This card is a better card than a geforce Titan, there's no other way to put it.
Thanks for the review W1z!
Great card this is something i would actually consider buying.
no game included ? Pffffff almost buy it ...
Another impressive GTX 780 option, thanks for the review.
why haven't I seen these benched with 3dmark or heaven yet?
I know itll be a while until 3dmark puts it in their site with results etc.
but I guess I want to see numbers im familiar with and see differences across the board with a level bench field!
Im not sure if any one realizes and I dont think it should have gotten a thumbs down for. But not one GTX 780 regardless of manufacturer comes with Metro Last Light promo.
Yup. We originally had it listed as plus, which caused confusion. so I clarified with NVIDIA and moved it to negative to make it absolutely clear. I'm not considering it as negative, it's just there for information
Nice review! This card a better buy than Titan
Yeah, Nvidia don't like giving stuff away. They are in the business of making $$$
What a shame !!!! But in my country you will get Metro last light both if you buy 690 and Titan.
Yeah it su.... s big time !!!
This one I'll actually consider once it looses the baby fat (maybe the extra 60 dollars). At a lower price like sometimes happen I would definitely would make the effort, I'll keep it in my radar for maybe a fall buy. I know that the product is hot now but we are only seeing chosen cards been reviewed, when the people get their hands on them and it becomes a tried and true product (which I have the impression it will become) then its viable for me. Nonetheless EVGA did a great job on this one, also have to agree with Wiz, c'mon EVGA no backplate? Just in case you didn't notice we are shelling out 650.00 for a commodity product please don't be cheap.
Evga's SC has a nice overclock over stock 780. I wonder if Asus version can top these numbers.
Im waiting the asus Directcu version too ! I think will be slightlty faster than this.
Yeah !! But wait a moment there is a faster one comes from MSI ...
MSI GTX780 Lightning they put raw overclocking more than Asus DirectCu 2 you wil get the fastest overlocked out of the box card...
( go check the 680 Lightning is a beast )
But is more targetet to overlockers than gamers... Nevermind i want higher FPS possible.
Would an open air cooler like this one or a standard stock blower cooler be better for SLI in terms of temps/noise (assuming a slot of space between the cards)?
This open air cooler will be better in SLI for sure, make sure you have at least one 120mm fan blowing in the middle of the cards and you will be fine with temps and noise.
Great thanks. Wasn't sure, as I'd heard some people sing the praises of blower style coolers for SLI/CF setups.
My top 7970 has consistently been 10C hotter than the bottom one even with good case airflow, but I guess that's just par for the course with multi-GPU.
Now I just gotta sell my 7970s and then find a pair of these cards in stock
Thanks for the review!
This card is a monster, great OC out of the box! And with a killer cooler design to boot, I've always thought of EVGA as one of the top tier Nvidia partners out there, not only are their designs top notch, but their costumer service is probably the best in the whole industry.
You can't go wrong by buying this card, it's probably going to be the 780 to look for
I'd love this card! I don't bother with Evga anymore though. The three cards I've purchased from them all died within 6 months.... so never again.
Whoa, really sorry to hear that, I hope you were able to replace your card easily, that's some bad luck mate!
One of my 680s was DOA but it was replaced immediately by EVGA, the RMA process was actually the smoothest one I've ever experienced in all my years purchasing hardware.
Was your experience dealing with their costumer service bad? I would definitely avoid a brand whose products keep constantly dying on me for no reason, so I understand your decision not to purchase their cards no more
Customer service was pretty good! Some of the best, actually. But after my second GTX 580 died right after the warranty expired I had enough.
I haven't had a single EVGA card die on me. Motherboards is a different story though.
Oh man, really sad to hear that mate, that's like the worst thing that can happen to anyone... that was a really unfortunate series of events.
