SLI Titans not very smooth
Hi There, Congrats on a beast of a card and I thought I would give some feedback on the current drivers whilst gaming at 5760x1080 Resolution. Most games are very smooth but a couple are not. I have come from SLI 680's and Far Cry 3 was great with the 313.95 drivers but not so great on Titans. Understandably, new tech can take some time to get working to its potential and I look forward to driver updates to address these issues. Here is some frame latency tests I did in a couple of the stuttery games. [IMG]http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s255/gregtheman_photos/farcry3time.jpg[/IMG] As you can see, Far Cry 3 is a stuttery mess with frame times upto 154ms [IMG]http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s255/gregtheman_photos/crysis3time.jpg[/IMG] Crysis 3 wasn't so bad but the occasional stutter and frame times reaching 198ms.

Hi There,

Congrats on a beast of a card and I thought I would give some feedback on the current drivers whilst gaming at 5760x1080 Resolution. Most games are very smooth but a couple are not. I have come from SLI 680's and Far Cry 3 was great with the 313.95 drivers but not so great on Titans. Understandably, new tech can take some time to get working to its potential and I look forward to driver updates to address these issues.

Here is some frame latency tests I did in a couple of the stuttery games.

Image

As you can see, Far Cry 3 is a stuttery mess with frame times upto 154ms

Image

Crysis 3 wasn't so bad but the occasional stutter and frame times reaching 198ms.

Image

BF3 was a little stuttery and you can see where from this graph.

As you can see, Assassins Creed 3 was flawless and it played that way.

Thanks for reading.

Wondering if that was that the 2 grand you spent? I just came from 7850s crossfire and my latency was much tighter and less stuttery then that for fc3 and crysis3. I would be quite upset if I tested on 2gs of cards and found that result. I suggest just frame limit a 1 or 2 fps before the refresh and as far as farcry 3 goes. It just always stutters it seems. dx11 is fudged and ubisoft doesnt give much support or patching towards it. I have the msi gtx 670 power edition now and fc3 is still a mess thought very much more playable. For me to play dx11 on my xfired 7850s I had to limit the fps to as low as 51 to actually stop the 100+ms stutters. Though not as smooth as 60+fps it was extemely enjoyable after that. Best part is I wanted to come to the green team because of the drivers and as of right now I cant update past 306 drivers. Amd has quite the support now. How can I post my results of latency for crossfire so we can compare? I have the same program just wondering how you got those screenshots.

Unfortunately you won't really be able to make a direct comparison because I don't believe any of those games have a built-in timedemo. Instead you'll be capturing a few minutes of random gameplay.

I do 5 min tests in game and use fraps bench viewer to give those nice graphs. I am not fussed, as I trust in Nvidia devs to sort this out. They are great at sorting small issues and I was highlighting the small issues I have found. I would have posted in the offical feedback thread but not one for Titans yet :) As for Far Cry 3, On my 680's in SLI, the 313.95 drivers gave great performance (As shown here) [IMG]http://i154.photobucket.com/albums/s255/gregtheman_photos/farcry3313.jpg[/IMG] Very smooth with those drivers.

ya whether its a benchmark or random demo you can still judge the performance across each gameplay experience. I was just wondering how to post the screenshot of fraps bench viewer. I have the saved graphs of my results.

I use prt scr and then paint. Crop the pic of the graph and then use photobucket to host. Hope that helps :)

Using windows "Snipping tool" is quite easy to make a screen shot.
