Test Setup, Overclocking and Temps

nVidia GTX780Ti Review

Test Setup

nVidia GTX780Ti
Intel Core i7-3960X @ 4.6GHz
ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
Corsair Dominator Platinum
Corsair AX1200i
Corsair Neutron GTX
Corsair H100i
Windows 7 x64 


As we'll see on the next page there are some under the hood tweaks that allow the GTX780Ti to overclock better than its predecessor. Rather than draw all the power from either the PCI Express 3.0 slot, or the power inputs, the GTX780Ti manages the balance between them better. This has an enormous benefit to the overclocking with incredible speed attainable. The GPU Core is bumped from 876MHz to 1101MHz thats a 225MHz offset and the the boost pushes this even further up to an amazing 1244MHz! The already blisteringly quick 7GHz GDDR5 manages a further 600MHz, which should make a big difference in our high resolution tests.

nVidia GTX780Ti Review


As both AMD and nVidia now use any thermal headroom to increase the performance of their card, so the temperature testing is less about the cooler than it used to be. However, it's clear that the reference nVidia cooler is a much better proposition for the rest of your system when compared to the Radeon. That heat has to go somewhere and with the GTX780Ti there is less of it to disperse.

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.Quote

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!Quote
