likely, as the Dual GPU solution usually mean a bit of under clocking on the GPU cores.

 

As for the future, no idea. Currently only 4 GPUs in SLI/CF, doesn't matter about the physical number of cards.

And buy a custom loop + sexy waterblocks from the money, you could maybe even have Singularitycomputers make you a rig for that price.

i dont think his builds are that expensive, i mean the guy is amazing and puts alot of thought and understands what the customer wants. (with not expensive i mean average build of 5K with highend everything)

The RAM is on the same PCB,they can access it.In SLI the buffer has to be mirrored to the other cards.

Well, 2 Titan Zs are 6k. 4 Titan Blacks are 4k. 1k for watercooling parts (probably more - dual loop, rads, 5 waterblocks min.). That would "only" leave 1k for him.

Imagine putting a Titan Z in something like a Hadron. Well that is is you can find a 800W+ server style PSU. Fricking awesome.

yeah, it was kind of stupid. vram doesnt stack up. but yes. for my next build, i might go with 4 titan blacks, oc-ed, with water blocks. how much will that be in total vram, tho?

i think that 1K for a custom front panel, sleeving and acrylic WC is alot (i know he does more but thats what it prety much comes to)

somewhere around 16 gb, yeah? whoa. 

 

Did you even read the thread? It doesn't work like that.

Custom cabling 4 GPUs, 24pin, 8pin (maybe even 2 for a build like that), all the fans etc. will probably take 10-15 hours alone (maybe less considering he has experience and does it regularly). Those smoked acrylic sheets aren't that cheap either. Planning everything, doing some things over - he has to calculate mistakes in etc. -, testing the parts, material costs (probably 100+ for sleeving/cables alone), tool costs (dremel wheels, jigsaw blades etc.).

 

It's a business and he is working on commission so he has to make good money/hour. Not sure how much he makes on youtube though, but that comes with editing and voice-over'ing everything making it not completely "free money".

didnt he have someone working for him to sleeve the cables? youre probably right. but there is only one build thats that insane (the quad 680 one i think) he ever made, probably payed 2 K for all that work
