I must say that those cards look fantastic aesthetically, especially as a pair.

Good explanation for the VRAM aswell, everyone that said the 4GB cards were unnecessary will have to eat their words now that "next gen" is underway.

Watch Dogs, the current darling of the gaming crowd
Not sure you've been keeping up with current events, but Watch Dogs is no darling of anyone...

Either way nice review, great to see higher VRam really making sense now. It's about damn time!

Because people are saying it runs bad - it doesnt run bad it just needs a LOT of Vram

Here's my million dollar question, how smooth did Watchdogs play on these cards in SLI? My 780 SLI can get an average of about 70 fps @ 1440p completely maxed out but the moment I start riding a vehicle with any sort of speed, the frame rate tanks to about 20 - 30. It recovers very quickly but it still making the driving choppy. I've even heard it doesn't run well at 1080 maxed on Titan SLI. I heard the frames don't tank quite as hard but it's sounds to me like it's not well optimized. I have other games that use all the 3gb of vram on my cards but still play like butter. I would love to see some 6gb card and 8gb AMD card results.

WD runs like crap on both Nvidia and AMD, but strangely not for everyone, including cards with sufficient Vram.

I think everyone gets the low FPS while driving though, not sure what causes it.
The game uses a lot of Vram on high and ultra settings, at 1080p my Vram usage is around 3.3gb constantly, going higher in places like up to 3.8gb.

Not played much of it though because I have a really low frame rate for some reason. Even on medium settings I struggle to get 50fps, I don't have any problems with any other games so I know it isn't my PC and i'm using the 14.6 drivers AMD released for better performance.

Well after that review, my mind is certainly made up now, I'm definitely going to get the twins instead of a Poseidon or any other singular card, I've been toying with the idea of them for a few months, and then RK released that teaser of them, and I been wanting to see this review ever since but was leaning towards the singular card option instead.

Now I just got to make my mind up with the case, Corsair Obsidian 750D or NZXT H440, I am leaning towards the 750D along with a Maximus VII Hero and Frontbase (although I would love to get hold of one of the new Maximus VII Formula boards), and wc the cpu and heatsink, paired with the new 4790K cpu and 16GB Vengeance Pro memory, so thank you TTL for helping me now I've seen that with making my mind up on things, now I just got to finish getting money together and ordering the parts in about a weeks time, if not sooner.

TTL, can you answer me just one Question though please. What size PSU would be needed for the twins?, would a RM 650 be enough or would need to get the RM 750?
