Well, I'm glad I held off for a few more hours to see at least some results before hitting the "checkout" button at newegg and getting the 780. Now I can get the 770 and a good creative sound card for even cheaper than the single 780. I plan only on 1080p gaming.
SA have the following results along with environment, scenario and settings information per test (though I presume at 1600p and not 1800p as stated):
Driver versions aren't stated, and the settings do seem to vary quite a bit.
Please for the love of my sanity update the gallery option you have! I don't want to have to click twice, be removed from the article AND have a new window open just to view an image at a reasonable size!
GTX600/HD7000 series is great for people who still runs GTX 400 series or HD5000 series. They get more than double the performance for the same pricepoint.
700 series only gives an incremental almost not noticeable upgrade from 600/7000 serie users.
By the time 600/7000 series is too slow for latest games, then the 700 series will then just be barely playable. No point upgrading from 600/7000 series.
You guys need to make a habit of comparing past generation cards to current cards. The 7970 doesn't really count. I'd like to 670 vs 770, and 680 vs 780. I'm not sure why this is so difficult to achieve.
yes its a pass, i don't understand the $400 pricing when you can get a 680 or 7970 for about $370 for the same performance. pricing should have been $460 for the 780 and $340 for the 770, far far far far more of both cards would be sold, i would say probably triple.
Common Toms Hardware!! what happened??!?!? to me this is like the #1 tech news/info/review site, but now you guys are back to posting bias posts. I'm sure you guys have the resources to bench your own gtx 770 and 7970ghz... Give us MORE Articles tested by Toms Hardware! not from a site that takes bribes... Toms you guys should be more like Top Gear, but in hardware
