Oh, what a sweet high-end card at such a great price. NVIDIA's tri-def is the biggest improvement that I see. Well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-buy for gaming enthusiasts looking for a high-end GPU. Sept. 20 2013
By CW - Published on
A couple of months ago I finally decided to splurge on a new rig. I had been thinking about getting a Titan for a while, but then Nvidia went ahead and released the GTX 780 for $350 cheaper. Every professional review I could find said it performed maybe 10-15% behind the Titan (and in some cases even outperforming it), and they all pointed out how for just 30% more money than the Titan, you could get two 780s and put them in SLI. So I took the plunge and now I have two GTX 780s in SLI powering a 2560x1440 display. The results have been phenomenal. The two cards can take pretty much anything I throw at them at spit back frames at 60 FPS. The only game I've had trouble staying above the 60-mark is Crysis 3 at max settings. Everything else has been smooth sailing. I mainly have an SLI setup so I can handle the WQHD resolution. If you only need to output 1920x1080, then one 780 should be sufficient unless you don't plan on upgrading again for a long time. If you have the money to spend and you want a top-of-the-line card then I highly recommend this card. Read on to find out why.

I won't go over every technical spec and detail; you can find them easily enough either here or on Nvidia's website. Instead, I will just give a brief overview of the card's performance and some features that most people (especially gamers) might be interested in.

EDIT: Added some information on overclocking potential that I left out.


- Fast. There's no doubt about it. The 780 currently is the second fastest single-GPU card behind the Titan, and outpaces the GTX 680 and AMD's HD 7970 by a comfortable 20-25%. One of these babies will be able to handle pretty much every game out there in existence at 1920x1080 at max settings. The only exceptions would be the most demanding games out there (Crysis 3, Metro: LL). If you're planning to game at higher resolutions (either 2560x1440/1600 or triple HD surround), one 780 may not cut it and you should consider multi-GPU solutions.

- Quiet. As long as the fans are operating below ~80-90% of max speed, you can barely hear them. The exhaust fan on my CPU liquid cooler regularly drowns out both GPU fans when using the default fan curve. I've since modified my fan curve and I now have the fans running at 100% of max during full load, making them louder and definitely audible from a few feet away. However, even in this scenario they're still quieter than the fan on my old laptop, which I think is pretty amazing.

- Cool. We are really hitting the trifecta here. The card runs surprisingly cool despite the relatively large TDP (250W) and the whisper-quiet fans. The 780 actually uses the same reference cooling solution as the Titan, and the extra surface area really seems to help with keeping the card nice and cool. The fans only need to run at 60% of max to keep the card at 80C during full load at the base clock speed. In fact, the default fan curve is pretty conservative, which helps to keep the cards running pretty quiet.

- Great overclocking potential. I was able to get to a stable 1 GHz core and 7 GHz effective memory at 106% power target with no overvolt. By adjusting the fan curve to something more aggressive than the default, I'm able to maintain a 1124 MHz boost core clock while gaming and stay under 80C. With this I get roughly 10-15% more frames in most games compared to stock clock.

- The GPU vents hot air out of the back (where the HDMI/DVI/etc. ports are) and not back into your case. This really helps keep the card cool, especially if your case doesn't have the best ventilation.

- Excellent SLI performance and scaling. This is probably due at least as much to Nvidia's drivers as it is to the card itself. I've been running two GTX 780s in SLI since day one, and the results have been nothing short of amazing. When I compare dual card to single card performance, I usually see at least a 50% improvement in framerate (see benchmarks below), and often the performance increase approaches 100%. I don't notice any microstuttering or any other degradation in image quality in SLI vs. single card mode.

- Very sturdy build. The card has an aluminum chassis just like the Titan; there's no plastic cover to be seen here.

- The card looks absolutely sexy. It's too bad it has to be tucked away inside my tower :(


- Price. This is probably the biggest knock against this card. While it's cheaper in terms of performance per dollar than a Titan, that's not saying much considering how overpriced the Titan is. If you're on a budget, consider the cheaper GTX 770, which is still quite a powerful card. You can save even more money with the GTX 760 (perhaps the most cost effective 700 series card). Or you can always buy AMD.

