Gigabyte’s Waterforce triple GTX 980 graphics card kit needs its own radiator case



Quote:
During the last generation of games consoles PC gaming took a bit of a downturn in the graphics department. Console versions came first, meaning the PC ports could always easily run with a mid-range card. However, with the PS4 and Xbox One adopting an x86 architecture, the opportunity to start pushing the graphics on PC is there once more, and Gigabyte has developed a crazy watercooled triple-SLI graphics cards solution to cope.

dwarfer66, I hope it will wash out. I haven't priced that set up, I expect it would cost more than most of our computers.

Sorry you had to do that, Tommy. I know 2 970's will beat a 980, but I have tried to stay away from SLI/CFX. Too many horror stories and too many games that don't support it. But, you know, if you stop and think about it, Nvidia controls the power target and the additional voltage a manufacturer is allowed to give. So, unless you have a special binned chip in the card or a modded bios, there is not much that can be done. Nvidia has pre determined what any card will do. If you get an OC version, whatever headroom was there is partially already taken. The same will be true for the 970s too.

Yep single card all the way in unless you want to have problems in most games.
