there're also rumors online that you can BIOS flash a 680 into a 770 due to largely similar specs and practically the same die...
either way, it's sounding more and more like this is a publicity stunt for Nvidia and their attempt to get even more money out of kepler, rather than being forced to drop prices as the current series age...

I am surprised at the limit of 2GB of ram on mainstream cards. My last upgrade was to the GTX570 with 1.2GB of ram. More than enough processing power for my needs (until I get a higher res monitor some day), but I have already capped out the ram on games like Skyrim.
With next gen games coming out this year, and consoles putting much more emphases on memory capability compared to previous generation upgrades, I would imagine games coming out over the next 2 years to absolutely balloon on GPU ram requirements. And this will be doubbly true for PC gaming where better textures are typically the bonus to buying into the ecosystem. My next upgrade may not need that much GPU power, but I am thinking a minimum of at least 3-4GB of ram so that I do not get burnt again on capacity issues.

Meh, no matter. I won't be owning any of these any time soon. I just clicked so I can drool over the image. LOL
I might still get an AMD card for my next upgrade. :)

turns out that 770 is a reflashed 680. google search it. :D  you get a 5% performance boost.

So they're releasing slightly modified versions of their existing cards as a new series? No wonder AMD is skipping a numbering gen. Bring on HD 9xxx later this year and maybe Nvidia will answer with GTX 8xx shortly after.
I really can't afford to upgrade, but I'd like to get another pricewar going on new hardware so I can make an excuse to.

Damn. Those shrouds look sexy. Only reason I want one. I hope the 8XX series has those sexy shrouds the titan has.

Owning a 680 Lightning right now, I can tell you "above 1.3V", which I run at, uses a TON of power. Each of my cards uses 350W from the wall under full load, and I had to buy a new power supply after I was exceeding one of the 12V rails in my old PSU (30A limit).

If they implement GPU Boost 2.0 instead of 1.0 on all these cards, I would consider it, if not, screw it. Stick with AMD till Nvidia impresses me again.

Yup. The only 'new' thing they'll bring out is the 780 which is a slightly less powerful Titan then just move everything down a tier. Very disappointing. If the rumours are true about Volcanic Islands, hopefully that forces Nvidia's hand. Would love to see some hard fought competition about a year from now with Maxwell and VI.

I am much more interested in the AWESOME software capabilities the Titan has. Damn that would be great on a lower end card too.

Monitor OCing?
All of that thermal/acoustic customization.
So much OCing potential compared to other Kepler cards.

Never heard of the 780 eh? I wouldn't buy that anyway, I want 20nm, but still, they have one just not the 770/760 which are still both going to be bumps in clocks. They will essentially be 10-15% faster for the same price as the ones they replace. AMD didn't do that with the ghz editions, they cost more on debut (still do last I checked).

Link please. :)  With 250w to play with vs. 680's 195 (assuming this is correct, great overclocker), I'm betting 10-15 is easy. They can hit 1300 if you push them (nearly every overclocking article on 660TI-680 shows this, hardocp etc) so I'm sure it's doable and they'll likely release a driver enhancement that gives this anyway. Look at the jump they just gave with 320.14 2 days ago. Tombraider up 18% on a 660. You're 5-10 claim is backed by some benchmarks I hope? NV didn't even start optimizing 600 series drivers until Dec (due to Never Settle finally catching them, thank god). Clearly they have more in the chips, and they're clocking them up too. Look at the ghz editions, AMD got more via the clock than 5-10 and this is the same or more if specs are correct.

The old 670 (a 770 replaces this) had 1344 cuda and this has 1536. 670 has 915/980 clocks while this 770 has 950/980. You don't think 15% more cores, more watts and higher clocks will get 10-15%? This is simple math no? With 55more watts I find the 980 strange and think it may be incorrect, but we'll see.

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-670-tes...
670 ref scored 13951 x 1.1=15346. GTX 680 ref scored 15839. So more than 10% right? Nevermind the OC ability with 55 extra watts at hand over 680 ref. 15% would be 16043. So mighty close to 15% right? Far from 5%. If the 680 was only 5% faster than 670 at this price range nobody would have ever bought a 680...LOL. $100 for 5%?

You surely are just as disappointed (and going to complain in the 8970m thread right after this right?) that AMD just rebadged 7970m as 8970m right?
http://www.tomshardware.com/news/AMD-Radeon-8970M-MSI-G...
"The HD 8970M is simply a rebrand of the original HD 7970M. The only difference appears to be the added Boost technology, which brings the maximum stock clock speed up to 900 MHz."

Don't worry, I already put a complaint for guys like you and Warezme over in the 7970m...oops I mean 8970m thread...LOL. Funny none of you complain on AMD rebadge but always swing at NV for it. Practically the same friggin day in this case for both...ROFL.

FYI AMD hits with Volcanic Q4, then NV will respond as usual with a maxwell in Q1. Well known, no surprise from either. This happens every year.

um, thanks for complaining? I am just as disappointed. however it's for mobile space so honestly I don't care that much since I've moved off of mobile gaming.

as for NV's response with maxwell in Q1 2014, yes, that's expected and should be interesting.

"it's sounding more and more like this is a publicity stunt for Nvidia and their attempt to get even more money out of kepler"

Wasn't that you complaining? I merely tried to balance you two out ;)  Isn't AMD doing the same (my point) by milking 7000's all the way to end of 2013 instead of a Nov2012 release? By rebadging 7970m? We wouldn't be talking about this if AMD had released something instead of pushing the same product all the way to the end of this year. NV, as the market share leader here (65%, and without problems), only needs to respond with cuts or products when forced (much like Intel does - don't see a price drop from them with no AMD competition either). That doesn't make me happy, it's just the facts of life.

Heck, it would be nice if AMD actually fixes their drivers before releasing something else (prototype after Q2? for a year+ product?). Again, something NV doesn't have to do (they just work). Both delaying possibly could be blamed on TSMC process failure, but you get the point. If NV is milking us, so is AMD. AMD gives you lots of games, but only because they're getting so much bad press and reviews (FCAT, Enduro, CF negative scaling etc etc) they are FORCED to bribe you. IF they had everything in order with no problems there would be no never settle bundles like today. Nobody gives away their bottom line to do us favors...LOL. Companies are in business to...well...milk us...LOL. AMD isn't out to make sure we all have more games. They have to. AMD is no better than NV. In tom's 7990 review 5/5 gamers chose NV. Why would they cut the price with those kind of reviews floating around everywhere? If the shoe was on the other foot I'd expect the same from AMD and wouldn't be "complaining" as it's par for the course for all companies.

Umm, thanks for complaining first. And, you're welcome; glad I could be of service :)
