To read this review go to: http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_780_TF_Gaming/
This card is faster than titan in far cry 3 that 384 more shader units is nothing to that clock difference ... I wonder when will they start to push 7 GHz memory out of the box for 780s
The Asus DCUII PCB looks better but this one looks like a better deal overall.
Are there any hints for a release date on these?
Enough with the brown pcb already
Why doesn't the test bench make use of an SSD?
Congrats to be the first person ever to ask that. SSD could shuffle around data internally which could affect performance of the test system. Other than that, no reason.
What are you concerned with?
Why did MSI use stock PWM R22 etc instead of so called military class 4 (SFC, h-c cap mosfet) mentioned at their homepage?
This is the 4th review so far with default 780GTX board.. or did they send a test model?
Shame about the brown pcb. If they had included a backplate it wouldn't matter, but they didn't.
Can't wait to see how the lightening edition performs.
What does that mean?
That the performance of the SSD is not always as linear as the hard drives so the hard drive setup yields data that is more easily comparable between reviews.
Amazingly quiet! Can't believe you guys are still including the runt frame inflated 7990 fps numbers which many sites have exposed. http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/foru...60843-amd-hd-7990-review-malta-arrives-9.html
I disagree with rating. I can say that Bugatti Veyron is awesome car, but it's not for all. The same with hardware. Price should have a greater contribution to the overall value.
Well I believe if one is considering this level of performance then price should not have a higher influence.
Great review Wiz
That makes no sense, are you saying they scale the data after the tests?
SSDs reorganize their data internally to improve performance
OK, that makes sense. I did not know this.
Why is this MSI Gaming N780 clocked at 902 MHz (954 MHz with boost) when the one at newegg and MSI's website is clocked at 954 MHz (1006 MHz with boost)?
Not just here, but all the reviews I've found have the card clocked at 902/954.
This review is so recent, it's kind of confusing.
This card will run at 954 when you enable the Gaming App thats included. By default clock it seems is 902 Mhz. The MSI Gaming App has 3 modes (silent - 863 mhz / Gaming - 902 / OC 954 ). I believe thats how it goes, so for that matter the card is marked with 954 OC, because it has been factory tested and supported with the Gaming APP.
Oh, I see. Thanks for explaining.
