Although it is in the GPU-Z database, usual pinch of salt disclaimer, etc. I don't think GPU-Z uploads can be faked but I could be wrong. I haven't seen fakes there.
Anyway with regard to the 780ti, I don't necessarily view it as a bad thing. The 780ti will be 650$ and will have aftermarket designs which will be faster than 780 aftermarket designs. Furthermore, the GTX 780 will be getting a price cut to the 550$ range according to WCCFTECH (news posted today) along with three free games.
It is a pointless card for existing 780 owners like many of us (I have a 780 myself) but for new GPU purchasers, next month is a good time to buy IMHO. Basically in the next month you'll get more performance for less money, regardless of whether you choose AMD or NV, you know?Edited by xoleras - 10/22/13 at 7:52am
