nVidia GTX780Ti Review

3D Mark 11

At stock the P score of the two heavy hitters are almost inseparable, but the GTX780Ti is nearly 500 points better in the Extreme preset. Overclocking, which is free performance remember, moves the GTX780Ti into an entirely new sphere of excellence, improving by 2000 points in the P-Score and 1500 points in the Extreme preset. To put that in perspective, that's 500 points better than a GTX690!

Hot on the heels of the Radeon R9 290X, nVidia have beefed up their GTX780.

Very nice, super speed, but far too expensive. In australia they will be $850+. Ill get 2! 290's and put them under water for $1000. Much faster, looks better, quieter and less heat for not much more money. An easy choice. I was waiting until the 290x/290 and 780ti came out to decide and now the choice is easy. For anyone on water you would be crazy to pay $850 for one of these when a 290x on water is just as fast, quieter and cheaper for $250 less.

For those not on water the choice is much harder for sure! For single GPU a 780ti makes sense, but dual 290's on stock fan profiles are a serious contender.

Cheers mate!

it truly is an amazing card, and for anyone wanting to spend that kind of money for whatever reason its awesome!!

haven't watched the video yet, but ill save that for later, from what ive read, its not worth getting rid of my 780 classy for this, as my classy overclocks quite well, and isnt far off the FPS the Ti produces!

I'll take 2 please, Bob Lol, I wish.

I want to see what can be done with this card with overvolting! If it overclocks that well by just upping the power limit slider, then upping the volts must give even better results.

I do feel sorry for all the people that bought the Titan though, everything from the 780, 290/x and now the 780 Ti is just a slap in the face to the people that spent 800 on it.

I guess those who have the Titan have deep pockets though so they won't be bothered. Has anybody on this forum got a Titan? I don't think there is..?

I'm crapping bricks. It's 2am... can't sleep. For an AMD fanboy I really hate AMD and love NVIDIA right now.

Great review Tom. You've ruined life for me but none the less good review sir!

Being in aussie land i'm obviously new here but.....

I have a titanx2, but its not used for gaming in anyway, they also heavily hard modded. The 6gb of ram is put to good use. Am i annoyed its (gaming) performance is bested by the new crop of cards? Not really.

Ive used both nvidia and amd products at the high end. All my rigs are under water (or more) though so reference coolers/heat/noise are completely irrelevant to me.

yea, so much for the "nvidia won't have a reply till q4 2014 because they don't have anything" theory, took them one week. rekt.
i wonder what AMD's reply will be, a 290x running at 150c because "that's what it's supposed to run at" or a 295xXx? even aftermarket coolers and patches won't make up that gap. i hope they at least have something, else the price won't go down anytime soon. kinda doubt that though considering how long it took them to have a reply for the 780, now maxwell cannot release before q4 2014, else it looks dull for AMD. but i don't think nvidia will kick them out, wouldn't do them any good either.
i don't think anyone will be pissed off about you saying that the 780ti made the titan look pathetic, the titan has always been pointless to buy, but at least it ends the god damn 290x = titan for less money argument.
this was definitely stronger than anything i expected, i thought it would slightly beat the 290x, but in heaven this even beat 7970 royal ace CF which is just insane, too bad i already got a 770, but it's not like the 780ti is currently in my budget anyways.

A good friend of mine has a 290x on water at 1.35hz @ 55deg spanking the pants off the 780ti by around 15%. Of course you have to factor in the watercooling costs but for those of use on watercooling already you can get a 290x and a block for less than a 780ti.

Id argue the lower temps+ better looks + lower noise + cheaper/similar price makes a 290x a very attractive proposition.

On air with reference the 780ti is awesome, but at this price many will be watercooling imo. Which makes the 290/290x or cf a better idea imo

spanking the stock clocks or the overclocked 780ti? also the 780ti hasn't been under water yet, so i think that the 780ti could spank the 290x quite badly there as well. if you are right though, that could mean that the prices of the 780ti would drop, which would be amazing.
are the better looks about the block or the stock cooler? because that stock cooler of the 290x looks cheap as shit and with a waterblock + backplate they'll pretty much look the same.
so under water the 780ti will look the same, be just as quiet, probably even be a bit cooler and most likely bash the 290x to hell, idk the exact price difference though, as TTL said, it's all about what you are willing to pay, but tbh 100 quid don't make a lot of a difference in a fully watercooled rig.
don't think that the 290x is an equivalent to the 780ti at the moment, it's competing with the 780.

Can we stop with all childish "Nvidia this and AMD that" BS FFS?
I'm so sick of everywhere I look people making stupid comments about Nvidia vs AMD. Please go to 4chan if this is the kind way you want to talk about things.

Stop looking at as one manufacturer VS the other and look at it as which card is best for YOU and is best for your money.

Some people will be happy with the 290/x and the noise wont bother them, some people will be happier with 780 Ti. Either way what ever card you go with you have great performance, all that matters is which one you can afford and which one is best for you regardless of who makes it.

