NVIDIA Announces GeForce GTX 780 Ti to Counter Radeon R9 290X

With benchmarks of the Radeon R9 290X doing rounds, it's getting increasingly clear that NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780 won't remain competitive with the Radeon R9 290X for too long; and the R9 290X isn't competitive with the GeForce GTX TITAN enough to warrant a price-cut for the $999.99 SKU. NVIDIA's solution to the tangle is a newer SKU that replaces the GTX 780 from its current $649.99 price-point, which trades blows with the R9 290X. Called GeForce GTX 780 Ti, the SKU could be an overclocked GTX 780, or one that ships with a few more CUDA cores. NVIDIA didn't reveal any technical specifications, other than posting a teaser picture CGI render. To quote NVIDIA on this, "Stay tuned for details."

You cant handle the Truth!

.....wow the stupidity level just sky rocketed.....its amazing how many don't have a clue about true(behind the scene cameras off) politics or economics....and yet they believe so strongly....
(but yes household economics = national economics we created this mess) ...anyway this is about a graphic card so...All hail the newer King(780ti) that'll replace the the new king(r9) for a few months...

Came here to see the progression of a graphics card thread and found politics.

Good.

Yep, AMD have the 290X, NVidia answer with the 780Ti, then AMD answer with 290 XT then Nvidia do a 780 STFU edition, then AMD can do a 290XTX FU edition. Personally Im waiting for the 290XTX Ass Reamer edition.
Would love an AMD Rapeon XXX Edition :roll:

I think it will be a full GK180 15SMX chip but without Double precision of course (same DP speeds as 780GTX), ram probably 3gb maaaaybe 6gb, but im leaning more towards 3gb.

Welcome to TPU :toast:

Maybe ease up the the bolded text - might get a bit 'shouty' looking.

And word of warning to the first post of a new poster, this statement:
this is Graphic BLOWUP All AMD GPUS
isn't helpful.

Be nice now and be objective please. ;)

I'll sum up the current situation using the following quote:

"A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years. " - Alexander Tytler

Since its close to Halloween...

I think its a TITAN that got the s**t scared out of it by the R9 290X.

That's why it doesn't have a GTX 780 TiTAN :p



It better be reasonably priced...

Ah who we kidding it will scare most of us with the price tag

Make us thankful at Thanksgiving we didn't spend the money on it and can use it to avoid the in-laws.

It's much more plausible as a Titan Ultra imho.

Fully fledged 15 SMX with a frequency bump to 1 GHz (boosting around 1.1GHz) could very well give a performance jump of 15%-20% over Titan.

its GK110 we talking about... its not plausible that a GK110 based 780 card become a GK180 based card while having a Ti added to it : its just a OC raising on the GK110 780

they will not do a 780(ti) who would be more powerfull than a Titan ... its not logical

well "Atlas" is a Titan ... but a K20 "average joe" edition isnt a K40 :D aahhhh i love those little news who bring nothing but chaos :toast:

Are they really smarter than us, or particularly me?



I don't think so.

Anyway, we need a sub $200 to counter R7 260X, which is pretty much not a good card.

Possibly the 750 Ti. Price cuts as follows:

760: Seems fine
770: At least $320
780: Must be in the middle of 290X and 290
Titan: Same up to $50 more than 290X, depending on benchmark

My educated guess: Overclocked GTX 780, possibly matching Titan (although 780 is already close to it)
It's the best for everyone, because that way the prices go down.

If Nvidia can learn price/performance, they just might have a customer!

An uberclocked 780 can outgun a stock titan.

Wait for performance drivers to get released for the AMD Radeon R9 290X. The performance will only go up,
