So we can use it for testing purposes. However we can move it to a 4x PCIe rather than a 16x or 8x. For an APU I would like to wait until HSA is implemented on AMD APUs. Otherwise there is no point in using APU. Have we considered Titan ? It is better than 580 SLI/680 SLI/690 in integer math. GTX 780 should be on par with 580 SLI in terms of integer math. Can we use the two GPUs on a 7990 separately ? If not we shouldn't be replacing 7970 on bull either. Regards, Sayantan Content of type "text/html" skipped
