Apparently, 3GB is falling down on the job at 4K for some games. No, its not yet mainstream - but Seiki has the 39" 4K at around $650 and ASUS is expected to release their 39" 4k early next year, quite possibly in the under $1000 range. It was due 3Q this year, but probably got put off to include G-Sync. I am holding out for the ASUS because it refreshes at 60Hz whereas the Seiki is only 30Hz because they couldn't be bothered to include a Display Port connector. And, from a computational standpoint, the more memory the better. For me, 12GB sounds really nice. I have 32GB of 2400Mhz for my main memory, only 3GB for the graphics is a bit small. What's weird to me is the 384 bit interface instead of 256 or 512.

The seiki 4K monitor only goes 30hz so its worthless

3GB VRAM is what kept me from the 780 and has confirmed my crossfired 290 purchase...

I don't believe it has the legs on multi - monitor setups and is a little disappointing for the 780ti ...

39" is huge, that is a damn TV. No thank on that. 27"-30" max for a gaming monitor.

Still feel like 4K will not be here in the high end mainstream until Maxwell in Q3-Q4 2014. Us who don't like surround and enjoy a single 1440 can make due with 3GB until then.

Exactly.

This is about SPEED. If you want 3+ monitors or dual 4K monitors, wait for the 6GB version.

The problem is, people have unrealistic desires here.

They want a Toyota Prius (energy efficient) that can tow 75,000 pounds like a Ford F150 (3+ 1600p monitors) with a top end of a Ferrari F12berlinetta (speed), that costs as much as a 1985 Yugo (aka cheap).

This card was designed to be FAST and beat the R9 290X .... PERIOD.

yeah... i guess they will, at a premium price closer to Titan no doubt...

Its a shame, the upgrade potential of a powerful card like the 780ti put in SLI is wasted because of its 3GB... SLI, multi-monitor, and 4k are out of the question as they will all be VRAM blocked..

but im sure once they release the higher spec VRAM versions, the benches of these SLI'd at high res are going to be very nice viewing ..

Is it ?, what do we know?

At what Clocks is it faster? Stock, OC? By how much...
What Resolutions is it faster? 1080 1400, 1440 , 4K
Does it scale as well as the 290X at CF/SLI?

Hopefully the benches that should spring up in another hour or so will tell us something useful. By that time however there will be no cards to buy biggrin.gif
