I can kind of see what you're saying, but 7Ghz chips is part of what the Ti is. I couldn't add
as much to my Classified as some people can, but I certainly won't take away
anything from the Ti.
My Classified wasn't the best, so if I could've run 7Ghz memory I would have, ha. Trust me though, wouldn't be pleasant. I just posted the results as was the case in my situation. I say right in the description that I kept the Classified's overclock to one that was rock-solid and low temps, which, even though it's a Classified, is how many people are going to be running it for gaming 24/7. My Ti, similarly, was at a rock-solid overclock and at a low temp/voltage as well. Plus 1254mhz is quite an above-average overclock for a normal 780, so it gives people with a vanilla 780 a chance to see what they can expect for the extra $$$.
When doing overclocks, it's always a gamble between the two cards being compared. I didn't want to hold anything back on the Ti that I got so people can see what it can do, and I didn't want to run my Classified at 1.3v or anything like that because I wanted to compare my Ti to a 780 that's at believable 24/7 gaming clocks. Had I had a better Classified, I would have run it higher
Both of you misinterpreted what I meant to say.
I quote my self below in bold.

I don't see anything wrong by clocking down the mem on the Ti since it would give a good performance comparison since unfortunately that Classy mem couldn't go higher.
I meant it just for a good comparison clock-vs-clock on the 780 vs 780Ti. Because since those with 7200Mhz mem clocks on their 780 will get more performance out of it so the % difference from the 780Ti will be lower.
I hope this clear why I said to lower the Ti mem to match the Classy mem. But I think I'm already misunderstood and even by posting this I'm probably making it worse.
As I said, I did not meant anything bad by it. Your trouble is well appreciated as I already said.

Like it or not, the memory differences on the two cards are very real, and to artificially test something otherwise would just be nonsense.
I didn't know that and I quote you: "most classifieds will not run 7 GHz mem".
And maybe invalid
was a wrong choice of word. I should have said "I prefer
" or similar.
The point is I would prefered
or loved to see that 780Ti@1254/1800 against a 780@1254/1800 in a few game benchmarks if it was possible.
I don't think I have see anywhere a review or something that pits 2 same core/mem clocked 780/780Ti in game and synthetics.
Anyway I apologize for any confusion I may caused. Edited by Koniakki - 11/15/13 at 5:51am
