Thanks for the great review. The card looks very tempting tbh.
To be honest I'd buy Titan again, even if GTX 780 was launched the same day as Titan.
Why? I can use more than 3GB VRAM and I can definitely use that % more in performance.
Still this is a stab to who purchased Titan only to play games with.
as i write, i think MSI and Asus will put their better cooler and overclocked/customized PCB to run this beast as a Titan... And they will result cooler and dead silent... Am i wrong ?
Nice card and great review. Price kills it for me but I guess in the end if you can truly afford this kinda card that price doesn't bother you. Its the broke fools like myself that have an issue with the price. lol
Id rather just get the reference 780, and throw a water block on it.
But then you spend another 150 bills ( average full waterblock prices at release ) to the card... Well i undestand if you love complete watercooling setup, maximum respect.
Can't adjust voltage anyway cause of Green Light AFAIK.
Custom PCBs are useless (unless you plan to hard mod the card) if nVidia doesn't lift that limitation and TBH they won't.
Reference + Waterblock or Reference + good aftermarket cooler is the way to go
your 670 should be perfectly fine for the games to come.
Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm more than happy with my purchase, and will probably buy a third Titan eventually, like I said in my post, ppl who use the card for computing purposes are better served by Titan, no doubt about it.
I have no doubt either in my mind that Titan is the better card, it's just that at this price point, and if you're interested in gaming alone, 780 is the wisest choice
That's what I like to say about my 680...........but then that devil we call the "Upgrade Bug" turns me the other way!
dam u AMD, it's same as 7970 almost everything, just they made better drivers
Same as the 7970?
AMD drivers are solid with single card, but multi card is FUBAR. Nvidia has issues with multi card too, but they handle it a bit better.
In what way is it the same as a 7970?
This card has more of just about everything except vram.
Waiting for the used 670/680 offers......
I wonder if ASUS are already planning on a GTX 780 Mars?
Second thought. If Nvidia allow board partners to modify the GTX 780 PCB, then it is almost inevitable that I will end up buying a Lightning variant if it has unlocked voltage. But that would piss on my Titan parade...
This card is rather tempting... But I'm just not sure if it's worth the hassle (and money) for an 18% increase in performance to what I'm currently using. I think I'll wait until it gets cold out again and I'm forced indoors.
I can't stop thinking this should have been the GTX570 of Kepler generation (Titan being the 580). You know, GK110 after GF110. Almost the same die size... Almost twice the performance over previous generation.. Priced at 350$/Euro...
Meh, no voltage control renders a water block pretty useless. I really like the reference cooler on it anyways.
Great review as usual W1zz!
I'm not broke, but i am a fool. Still not tempted.
The price is not "ideal" but not what i thought it would be TBH
No it's more like two guy with impossible to tell apart Bugatti’s sitting in front of a hotel in downtown New York City. The valet says he's mixed up the identical looking keys. The valet say, "which does it matter they appear indistinguishable to me"? Then one guy makes a case that he paid $2,250,000 and his has a top speed 253.81 mph! The other snickers saying he paid $1,462,500 and could hit 228.42 mph!
Given the environment how can they prove who is who’s’...? The valet just walks away shaking his head!
No points dropped for the high price? Red team this red team that? i find this review somewhat biased.
Keeps the temps and noise level low though.
This chip begins its thermal throttling at 70c so the stock cooler just doesn't cut it for overclocking, even if you can't adjust voltage
Watercooling is actually worth it!
already dropped. you go buy one and tell me what's wrong with it, other than the price. and i'll pay the restocking fee if you want to return it
Not since I went 5760 x 1080.
