780 vs 780TI on 1080p

#1yhmusicPosted 10/31/2013 7:56:49 PM
How many years do you think either card will still play new games at high/max 1080p without SLI? Similar amount of time between the two? Or is next gen too hard to predict?

Max in single gpu? 1 year
In SLI? 2-3 years

I think this makes it seem like the card won't stay strong for long. It'll be pushing out higher than PS4 graphics for its life, but if developers decide to push the PC version of titles with insane effects, it will stop maxing things out. Doesn't mean they still won't look utterly phenomenal.

I would say 2 years for Ti, and not much less for 780. If 780 stops doing it, Ti likely will very, very shortly thereafter.
Of course, it's possible that AMD's "gaming evolved" campaign continues to grow, and they continue to push supersampling/downsampling as a way of artificially increasing GPU demand, like they did with Tomb Raider and Sleeping Dogs. If that's the case, it may be quite a bit shorter.

Is this a trend in AMD gaming evolved titles? Just offering SSAA?

That costs money, and most developers already have out-of-control budgets just getting console graphics out the door. I don't foresee any multiplatform games going for drastically improved graphics on PC in the 8th Gen. If your video card is potent enough to do PS4/XBONE graphics now, it will last until the 9th Gen.

Hmm thanks. Interesting. I'm debating the two cards. So both will also run games on medium for 3/4/5 years you think? Is it worth it waiting for next gen games to start coming out so AMD/Nvidia can optimize?

It'll run games above console graphics for the life of the consoles. The 780, and especially 780TI are so much more powerful than the PS4 that there's no optimization that'll bridge the gap. It's impossible.

Alright sweet thanks, so I should probably just go for a 780 if on 1080p? 780TI seems kinda overkill for me but what do i know.

Maybe the 780 GHz is as far as I'd go at 1080p unless you feel like cranking the AA on everything.

780 is pretty awesome a 1080p, especially with a light overclock.
