Nvidia Gsync ftw! I hope AMD gets the same treatment and its not exclusive either way.


But at what price? "Top gaming monitors" doesn't bode well for anyone's wallet.

G-Sync Module will be integrated into the top gaming monitors around the world

I'm thinking of the future. New tech is always expensive. This is the sort of technology that will change the way monitors work in the future. It makes sense that the GPU would determine the scans rather than having them asynchronously updating.

I'm worried Nvidia is going to make it exclusive but I'm hopeful that both sides get involved in this technology. Now framerates can seem a lot smoother than they ever did. Lag, stutter, and tearing gone regardless of framerate.

I'm all for new tech too, I just find it hard to get excited about anything that's not going to be commonplace anytime soon (and will be prohibitively expensive until it is). It would be nice if both sides were able to get involved, but when have they ever played nicely with each other?

I wouldn't call an average of 5FPS in most games "smashing" considering the 780 is going to be older...


It beats the Titan on an avarage of 23% that's a lot more than 5fps.
Up to 50% or more in a couple of games, thats pretty major

And Nvidia just announced their 780Ti out this November... The cycle continues.

So it is still only as fast as a Titan?

The stock 780 has 30-40% stable OC headroom to begin with and uses a lot less power (apparently) than the 290X which could indicate the 290x is on the high side of it's power limitations.

I'm guessing it will be trading blows with a factory OC 780.


The 780 is trailing by over 20% in the benchmarks above. Where are you finding these 780's overclocked 20% at stock?

Not to discount the lead amd has in these benches but considering it's in 4k it's kinda expected for the 290x to take even more of a lead with the extra rops and 512 bit memory bus. I'm much more interested in a suite of games at more mainstream resolutions.

There's some pretty steep bias to this article.

I mean to me it's obvious that amd let these benches get released first as their cards will have an innate advantage at these settings. All the other leaks that started coming out the last week or two have been pretty close to each other and show much closer competition between the 780 and 290x. Hopefully amd just lifts this damn NDA so we can actually learn something about the card other than this hype.
