Is a reference gtx 880 likely to be faster than a stock 780ti kingpin?

    GTX 680 was the top end card for the 600 series but bear in mind that the GTX 670/680 were GK104 GPUs. That designation 104 used to mean midrange GPUs. The GK110, the real high end Keplers didn't come out for almost a year later. If the GTX 880 is a GM204 as rumored and still on the 28nm process then it's a difficult call to know whether it will beat the GTX 780Ti. If it were on the 20nm process then I would think that it could easily beat a 780Ti because Nvidia could push the clocks up for the same wattage used and the Maxwell design is more efficient anyway.

    So there is some user on OC.net that says he hasn't touched the Maxwell but knows some peeps that might have and the performance is beating the 290x by a good amount. I was gonna buy a couple of 290s for 4K, but now I think I'm gonna wait. This maybe our 4K card (I said it wouldn't be in another thread.)

    corrected, well if it's proven to be true ... but until "real bench" surfacing : no real clue, not mention of what is a good amount ... if its 15%-20% then 290X/780Ti or even 290/780 will still have sunny days in front of them.
