New Nvidia series in May and hopefully Intel's Haswell in June. Summer upgrade, here I come!

Pain_Killer1190d ago

Planning a similar build. It came as a surprise though that NVIDIA is launching their cards earlier than rival AMD.

Well more competition is good for us consumers.

ZidaneNL1190d ago

Yeah, I'm rather surprised by it. Then again, it was to be expected, since the GK110 core has been in development for quite a while now. I'm hoping for a huge jump in performance at a lower price.

This great news cant wait for the launch.

Tr10wn1190d ago

i was about to buy a 600 series since my friend build a PC last week and i was helping him thank god i waited that 760 Ti will be equally or better than a 670.

Wondering what's benchmark's are gonna be like with the 780. Will this be better than the Titan?

SlapHappyJesus1190d ago

Not even close.
Just read the article.

This should potentially fall a little ahead of a GTX680.

Haha. Just after posting this comment I read the article, and it seems like the Titan will still be ahead. I'm surprised actually. I thought the Titan was going to be one of those gap cards before the real flagship comes out (780), guess I was wrong. But saying that the 780 is "Not even close" would be wrong imo. Same number of transistors. Just that the Titan has 192 more stream processors and 8 more ROPs. Albeit the Titan outputs almost 4.5 TFLOPS whereas the 780 is around 3.9 TFLOPS. Still, the 780's no pushover.

Edit: The 780 is quite a bit more powerful than the 680.

780 will most likely be 10-20% more powerful than the 680 with it's main improvements going towards power usage. I doubt they would want to dethrone the Titan with a series card after only 3 months.

It's redundant to go off specs alone.

FlyingFoxy1190d ago (Edited 1190d ago )

Should be as good as Titan at least, Nvidia know its a hugely overpriced card for the performance you get.

Any games that run poorly on a high end card will also on the Titan so its a waste, thats what i hate about those cards priced so high. Can't even run all games 60+fps at 1080p for that cost, what a joke.

Titan is pretty much a Mars card all over again, a bit better than high end but costs a lot more and will drop in price like a rock when proper next series comes.

2 7870's stomp all over Titan for cheaper, but multicard setups all have micro stutter. if AMD fixed it completely that would be great, but aint gonna happen.

Tundra1190d ago

It won't be as good as the Titan. It's on the same core, yes, but Nvidia will likely laser off or disable shader blocks and then sell it at a lower price. Nvidia's refreshes are normally 10%~20% performance increases from previous gen.

LAWSON721190d ago

I am still getting another 7950 instead.

DomceM1190d ago

i got a gtx 480 and still have no plans to upgrade. this card is serving me pretty well.

MooseWI1190d ago

Glad to hear that, I hope my 670 lasts me a little bit at least..

LAWSON721190d ago

If it is a 4gb version it should easily last a while but i think 2gb vram maybe not enough to last that long.

WUTCHUGUNNADO1190d ago

2GBs is fine. It's not really the standard yet. PC is heading towards super high resolutions/multimonitor/3D which warrant that much memory while 2GBs is more than adequate for a single monitor at 1080p. The only sacrifice you'll have to make would be dealing with lower res textures which won't really be that low res heading into the future along with maybe not being able to use the more memory hungry AA models.

580 here! Must say, this old work horse has served me well, so well in fact, that I will probably hold off until Maxwell comes out.
