    Great review, beastly card, and again it's a shame it only has 3GB vram. This card would be pretty future proof otherwise.

    If it had 4gb I might consider swapping it out over my 780 Classified...but as it gets less than overall 10 FPS...I see no reason...

    My gtx 780 classified is already around 2500mb in BF4

    Same here, although I do want to upgrade, I don't want to be vram chocked again by this time next year when "next gen" games will be out and I'm 100% sure they will be more and more vram hungry, and I'm playing at 2560x1440.

    Very true...im also on 1440p and noticed BF4 alone is around 2500mb for me...so I can only see in next couple years that going up...

    My next card will be 4gb min. for now on

    Very impressive, but is still over priced.

    This should be priced at around $600.

    plus only 3GB of VRAM?

    I am getting close to the 4GB on my 290s in BF4 @ 1600p with the resolution slider at 160%.

    I never understood why you can buy the 760s and 770s with 4 GB but their higher end models only have 3GB VRAM, it doesn't make sense to me. Unless there is a tech limitation or something preventing 4GB on the 780s.

    There is no limitation in ripping people off. They know that as soon as gamers get a 4k monitor, they will want to get a new gpu.

    It is a technical limitation. The memory bus on 760/770 is 256bit and the memory chips have to be divisible by that: 256mb x 8 chips for 2gb (2048mb) or 128mb x 8 for 1gb or 512mb x 8 for 4gb. If asymmetrical, it loses efficiency/performance. The 780/ti/Titan have 384bit busses which in the same way can only be 3/6gb. There are ways around it and exceptions to the rule (ie, 660ti with 192bit bus/2gb), but I dont think Nvidia is keen to do this on their upper end cards.

    Same applies to AMDs cards: 290/x = 512bit bus, 4gb. 7950/7970 = 384bit, 3gb cards.

    I figured it must be something like that (tech limitation), it would not have made sense otherwise. Thanks for sharing. :)

    Even those high end beast are incapable of keep good fps at UHD and people wonder why they arnt readily available, And why I keep saying they wont be till GPU can actually handle them and not cost 500+.

    Though on the 1080p those cards should run circles around my card, But 1080p test seem to be missing from those tests and 1080p isnt going anywhere any time soon

    Which OC program would be the very best choice for this and other EVGA cards?
    EVGA's Precision, or my all time favorite, the latest Beta version of Afterburner?
    The difference? EVGA Precision has to stick to whatever mandates Nvidia imposes on it.
    Afterburner only answers to its creator.
    Precision and Afterburner are similar, but one is not a clone of the other.
    There are differences.
    BTW, I bought the K|NGP|N Edition of this card:

    This was the closest review I could find for my new card, by a reviewer which I can trust.
    Thanks, Hilbert!
