What do you need for 1440p or 4k?

A 780 TI does 1440p better than a 680/770 does 1080p from my experience. I had a 680 and it maxed most games 1080p/60fps and I occasionally had to lower AA on some of the more demanding games. With my 780 TI, I'm able to up my settings and get better a better framerate. I mean, it shouldn't be that big of a surprise because the card is along the lines of 85% faster but all I'm saying is with the comparison, a 780 TI is great for 1440p as a single 680 was for 1080p.

i don't think 24 gb of VRAM is necessary, I think 12GB would probably do the trick.
VRAM isn't the issue. It's the GPUs not being powerful enough to render games at that resolution. I wish GPU tech would hurry up and catch up with CPUs.


GPU tech kind of caught up with and surpassed CPUs already. With a high end GPU and CPU, you're likely to be CPU limited in a lot of situations.


It pretty much exceeded the CPU (at least for graphics work) when the first GeForce card (also the first GPU) and it's T&L unit were released as for the first time nearly all graphics work was done on the GPU.
If that were the case, then upgrading your CPU would give you a bigger FPS gain than upgrading your GPU. That's just crazy talk.


A:that's not how it works
B:it already improves your lows more

Also, Titan Black only does 3-way SLI.

Since when? I've seen benchmarks where they used 4-way SLI.

NVIDIA SLIŽ Technology1
Used by the most demanding gamers worldwide, SLI technology lets you link up to three GeForce GTX TITAN Black GPUs together for astounding performance. And with NVIDIA's track record for fast and frequent software updates, you'll not only get the best performance in existing games, but future games too.

I'd just like to point out that VRAM does not stack in SLI configurations.

For 4K you need at least six GTX Titan Blacks. Six of them should do. For now. You'll probably need a couple more in a few years.

Don't forget that you have to upgrade your processor every 3 months or it'll stop playing any games at all at more than 15fps because that's how computers work! And if you don't get the most expensive CPU available, it just won't even run anything.

There was a recent demo of project cars @ 12k (it was 3 4k monitors iirc) where they used 4 titans to get 60fps.

True. If you don't have the newest 15-core Xeon, and by that I mean if you don't have THREE 15-core Xeons on the same motherboard, you'll be holding yourself WAY back.

I'm assuming on the lowest settings? The Titan is powerful but it isn't 24,883,200 pixels powerful.

3GB+ of VRAM per card

For 60FPS @ 4K, you need very beefy GPU setup. Think quad Titan Black SLI.


Fix'd.

rtfm noob it doesn't stack
