Summary: Let's start by saying the gtx 780 is an awesome card. ZOTAC is not awesome. I got this card as part of a gift. Immediately upon tut binging it on there was a little fan rattle that quickly turned into the fan destroying itself and I had to shutdown to say the card. ZOTAC refuses to rma because the last two disgusts in the serial number are smudged. I even offered to buy a replacement heatsink...
Summary: I bought the card from another vendor but I would like to drop a review because I think Zotac has delivered a very good product at a very competitive price. Runs super cool, under 30 C idle and stays under 60 C while under 100% load. To my surprise when I play BF 4 the card is automatically boosted to 1045mhz which is great.
Pros: Quiet, Runs Cool, Great Price/Performance ratio if you can get it under 500$
Cons: Nvidia could include a few more games for a card of this price, No backplate but obviously this is not a really a con since you are not paying a premium price for this card (as a matter of fact this is the cheapest GTX 780 at the moment).
Summary: I caught this card on sale before Christmas for $499.99. I upgraded from a GTX 670 and the GTX 780 is leaps and bounds above the 670. I have a fairly small case, so this was the only card that would fit of all the other 780's out there. There are some EVGA cards that are 13.5" long which would probably only fit in a full tower. I would have preferred to buy MSi or EVGA since they overclock better and have better software included, but none of them would fit in my case.
Summary: I usually buy previous-gen GPUs to save money and make sure I get a good performance/price ratio. This time around, I went "crazy" and got two of these for SLI. The performance increase from the 570 to one 780 was about 200%. I am not kidding when these in SLI completely smoked the 570. Where 3dmark11 did 5fps with the 570 in some sections, the 780s pushed out 60fps.
Summary: What can I say about this video card that you probably haven't already read somewhere? This thing is an absolute monster and will chew apart anything you throw at it. I purchased two of these for SLI to run across 3 monitors (5760x1080) and the performance is amazing. It's a bit pricey, but you're basically getting 10% less performance out of the box as a Titan which is a $1,000 GPU.
Summary: Runs every game on max settings @ 1080p including the newest releases. When the price goes down, I'm gonna consider picking up another one and run a SLI configuration. Either than, or I'll use it as my PhysX card, and my new card - which will probably be a Titan Black - will be the main. Apparently 3GB of VRAM is the minimum for next gen titles running at 1080p @ max settings. Anyways, I highly recommend this card if you don't mind the Zotac cooler.
Summary: I put it in my mac pro 2008 and it run right out the box! Only the boot screen dont appear normal for a non mac card but for the rest everything works perfectly! Really a good card for that price!
Excerpt: За такую цену ожидал большей производительности. К примеру, в связке с I7 4770 на чипсете Z87, в бенчмарке 3DMark11 на высших настройках результат X4853 попугая. Из них Графика 4491, Физика 10373, Комбинированный 5479, FPS 24,6; 23,16; 22,20; 13,17 и т.д. Не густо, прямо скажем. И это еще при разгоне до 960 Мгц в базе. Брал именно референсную, из-за необходимости в тихой карте с выдувом наружу. Полностью себя оправдала.
Pros: Тихая, холодная, производительная, красивая (яркость светящейся надписи GEFORCE GTX можно настроить по температуре, оборотам вентилятора, и просто мигания). Есть разгонный потенциал.
