NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Launches on 23rd May – GeForce GTX 770 Scheduled for May 30th

Fudzilla has got some exclusive information on the upcoming GeForce GTX 780 from NVIDIA, according to them the latest flagship graphic card launches on May 23rd followed by the GeForce GTX 770 on May 30th.

It was already revealed a few weeks back that NVIDIA was about to launch their GeForce 700 series in Mid-May and now we have the exact launch dates for both new GPUs. The previous information also stated that the GeForce GTX 760 Ti would also be included for the Q2 launch lineup but instead launching in May, the GTX 760 Ti would be announced during Computex 2013.

Time to upgrade from a GTX 560 Ti. :D
NYC_Gamer  +   693d ago
I agree,i'll be kicking the 570 out of my rig.
Hydrolex  +   693d ago
You guys think ill be fine with gtx 670 sli ?
ABizzel1  +   693d ago
Don't waste you money on the 700 series. You're better off getting a GTX 670 since it should be getting a price drop with the 700 series announcement.

On top of that the 700 series seems to be a rebranding of the 600 series, using Titan as the core of each GPU (weaker Titans).

Same goes for AMD's 8000 series. Get the 7000 series for less, unless you you must have a 10% increase in performance and a slight reduction in energy consumption.

I'll be waiting for 800 series, possibly even 900. I'm digging my EVGA 670 FTW right now.

@Mr Tretton I'm also lovin my 670ftw edition, things a beast

Dammit I just got a 680 like 3 days ago. is this a tick or a tock??

either way. I would like to announce that I didn't buy it out of impulse It was necessary as my old 6970 crapped out on me but it was my fault I removed the heat pads that went to the heatsink from the ram chips and replaced with thermal paste. didn't notice that contact wasn't there till my pc started shutting off a few days ago (after a year).

otherwise I would've had it well into 2015-16.

but.. it turned out all it needed was new pads and a new application of thermal paste. SO... Now I have a 6970 and a GTX680.

meaning
1 Kept original box all packaging driver cds etc. So its perfect to sell. :)

2 Cragslist 6970 $200

3 deduct $200 from the 680 purchase.

4 Profit from upgrade for a fraction of the price of the buy-in. Im good till 2018 :)for roughly $250 bucks.

im just worried I missed the window for a 780 if its way faster or something.

so as I said is this a tick or a tock?

How well/long do you guys think a GTX 660 will hold up?
GoldPunch-TR  +   693d ago
same for my 6950 too.
Kurylo3d  +   693d ago
funny thing is ive been surviving with a gtx260 this entire time and have had no problem. These new cards are really just for enthusiasts at this point until developers start making stuff with them significantly in mind lol.
Dude420  +   693d ago
Yeah well, I'd say the GTX 260 is equivalent to an HD 5770. I went from an HD 5770 to a GTX 560 Ti and the difference in performance and graphics were night and day, especially in 1080p.

But in the end it depends on the person, I sold my 5770 to my brother for $60 and he's been happy with it for 2 years. But he too, said to me he'll upgrade his card soon.

I'm going to wait until NVidia's and AMD's new GPUs arrive, I'm thinking I'll upgrade maybe next year.

xPhearR3dx  +   693d ago
It says in the article....
FragMnTagM  +   693d ago
$699-759

As soon as Rome TW 2 comes out it's build a new PC day...and maybe take a few days of work too).
ijust2good  +   693d ago
So a useless upgrade that gives the PC game-geeks orgasm. So much for Maxwell.
natturk  +   693d ago
This line is a refresh on the 600 series with some variations so no this is not maxwell.
#5.1 (Edited 693d ago ) | Agree(6) | Disagree(1) | Report | Reply
Kurylo3d  +   693d ago
i wouldnt say useless. If they want 100 fps at ultra resolution.. with every graphics setting maxed out... that is certainly a use. Im still cool with my gtx260 until i cant get 30 fps at 1900x1200 resolution with most of the settings on max for most games.

plus... u really sound angry that pc people want the best possible pc. and your chatting on a video game website and u dont consider yourself a geek? lol man your a hater... get over urself.

