Should I not be able to have a better performance? Is it time to upgrade?
Hello everyone, I would like to ask this community for some thoughts on my computer's performance, as in my system description, I am using 2 x Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti in Sli with the HB bridge from Nvidia with an 60 Hz 4k monitor with free sync. I am not using any form of V-Sync, neither locking frames in games nor am I using any power saving setting in my system. And even though I am trying to unleash my system's power to the full potential and I don´t feel like having bottlenecks by my CPU as it rarely goes above 50 % usage in games, and the both GPU's rarely get below 97's % usage, mainly staying at 98 - 99 % Usage. I am not concern with Temps as well as my CPU stays in the 30 ºC iddle and 45-55's ºC's when at load, the GPU's stick to the 60 - 70's ºC rarely going above 80 ºC. My GPU's boost mainly to the 1860's MHz sometimes into 1900's MHz. Last but not least, I use all the Maximum preset possible in all games I will list below... Textures, Shadows, AA, MSAA, FXAA, TXAA, Motion Blur, etc and whatever is in game I max it out. All that said my results are in FPS: AC III 70 - 100's AC Black Flag 50's - 70's AC Unity 45's - 60's AC Syndicate 37's - 60 The Witcher 3 50 - 60's Watch_Dogs 45 - 57's Watch_Dogs 2 30 - 50's Hitman DX12 120's - 140's Rise of the Tomb Raider DX12 45 - 60's Tomb Raider 60's - 80's Total War Shogun 2 65 - 85's Borderlands 2 80 - 100's GTA V 40's - 60's Crysis 3 50's - 60's Star wars Battlefront 55's - 75's Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor 60's - 80's Metal Gear Solid V (60? locked by game) Dark Souls III (60? locked by game) Resident Evil 7 70's - 80's So does anyone have any idea if I am getting something wrong here, or am I expecting more than it is possible at the present (2017) ? How much of an upgraded result would I be realistically aiming at with an upgrade for the X299 or competition? What does everyone here thinks of an upgrade like that for the sake of gaming? My idea is to buy an 4K 144 Hz HDR monitor as soon as it hits the market? Will the upgrade make more sense after? Thank you all for your feedback
Hello everyone,

I would like to ask this community for some thoughts on my computer's performance, as in my system description, I am using 2 x Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti in Sli with the HB bridge from Nvidia with an 60 Hz 4k monitor with free sync. I am not using any form of V-Sync, neither locking frames in games nor am I using any power saving setting in my system.

I am not concern with Temps as well as my CPU stays in the 30 ºC iddle and 45-55's ºC's when at load, the GPU's stick to the 60 - 70's ºC rarely going above 80 ºC.

Last but not least, I use all the Maximum preset possible in all games I will list below... Textures, Shadows, AA, MSAA, FXAA, TXAA, Motion Blur, etc and whatever is in game I max it out.

All that said my results are in FPS:

AC III 70 - 100's
AC Black Flag 50's - 70's
AC Unity 45's - 60's
AC Syndicate 37's - 60

Tomb Raider 60's - 80's
Total War Shogun 2 65 - 85's

Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor 60's - 80's
Metal Gear Solid V (60? locked by game)
Dark Souls III (60? locked by game)
Resident Evil 7 70's - 80's

So does anyone have any idea if I am getting something wrong here, or am I expecting more than it is possible at the present (2017) ?

What did you expect at that resolution? SLI scaling is not perfect, you know. It depends on the game and SLI profile. If SLI support sucks don't expect bind blowing results. Also there are games that have locked fps in engine. Your FPS looks normal to me. [url]https://babeltechreviews.com/gtx-1080-ti-sli-performance-25-games/view-all/[/url]

The Idea is to upgrade my monitor to a 4K 144 Hz Monitor with HDR as soon as one comes out... and as far as my results show, I will not be enjoying that refresh rate to it's greatest performance.