- Power consumption. At a TDP of 250W, it is the same as a Titan but with just a little bit less performance to go with it. Under full load this card sucks up quite a lot of juice, and doubly so if you've got two of them in SLI like I do. Make sure your power supply is sufficient (and you can afford the hit to your electric bill).

- Poor compute performance. Compared to the Titan, the 780 is somewhat gimped when it comes to compute. Single-precision is not bad but double-precision performance can be as little as just 50% of the Titan's. Just something to keep in mind if you plan on using the card for productivity. If your main or sole interest is gaming, then this will matter little to you.


- Amazon lists this card as DirectX 11.1 capable, however the GTX 780 (and all 700 series GPUs for that matter) technically do not support feature level 11_1 at a hardware level. However, most 11.1 features (all of the ones related to gaming according to Nvidia) ARE supported "at feature level 11_0". I don't know what this means exactly, but apparently in the end the card can in fact take advantage of the DirectX 11.1 features Nvidia has chosen to support. And as far as I know, the card does not support the upcoming DirectX 11.2 at the hardware level, and it's unknown at the time whether Nvidia will be able to expose those features at the software level with future driver updates.

- The GTX 780 supports GPU Boost 2.0. For those who don't know what this is, it's a feature where the card will automatically increase its core clock speed beyond the base clock frequency (essentially it overclocks itself) until it reaches a specified temperature target (default = 80C). It will maintain the overclock as long as there is any temperature headroom. By default, the clock will increase up to a maximum of 993 MHz. Nvidia doesn't provide any software to adjust settings for GPU Boost, but you can get free third-party software (e.g. EVGA Precision) for that. You can set both voltage and temperature targets (and prioritize one over the other).

- This is a dual slot card. Make sure you check the form factor and whether the card can fit in your case before buying.

- If you want to drive a monitor at greater than 1920x1080 resolution with the HDMI port, make sure to use an HDMI 1.4a-compliant cable.

(All Benchmarks were performed with GPU Boost and fan curves at default settings. Resolution was 2560x1440 unless otherwise stated.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Step in the right direction May 28 2013
By BadAndy - Published on
I got this card on launch day and have been utterly floored by it's capabilities. About 3 weeks ago, I upgraded from GTX 460 SLI to a 4GB GTX 670. I play in 5910X1080 bezel-corrected resolution, so I needed the extra VRAM and planned on getting another 670 to get the speed up. However, this baby came out well within my return window (thank you, Amazon!), so I decided to jump in the deep end and get the one of the best single cards on the market. My experience with the card has been very satisfying. Even at stock clocks, I was able to max out most games at my high resolution. For newer games, I'd have to turn off AA or lower the tessellation level to "normal" instead "max" in order to get 45+ fps. For example, I've been playing Metro: Last Light at 5910x1080 with very high settings, high PhysX, and AA turned off and have been getting an avg of 48+ fps, which is well with the enjoyable range for this game in nVidia Surround. On top of that, after a modest OC (+104MHz-Core Clock, +400MHz-Mem Clock, power tgt @ 104%), I played Metro for 2.5 hours and the temp topped at 70C with an average of around 68C. The Titan PCB's cooling efficiency is a huge asset to this card's worth. I have my fan curve set to hit 80%@70C with an aggressive increase starting around 55C. It does get loud, but not nearly as loud as the 670 I had in there last week. I use noise canceling headphones when I game, anyway (as to not wake my son/wife for my late night gaming sessions). In the end, this card has fulfilled all my expectations for a single card, Surround setup. Can't wait to get a second one to future proof my rig through the next generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Faster than the competition! May 25 2013
By hardgamer - Published on
UPDATE: So far the card has been amazing. I'm really surprised with its overclocking capability because I have managed to overclock it to 1150mhz/1650mhz and it's been stable in all of my games and benchmarks. I couldn't get my HD7970s no where near 1050Mhz for the life of me but the GTX780 overclocks really well. The temp also increased to 71c while I was playing BF3 for an hour or so.

