NZ pricing is outrages.

Australia isn't too bad this time around. EVGA is going for $729 which is good but what I don't understand is, why are Asus and Gigabyte $849 for the reference card ???? Stupid if you ask me

I hope the heatsink for these consoles is sufficient, would be a disaster if they overheat biggrin.gif

The fact that consoles can do what they do with so much less and optimization shows that they don't suck. If it were not for consoles we would be paying out the nose for hardware and games. PC does have the capability to look better, but better graphics do not always equal better gameplay. There have been plenty of games that were released for both console and pc that just sucked (look at the fable series) just cuz it looks good does not mean it is great.

That's $968 USD for a card that actually costs $650 USD.

It sucks for us NZ'ers. Badly. Even the Aussies have far more sensible prices ($750 AUD+).

Yea PCCG have EVGA reference for $729 and SC editions for $739 (sold out obviously). But then the ASUS reference model is running at a ridiculous $849. What the hell are ASUS and the wholesalers doing? Pricing themselves out of consideration? Or hoping that when the others sell out, people will impulse buy at the stupid price point?

Are there any AU e-tailers who ship to NZ?

I'm actually pretty happy with the GTX780. I wasn't expecting it to only be $729 here in Aus (making it almost $500 cheaper than the cheapest Titan). Looking at the performance, the price seems somewhat justifiable (10% slower than Titan give or take). Unless AMD slash the price of their 7900 series GPU's and bring the HD7970GE down around the $350 mark then I think the GTX780 is pretty well justified at $729.

If AMD don't want to release a competitor, then more power to Nvidia. At least they gave us a new GPU, whether you agree with the pricing or not. They're not sitting around making huge margins on almost 18 month old hardware. I know people sook about Nvidia pricing Titan and the 780 so high. But lets look at it from the other side; if AMD actually did something and did a Tahiti refresh, then it wouldn't happen. But AMD are content selling their 18 month old 7970's for $450 still (7970GE) and that's just ridiculous.

We are being screwed on both sides by AMD. They aren't giving us anything new, and they are still charging high prices for their 18 months old cards. I honestly don't understand why Nvidia gets all the flack. This pricing structure has been set by a lack of competition on AMD's side, not because Nvidia are just trying be bastards. If Nvidia were trying to be bastards the GTX680 wouldn't be around the same price (+/- $25) of the Ghz Edition 7970's. This pricing is simply the result of AMD dropping the ball and not doing enough to compete with GK110. Maybe its because they can't create a Tahiti based product to compete, but even if that is the case, slash the prices on your 18 month old GPU's.

But they are doing neither. So in all honesty, we should be supporting NV. The GTX780 isn't priced completely outlandishly, and its not like they even had to release the GTX780, they could have just done what AMD are doing and wait. But at least they gave us a more accessible GK110 equipped card and priced it rather reasonably. I know a lot of people will flame me for saying that, but its the reality. Nvidia are a business, they have shareholders, they are growing at a rapid rate, and even with a total lack of competition, they priced their new product within the realm of reasonable. So good on Nvidia for not completely raping our wallets (which they could have with the GTX780).

Not yet that I've seen. Just going by the specs, EVGA may have really nailed it with that cooler. Ball bearing fans..looks like a serious effort to up the ante on third party stock cooling.

Approx -

780 = £600

Nvida - you can go and ............................ mad.gif

Oh and what about the recession ?


Its not just about whether you can afford to buy it or not as someone said earlier. Like I said above. What is the price of your single gpu setup going to be in the following years too come? There are many of us that have purchased the top Amd or Nvdia card over the years but I can see that dwindling. All the time we adhere to their prices then why should companies worry?

people are still talking about titans lol

for months and months every smart poster has been saying the same thing

they were never meant for consumers, and the only people who bought them other than editors/researchers/whatever were ultra-enthusiasts with no regard for money

i mean what percent of nvidia sales do you guys think were attributed to titans?

5% at most?

probably less

i can buy 100 titans, doesnot mean i would waste my hard earned money on clearly overpriced product and i mean 780

Hybrid Synergy 12V Rail Design Hybrid Synergy design on four 12v rails with max loads (up to 18A on each rail, max 720W of combined power) pledges compatibility to graphics cards and superb system stability.

Is that enough to run this card?
i was running 24A 660ftw on a 500W fortron psu with 18+18A so 36A together.

so can we call EU commision to start hand out 4billion fines to nvidia as they are now a monopoly and amd has left the stage forever?

Using your graph we can say GTX 680 is equal to the 7970GHz and the GTX 670 is faster than the HD7970. rolleyes.gif


Fact: 780 is a solid 22-25% faster than the 7970GHz.
yeah please another 100 posts about 20 vs 22%, cause its so informative and those 1-2frames are worth discussing it. or maybe its 3 frames so lets argue

It's not Nvidia's issue somebody can't afford their top tier product. Can't afford an Escalade? buy a Denali
with amd doing nothing in FY 2013, nvidia is monopoly, lets start anti trust proceedings xD
