. Those are right from the review.
Also, GTX 680's tended to oc a bit lower than 670's given equivalent cooling. The same seems true here of Titan vs 780's.
I'd say losing by 0.8 fps (that's four-fifths of one frame per second) is winning already when you keep an extra $350 in your pocket
Cooling doesn't come into play here. At no point should you be pushing your card outside the limits of any of the GTX 780 coolers or hitting the 95deg temp limit of the cards. Nobody does with the GTX Titan, not to mention you're using Boost 2.0 now and the temp/power target works differently.
Something none of you GTX 780 fellows seem to understand is the GTX Titans are terribly low AISC quality 60-75% and low binned chips compared to the GTX 680-670 and what you're used to. You guys have no idea how they will overclock and what the average overclock will be. Assuming the GTX 780 chips are worse than the GTX Titan chips which are already pretty terrible yet overclock around 25%-35% (average), they might overclock the same regardless of being lower quality chips or be slightly worse over average. Which is what I'd assume give or take some extra headroom for being a cut down chip.
Regardless saying they compete with GTX Titans is just silly because they are already clocked higher and are slower. And the important thing is if the GTX Titans only have a certain amount of headroom (around 25%-35%, 1150mhz is what most people hit) and if the GTX 780 has the same, then they don't have much headroom left at all.
They are beast cards but don't expect them to do things they won't be able to.
When someone gets a GTX 780 stable at 1150-1230mhz run some benchmarks and we will compare.
