    Yeah, I figured it would be a kick to the folding (and mining) nuts, but yasamoka seems to think it will affect some games. I don't know anything about any game features using double precision... anyone?

    So many of you guys thinking of getting rid of the 680 SLI to an 780, that I wonder if the increased supply brings the 680 auctions at ebay down to ~200 Euros. That could be attractive for an 680 SLI.

    BTW, as I said about the GTX 480, I am demoralized with the situation of having disabled units in the card and thus I'm not attracted by the 780.

    Double precision is more for the scientific community, there's not a chance a game developer will be using DP at least for now. You don't need that kind of accuracy within a game for that large of a performance hit.

    Yeah I guess you guys here are right. Some games use DirectCompute features, but that doesn't mean that they are double-precision. However, DirectCompute was weak on the GTX680, and I guess it still is on the GTX780.

    @Neo Cyrus:
    Tomb Raider's TressFX via DirectCompute
    Dirt Showdown's Global Illumination via DirectCompute
    Sniper Elite V2's compute-based AA via DirectCompute

    The list is still very small, but eventually more and more games might rely on DirectCompute, not necessarily double precision though.

    And yeah, for folding it's a kick in the nuts. The GTX680 gets 80K PPD vs. the 7970's 110K PPD which is absurd considering the performance in gaming between the two is much closer.

    I'm not even going to bother look it up to find out if any of the games using DirectCompute use DP since I just discovered when all is said and done it costs nearly $750 here. I want one, but my common sense stabs me with a knife if attempt to go near my wallet.

    Availability and pricing in Canada suck, I'm helping a friend who's building his rig there and we're having a lot of issues getting good deals for good items.

    Well i was wrong it's much closer than i expected. I'll just have to increase my OC on my 7970s :) if i didn't have 7970s though i would be looking at two of these. Wish they were 500$ 650$ even for the performance would be hard to swallow.

    Wait on the 770 and see what it brings I know a Ghz overclock on my VRAM nets a good increase in performance maybe this "new" GK104 may have even more overhead say average OC of 1306/7600

    OT what volts are you running on that 6970 to get that OC and is it a real 6970?

    Cool card but not that much of an upgrade for the price.

    I was really hoping the 780 would replace the 680 at its price point. Guess I had hoped for too much.

    I hope this doesn't mean $500 GTX 770s...

    Guess it's back to the waiting game to see what happens.

    770s will probably be 450$. 500$ for 90% of Titan's performance was wishful thinking.. i was hoping too :(.

    Other than the 780 the rest doesn't appeal to me. If 770 is just a revamped 680 and is at 450$ there would be no reason to buy it over a 7970 IMO coupled with the bus width holding it back at higher res. Then again i could be wrong and it might be 350-400.

    Considering the Taric level of outrageousness on the prices of the higher cards, I expect the 770 to be the same price as it was when it was called the 680, $500, again. Not buying.

    It's a 6950 with a 6970 BIOS, voltage is currently at 1.28 up from 1.175. The HSF is an Arctic Accelero Xtreme Plus. It OCs as high as any 6970 can, so it's a real 6970 to me. If it were some low binned chip that couldn't hit 1GHz, I'd call it a 6950. :wanker: But seriously the only difference is it uses 6 + 8 pin connectors instead of 8 + 8 otherwise they're identical.

    well with the prices of the 280, 8800 ultra in years past with no competition, history is repeating itself with the titan and 780, I expect the 770 to be 499, 760ti 399. moving in on the same price points of the 680 and 670

    I see my backup has a reference XFX 6950 with shaders unlocked and OC to 915/5000 but mine only has the 6+6 power connectors I have it at 1.14V right now may try for more. Okay sorry guys for the off topic.

    Wow it seems to stack up against the TITAN well at the high res, i would pay for it if I didnt already have my 2x670's but I only play at 1080res so no upgrade for me for a while I thinks.

    Thanks for making my mind up nvidia, staying with my 2 x 460's until Maxwell, then again I might stay with 2 x 460's :D

    WOW!! why dont you go buy one then and get rid of that shoddy 460?
    If i wanted to i could buy 4 of these or 8 or 12 lol. I dont need to upgrade my card or cpu for that matter but i think you do. I bet you get around 30 fps with no AA and all options on Ultra low.:p

    Id rather game on my Tablet than game with what you have and i have'nt turned my Tablet on for around 4-5 months.
