I'm in process of selling Titan; I don't really want to take the cooler off now. But that would be interesting to see indeed. I'd say considering that both are essentially the same chip with same TDP, we'd definitely see temps improvements on Titan with ACX. If only NVidia allowed custom air cooled Titans. Sigh.

It would be so cool if you had included 3D Vision @1080p results.

From your own experience, what would you say is the overall difference between perfomance in gaming @1080p and 1440p? +80% @1080p? Less? More?

Thank you!

Thanks. Well, I had 120Hz 1080p monitor before U2711. 1440p is almost twice the pixel count, my take would be 40-60% faster card to keep the same FPS levels @ 1440p compared to 1080.

Thanks for your great efforts thumb.gif

Actually, I have refunded EVGA TItan before shipping, I thought I have done my homework, but I can't recall what made me reconsider my real life needs, so purchased an ACX 780 instead... kept thinking it is smarter choice for daily gaming on single monitor, I even believe it beats titan in some games on single monitor setups, so a Titan is no use for me at all...

I have NZXT Phantom 630, with full fans mounted, and CPU is water cooled, so I don't think I will have any heat problems, I may consider overclocking whenever it's needed later, maybe in a year time tongue.gif

Moved from THE BEAST EVGA GTX 480 SC biggrin.gif that was a great card, and still, and I don't easily upgrade, been 3 years, but I gotta get ready for Battlefield 4 biggrin.gif I could max all games without AA, had a great opportunity to sell it out for a good price after 3 years of use. Purchased my 780 2 weeks ago, and I still have to wait 3 weeks more without VGA rolleyes.gif

Your benchmarks heats my freakin brain and I can't take it any longer mad.gif

Welcome to OCN and thanks for kind words. I think you made right choice for single screen. And ACX cooler is awesome. thumb.gif

Thanks for this benchmarks, really what I was looking for smile.gif. I am in the process of building a completely new rig which I am doing in stages. I usually upgrade once every 3 to 4 years. Atm, I already have my new haswell processor and motherboard all setup but still running my old gpu. I am looking to upgrade to either a Titan based setup or a 780.

I game on 1440p and like to max everything out. I know even a 780 can max every game out there on a single screen and it has a higher TDP headroom than a Titan. However my only concern is with next gen games? Considering the new consoles are x86 based and we might see better and more demanding ports, will the smaller vram buffer become an issue for upcoming games? Thats the only thing thats holding me back on pulling the trigger on my gpu upgrade atm, because performance wise I am sure for a single 1440p screen both cards are essentially the same. I don't plan on surround gaming or 3D gaming anytime in the future.

I know its hard to say for sure before we actually see next gen games being ported to the PC, but I'd like to see people's opinions on whether the 6gb vram buffer on the Titan may actually be useful on single screen gaming for future titles?
