best 780 ti vs msi lighting 290x?

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Which card do you think is superior on stock clocks and overclocking?
post #2 of 52
Best 780 Ti is the EVGA Kingpin.

Stock vs stock goes to Kingpin. Lighting hits 1080 mhz stock while Kingpin is 1137 mhz.

Overclock, at the moment, goes to Kingpin as well.

Keep in mind there are no Lightnings on that list yet.

There are guys hitting 1500 mhz on Classifieds and Kingpins here on OCN on water.

780 ti is a faster GPU for single monitor upto 1600p. R9 290X does well at 4k and multi monitor and especially in CF where it scales better than SLI. so for single monitor upto 1600p, GTX 780 Ti is a simple choice

SAPPHIRE TRI-X R9 290 (NON X)4GB GDDR5 OC faster than 780Ti in my machine on 3dMark 2013

Gaming on the cards is equal ,FPS wise R9 290 wins some and 780Ti wins some.
R9 290X is only a few %points difference so would still be the same as the 290x when overclocked.

780Ti boost clock ran at 1219 core
R9 290 ran at 1200 core

will it do 1200mhz continually? I know the 290 I had could bench at 1200, but after 20 min or so in gaming would get heat soaked or something and throttle. Couldn't maintain 1000mhz even.

Gerard, first off nice to see another caper on here.

The 780 Ti Firestrike run, can you do another and post the results with a valid score?

It's for a few reasons.

Time measurement was skewered on the Ti run and can play a factor on the score.

Look at the physics score for each run. Your cpu somehow lost 1600 points between the 2 runs.

You also have virtually no overclock on the 780 Ti memory. Try adding 250 to the memory.

Here's a run from OCN's own Firestrike thread.

http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/2057221
http://www.overclock.net/t/1406832/single-gpu-firestrike-top-30/790#post_21482820

Core is 1205 and memory 1900 mhz. 13755 graphics score.

Also, are you sure the clock for the Ti is right? If you look at the result I linked, he's getting 65 mhz of boost over what Firestrike is recording which is average. If you look at yours compared to what Firestrike reports, you're getting an extra 143 mhz which is well over average.

I gotta say the Kingpin 780ti is the ultimate card at stock, but even better for Overclocking. It's just dominating all the benchmarks right now.

Well said mcg ...
The card is probably throttling a lot with almost no memory OC at all.

This is a recent HardOCP MSI 290X Gaming benchmark including an overclocked 780 Ti.
That 780 Ti is not even the best clocker, reaches at max 1163 MHz Boost.The R9 290X is @ 1130 MHz which is about equal or give or take a single fps or two when compared to a 290 non X @ 1200 MHz.
(Based on what people got here when first they unlocked their 290s. It shows the 290X is about 5% better clock for clock)

http://hardocp.com/article/2014/03/31/msi_radeon_r9_290x_gaming_4g_video_card_review/1#.Uzpk6fmSx8E

It shows the 780 Ti has the edge for the most part and sometimes by a good margin. Much better than these synthetic benchmarks IMO.

not many 290(X) can run those kinda clocks 7/24 but the 780(Ti) can. Here is a King that can run it daily . . .





I highly doubt mine can . . .



But it is not all about just fps . . . smoothness is key to games.
