[Various] GTX 780 Reviews - Page 22

post #211 of 2543
I've been tempted to buy a second 670 since upgrading to a 1440p monitor but held off because of the 2GB ram limit and to see what the 780 has to offer. After looking at the various reviews and seeing the performance, the 780 does look good but since it is a refresh and the performance increase wont even compare to a 670SLI although a single more powerful card is more my preference the performance value just isn't viable. Seeing the direction Nvidia is heading with recent cards I think ill hold out for the 800's waiting with anticipation for the next 12+months before I upgrade unless AMD expected new release is a top performer.

To all those that are buying 780's I am sure you will be happy with no regrets and wait eagerly for the postman tomorrow. Enjoy the near Titan for 2/3 the cost thumb.gif

You know, the EVGA 780 FTW looks kind of interesting, with 8+2 phases. I was thinking about waiting for that but then I realized that it would be for the best to pick up a reference 780 for water block fitment. If the 780 is anything like the 680, 6+2 phases is plenty for a 1.2 volt locked card. Even the bios flashed voltage unlocked 680's didn't perform THAT much better than a heavily overclocked 680 under water.

EDIT: Am I the only one who finds the ACX cooler ugly? The 7970/680 Lightning looks so much better.

Makes the 780 redundant in some cases lol.

From the note regarding our test system and competition:
Quote:
*Note the HD 7970 X Turbo was the only GPU tested with AMD’s new driver with our GPU test setup when I graphed these results. It is a HD 7970 with strong stock clocks, operating at 1180 MHz Boost and 1500 MHz on the memory. Thus, you’re seeing some of the best AMD can come up with vs. the GTX 780. The results may surprise you.

It is definitely a beast, but BF3 was the only game that painted it in such a light. Everywhere else, the GTX 780 won out.

I'm not really impressed by it unfortunately, I was expecting more out of the GK110-300 frown.gif

Any more and it would be a Titan, don't really see how you would expect more. Unless you're talking about the price that is.

Since the regular EK GTX Titan block doesn't cover any of those areas to make a difference I'd have to say it would. EK hasn't released a new block so that should also kind of confirm it. They've had blocks out at release of the GTX Titan and and HD 7990 and I doubt they would miss this opportunity.

Especially on surround... if they are lower then the 680 I would jump on it pretty fast!
What do you mean by "they"?
Most likely game X uses the same amount of VRAM on both cards.

I think they look fine, but the reference ones look way better. Hard to beat that one tbh.
