NVIDIA GeForce 700 Series Launching in Mid-May – GeForce GTX 780 Gets GK110 Core

It has been reported by Brightsideofnews that NVIDIA would be launching their GeForce 700 series including the flagship GeForce GTX 780 as soon as May 2013. According to the information from their Asia based sources, the company is planning to launch three new GeForce 700 series SKUs which will be featuring refined version of the 28nm Kepler architecture.

New Nvidia series in May and hopefully Intel's Haswell in June. Summer upgrade, here I come!
Pain_Killer  +   444d 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.
ZidaneNL  +   444d 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.

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?
SlapHappyJesus  +   444d ago
Not even close.
Just read the article.

This should potentially fall a little ahead of a GTX680.
sourav93  +   444d ago
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.
FlyingFoxy  +   444d 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.

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.

I am still getting another 7950 instead.
DomceM  +   444d ago
i got a gtx 480 and still have no plans to upgrade. this card is serving me pretty well.
MooseWI  +   444d ago
Glad to hear that, I hope my 670 lasts me a little bit at least..
LAWSON72  +   444d 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.
WUTCHUGUNNADO  +   444d 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.
Gamerjunki3  +   444d ago
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.
NOOBKILLA  +   444d ago
All this GPU news is killing me! I'm now trying to decide between a 7990 Quadfire, GTX Titan 3-way sli, and GTX 780 4-way sli. I have all the other components for my new build except a GPU. I'm only gaming at 2560x1600 right now but I don't want to have to upgrade my GPU when those 4k monitors become affordable.
FlyingFoxy  +   444d ago
2560 res is max i'd go, even then you'll lose quite a bit of frame rate over 1080p.

1080p @ 120hz is the sweet spot, look at benchmarks of multi monitor setups and even with 2-3 gfx cards a lot of games stuggle and only hold 20-30fps which is poor and not smooth.

1080p will be best for speed and quality for a long time. if you want to keep at 60fps+ as often as possible anyway plus you won't get annoying micro stutter if you use just 1 high end card.
Hassassin  +   444d ago
I disagree, I think 1440p is much nicer than 1080p. But you're right the 60fps is paramount.
Tzunoy  +   444d ago
I am not impressed at all. If they release a powerful high end card that consumes under 100 watts then that's impressive.
nikrel  +   444d ago
I just built a new PC, bought a 660ti about 2months ago, i'm running vsync, max everything, dx 11, no noticeable frameloss.

When games become sluggish at max settings I'll upgrade.
bumnut  +   444d ago
You could always buy another 660 for a bargain price when the new cards release.

I have 2 x 570's and skipped the 6 series, if the 7 series is only 10 - 20% faster I might skip them too!
nikrel  +   444d ago
My second sli slot is not the same speed as my first sli slot will that matter?
Truehellfire  +   444d ago
@nikrel
It doesn't matter. It will still work, and with two 660ti's you will hardly notice a performance loss.
nikrel  +   444d ago
@truehellfire
Thanks for the info I'll wait for the inc price drop then grab a second.
Truehellfire  +   444d ago
Well, if the 780 releases at $500 Ill be buying it on day one. My 560ti's still play most games maxed out at 1080p/60fps, but the 1GB memory is not up to par in many games.
2pacalypsenow  +   444d ago
sweet now the 600 series will get cheaper for those who want to sli and get more horsepower :-)
kingduqc  +   444d ago
It's going to be a refresh so there won't be any huge performance boost.Somewhere in the lines of 10-15% max. Great for new bulders or people that need an upgrade but I'm waiting for the real deal (880)
Haules  +   443d ago
The new standard should be : 2560 by 1080p! and for the 2% out there : 3800 by 1600p
jeffgoldwin  +   443d ago
It will be the new standard, but just not in the near future due to the high cost. Plus 2560x1080 monitors have very slow refresh rates currently.
