GTX-790-Banner-635x288.jpg

Nvidia’s response to the AMD Vesuvius.

 

"It appears that the ”GTX 790” will not be a Dual 780 Ti, a Dual Titan or even a Dual GTX 780. It is rather something inbetween these three. A 780 has 2304 Cuda Cores, a Ti 2880 and a Titan 2688. The Nvidia Geforce GTX 790 will have:

 

  • Cuda Cores: 2496 (x2)
  • Memory: 5Gb GDDR5 (x2)
  • Mem Bus: 320 Bit (x2)
  • Core: GK110 (x2)

"If NVIDIA were to release this GPU, we could expect the high-end to really light up, blowing away all of the things AMD has tried to build up with its new Hawaii-based R9 290X GPU."

Official release is expected around February.

 

This video card is going to push new limits of gaming perfomance. It seems like it's going to more powerful than AMD's latest project but price might be two times higher.

 

Share your thoughts.

Meh - who cares. IMHO only single-GPU cards are worthwhile. Double-GPU cards suffer from all of the SLI-related problems.

New Geforce cards doesn't have any SLI problems, only issue is noise. I doubt you will be able to get good framerate at 5760x1080 with single GPU videocard.

Micro stuttering, high temperatures, high power consumption and noisy fans on dual-GPUs are not as bad nowadays as it used to be, but I wouldn't say those problems are history. Not to mention that still not all games support more than one graphics core. I don't think I will ever need nor use multi-GPU systems, since a High-End single-GPU is more than enough, in my opinion, given that I only play on a Full-HD monitor. And I don't consider to play on more than one monitor, either. It's just pointless to me.

^ this, exactly. Things are getting better, but SLI/Crossfire is still far from being perfect.

Nvidia might ask a premium price for it for something like the problems that are still not history. (What Andreas explained)

Dual GPU... What is it good for? Not many games supports SLi/CF.

Most games do support SLI/CF. Not right after the release though.
