While that card is the king of gaming (for now), the big daddy of Nvidia Kepler-based GPUs isn't even here yet.

In The News From around the web

Well, now an enthusiast called K-putt has used a hacked Crysis 3 executable to run the game at 8K — and I’m not being hyperbolic when I say that the resultant screenshots are probably the most beautiful examples of real-time computer-generated graphics that I’ve ever seen.
As you’re probably well aware, ever since Crysis was first released in 2007, it has been the benchmark for graphics card performance and beautiful real-time visuals.
A DDR3-2400 Mhz Dual Ranked RAM was used for the APU to make sure it performed at its best.
The second benchmark is also a well known GPGPU software called Sisoft Sandra GPGPU and though here the Maxwell GPU GTX 750 leads the benchmarks the margin is really not that huge.
The most graphics cards you can fit on a motherboard is 4, with the best offering at most 5 outputs per card.
If cost is absolutely not a factor, how do I get enough graphics cards running to generate all of the DIFFERENT screens?

It is a mistake not to support DX11.1 on Win 7

by David Stellmack |
fudzilla.com
It is hard to determine if this is something that gamers will consider a must-have feature and something that developers will feel needs to be included in their games.
The biggest feature of DirectX 11.1 is that it adds native stereoscopic 3D support, which gives native 11.1 applications support for viewing the content via 3D stereoscopic glasses by default, as it is built-in.
