Yeah, you're not going to find much company on that one. You honestly can't see the difference there? How about between 40fps and 52fps? That brings it from somewhat-choppy to basically-smooth for many gamers. 52fps vs. 55, not so much. That again is the difference. It's fun to sit here and argue endlessly about how it's 3%, no it's 8%, no it's 1fps, no it's 3fps, but at the end of the day we're buying these cards to use, not sit around thinking about how awesome it is that we own them. Right?
And that right there illustrates my points about perfectly smile.gif.

And this reality thing would be all well and good if you percentages were somehow based on reality but they aren't.

1600p:

TPU: Titan was 9% faster than the 780, 780 was 22% faster than 7970GHz

Anand: Titan was 12.4% faster than the 780, 780 was 17.5% faster than 7970GHz

That's two reviews from opposite sides of the spectrum for you. It's not 5% and 25%, if anything is fantasy, it's this 780 matches Titan nonsense.

I think that nvidia should fix a bit the scaling on 2 cards and up. Dunno bad drivers or whatever but the performance is there.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)





Hope amd fix their scaling on some game (like AC3) because its bad for us that use multigpu and multimonitor. We deserve better support

Anyone else have their own opinion/suggestion?

I am in the same boat. 780 would make things more playable, from 30 fps to 50 fps for example, which is very noticeable, but I can still get away with lowering one or 2 settings and get 50 fps. Waiting for AMD. I won't do sli since farmi doesn't do as well as kepler

I would usually wait but every now & then I choose not to wait...This is 1 of those moments...The results are mind blowin' to me, especially when compared to the Titan thumb.gif

Can get the same performance with sli 660tis for $250 less or much more performance with sli 670s for $30 less. My annoyance of their pushing a higher price paradigm overrides desire.

Yes it is, was reading the thread & it's just too much, had to get that out of my system & went overboard.
Not singling you out stay puft, it was just the last post I quoted.

i feel very much the same. I do hope the Australian prices are reasonable. smile.gif

The 780 is fast card, but 660ti/7950 SLI and Crossfire are better options for that price. A massively overclocked watercooled 680/7970 will come close to the performance of this card at stock. Its still a great card but it will have zero impact on the price of the 680/7970 which is sad. All GPU consumers lost today.

The main issue that I'm contemplating is that this generation is releasing just before the next generation of consoles. Which we all know have a big influence on PC games graphically. We see that the 780 is a good performance gain from the 680, but will we end up seeing a huge leap in performance (like between the 7000 and 8000 Nvidia series awhile back) because of the introduction of the new consoles? Thus possibly making the wait worth it? I understand this is pure speculation, but it makes me have doubts in upgrading just yet.

That 780 is a beautiful card, unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) because I have an inverted motherboard in my case I generally limit myself to cards that funnel the air out the top. Not sure if having cooling on my card like that would decrease or increase heat.
