Hopefully Maxwell will offer this level of performance at $300.
It will but I am worried nVIDIA will not reply back until and unless AMD trounces its cards...
I have GTX 670 Sli, so looks like I'm very close to 780ti performance wise right ?
Also, do you guys think I would see a huge difference if I upgrade to a high end Maxwell card when they come out ?
@Hydrolex, rumor says ARM coreless Maxwell comes in end of Q1, and the one with ARM core in Q3 or so .... but these are just rumors.
@Hydrolex I have the same setup on my PC as well (2 X Asus 2gb GTX670) , i have overclocked them even further than the Asus overclock. Firestrike score of X5767, very similar(if not better) to some GTX Titan/780 scores on 3D Mark. Would be interested to see the Maxwell cards in action though.
@Hydrolex Depends, Maxwell is supposed to be 20nm half pitch, but there's a rumor they might launch the architecture on 28nm. If it's 20nm though, expect massive performance gains.
Which will make anyone who bought a Titan feel like an ass.
Those damn MARS cards! Nvidia sure knows how to entice people before a new generation of video cards come out in a few months! Maxwell high end will be what? 3.5x more powerful then this! I think I'll wait for that instead...
2014 - Mid-range Maxwell cards (like GTX 680) 2015 - Top-range Maxwell cards (like GTX 780) I'll wait for the Big-Maxwell chip on 500-600 mm2 die.
Same here, but i'll be waiting for AMD's equivalent.. likely be a fair bit cheaper and just as good. Plus that Mantle API.
AMD's equivalent will be cheaper and just as powerful... but nVidia's frequent driver updates and support is where you get your money's worth for paying a little extra.
Lol, still using that old tired argument are we? AMD has gotten better with their drivers for the past few years, your point is moot. AMD's crossfire for the r9 290x is actually smoother and scales a lot better than NV's SLI. http://www.hardocp.com/arti... AMD is hard at work too.
all i can say is hd 7990 is a beast .
This is always how it is with "the card war" they are always one upping each other and neither is the best. I think even though I will be going with AMD because it is cheaper and the new consoles have AMD hardware in them so multiplat games are likely to run better on AMD hardware. Also Mantle will negate any difference in performance with nivida cards. I'm going AMD next because I don't like the direction nividia is going with their shield system I really do not think they are on the ball, also the fact they missed out on the consoles is a blow as well. It also doesn't help that nividias driver support has taken a nose dive recently with drivers bricking cards and bluescreening on youtube.
GTX780ti = meh and yawn Maxwell = saving all my little pennies because GDDR6 and 14 tflops sounds SO SEXY!
