Gaming Performance

We won’t comment too much on performance here since the charts generally speak for themselves. EVGA’s 12% overclock isn’t a massive overclock, but it’s easily enough to push the card into a higher tier of performance. Compared to a reference GTX 780, the 780SC ACX is consistently ahead by 6-12% depending on the game, and with the exception of Bioshock it is within +/- 2% of GTX Titan. Out of the box, the only performance advantage GTX Titan would hold is in scenarios where more than 3G of VRAM is required, and at this point in time those are few and far between. In other words, we're looking at a GTX 780 with GTX Titan performance.

    The HOF being a 3 slot card and being 11.5" long will keep it from fitting in a number of cases. Reply

    Meh... I don't trust Galaxy's brand/customer support. If I were buying today, I'd take the EVGA Classified. Reply

    Yeah, thanks for calling me a "fool" because I'd rather spend my money (and less of it) with a company whose service is legendary than one that, until recently, was pretty much known for competing only by making a less expensive version. Reply

    The HOF cards are blowing up on OCN. Reply

    The HD 7970 GHz used sure is quiet and cool running, and I'm currently using a Red Team card. : ) Reply

    nVIDIA took a very human emotional route when naming Titan. There are only so many times within a generation you can give something an amazing name and expect respect. The fact is, the 780 with some extra clock speed can surpass it with less cost.

    Let's save epic names for cards that utterly surpass the best card by double or more, eh?

    Just in case you don't know what I mean, ask a lay person, what sounds more awesome: "'seven-eighty' or Titan'". Yeah. Reply

    Except that when the Titan came out, the competition was the 680, and it did crush it by quite a margin. Reply

    Let's not forget - the ONLY logical reason to buy a Titan is for it's floating point performance. If you're not attempting to build a home supercomputer, then stick with the consumer cards. Reply
