What about power consumption and noise?

avatar

John Pombrio

Mine is dead quiet even when running AIDA's GPU stress test. I even opened up the case to see if I could hear it but the case fans were swamping the noise level and I have QUIET case fans. No worries there, mate.
As for power, my Cooler Master GT 750 is plenty.

It's TDP is just less than a Titan at 230w, and it had our meter pegged at around 375w or so under load. Noise was very good, seemed really quiet even when fully stressed. All the Nvidia cards are relatively quiet now.

MPC, I think it's time you pulled a 4chan and required some form of authorization for every post on here. This spam is getting pretty atrocious.

joshnorem

We're trying to stop it but it's a never-ending battle. We see them on other site's comments too. It's like a plague.

avatar

AFDozerman

Yeah, I've noticed them other places, too. Do they appear to be using a VPN to mask their IP, or is this a botnet?

I think I'll stick with my dual GTX 680's for a little while longer.

Nah, these benchmark results aren't the least bit skewed considering the Radeon is up against Nvidia's latest and greatest using a beta driver. The story of AMD's entire life. Just sayin...

i'll wait for nvidia's Maxwell architecture, thank you.

I was surprised that the benchmarks were that much higher than the 680. Just ordered one. NewEgg has a superclocked EVGA GTX780 (941 GHz core clock) IN STOCK for $662 total which I jumped on. I have their superclocked GTX680 and it never hiccuped on me once.

avatar

John Pombrio

The EVGA clocks out at almost exactly what they are advertising and my bench marks are right in line with the 35%+ bump in speed over my GTX680. As usual, the o/c only adds a few frames per second to a game but what the hell...

I wish I had your money.

2 hours after ordering it and 8 hours after the announcement, the EVGA card is out of stock. Gotta be quick these days.

I went with the Evga reference design. I'm probably sacrificing overclockability, but I really like how the stock cooler looks!

Nah, your o/c ability will be exactly the same as mine with the superclocked board. All they do is set the firmware to default to a higher clock. You will be able to do exactly the same as the hardware is identical. I just like plug and play o/c so I don't have to fool with it after reinstalling Windows (which I do way too often).

Crazycanukk

i was going to wait..

but after seeing the benchmarks and hearing some feedback...I had a weak moment and hit the buy button.

Went with the EVGA superclocked as well from Tigerdirect.ca

avatar

redfoot12

I wonder if MPC will slot the 780 in as their new recommendation for single GPU over Titan.

avatar

joshnorem

We probably will. For gaming it is easily the best fps/dollar ratio available.

avatar

drainbread

But what about folding...

avatar

lordfirefox

Early reports indicate it still sucks at OpenCL and doesn't pull any more or less hash rates than the Titan.

AMD is still king of the hash rates.

avatar

AFDozerman

Radeon still takes the cake on GPGPU.

avatar

Crazycanukk

Im actually impressed.

If you're running on a GTX 680 i wouldn't bother with this card. thats just MY opinion. But this does make a nice upgrade from a GTX580 and i would say even if you have GTX 580's in SLi it might be an upgrade path to consider.

I have 2 GTX 580's in sli and yes they are VERY capable but they also generate a crap load of heat and when heavy gaming draw enough power to run a small town and if you game a lot thats a significant amount of $$ to run those cards. I know with my 2 580's its a struggle to keep them cool in the summer. I have an Antec 1200 case..7 fans + a Huge one on the top..and my wires are all neatly tucked and tied for better airflow as well. Still fight to keep the top card just at 80c on the warm days. No the thermal paste is fine on the cards and No i will not spend more $$ for aftermarket cooling for the GPU's.

I am actually impressed with the benchmarks i saw on Anandtech.com ..they came in better than i had guessed they would. I'm not going to rush out day 1 they are in the stores and i will be watching more reviews, benchmarks and of course a few podcasts and user reviews after release..

but so far the GTX 780 is on my radar for an upgrade this year since i skipped the 600 series and went sli %80's instead.

+ i have uses for my old 580's and 2 other pc's i could rotate them into

ronmccord

I would prefer this quieter fan ramp up

Is it strange that I get a chub when I see pictures of this card?

Looking at those frame rates listed in the above article, it looks like games are catching back up with cards again. Frankly, I was surprised that frame rates were so low. Even at 1600p and 4AA, I wonder if these games now days just have shoddy texture mapping and lack of optimized code, yet developers never bother to clean up the mess. If it's a drivers issue, then 680 and 7970 owners are being left out in the cold since these cards have been released for quite some time now. I would think that even at 4AA, we should be hitting close to 40FPS on these cards.

If I bought a Titan I'd be pissed!

avatar

PowerGPU

why would u be pissed I am happy with my titan i wanted the fastest single solution card for my micro build and i got it, the titan out performs the 780 by %10 and this benchmark was done on the old drivers which the new drivers boost another %10 for metro. yea the titan cost 350 more but why would i be called powergpu i want the power dont care about price.

avatar

mortalrage

Some people are smart with there money. $350 for 10% performance increase..... not me. The oc version puts the performance neck to neck. People wonder why the price of cards keep going up and up, and people like you are the reason.

avatar

PowerGPU

Look man all i want is the fastest card period don't care about price and yes i buy stuff at launch and pay a premium that's what makes me a enthusiast. and yes a oc version will be close then i will just oc my titan and call it a day. people like me r no the reason cards go up I have been buying gpu's since the year 2000 and cards have been at 800+ one example i remember when i bought x3 8800 ultra's each cost me $869 just to run crysis and there is no way to end this debate all it comes down to is my wallet vs ur wallet.

avatar

mortalrage

Hey, I'm not hating. I am glad you got what you want. Just like you I use to be a enthusiast, till the price has gone too far for me. I'm glad your happy. Back to what I was saying. I would be pissed if I bought a titan.

