Nvidia unveils GTX 780 Ti

New high-end GPU due for release in mid-November; Shadowplay to capture in 1080p at 60fps and stream in 720p at 60fps.

by

Nvidia has announced the GTX 780 Ti, a new high-end GPU based on its Kepler architecture. The card is due for release in mid-November, although no pricing was announced.

The company also revealed that its upcoming ShadowPlay capture software--which was originally slated for launch in the summer--can now stream directly to streaming service Twitch at 720p resolution and 60 frames per second. Nvidia claims that ShadowPlay puts little to no strain on a player's CPU, by using the GPU directly to encode video.

In a demonstration, Nvidia showed Splinter Cell: Blacklist being streamed live, with the game maintaining a consistent frame rate throughout. Players can overlay a webcam video using the Shadowplay software, and record footage locally in 1080p at 60fps.

Shadowplay is due for release on October 28.

seems like when AMD thinks they may get an edge, Nvidia releases something just a bit better and shows they are still the best.  They are the Intel of gpu makers.

Ooh..so shiny. I wonder how it will fare against a titan and how cheaper it will be.


Considering of buying one of these for my next upgrade.

As a video editor, this looks appealing.

i can stream battlefield 3 (much heavier than splinter cell) and " maintaining a consistent frame rate throughout" with my 170 dollar graphics card, so why should i buy this to stream videos?

Hows this compare the GTX Titan I wonder?

If anyone is planning to get a 700 series card...can I have the $100 NVidia shield coupon? :)

Why can't Nvidia name their cards so people will know where it stands in performance?  What the hell does Ti even stand for?

Just give us ShadowPlay. You can keep the card.

It looks hot. -I'm holding off for 16GB cards though.

I currently try to stream in 1080p60 (do-able in certain cases, but I find I have to drop down to 1080p45 in some titles).


720p60 is child's play on even a mainstream level PC nowadays; sad that NVIDIA doesn't seem to be going for gold, as they say.

If the Ti version is better than the normal 780 I will be quite upset.  Though.. I don't know why it would, since the step up from the 780 is the Titan, and an overclocked 780 can even surpass Titan performance.  Hope this is a bridge between the 770 and 780 for people not as fortunate with finances, since those two cards are in completely different leagues.

Another overpriced GPU to harden the egos of some PC fan boys. What a waste of hard earned money. I own a GTX 570 and I can still max out most games. I don't need a brand new GPU every 6 months at such a hefty price for just an extra 2 or 3 frames. Nice try Nvidia, no thanks.

why graphic cards does not have upgradable memory? if we need more graphic memory we just buy a memory extension to have more performance .or over clocking GPUs to considerable range of frequencies and not little one? I think that companies don't think about who can't buy the new graphic cards but only their own profit. for that, i have to buy a pS4 or Xbox1 that last many years and i have my PC for only the applications and internet and Idon't have to panic every 6 months if I heard that my graphic card or RAM  or processor are not adequate to the new games.

@plm3d_basic As said "titanium". Been used since 2000-2001, the first to use this in their name were the GeForce 2 models from what I remember.

@arqe i really doubt it can match Playclaw in any aspect

@DiscGuru101 Wait...what? 16GB GPU's are a loooong way off buddy. If 4GB is now the standard, then 16GB GPU's are at least 3-4 years away if not 5.

@DiscGuru101 i doubt you would need 16gb i have 4gb ram and 3gb of gddr5 on a radeon 7950. i dont know what you are doing it with it but you will generating massive power consumption and heat if you are using all that. or are you just some idiot like many oh big numbers mean better performance. i've never had any problems with games and played most at high to max settings with memory spare.

@kerrman Price is atleast as much as xbone and PS4 combined

@DAOWAce Stream is more connected to CPU , it doesnt matter which GPU you got if you dont have monster CPU. its really just overdoing it for your PC and shortens the life.

