Again.. Please stop mis-informing / trolling

Have 780's with 3GB vram and I max it out regularly @ 1440 not even on AAA games that are resource hogs.. Not even surround.. and before you say no-one uses it.. why else have a card that powerful?

Please stop with this now. Enough mis-info / trolling

Guess from leaked / announced spec would be 7% ish while being at titan / 780 noise / heat.

Find out REALLY bloody soon.


Re Titan.. Second-hand prices won't drop THAT much I don't think. Many devs want them and there is no reason to jump over to 780ti.

^^^^ Just a heads up ZZ.....many games will show that they are using as much VRAM as you can throw at em, this certainly doesn't mean that the game requires it. In other words a 2G Card can show utilization of 1.9 G while the same game running on a 3G Card can show 2.5 G utilization. ........just to clarify ;)

Ok you don't need 3GB to max out games with smooth framerate. vram does not boost framerates. It's not trolling when I provided links. Vram does not matter @ 1080P only at triple monitor rez. GTX 680 2Gb and 4GB perform the exact same @ 1080P

As I said.. whats the point in all that power at 1080... vram is a non issue yes but then so is the gpu power. Why have a 780 nevermind a 780ti at all @1080 is the question not 4GB.

To maintain the minimum framerate @ or above you monitors native refresh rate for optimal smoothness and enjoyment. Even a 780 will not maintain at a minimum of 60fps in many heavy hitter game @ 1080P like Crysis 3 etc with all the filters cranked up and maxed settings. Some people are fine when the framerate drops below the monitors refreshrate but honestly if you paid for all the GPU power than I would expect it to perform @ or near perfect with all the fillers maxed out and setting cranked.

So if a 780 can't even handle it how does your hardware handle it?
