post #4071 of 9110
I saw this link just awhile ago - GTX 680 2GB vs Radeon HD 7970 Ghz Edition 3GB. Even the 3GB had performance hit with high AA settings and still the GTX 680 2GB has a better FPS. The game is Crysis 3!

If i understand this correctly and thinking ahead. I think the option would be to SLI or get a better card in the future if the performance will be hit in the future games, which is 2 years from now? biggrin.gif

2 years from now, i honestly don't know how performance would be, but i believe you would be fine for at least 2 years (or more) with 770 SLI, and MAX in-game settings. The only thing is you "might" have to turn down AA settings on some graphically intensive titles. like crysis

From what i've seen, developers are working more on tweaking their graphical details and animation to make them look more presentable/realistic in games. It's just like drawing, if you are a skilled artist, you will know that the more time you put into an artwork, the more better it would turn out, and just focusing on shading alone can make an artwork much more presentable.

What i'm trying to say is, instead of them adding more stuff that would make games a pain to run on GPU's, they are tweaking most of the things they already have. wink.gif

Man thats a tough choice. I think the 770sli will be great on 1440p but then your limited in the future which depends how long you want to wait till an upgrade.

The stock 290x seems to not cool too well and unless you plan on putting it under water will likely offer inconsistent performance. Wait till aftermarket coolers come out for that.

The 780 will be a monster if you sli that in the future but will offer great performance.

7990 I dont have much info about but I would probably stay away from since it seems cf amd drivers are very touchy.

Thanks. I would eventually have a second 780, but it seems rather expensive for rather small gains over 770 sli.

Thinking either the lightning cards or the Evga.

Well, I expect tight binning on the Lightning cards, but EVGA's Superclocked may not be binned that stringently. For example, my core alone won't OC over 1189 even at 1.250V.

When it comes to non-manufacturer unlocked GPU's

1, EVGA for customer service, and "Maybe volt modding too"

2, MSI for easy voltage Modding but not really stable voltage = lesser OC headroom

3, ASUS for a more citical process to unlock voltage, but the best for stability = Hardwork, but more OC headroom.

4, GIGA, no voltage modding yet = little OC headroom compared to others

Personally i would go with MSI... Never had an issue with them, and i've always won the silicon lottery with them. biggrin.gif
Hmmm... Nice score on your 680 thumb.gif. I guess the tiny boost is from my memory clock speed.

thank you, I think I will get the giga because I don't need to hard OC my vga biggrin.gif

I think asus has one of the beefiest cards BUT has no software voltage unlocked...The lightning would be a great choice if you plan to over volt but evga has amazing warranty. I have heard of in some reviews and a few members where their lightning on stock voltage didnt break 1300mhz so its still a luck thing on stock voltage. I dont really think it matters which card you get in the end if you dont plan on over volting it at all either, in that case the cooler is the most important aspect.

I dont think there is any special binning other than making sure it runs the clocks they state. I know asus for their TOP cards had some crazy binning (they did a video a while back in the rog site) which I bet is similar to many of the other manufacturers for their premier cards, but as far as headroom above advertised spec is all luck unfortunately.

Yeah man honestly I would return it if I were you. I DO NOT like to do that but you paid extra for a superclocked one but a base model one would have been no worse. I would expect at least 1200mhz considering it already has more voltage than a 680. While overclocking has no guarantee, the VERY FEW times I have done that I made sure to buy a more expensive item to kinda compensate. The next owner may never even oc it anyways.

I will say though, that memory overclock is about as important as the core with the 770, if you can at least do 1189mhz but game at 8000mhz, your still good. That would be like a 1320mhz at 7000mhz, while guessing, its probably about that range. Its kinda all in our head to a certain point as well.

That's a good point; binning probably is only for the top cards. The inevitable silicon lottery! biggrin.gif

Haha, well, I'm about 30 days past the return date. But, right, haha, I'm not exactly hunting for frames here, lol. It was more for the thrill! biggrin.gif But, thank you for the sympathy. I was pretty bummed. frown.gif

I mean, if I get adventurous, I could use EVGA's Step-Up program and grab a standard 770 w/ ACX 4GB for about $20. But, I don't need 4GB and the silicon lottery is still in play! Who knows? Maybe that one might not even break 1100MHz. And I double the amount of RAM chips that need to be well-binned, too, so the RAM probs won't go so high.

Unfortunately, my 2GB RAM peaked a while ago. At 1189MHz core, the RAM maxes out at 7400MHz. If I drop to 1161MHz core, I can run the RAM at 7700MHz. I thought the 28MHz core drop was worth the 300MHz RAM bump. smile.gif

But, that's true...it is in our heads at some point. However, I did see a review of an godly GTX 770 DirectCU II: 1383MHz core and, get this, 9560MHz memory. I think the RAM might be a typo (that's legitimately unbelievable). Edged out a GTX 780 in Far Cry...

WOW yeah Im guessing that was a typo as well. But yeah dude look at how close all those benchmarks are, I mean at the end of the day we cant tell the difference between 1189mhz and 1300mhz. Its because we love to push our hardware to the limit.
