These results do a great job showing how biased the PCH board is towards Nvidia.


Some people want nothing to do with Multi-GPU setups.


Doesn't matter dude, he didn't ask which you would prefer to use or is easier to use, he asked which would perform better.... and it's not even remotely close.


Either way, people will vote for what they prefer. Dude.

^^ The question isn't which one you would prefer though...

That would be akin to asking "which game has better graphics, Half Life 1 or Crysis 3" then a bunch of people vote for HL1 because that's the game they prefer. That's just totally ignoring the question being asked and voting out of fanboyism.

I'm well aware. But you need to face reality. Polls are always going to be a popularity contest. "Fanboyism" as you call it.

Deal with it and move on.

That makes absolutely no sense. Say I set up a poll asking the age of these board members. Is that a popularity contest?

You are joking, right?

That's fine and simply goes to show how blindy biased Nvidia fanboys on this board can be.

My point was that your original post "Some people want nothing to do with Multi-GPU setups." suggested that you yourself voted Nvidia and that it was perfectly reasonable to totally ignore the question being asked. I don't think that's reasonable at all, if you are just going to ignore the question and vote based off of your fanboy then what's the point of even responding. It only goes to show either a lack of reading comprehension or severe lack of knowledge of anyone that voted Nvidia... which I guess is kinda appropriated and may be the only significant information that can be pulled out of the poll; since the correct answer is kinda set in stone based off of plenty of avilable data.

Wouldn't say that. AMD multiGPU was garbage until last week. You can't blame the distrust in AMD's products when AMD built themselves that reputation over many years.

If we're going by benchmarks for 99% of the 7970s and 7970GHz market life, in CF, the 780 smashed it. CF did not function properly. It was a terrible value and a dishonest product feature.

Yes, they fixed it, DAYS ago, after an unacceptable length of time. This problem existed since as long as modern DX11 video cards and CF have existed, at the very least (it probably goes all the way back to the advent of CF, but we'll ignore that fact).

And you expect people to turn around their opinions so quickly?

I voted 7970CF and made a post indicating so, but if anything the 780 win is expected. AMD did this to themselves. This isn't fanboyism. This is reality of cutting corners and ripping people off.

AMD is going to have to gain consumer trust back among enthusiasts by providing PROPER and CONSISTENT CF support for months and months to come. People aren't so easily persuaded, with good reason.

Dear AMD, you lost this random unimportant poll on a video game message board because no one trusts you. I hope you realize what you've done.
