All 4x crossfirex set ups actually do worse then 3.

For the average joe a 680 is a better card than a 7970. Doesn't mean it's true on OCN.

Average joe needs 660Ti. No more than that.

The thing is though, none of us here care if maingear, origin, etc. OEM that overprices everything will OC a card by 50MHz and say it OC's a better than a card they have the balls to OC only by 30MHz.

Same goes for their pathetic CPU overclocks. It's like saying alienware is the ultimate authority on how certain parts OC. Just about the most ridiculous statement you could make.

I don't disagree.

What I am saying is that guys whom have had both of these cards for over a month are having issues OC'ing the Titan. Perhaps they don't spend enough time doing it...Perhaps the alpha run wasn't as good as it normally is...Who knows?!

However, on average the 780's are clocking better the the Titans.

I'm not arguing they're terrible OC'ers...What I'm saying is that they've had a month to play with both cards and all of them are saying that the 780 is a better clocker.

Again, not arguing with your point, I'm arguing that they've had the time to play with them and are saying that one OC's better then the other.

I also realize there's a performance difference...I'm not even saying the 780 beats the Titan...I'm saying that in terms of overclocking, one is "vastly" ahead of the other in potential.

Clock for clock, the 780 is still 10% behind than a Titan. So what if a Titan can't OC well, it is still beat it (albeit slightly and obvious Price v. Performance is still crap).

You also have to note since the Titan has more VRAM and SMX enabled as well as having hardware DP FP64 enabled, it also uses more power than the 780 on the same TDP scale. So if you factor that, obviously the Titan will have more hurdles to cross to get better OC abilities (power draw limitation-wise) than the 780.

Just like I said above, I'm absolutely not disagreeing with either of your points, I'm saying that at this point, there's actually enough evidence to back up the overclocking statement, in my eyes.

Does that mean a 780 will beat a Titan? Not always...But, one has edged the other out.

Who knows -- Maybe it's a heat indexing issue with the Titan that won't allow boost to go as high...Maybe the hardware is too demanding and forces OVP...Who knows really but, on average the 780 is overclocking better then the Titans.

Get my drift?

How is this relevant?

You don't need to be FtW to flash a bios and OC over 1150MHz. Not like it's rocket science. Well maybe to the vendors it is but anyways... They have to cater to the average joe, we can just push our cards to the max.

Come on bro you know that is not true..
You see this guys pushing 50mhz and getting worry about 80c temps lol...

Sorry, but a Vendor recently told me that a GTX 690 takes 650w by itself because Nvidia recommends a 650w psu on the box. I put more trust into OCNs brass than a vendors opinion.

I talk to the competition, daily...You have to in this business...and we all talk about new hardware.

My own samples prove the end result...I tried practically everything with my Titan sample...It won't go beyond @1160...Maybe I'm a horrible overclocker...I don't know. What I do know is that it was significantly easier to get my 780 to 1200 then it was to get my Titan to 1160.

Other vendors are having the same issue but, again, what's that mean?

I'm not saying the run was bad or a Titan is limited...I'm saying that based on what vendors, including myself, are currently experiencing, the 780 is emerging as the better overclocker.

Will it beat a Titan? More than likely not...Especially with that 10% gap but, if my 780 can hit 1250 and my Titan is restricted to 1150...Bottom line is that my 780 is a better overclocker.

Reference* My 57o overclocks better than all 600 and 700x series cards.

Just like 7950's overclock better than 7970.. Same thing