Stay with 780 SLI *clocked at 1202/3402* or swap out for 780 Ti SLI, worth the hassle and money ?

that kinda defies the point of a forum. i don't care which card you will buy, i don't care if you don't like me buying some card, what i care about is a healthy competition which doesn't exist atm in my opinion. if this is all just gonna be a "wooooow, luk a gpu, such performance, interesting, good looks, many love" comment section forbidding any kind of discussion then what's the point of talking. nobody forces you to join the discussion, as long as nobody loses their temper i see no problem with people having opinions and sharing them.

nah, 780s in SLi will do you more than well enough till maxwell and probably even longer.

Of course thats an excellent point. A water 780ti may indeed squeeze more out the gk110, however as many have pointed out the stock cooler is so good how much more is there to give?

Ill agree the stock cooler of the 290x is useless, but on water that does not matter. A water 290x v a water 780 ti im willing to bet will be trading blows, with the 290x significantly cheaper.

The age old thing will happen. If you have unlimited budget, 2 780ti's on water will give the ultimate performance, while 2 290x's on water will give 95% of the performance with the same temps and noise but at 25% or more cheaper.

Then its upto the user to decide.

Tom, your quote ended on nvidia's UK fb page, and I agree with you that we should all go and get one

i'm kinda looking in Kaapstad's direction to make that comparison happen
not sure if they'd be trading blows though, on air the differences are insane, i don't know how much the water can help there. i do agree that temps aren't going to make a lot of a difference with the 780ti though, but you got to consider that the 780ti hasn't been overvolted yet, it could very well be possible to get a stable 1300mhz out of it, of course it's up to the buyer to see if it's worth the money.
so was the 15% difference to stock clocks or the oc'd 780ti?

Finally a card worthy of the Witcher 2 maxed at 2560x1600, even if it wasn't tested, but great review as always.

it really is a shame that TTL doesn't use witcher 2, it's a gorgeous game and a very demanding one, but i guess only few people can relate to it.

Ive always wondered why ttl does not put the cards under water before other sites. The 290x blocks have been out for a while now.

Im not saying you like one or the other more, just an observation.

07-11-2013, 13:08:02

You see AMD, this is what happens when you know how to design a cooler. We all know what AMD are going to do now though, they're going to lower the price of the 290x (hopefully let the aftermarket coolers appear as well, I want a 290x toxic edition). If someone(artic etc) releases a cooler designed for the 290x and that option is cheaper/around the same price I'd like to see a comparison.

probably because it is a lot of work, but i am sure that some sort of a comparison is coming up.

780 ti is the better card, but the 290x is 100 cheaper.

TBH that's the exact way business works... you pay more if you want something better I personally don't think it's fair to compare the two...

Thanks for all your hard work Tom.

So nVidia have the crown again, 2013 turned out to be a very interesting year for GPU competition. Savour it, because new true next-gen releases aren't going to be coming as quick from now on.

Great Graphics Card no doubt, although I'm left wondering what the 290X would do if the cooler wasn't holding it back. Maybe good custom coolers would see it compete more effectively and force nVidia to drop the price of the 780ti?

Sadly though even while I can't deny I'd like a 780ti and even though I could afford it, I can't justify it given my gaming resolution. I reckon a R9 290, or maybe a 780 would be the better buy for me. Although I'm thinking I might hold on to my 7950 for another while, don't really need to upgrade yet.

yep fair call there.

I still think under water a 290x will be a better bet though. Time will tell

Get another 7950 if you feel the need for more grunt. They're cheap and considering two 7870xts are as fast as a 780 it seems like a logical idea to me.

I've never even considered going for a multi-gpu setup, given the issues they can present (micro-stutter etc.), but it'd be interesting to at least try one.

You've sown the seeds of more temptation. Damn You!

hey tom i want to bring this to your atention.

EK Water Blocks said this;

ATTENTION ATTENTION! EK-FC Titan (SE) water blocks are not compatible with the latest reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics card. Read more: http://bit.ly/17GOKjg

in your YouTube video you say; the TI can fit the water block from the titan.
but ekwb said; it not compatible.

Get a card based on what it delivers, not based on which camp you like best.

Yup, I have a Titan. But don't worry about me too much, I was quite aware that the
Titan was never worth the money (at least IMO) unless you needed (and I actually
mean need, not want) one absolutely right when it came out. I bought it because
I wanted one and could afford it, and I was never going to use it for gaming, it's going
to be put to use for computing.

TBH I haven't played any games in more than a year IIRC, just don't care too much
about it at the moment. More interested in coding and building. Ever since switching
to Linux I haven't gamed on a PC (which was what, seven years ago or so?), the
few games I have played were on my PS3 (nope, I do not believe it's superior
hardware to a PC, nor do I believe my 1080p TV is "bigger" than my 1920x1200,
but my little console has served me quite well for the past few years; the few titles
I have bought and enjoyed were PS3 exclusives anyway, so I'm pretty alright with
that investment). Having said that, if I ever get the money for some really epic
multi-screen setup things might look very different again.


