The reason they can pull that off is because they're the largest seller of NVIDIA cards in North America. When a company sells such a large amount of product, they can afford to diversify their lineup to a greater extent than otherwise possible.

According to EVGA, it's still got the Titan's cooling apparatus, but obviously the outer shroud isn't as nice.

It likely wasn't offered by EVGA due to cost reasons, and the only AIB partner that I know of that's offering a Titan-style outer shroud is Inno3D (which sells to the European market, and not North America).

Why not do apples to apples and OC both and see how it performs? OC'd 780 =/= OC'd Titan

Sort of how a 780 OCd can catch a Titan for way less $$$$

It was a joke. wink.gif

Just repeating what GTX780 users keep saying as of late. Typically the cheaper card can be overclocked to match the card right above it in the pecking order. Anyway you slice it, the Titan is about $150 overpriced.

They're all different in slight ways

Could be a slight boost in stock clocks
Could be a better cooler (though aesthetically similar)
Then you add the Classifieds
Then you have 2 variations of each for 2gb or 4gb models.

Though I do feel for certain that my 670 FTW model does OC better than the average Evga reference model. Whether or not it's because of higher binning or not, I'm not sure, but if I wanted the best chances of having a better OC'er, I'd go for their upper end models.

For an "gaming evolved" title, it sure seems to be the opposite

but it is a good game. no doubt about that.

Again stop comparing OC 780 to STOCK Titan. No one on this site buys a Titan to run on stock bro.

If they have ACX available, just get that. The ACX cools better and it doesn't look as bad as the stock blower...

I think it's due to the fact that the 670 FTW uses the 680's PCB and power apparatus. Perhaps some binning factors in as well, but that's obviously harder to pin down exactly.