@ttp ATI is dead AMD run the show now they have for years i know because i still have old ati drivers for old pc games on my computer and my card chipset is AMD for a 7950.

@starjay009  about time you upgrade then and i buy every 2-3 years every 6 months would gain nothing and theres no way 500 series is going to play everything in max. i know because i have 7950 similar performance and better in areas and i can't get max in everything and get it to run smooth. yours is a q4 2010 card games have come along way in 3 years. the last card i had Radeon HD 5870 i that is like mid range now because its that old. i would think about a 770-780 or save for a 800 series next year.

It's true, I have a 560 DCII and it's still packing a punch, but not for long though.BF4 Beta everything on high but textures set on medium for better performance.

@ahmedelbeji What is it with this console myth that says you have to upgrade every 6 months to keep up?  It typically takes a component three YEARS before I consider upgrading.

Of course, you do have to take the time to find out what you're doing.  That's often the real difference between a PC gamer and a console gamer.  PC gamers are enthusiasts that spend the time to find out just how things work in a game machine.  Console gamers just want to keep it simple.

@ahmedelbeji Every 6 months?  Tech moves fast but not that fast.  You know how a "pS4 or Xbox1 [would] last many years,"  that ain't cause they've got magic keep up with new games tech.  If you've got a PC that's roughly equivalent to a PS4 or xbone, you've got a machine that will last roughly until they the xbone and PS4 die.

@ahmedelbeji You're a dummy, graphics memory is not what makes a card more powerful than another, it only helps for more monitors. Plus the further away the ram is from the other components on a card (having upgradable ram) , the hotter and slower it will perform. On top of that ram for gpu's is not retrofitable between cards, they pretty much make unique ram for each one. And clock speed doesnt mean much for a gpu, the thing that they change and that matters is the architecture. Plus they only give a certain range of overclocking because otherwise there would be a shit tonne of angry people with ruined cards. Why don't you think before you open your mouth.

@iMpLuX @DiscGuru101 He must be trolling, most video cards still use 2-3gb max. At the rate we are going 16gb graphics cards are at least 10 years away. There is no application whatsoever that would require that much vram. Not even triple 4k monitors supersampled @ twice the resolution with 32xAA would require that much vram. And there wouldn't be anywhere near enough processing power anyways.

hey relax raggi it was just an idea to tell to the companies that thinking of upgradable cards is the dream of poor people

@Dannystaples14 I don't understand why they would be morons for future proofing their systems with a good graphics card and wanting to play their games looking their best I for one haven't built a pc nor do I know that much about them but I am going to build my own pc and I don't want to have to be constantly upgrading my pc when new games come out I wanna buy good stuff now so its good to play new games for a long time to come so excuse me if in ur eyes I am also a 'moron'

@RS13 @fredyellowone @zerofrust @starjay009 Yeah except if you have an old graphics card and a 550 or up to a 600 series will suffice for most games pretty much indefinitely, why would you go for that much overkill at this sort of a price?

I always used to think that you needed a top end graphics card like this or the Titan to play most games flat out but it is bullshit. The only people who buy Titans are morons who want to play everything at above 1080 resolution.

When in reality I have just as much fun playing on my console than I do on my PC. So why would I want this whether I could afford it or not? There is having enough money and there is having so much money you can afford to waste it. You are still wasting the money.

@fredyellowone @zerofrust @starjay009 Depends what you have.  If you have a GTX 770, then yeah it's probably a waste.  But if you have a really old graphics card or don't have a dedicated graphics card at all.  Also, it depends on what you do with the old one.  If you sell the old one at nearly what you bought for it, then even upgrading from a good, recent graphics card isn't a huge problem.

@fredyellowone @zerofrust @starjay009 

For who? for you probably but  Like i said it's relative to someone budget and current hardware.

That's like someone telling me that a ps4 cost 4 time the minimum wage in Cuba.To them that would be a fcking waste to you it would seem affordable.
