That seems harsh especially since a 780 competes with an RX 480...

I'd say 1.8-2 x $70 is a fair price. $70 get's you an RX 550 (thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif), $100 gets you a RX 560 (still slower than a 780), finally you arrive at a RX 570 for $190 and that is around 8-10% slower than a RX 480. So as you can see even with a GTX 780 @ $140 used, it is a great deal especially when compared to your options today.

Saw a 6GB GTX 780 with a starting bid of $110, that is a much better deal than a RX 570 4GB for nearly $200, from a price to performance perspective.

While $250 isn't the best deal, 780's are definitely not worth $70. Overclock them and you are right up there with a 970, meaning competitive with an RX 480. Ever see an overvolted 780 under water?

As an owner of a 780, there's no way those BF4 numbers are even remotely close to real world use scenerios.

As an owner of an overclocked 780 I will have to disagree.

Yeah, when OC'd to 1300+ MHz my OG Titans are definitely faster than the 970 and can hang with the 980. I think I could still get $250 each for them, but they are definitely better than 780's all the way around.

I think $100 shipped is a fair price for a 780.

Probably $275 with the blocks and back plate. Compute and 6gb is the plus.

Don't have back plates unfortunately. :/

Overclocked to what?

Mine is crap and barely runs faster than stock boost (1137/3000) no matter what I do to the bios. 1080p medium settings is max to hold a decent framerate.

Also my bad, I was thinking BF1 not BF4...

1200MHz/6500MHz (can do 1250MHz/7000MHz but it gets too hot for me)

That's weird, I played the BF1 Beta heavily and had everything on Ultra, except I disabled all AA and knocked down Effects to High (CPU bound setting). Was getting 90+ fps consistently. In BF4 I easily average 150+ fps with everything on Ultra except AA disabled and again Effects on High. So, you sure we are talking about the same GTX 780. tongue.gif

The only gripe I have with my 780 is it is too VRAM limited so I have to constantly disable AA settings and continually limit the amount of mods I put on games. Otherwise it is quite the work horse. I really wish I could go back and invest in one of those 6GB 780's. If that was the case, I would probably hold onto it for another 2 years. Would even be in SLI right now.

The only reason why I'm looking to upgrade these days is because my brother needs a new card, and the 3GB of VRAM is too restrictive for my modding needs (Plan on playing Fallout 4 and doing another run of Skyrim).

I worked with OEMs for several projects. The schedule dates of AMD are infamous for being vague. Never on time, rarely on quality and the quantity is a joke to be honest. Whenever they give a release promise, take the last possible date they say and think of it as paperlaunch. Then add 1-2 month for potential availability.

Unless Nvidia, AMd doesn't produce up to 3 month before a launch. Team red always does it a few weeks before release and then they can hit their quotas. For a product that has been a barely attached prototype, this is not possible in H1/2017. We would have heard about this weeks ago. One of the reasons I am so pessimistic about Vega.
R9-390 was a heater. Coming from there everything is efficient. Most of the gains came from the node shrink. The rest of your text is rather optimistic, my friend. Nvidia had clear improvements from Kepler over Maxwell to Pascal, each visible and based one after another. Do your really think AMD is capable of doing this all in one go? The only thing brings Vega close to Pascal is HBM2 because it fights against GDDR5(X). It will be a complete repeat of Fiji vs Maxwell. At the start of 2018 GDDR6 is coming and the gap closes even more here.

Blind faith is poison when it concerns AMD. You will only find disappointment. i don't belive in it becoming the nexct wonderchip.

About Volta some Benches were released recently. There a big Volta GP100 was outclassing todays flagship GP100 in FP64 by 100% (!!!!!) That means TWICE AS FAST. Yes, this is a workstation class card and not a gaming one. Yet even if the gaming one is only 40-60% like I always carefully estimate, Vega will not e able to pull so much power out of its head. Parity with Pascal would be already good for ressoruce starved AMD. We hear Vega not even be close to 1080 Ti and fighting with 1080 instead.

Poor Volta indeed, because it will run circles around Vega .. all alone ... so sad. Yeah, and Vega and all the AMD fans like you will be sad too. Waiting for Navi then of course. rolleyes.gif
Yeah an r9 290x has 400% nearly over 980 on fp64. Nvidia had the money to make and sell us gaming gpus, amd continued to sell workstation cards with gaming drivers hence the power savings. I get the feeling you dont know what your talking about for the most part.

Yeah the 6GB on my OG Titans is the only reason I've been able to soldier on with them at 1440p the past 4 years. That and voltage control that lets me get to 1300MHz in SLI. GK110 amazingly still has enough juice in the tank to perform nicely even in 2017!
