We've really tried to get as much mileage out of the EVGA GTX TITAN SuperClocked video cards we received the other week. Since we got hold of them, we looked at the EVGA GTX TITAN 6GB SuperClocked in a standalone review, along with a look at the overclocking performance. Because we got a pair, we also had the opportunity to look at SLI performance.
Today we get a chance to finally put the last piece of the puzzle together and find out just how SLI overclocking goes. This is something we're really excited about because when we looked at the overclocking performance of just a single card, we saw some fantastic performance gains. Not only that, when we added a second card into the mix in SLI mode, we also saw some awesome gains in performance across the board.
Today we're hoping with the combination of both SLI and overclocking we're going to be able to see some truly awesome performance. Considering the price tag that is associated with the setup, we expect nothing less. What's going to make this even more interesting is now that we've seen the AMD Radeon HD 7990 6GB officially launch, we've got a whole bunch of setups included in our graphs today. Since the launch of the new AMD dual-GPU model, we've had the opportunity to look at it in a number of ways.
We started off by checking out the performance in its reference form, and then we went into the overclocking side of things - if you have had a chance to look at that article, you'll know that it didn't go very well. While we had hoped to get a second HD 7990 6GB to find out what CrossFireX performance was like, it hasn't been possible so far. Instead, though, we paired the HD 7990 6GB with a HD 7970 GHz Edition to find out what CrossFireX performance with three GPUs was like. If you've seen that article, you would know we were impressed with what that $1,400 setup was able to offer.
With so many high-end setups looked at lately, it will be interesting to see how the overclocked SLI setup we're looking at today goes. As always, because we've already looked at the card in detail, we won't be covering it again. Instead if you want to take a closer look, we recommend you check out the standalone review we linked to above. From here we'll take a quick look at our testbed, talk about the setups that you'll see in our graphs today and quickly cover the overclocking, before we get into the performance numbers.
