NVIDIA is going to launch their next flagship graphic card known as the GeForce GTX 780 Ti (Titanium) in mid of next month. The graphic card is going to tackle the Radeon R9 290X which dominates the price to performance value and was launched just a few days back.
Alleged NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti 3DMark 11 Score Unveiled
A forum member on XtremeSystems posted an alleged 3DMark 11 score which he claims is the performance of the reference GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphic card. From the screenshots, it can be clearly seen that the GeForce GTX 780 Ti ends up as a faster solution than the GeForce GTX Titan and the Radeon R9 290X. The performance may be faster in synthetic benchmarks but gaming results are a whole different story so we have to wait to see the final performance results of the card when the card launches next month.
Furthermore, the sample received by the user isn’t exactly a retail sample but an engineering board with 6 GB VRAM and an increased core count compared to the GeForce GTX 780 (2304 Cores). The user didn’t pointed out the exact number but we will get to know them in the upcoming weeks. Usually, such board samples end up with lower clock speeds than the retail models so one can expect even better performance in the final models. You can see the performance results below:
3DMARK 11 Performance:
- GeForce GTX 780 Ti: X5204 (100%)
- GeForce GTX Titan: X4924 (94.6%)
- Radeon R9 290X: X4664 (89.6%)
From previous reports, we came to know that the GeForce GTX 780 Ti would end up around a similar price point as the GeForce GTX 780 which currently retails at $649. This means that the GeForce GTX 780 itself would get a price cut down to a competitive positing against the Radeon R9 290 which is faster but lacks behind in overclock performance from the benchmarks seen previously. The GeForce GTX 780 Ti would be NVIDIA’s next entry into the GeForce lineup as a flagship part competing against the Radeon R9 290X which offers extremely good value and performance currently at only $549 and the non-reference models which launch next month which will cost slightly closer to the $600 US range.
