Oh heck yeah, we review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Ti WindForce 3X OC, with a new 450W WindForce 3X cooler and a factory overclock this thing is fast ! NVIDIA unlocked the GPU completely meaning all...

how many 780TIs have you exactly right now in your test lab, Hilbert? if I may ask, it would be fun to know.
three?
thanks for firestrike pic.

Ehm, three right now but EVGA and Inno3D's are inbound as well. And per request 3DMark FireStrike screenshots will be included so you guys can check GPU scores etc.

Thanks for this review Hilbert! Any chance for R9 290/290X review with some non-reference cooler soon?

Of course we'll review them, but it depends on the board partners when they release them. And this far the signals remain early December.

Wow! Really impressed.
Same performance of my GTX690 and probably will overclock even more when voltage unlocked... and is even more silent and cooler.

Damn, that's one quick card. Be interesting to see what the 290X can do with proper cooling.

not much, 290x is not a clear winner against titan but 780 ti is.

290 is a more interesting card than 290X.

Amazing - equal or better performance than my 680 SLI just a couple years after the fact, and most importantly, quiet.

AWESOME! This is the card I want with a Gsync monitor. That's unbeatable combo for sheer quality and cool and quiet. Congrats Nvidia!

I agree what Hilbert said in his review, something within this caliber should have gotten at least 4gb of available vram.

Anyone thinks a 4gb+ version might be available coupled with good quality voltage regulators for better overall oc'in.

LOL, I am still waiting for anothe dual card to come out, particularly the maxwell gpu's.

This one looks very good, makes we wanna sell the 690 but for now, I am still holding off.

I'm very happy to see that Gigabyte managed to get that cooler down to almost 1,5 slot width only. That makes the card the ideal choice for tri or quad SLI, with the cards right next to each other. With my two 660ti that is impossible. If they sit right side by side, the lower card blocks airflow to the upper card nearly completely. As a result it gets *very* noisy, while load temperatures rise to 90+.

So this card didn't overclock any better than the reference 780ti?

Quote "That combined with increased core and memory clock frequencies and nice overclock potential"

Hmmm except it's not true!

I suspect the card was throttling due to TDP limit and it doesn't matter what cooler you put on it, you aint gunna get any significant increase in overclocking ability.

Also, that cooler just recycles the heat round your case where the reference design blows it out the back.

Yeah with more noise so, it's up to the user to choose what's best for him. Personally for this tdp the custom cooler is better.

The reference cooler is actually very good, I have one on my Titan and you can't actually hear it over the system fans when playing a game.

I wasn't having a go at the cooler, it's more the rubbish TDP limits on these cards.

Do I want one? Yes. Am I willing to pay that much for a graphics card? No.

Srlsy, I'm drooling over the performance but I have a limit as to how much I'd spend on a graphics card. I think 300 is about it.

i don't see how this is a better deal than a 290x considering it's $200 cheaper than a 780Ti, especially when the 290x Non-Reference hits the shelves and mantle API released in December. As well, the 290X comes with 4GB of Vram versus this model which only has 3GB. And your paying well over $700 with taxes, that is disappointing. Things could drastically change really fast.

well considering the crashes on the 290's i'd rather pay more..but yeah @550 i cant afford that atm and i'd rather get something with more umpf than a 780..(well am moving to higher res next yr).

As a new card, Im sure these issues will be resolved with later driver releases, exactly why I am not currently purchasing either card... but my bet is on the 290X in a month down the road.
