    I suppose this should finally silence the people who have argued that AMD sitting on their hands rather than innovating with new products (not just new bundles) wasn't hurting the industry or us.

    In fact, it was. Just as soon as AMD decides to compete, nVidia responds with new rebrands, new overclocked cards, new bundles, and lower prices. All across the board.

    If only AMD had shown up earlier this year when they were scheduled to, we'd have such crazy prices now as to blow our minds. Alas, AMD gave us Never Settle and asked us... to settle.

    A reference card could do that without mods...

    Until it throttled anyway. Modded BIOS removes the throttles, ensures 100% performance 100% of the time.

    I thought AMD already used the "GHz Edition" branding on their 7970s? It seems odd that NVIDIA would use the same branding as their competitor who was first with it. I'll bet the final name is a bit different.

    That's what I was talking about. They're desperately trying to catch up even with "superior" hardware. They are rehashing their top of the line GPU's to compete. Frankly I think they would've competed well enough with just the price drops and then going back into R&D and coming back with a whole new strong series not just fiddling with existing hardware and blatantly deceiving us the consumer.

    The could release 2 cards

    GTX 780 Ti - Base model

    GTX 780 Ti Boost - Higher clock, They already used the "Boost" name with the 650s

    Exactly:toast:

    I have not had any issues with throttling with my 780's overclocked...
    But that is just me and my experience.

    No issues here with the reference I had with throttling and those clocks. ;)

    Do you even own a 780? I had two reference 780's that hit 1200mhz on 1.2v and the reference fan with a custom profile kept them below 80 degrees, and far far away from the thermal throttling limit.
    Either you live in the Sahara, or just used mayonnaise as thermal paste.

    The power limit could also be a factor, but it certainly wasn't in mine. ;)

    Sigh....

    Quoting this again so people can get their heads out of their butts and see that the "GHz Edition" branding is NOT BY NVIDIA. A board partner has taken the B1 stepping and overclocked it, then slapped the branding on THAT. EVGA has been selling the B1 stepping for a while spanning all their SKUs from top to bottom.

    I was just responding to the posts above mine which were talking about a "GHz Edition" NVIDIA card. I didn't think it was likely either, which is why I made my post.

    Dual GPU card, more power use, heat to dissipate, and potential lack of scaling on new titles as well as the microstutter issue in multi-monitor setups.

    Well I'm running my GTX 780 Classified @1306 core so I don't see why I would be interested in any of the new variants. I assume most of them would be on the same level or below what I'm running right now so I think I'll pass.