Its mentioned that the GeForce 700 series would be based on a Kepler refresh.

GeForce Maxwell GPUs won't arrive until 2014 as officially announced by NVIDIA.
ijust2good  +   693d ago
So entire 700 series is using over a year old kepler architecture. Not a huge leap then...The high end of 700 series is worse than titan.
Letros  +   692d ago
Titan is the fastest GPU ever made, why would you expect the 780 to beat it, however it'll come close.

HD7850 time :) There's still no card with a better price/performance ratio.
Kurylo3d  +   693d ago
ill always take nvidia over ati. Physx for one is always a great reason, but as a developer the gpu helps do a lot of tasks faster by turning my gpu into a 500 core processor lol.
RedDeadLB  +   693d ago
@ Kurylo3d

I have a GTX460 currently and I'll definitely miss Physx, but the 7850 is overall a better buy for me than the 650Ti Boost I originally wanted to buy because it's a better overclocker and will therefore last longer, it's cheaper, less power consuming, cooler, faster for the same amount of money and more future proof for me because I have a CFX MBO which will allow me to simply pop in another card when one becomes too slow. I could set up hybrid Physx for a little while before I finally sell my 460, I'm a sucker for Batman AA and AC and Physx just adds a new level of depth, but then again so does DX11 which isn't smooth with the 460 :)
ninjahunter  +   693d ago
I think the 7970 is currently on sale for a MUCH MUCH MUCH better deal... Hmm....
IDK, buying a graphics card really depends on what your looking for. ATI Generally gives you the most performance for the buck and does better with overclocking. But Nvidia has better driver support and some AA features and SSAO support that ATI doesnt.
RedDeadLB  +   693d ago
@ninjahunter

I don't have the money for a 7870, let alone a 7970. The best I can do is the 7850. Nvidia driver support has been iffy lately (at least for my 460 - I get artifacts sometimes in BF3 like textures getting corrupt and such things), Nvidia has HBAO, AMD has HDAO and they've fixed up their drivers (at least for single cards) compared to before when I had a HD4850.
Dude420  +   693d ago
Plus AMD's game promo makes buying those GPUs far more attractive than NVidia's offering.

Bioshock Infinite, Tomb Raider/Crysis 3 and FC3: Blood Dragon vs. $75 worth of stuff in Free to play games? Come on...
josephayal  +   693d ago
very powerful card, def the perfect card for the Xbox 720

How is a $700 card that requires cooling from a desktop tower perfect for a slim console, which all use laptop parts?

You sir are either trolling or are just plain ignorant about pc components.
aLiEnViSiToR  +   692d ago
I think ill stick with my GTX 560 Ti 'till GTX 860 Ti :]
hellvaguy  +   692d ago
So 5 years from now roughly?

800 series isn't even releasing for another 1-2 years. Then your obviously not going to get it in the first year when it costs over $1,000 and then will have to wait another year for the ti edition. And then 1 more year after that for it to be priced under $500.
Plagasx  +   692d ago
Damn, I wonder if I should get another 680 for SLI or a 780...
Truehellfire  +   692d ago
I really hope they don't price the 780 too high. I was for sure going to grab it if they released it at the $500-$600 range like initially reported. ~$800 is just too much. Why would I spend close to $800 on a 780 when I could by two 770's for roughly the same rumored price? That wouldn't make any sense.
Yukicore  +   692d ago
Damn, a big price and performance jump from GTX 770 and GTX 780. This is a nice trick to get more people to buy 780, but damn is it not economical. I recently bought a new rig with 7950 (950mhz aftermarket) for about 470$.

500$ is the amount I would be willing to spend for a Graphics card, Nvidia is making you throw an extra 200$, as I said smart move, but really bad one in economical perspective.
SITH  +   692d ago
I will not be upgrading for a long time.