Anyway, ontopic: One thing I must say is that the name 780 Ti is utterly
stupid IMO. Call it what it is, a Titan Ultra or something like that. Seriously
Nvidia, what have your PR guys been smoking? It still is a pretty epic card, of
course.

i like 780ti a heck of a lot better than titan ultra, that just sounds like some item stolen from the power rangers.
i really wonder what happens to the titan now. 500$? cancelled?

Yeah, now that I think about it, Titan was never really a very good name to begin
with. But it has proven very marketable, so there's that. Still, even if Titan UIltra is
bad, I still think 780 Ti doesn't make much sense. I would have preferred numerical
names through the entire product line anyway (so, Titan => 785, 780 Ti => 785 Ti
maybe?). Ah well, I'm certainly never going into marketing, that's for sure.

There is nothing wrong with a console, they have some great exclusives and it's nice to just chillax with a simple controller, but if any console fanboys start saying that the Xbox One will out do a high-end gaming PC or something...slap them!

I don't know what they say though, I keep away from console discussions because I get so bored of seeing 14 year olds arguing over whats best.

Edit: And I might buy Ghosts today, but the question is...on PC or PS3? PC for graphics, PS3 for easy chillax gaming?

It looks the same as the console version, it is lagging like crazy for some people and stuttering.

It's also bringing high end pc's to there knees as well, my 680's only managed to keep the game averaging around 80fps.

If you played Black Op's 2 on the PC, then you will probably be aware of the Lag Comp, where your killed after getting round a corner or those with a higher ping killing you before you see them etc.

The game is bugged to high hell.




I really wouldn't recommend buying this game on the pc at the moment, as it's a disaster.

I only had BLOPS 2 on PS3, last I had on PC was MW3 and it lagged like crazy on my old 4870.

Is the game worth buying, any good? Wow you can see it stutter in that video too. That's annoying.

I would wait if I was you till a few patches have been released.

There is also a strong suspicion by me and a few others that the game is using the old IWnet system, instead of the Dedicated Servers they said it would use.

I will see later on today if the stutter goes away when my 780Ti's arrive but if it doesn't and it still cannot hold, a solid 91fps which is the cap then it will clearly show how bad the coding is in the game.

You can fix the stutter in Ghosts by changing the priority level in task manager to normal. It's set to high as default for some reason, FRAPS and other overlayers cause crashing and or stuttering as well.

I bought Ghosts for the Single player, can't stand the CoD MP, but each to their own After playing BF4's SP, Ghost's SP seems rather dull. Just my opinion though, some people might like it. Graphically though, it does look rather good at times, indoor sections more than outside ones anyway.

I'll give it a miss for now then, I'll probably get bored of the game quite quick, I played Black Ops 2 a fair bit but didn't think much to the game. (Only other game was BF3 which I played to death so just put up with CoD).

Let us know how the Ti's perform in it though if you will.

Sorry Tom, will keep it on topic.

I need to decide whether I am going to watercool my 2 cards or not in March when I hopefully get my bonus, I just really like the looks of those coolers and may even have to invest in one of those EVGA SLI connectors.

Simply didn't expect the overclock, impressed tbh.

Pricing in Estonia is strange but makes a very simple choice!

I have a titanx2, but its not used for gaming in anyway, they also heavily hard modded. The 6gb of ram is put to good use. Am i annoyed its (gaming) performance is bested by the new crop of cards? Not really.

Ive used both nvidia and amd products at the high end. All my rigs are under water (or more) though so reference coolers/heat/noise are completely irrelevant to me.
Do you use its double precision features?

Oh thank you so much for reminding me of that. Since I do computing on my Titan
(or I will, once my PC is finally up and running ), the Titan's double precision
capability might actually still make it much more useful to me than a 780 Ti (this
is going off of Google results telling me the 780 Ti does not have the Titan's DP prowess).
Woohoo!

There is about 3 people on the internet who appreciate that feature lol

Haha, yeah it might turn out to be quite the challenge finding something which
actually makes use of that feature (or those 6 GB of VRAM, leaving out high-res
gaming) and is of use to me. But hey, we wouldn't want things to get boring now,
would we?

It's probably shaped by the demand on the market. Since 780Ti is so fresh and will be on sale in the end of next week, I assume the price policy is in baby pants and the numbers will pop up eventually.

I've found more and more that if I want a relaxing evening without hassle then I'll play something on the console, PC gaming is great but is also just too frustrating, Have you updated your drivers, Is your 2 grand computer fast enough to play a game that looks and plays exactly the same on a console that cost 300 etc etc...

Never have driver issues here... and if you think it looks exactly the same you need your eyes testing dude.

@tinytomlogan Any chance you would post you final overclock settings including voltages etc? I get it's a silicon lottery but it's still interesting to see what certain cards can achieve.

Just an exaggeration
But I do wish sometimes devs could optimize the games to the hardware a little bit more like consoles, I know it will never truly happen as there are a million different hardware combos unlike consoles but I can dream
