Getting two graphics processing units (GPUs) on one video card is a time-honored tradition for enthusiast rigs. With this generation, AMD has gone with an integrated closed-loop liquid cooler (CLC) to keep its two R9 290X GPUs from getting crispy. Nvidia’s dual-GPU card has yet to make an entrance, but two 780 Ti’s linked together with SLI have roughly the same performance and price. If you’re prepared to spend about $1,500, these two options are natural competitors.
Looking back at the biggest feature stories of the past year
2013 was a big year for technology, specifically for the enthusiast PC market. We saw a bunch of new high-end graphics cards come out in addition to a new major CPU line from Intel and even a new, updated OS from Microsoft.
With the GeForce GTX 780 Ti, Nvidia has snatched the single-GPU performance crown back from the clutches of the recently launched Radeon R9 290X, and not just by a small margin either, but by a landslide. By dethroning the R9 290X Nvidia has also taken the GTX Titan to the woodshed as well, as the GTX 780 Ti is far and away the fastest single GPU we have ever tested. Read on to see how it fares against the R9 290X, and the former champ, the GTX Titan.
