Zotac GTX680 SLI Review
Having seen that the GTX680 and the HD7970 are matching each other blow for blow, we of course have to see how the scaling performs in multi-card scenarios.
As one would expect at release time cards are thin on the ground and so although we can't bring you our full Overkill3D style Quad results, we have been able to get a couple of cards together to see how the new Kepler handles itself in SLI.
For this we of course have to thank our good friends at Zotac who always come through when we need them. Because the current wave of cards are still all reference models we've paired it up with our earlier reference card. So it's a bit mix and match, but beneath the stickers they're all identical anyway.
So enough preamble and on with the testing.
Being a reference model the only differences are in the bundle that you get along with the card and Zotac shine once again with an excellent set of adaptors and games for your new card. It's nice to see something other than Dirt 3 being included to be honest.
