New high-end graphics card launches, specs revealed

Nvidia: “Our GTX 780 Ti is faster than AMD’s 290X in every single metric”

The high-end Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics card has now launched in the UK and Nvidia says it’s faster than its closest competitor: the AMD Radeon R9 290X.

An Nvidia spokesperson says the Ti is “faster in every single metric” compared to the 290X, with “the best frame-rates in all of the top games”. 

The Ti claims to be as much as 50 per cent faster than the 290X, with a 20 to 30 per cent speed bump over the 290X on average, with “class-leading” levels of noise and heat and overall gaming experience.

The full GTX 780 Ti specifications are revealed in the picture at the bottom of this article, including memory speed, base clock, boost clock and more.

Nvidia also talked up its ShadowPlay 1080p game capture service, and said the computer performance drop while using the programme is around one or two per cent, compared to other game capture services which it says reduce performance by around 15 to 20 per cent. 

The TDi is priced at £559, and includes three PC games: Assassin’s Creed 4, Batman: Arkham Origins and Splinter Cell Blacklist.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti GPU is available now from add-in card suppliers including ASUS, EVGA, Gainward, KFA2, Gigabyte, Inno3D, MSI, Palit, PNY, Point Of View and Zotac. 

Nvidia announced the 780 Ti last month, in response to AMD’s new R7 and R9 cards which were revealed in September.