I'm not sure I understand what merits the change from the 600 series to the 700. The change from 500 to 600 signified the transition from Fermi to Kepler right? Any thoughts are welcome.

avatar

PowerGPU

remember that the 680 was there mid-rang card like I said when i did my videos on the 680's. thats why they r re branding the gtx 770 becuz its a mid rang card.

avatar

borkbork

It's mainly just a re-branding. The 780 is the only truly "new" card in the line. The rest are basically 600 series cards with minor performance tweaks. The 770 is the old 680, 760 the 670, 750 the 660, etc.

avatar

joshnorem

There is never a huge change from one series to the next. This is Kepler 2.0 so if you have a 600 series card you are better off getting a second card or just waiting for next year's new micro-architecture.

avatar

akrazyassho

Although it seems okay, the card doesn't peak my interests. How about those 3Gb of video ram? Are you serious, I love to load games that support it, nicer video memory intensive textures. AMD has done the 4Gb thing on its better cards for the past two years. Coming from SLi 4Gb 670's this just doesn't attract me at all, looks like I'm skipping the 700 series.

avatar

PlayItOnPC

Dude, chill. Card manufacturers ALWAYS make versions with larger amounts of memory, and quite frankly, I don't know what games you're playing that use more than 3 GB of VRAM. Maybe stuff with HD texture mods, sure, but pretty much every stock game should run just fine on 3 GB.

avatar

Refuge88

For a single monitor 3gb is overkill, but if he is running 3/4, Then you definately want that 4gb.

You guys speak of this new amazing GTX780 as if it was a STEAL!

I'm the owner of a single gtx680, and i honestly feel a bit ripped off at this point.
Following the gtx280, and 580 architectures, the 680 was basically the 660ti of the next gen, not a true successor to the 580 in terms of it's architecture. So we paid more for less.

Now we have $1000 dollar Titans, and a few months later $650 dollar gtx780's
The price just keeps on goin up doesn't Nvidia..You're the best!

So it looks like my income bracket has been downgraded to the midrange of modern video cards in 2013. Maybe in 2-3 years instead of being able to purchase a gtx980 for $800 bucks, i'll only be able to afford the Gtx950 Ti for $400

While the gtx780 looks like a damned fine card, but for $650.00 fucking dollars, for a slight to moderate increase in performance? No thank you.
I'd just like to throw out a hearty Fuck You to Nvidia for your nifty new(screw you to the wall)pricing agenda.

Best regards!

VIDEO CARD PRICES HAVE BEEN UP AND DOWN NOTHING NEW.

praetor_alpha

I'm the owner of a single gtx680, and I don't give a rat's ass about the 780 or Titan. I plunked down $500 for a 680 last July (up from a GTX 285) and it's been worth it. Likewise, you probably thought your 680 was worth whatever you bought it for whenever you bought it; otherwise, why did you buy it?

If you are angry about having to pay 20% more for the next flagship card, maybe you should wait a few months and miss out on paying the early adopter tax.

avatar

dgrmouse

Right on, Sempai. This is the card that should've been released as the 680GTX at the $500-$600 mark, with the other cards in the 600 series all being bumped down a notch. Your reasoning about having to move down in tiers while keeping the same price point also seems solid. Things aren't any better in the AMD camp, and with discrete graphics soon to become "good enough", many users might never again see a compelling bang-for-the-buck option.

avatar

PlayItOnPC

WHOA, calm down man. The 780 is a FLAGSHIP card that is ~30% faster than the 680- I would call that a bit better than a "moderate" increase in performance. The typical increase from generation to generation is usually only 10% to 15%.
If the rumors prove to be true, then the 770 will be what you would expect the 780 to be- a $500 card based off the GK104 (the GPU in the 680), which will be the typical 10% to 15% faster. Nvidia just knew that they would need to make *something* in between the Titan and the rest of the GTX catds, and figured they would do that with the 780.

avatar

Sempai

Thanks, i'm glad i could get an official response from an Nvidia employee on the goings on of their persistent idiocy.

avatar

joshnorem

It's a steal in the sense that you get very close to the Titan for quite a bit less money.

avatar

wolfing

I wonder if my price range ($200ish) has been affected. I've always been able to buy 'good enough' cards for that price, since I'm not addicted to FPS numbers, I've always been fine with playing my games at 30+ FPS with full screen anti-aliasing (2X or 4X, I don't need more) for the newest games for 2-3 years after purchase, which is all I need. My latest was a $165 GTX 560 18 months ago that's still going strong.

I have been building a computer based on the best bang for the buck article, and I have had my eye on a Gigabyte GTX 660 - 2GB OC edition. Since the announcement of the 780, and the rest of the 700 series, the price for the 660 has started downwards. It has dropped from about $230 to $210 at four places I have been keeping an eye on. I expect the price to drop even more as they make space on the shelves for the next generation. YA!

When you watch a movie you are only seeing 24 frames per second, while most traditional television shows are in 30 frames per second. Why the need for 60 fps, or even 120 fps? I am sure it makes for a smoother picture, yet if I can't see a difference then why would I want to pay for it? And for the games I am currently playing, and in the near future, the GTX 660 is just right for me.

Don't get me wrong, I dream, and dream big, just that my wallet won't permit it. I would love to have four Titans in a case, with 64GB RAM, and 7 x 3TB HDDs in a RAID configuration, with a 512GB SSD to help boot it all. And lets not forget a dual CPU motherboard, with two 8 core CPUs to help power it. All attached to a nice 7 foot 4K HD display, and feeding into a 7.1 channel home theater system. I do like to DREAM.
