[VC] Official NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Performance - Page 18

The Achilles heel of this card if it comes out at the same price as the GTX 680 is that it will lose by comparison against the Radeon HD 7970 Ghz Edition, in a year people will be regretting having paid so much for a card that will likely be VRAM limited. The 7970 is more well prepared for the present, let alone the future, and with the GTX 770 having the cores and memory running faster and the TDP at a rumoured 220w+ Nvidia can't really boast much about power efficiency, even if it will still use less power than the HD 7970, but then again the Radeon has more compute power.

The only saving grace for this card is if it launches at $ 350, $ 400 max. That would leave a big gap between that and the GTX 780, and I suspect that Nvidia will do exactly this and then launch a GTX 775, with around 2000 CUDA cores, based on GK110. And if the rumours about the new AMD cards are right, AMD will do the same, as the top of the line chip is apparently only used for that card and the second best card is much less expensive, opening the door for a harvested part based on the higher end chip in the middle after the initial cards release.

A HD7970 is not an option for me.
It's buy Nvidia or suffer a world of pain.

Their drivers have been improving. And they seem committed to game development as the Never Settle bundles and TressFX in Tomb Raider seem to show, along with fast patches to improve performance in games where Nvidia is favoured (Metro Last Light). If they keep it up, people won't have many reasons to not buy, at least a single card. Even now, for most games, single card performance, from a frame latency perspective, seems to addressed. The solution for CF latency should be released in Beta form next month or in July, so things are looking better and better.

I'm also a Nvidia guy, but I'm willing to give AMD a chance. For now I'm keeping my GTX 480, the only card from Nvidia I think is really worth upgrading to is the GTX 780, but it's too expensive right now.

Hmmmm well this one is still too pricey for me.
So I will just have to wait for GTX 760 or something.
Still have to upgrade my CPU 1st sadsmiley.gif

question.
when the GTX 5 refresh from the GTX 4 came out it also was more power efficient besides higher clocks.

is the GTX 7 series just higher clocks and Boost 2.0, no power reduction.?
the cards are efficient enough in general, but not sure of all if any enhancements.

An AMD upgrade is not an option as I own a 3DVision2 monitor.

any word on pricing yet or what's the latest word on pricing.?

680 and 770 are the exact same cards.

the same yes but not the EXACT same, no...
re-brands but with minor changes / enhancements.