I'm seeing a lot of people on forums that say 3GB VRAM isn't enough for high resolution gaming but they are wrong, it's more than enough for any game. While playing BF3 on max at 2560x1440, the vram usage was around 2GB so there's nothing to worry about. If you play games at a crazy high resolution such as 5760x1080 then go for the Titan since it has 6GB VRAM. Nvidia has another winner in their hands and now it's time for AMD to step up their game. Let me know if you guys want to know something specific about the card.


The card finally arrived today and I'm blown away by its sturdiness and performance. My previous rig consisted of 2x HD7970 but I have moved them to my second rig and have put this bad boy into my main rig now. My 2x HD7970 used to get quite loud under load and would put out quite a bit of heat and also, I'm sure everyone knows how terrible the micro stuttering and crossfire drivers are with AMD. They weren't bad cards at all but I wanted to go with the green team this time since Nvidia decided to use the Titan cooler on the GTX780 and nothing can come close to that cooler. If you are an enthusiast then the GTX780 is worth the money and you know you are getting a good deal when buying from EVGA because nobody can beat their customer service.

I have seen some people that give it bad reviews because of the price and those people shouldn't be allowed to build computers in the first place. If you complain about the price and how greedy Nvidia is, then remember that AMD did the same thing when they released their HD79xx series. Every company does this and that's the only way to make money in this business. If you still think that's not fair then stick with your Intel iGPU. :D

So these are some of the things that I have noticed so far with the card and I will update the review later after testing it more. Also, I have not tried to overclock the card yet because I'm still testing the stock settings. The automatic fan speed noise is inaudible in idle and even under load is great. I usually use MSI Afterburner to control the fan speed of all of my cards because the automatic fan speed doesn't do a great job at keeping the card very cool in my opinion.

The card idles at around ~30c which was same as my HD7970s so that's great. While playing BF3, FC3 and Bioshock Infinite, the temp jumped to 63c-65c which is relatively cool for this card. My HD7970s would go up to 71c. I then tried to stress test it with Furmark and saw that the temp jumped to 78c. I don't really care about Furmark because it's an unrealistic benchmark and the card will never reach that temp while playing games.

This card has absolutely no problems at maxing BF3 or any other game for that matter. I tested it by playing BF3 at maximum settings at 2560x1440 and the fps stayed around 65fps. I'm loving the smooth experience that this card delivers in games because I used to get a lot of micro stuttering with my HD7970s so I got sick of that. AMD has said that they will release a driver for crossfire users that fixes micro stuttering but it's been like 3 months so far and they still haven't released the driver.


+ Sturdy
+ Quiet Fans
+ GPU Boost 2.0
+ 3GB of Vram
+ Low temps in idle
+ Great Overclocker
+ From EVGA
+ Sexy


- None

Overall, I highly recommend the card to anyone who wants to try out Nvidia's second best card, after the Titan. It's very well designed, uses Titan's cooler, runs super cool and delivers a smoother gaming experience than any other card I have tried. You can't go wrong with EVGA because they have one of the best customer service and really care about their customers. I am glad I moved my HD7970s to my second rig because I couldn't handle all the crossfire problems I was getting with them and not to mention the micro stuttering. Now if you will excuse me, I have some testing to do!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful GFX Board! I'm not using it as a SLI (yet). Nov. 7 2013
By Sir_RUSH - Published on
Verified Purchase
I bought this to replace my XFX ATI Radeon 5750 to use with Windows 7 (I will NOT update to crappy Windows 8 and its bland "Tiles"!) and my Hackintosh. For anyone interested...Yes, Mavericks (Mac OS X) does support this board natively and via nVidia. I'm not into blood and guts and the Battle Field games, as I prefer more intelligent games...but it handle it all extremely well.
The Mac OS X is more power with this. It's Sweeeet!

I would have given it 5 stars but the black power cable that came with it to split a heavy duty power supply's cable was broken inside. I had to get the box for my power supply's leftover cables and find the extra. All in all, very happy. It's a HUGE board, so be sure you have the room in your Desktop case or you may have to rearrange as I did.
