Guys there is something wrong with the GTX 770 Vs. GTX 780. The 770 scores better in gaming according to this site and higher overall, 7.5 vs 6.9. Please fix this is VERY misleading!
I GOT TOILET JAPANESE colored lights and water fountain WHEN I POPO is pretty COOL
I GOT TOILET JAPANESE colored lights and water fountain WHEN I POPO is pretty chill
Got my fridge and its pretty cool.
Got my Samsung refrigerator and its pretty chill too
Crysis warhead 2013?????something wrong with release date here or I missing something???
Roughly accurate up until the 780 > 690 bit.
Got my D-Wave one quantum computer the other day and it's pretty cool.
thats how they always work though. typically the current gen is better that the last years model that is 1 up from it. 750 > 660 760 > 670 770 > 680 780 > 690
I got my dual titan's and tit is pretty chill when they are watercooled
I wasn't questioning whether or not it was a re-branding or upgraded 680, I was merely pointing out that the improvements are a little better than simple "marginal" as compared to the same numbered 6xx series cards. I think my statement is pretty accurate since, as we have already established, the 770 is an upgraded 680, but it's direct predecessor in the 6xx series is the 670, which is obviously a step below the 680.
Only "marginal" improvements over last gen? That's more than a little understated if you look at the specs and benchmark results... Using the ASUS-2GB OC edition (my current GTX 770 make/model) as point of comparison, it outclasses not only it's 600 series predecessor (GTX 670) but also outperforms the previous gens next higher level, the GTX 680. As for price, it has dropped considerably since your post (and since I got MY card, which I'm annoyed about...) and is now on par with pricing we saw with the previous series when -it- was current.
Good catch, thanks for that.
got my gtx 770 ichill@ 1254mhz, pretty nice!
The AnandTech reference is incorrect for Crysis Warhead. This page is comparing the GTX 770's "2560x1440 - Enthusiast Quality + 4x MSAA" to the 1080P score of the GTX 780.
Am more than happy with my GTX780, 770 is a nice card for the price but only marginal improvements over the last 'gen'.
Thanks, we've fixed that up here:
Hello. You need to fix this post, the GTX770 has same chip has GTX680 (in other words is an overclocked GTX680) and that is the GK104, the only cards that has GK114 at the moment are the Titan and the GTX780, click on the link below and scroll down a bit and you will see the GTX770 chip BTW this post is really good, i was looking for a website to have side to side the cards im considering to buy and this website has all VS info i need to compare and decide.
