Really worth the extra $$$ for the Titans? I think not! (Not for any mainstream user atleast)

It was good to see you prediction from when the 780's came out, which was that unless your doing high res and multiple displays, there is not really any point to buy titans except for bragging rights, the only thing is i guess that when water cooling, maybe the titans with the extra ram will over take the 780's by a larger margin. But for the general person, (like me ) the 780 will make alot of happy boys and girls if its a single card or more.

Great video as always Tom.......i notice at 20:36 you mention SLI watercooling briefly and suggest series is better and you’re not a fan of parallel which is something i have always been a fan of also but would love to see a video of the two methods back to back while you’ve got the 780’s or Titans in house

............as if you haven't got enough on your plate

Personally i'd be a bit pissed off with Nvidia if i'd bought a Titan only for them to release the 780 for a few hundred quid cheaper.

it's the same with the 680 and 670. Some 670s (Asus DCII) have the same performance and overclock better than some 680s. Not that much of a price difference between the 670 and 680 though, not compared to the 780 and Titan anyway.

Just like the 670s there are a few 780s with aftermarket coolers and factory overclocks which most likely beat the Titan as well.

As Tom said though the Titan is an Epeen card and most people that bought one bought it for that reason. Nothing wrong with that though.

Nice video Tom, glad to see you're back. However, I have one small gripe. Why did you compare a 780 @ 954/1006 to a Titan @ 837/876 ? Not to defend the Titan but wouldn't it be fair to compare them stock to stock and/or OC to OC??

They are both out of the box cards mate.

What I mean is the 780 Windforce is slightly factory-overclocked (actually clocked a good ~10.5% higher than reference 780) and has a custom cooling solution while the Titan used in the video is a reference card. When comparing them reference to reference the difference in performance might be enough to see the Titans in front in some of the graphs, if not by a large margin.

Are there actually any 'factory overclocked' titans?

Seems fair to compare a card to card in the out of box state to me

Thanks TTL good to see you back! You forgot the "ding" at the end though. Sniff sniff

@antihero
I know what you mean - it would be nice to see stock Titan compared with stock 780 in SLI with water cooling blocks etc. However Tom is comparing a 780 card that's cheaper than the Titan and showing it has better performance, which is great consumer advice! As an SLI Titan owner, believe me I wish it wasn't the case. In my defence though I bought them before the 780 came along.

Cheers,
Ulijin.
