Great Article Ari. If I ever get a second GTX980TI and a 4K monitor I'll test it against your findings.

Thanks for the feedback! Definitely post back if you test this. By then games may respond differently to 4K and SLI, maybe better, maybe worse!

I'm running 3 1600x1200 1080p monitors currently and I am building a new rig similar to your ULTRA-HIGH-END PC and was wondering will one EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Ti Hybrid 6GB handle the 4800x1200 on ultra for most games today? Later down the road will upgrade to 1440 or 4K monitors.

Yes, a single 980 Ti can handle that resolution at maximum settings in just about every game, holding 60Hz. Now, if you had 144Hz or Gsync monitors, that would be something completely different, as you'd want at least 80-90Hz. So keep that in mind when you select your next monitor.

Ari, still getting great frame rates from a single GTX980TI running the Dell U3415W even at 75Mhz.

Hi, I'm new to the forums. I see a few topics around 4K gaming, I'm hoping I can get some help from here. My question is regarding the R9 Fury, I'm wondering if this card has the capability to support 2 4K screens at 60hz, under crossfire. Only gaming on one, and using the other for real estate. I've done a bit of research, I see that the way for AMD cards to support 4K is through display port 1.2. I have been informed that the FuryX only comes with 1 DP, which means I will not be able to CF when supporting 2 screens at 60 hz. However the Fury being used in the 3,000 elite build by Gigabyte has 3 display ports. Thank you guys in advance. I have been researching on this topic for well over 12 hours yesterday. First time ever for me to make a post on any kind of forum. Haha, I usually just read them and learn.

Welcome to the TBG Forum, whchuan11!

Actually, both the Radeon R9 Fury X and the Radeon Fury have three DisplayPort outputs, so they have the same 4K capabilities. Both can support dual 4K screens at 60Hz.

Thanks Ari, thanks to your web site I learned a lot more about hardware. I'm an mech engineer, these things are very interesting to me. I've also built my second machine referencing posts on TBG. Congrats on your success. Thanks for the enlightenment.
