Overclocking

Demonstrating how cautious ASUS had overclocked the card out of the box, we hit the giddy heights of 1100MHz on the Kepler Core. Couple that to an additional 200MHz from the GDDR5 and, manually at least, the GTX780Ti DCUII lives up to that OC suffix.

Temperatures

Naturally the nVidia GPU Boost 2.0 always pushes the card to the maximum thermal threshold so it is to the minimum temperature that the most intriguing insights come, and the DirectCU II continues its great work in a variety of applications by slipping beneath the 30°C minimum.

I still stick by my belief that asus are becoming lazy in terms of GPUs. The 290/290x is crap as far as 290s go for example. I don't know if I have too high an expectation from asus but I was expecting more.Quote

I think you are, can only do as much as the core will allow. Short of making a new GPU they couldnt have done any more to try and polish the 290 & 290X

This is a great card but the stock clocks are lower than the mental fast ones we have tested and the silicone lottery was not shining in our favor with the Ti

Never the less its still cheaper than the £600+ ones that we have looked at and still a mental fast card.....Quote
