    980 Ti

    I just placed an order for a pair directly from Nvidia. My 680's can finally retire after nearly 40 months of service.

    It's official - 980ti to cost $799

    For that price, you are better off getting a Titan X.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X Video Card PREVIEW @ [H]

    So what you're saying is you want AMD/ATI to pull another 9700 Pro? That would be awesome.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X Video Card PREVIEW @ [H]

    I'm probably going to replace my 1440p setup with a single card this go round. I'm going to wait and see what the 390x/980Ti offer before doing a refresh of my 680s/7970s. $2000 is my GPU spending limit for the two systems.

    gtx 470...what to upgrade to?

    A 750Ti's performance is in the vacinity of a GTX 480. IMO, a 760 will be the minimum you need to see significant gains. I would just try and save up for a 970 or wait and see what the 960 has to offer.

    What is the performance jump which triggers you to buy new card?

    Eyefinity was the feature in recent memory that made me to that. I went from a single GTX 280 to Xfire 5870's. Along with monitor costs, the price of entry was pretty steep at the time. No regrets, as I still enjoy multi-monitor gaming to this day.

    What is the performance jump which triggers you to buy new card?

    I use to buy just about every generation, but have held onto my 680/7970 setup for close to three years now. They handled the games I play fine (Skyrim, BF3/4, CS:GO, the Batman series, etc.) and I saw no need to pickup the Hawaii/780i/Maxwell series. With games like DA:I and the upcoming...

    Dragon Age Inquisition benchmarks.

    I've been holding out for "Big Maxwell"/390x, but I may have to upgrade one of my systems sooner. I'll have to wait and see what my performance at 1440p will be (minus AA) in a few hours. Xmas may be coming early.

    Watch Dogs On Consoles = PC On "High" Settings

    UBISoft will blame piracy when one of their games don't sell well on the PC.

    Watch Dogs On Consoles = PC On "High" Settings

    AC IV used the Anvil Engine. Watchdogs uses the new Disrupt Engine which appears to be a combination of Anvil and Far Cry 3's Dunia. AC IV was capped, but FC 3 was not. If WD were to use the Anvil Engine, I would be inclined to a FPS cap. For no other reason than using a different engine do I...

    Watch Dogs On Consoles = PC On "High" Settings

    Then again, the consoles are capped at 30fps 792/900p. I personally don't care if a still picture looks the same across the platforms. Gameplay at >60FPS and uncapped resolution is what will make the PC version superior.

    Steve, I was finally able to ship my stuff yesterday. You should be getting it within 3 days or so. Fedex ground was surprisingly cheap.

    ASUS R9 290X DirectCU II OC Video Card Review @ [H]

    Good review, but I don't see any of the e-tailers selling this for MSRP in the current climate. By the time it even approaches MSRP, I suspect we may be close to Maxwell.

    PS4 & XBox One versions of Tomb Raider get TressFX

    Had they released this game on the X1/PS4 12-18 months from now, there would be no way they could charge the $59.99 asking price for an updated older title. SquareEnix is banking on early adopters to pick this up.

    Now that dust has settled, are you playing your new consoles?

    I've been spending more time with BF4 on the PC to be honest. I do play an occasional game of FIFA 14 on occasion.

    Infamous is coming in April. I am definitely looking forward to it.

    wow. Xbox live free games vs free PS+ games.

    I think what he is trying to say is: If your PSN+ subscription expires and you don't renew the subscription, the "Free" games are gone. The games are more of a free, long term rental than being free outright. On the other hand, if your Xbox Live Gold subscription expires and you don't...

    Xbox One is Significantly Weaker: Do you care? Interesting results. X1 version is graphically inferior but is more consistent than the PS4 version in multi player. Intriguing to see that each system has its shortcomings with the game.

    MS accepts Xbone runs games slower and at lower res

    BINGO! On the PC side, the 7800 series is roughly 25-30% faster than the 7700 series. The bottom line, MS went with the lower end GCN (Cape Verde) while Sony went with the mid-range GCN (Pitcairn). Had they not tried to force Kinect down the throats of consumers (IMHO), they could of put a...

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Video Card Review @ [H]

    I'm guessing you have never handled an AMD 6900/7900. All it takes to changes BIOS is moving the switch over a position. It takes no effort whatsoever. If taking an extra second to switch to Uber mode is a show stopper, I simply don't know what to say.

    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Video Card Review @ [H]

    The 780ti is a competitive card with a non-competitive price tag. I realize they had no competition for 8 months, but their pricing doesn't reflect today's market. $599 would have been the perfect price tag (imo) for the better noise/thermals.

    780 Ti on sale now

    I can't wait to see what [H] shows us. My expectation is it will probably be the fastest single cards available. This makes me extremely eager to see [H]'s follow up SLI/Xfire review.

    AMD Radeon R9 290 Video Card Review @ [H]

    I stopped trusting/reading Anandtech's video card reviews when 3870x2 was released. They praised the card up and down using CANNED reviews. [H] put the smack down on them when they said in ACTUAL gameplay, the 3870x2 was a stuttering mess.

    AMD Radeon R9 290 Video Card Review @ [H]

    So this is the other shoe dropping. Competition is fantastic! Just two weeks ago, to get this type of performance you had to shell out $650.

    Xbox One is Significantly Weaker: Do you care?

    The reason why I purchase a console is for their exclusives. The PS3/Xbox 360 have had some good ones only available the their respective platforms. That said, any multi-platform title that is available for the PC, I generally choose the PC. Then there are those rare instances where a...

    BF4 PS4 vs One Footage Coming

    The performance discrepancy should come as no surprise. The XBOne's GPU is somewhere between a 7770 and a 7790. The PS4 is between a 7850 and 7870. Using Anandtech's benchmark, with the best case scenario (7790/7870), there's roughly a 25% performance difference between the two without doing...

    Are the price drops from Nvidia enough to make you go Nvidia rather than AMD?

    I plan on sitting out this round. If I was going to choose this round, Nvidia's price drop makes their offering a bit more tempting.

    Radeon R9 R290X aims at $549 pre-tax price

    This. I want to see if Frame Pacing is in place at higher resolutions/multi-monitor settings. By my count, it took AMD ~19 months to address it with Tahiti. (AMD soft/paper launched Tahiti on 12/22/11 and Frame Pacing Beta drivers released on 8/1/13)

    What video card has served you the longest before upgrading?

    Nvidia 6800GT. From 2004 through 2008. My next upgrade after that was an 8800GT 512mb.

    AMD R9 290X Beating The GeForce GTX 780?

    Competition is good. I'll probably sit out this round though, but I'm really anxious to see what a pair of 290x's in Xfire can do.
