[VC] First GeForce GTX 780 Review Leaks Out, Inno3D GTX 780 iChill Exposed - Page 52  

post #511 of 580
If this review is accurate I'm going to buy a 780 Hydro ASAP. Performance can only get better and so far it looks GREAT!

Someone on here stated they had called MSI to ask about a lightning and the guy he spoke with only confirmed that a 770 lightning was on their roadmap at this point, which is a safe assumption anyway since they already have the r&d done on the 680 lightning which is essentially the same card. 780 lightning is still up in the air as far as I'm aware from what I've read here. Again this is still all just rumours, only ~7 hours to go and we should get some solid info.

Too expensive for the price/performance.

Some things you need to ask yourself is are you going to play heavily modded games (for example, modded skyrim). Also will a 6GB Titan even be needed at your resolution or setup?

If i were on single monitor i don't think it would be that much of problem. If your attempting something like Vega's setup and running res around 3240x1920 yup Titan it is, that said his quadfire 3gb 7970s did very well also. Really just a matter of what you want. I'm sticking with my 7970s hoping the pricing goes down and i can pick up a third. However if i had two Titans unopened i would most likely send them back and get three 780s while saving a little bit of money.

As for my setup no i plan on running a 120hz monitor Crossfire rig for some time, then within the year moving to a triple portrait setup with three 7970s or whatever i'm on at the time. It would be beneficial to have Titans or 780s but i can't afford them right now.

I would keep in view GTX Titan 6GB or GTX 780 6GB edition (of course SLI 2-3 way), for 4K or surround 2560x1600 x3

Indeed i was wondering though because i was watching PCper's video of 4gb 680s at 4k and it took that much res to hit 3gb+ on the Vram, though i hadn't taken into account what Alatar pointed out AA and so on.

Well i think that depends on the upgrade your making. I know some people on 480s and 580s. Hell up until a couple months ago i was on a single 470, this would've been a pretty good upgrade IMO. Expensive sure but not horrible IMO. That said is it worth it when it's eclipsed in the next year assuming Maxell or Volcanic Islands arrives on time?

Definitely, I plan to do what you do, start with a single monitor, then move up to triple later. Which is why i'm set on tri-sli 780's (as long as waterblocks get released for them soon). And as for returning titans for these, itdepends on your setup.

Well I currently have 1 7970. I think 3 will be great you won't need to worry about titan's or 780's with that setup. But if you were to start a whole new build, go with 780's smile.gif

Why lie rolleyes.gif ? You were saying $700+ like many other people who are now claiming they predicted the price of this thing right.

Want to know what I really think?

there is really no need to 6GB for surround or 4K.
simply, with 6GB, you will see, through the various tools (such as afterburner), the allocated memory over 3GB, but the game will do well with also the video card with 3GB VRAM

post #519 of 580
By the time 6GB of VRAM is being fully utilized you probably won't have enough GPU power to enjoy the gaming experience imo. 3GB is the sweet spot and will probably remain so until some time next year or something. By then you can get maxwell or volcanic island instead for more powah.

Sorry but Crysis 3 uses 4000MB of VRAM maxed in 1080P surround and up to 6100MB in 1440P surround. Sure that's extreme cases but regardless people said the same for 2000MB of VRAM and GTX 690s when they released and they hit that wall and stop in games like BF3 without AA in surround. Games can use more than 3000MB with AA easily in surround and will continue to in the future.

3000MB isn't an issue when you've got a single GPU because it's processing power is limited. But once you go over SLI then it becomes a problem. Like Alatar said before, your processing power outweighs the available VRAM and makes upgrading pointless unless you run 120hz and are only after an FPS boost not increasing visuals. Which was exactly why GTX 690 SLI was a total dud. Scaling aside it had massive amounts of processing power but was VRAM crippled.

GTX 780 isn't a surround card, it's intended for single screen use (I don't count 4K). Crysis 3 only uses 2500MB in 1440P maxed so GTX 780s with 3000MB of VRAM should be fine.
