Futuremark 3DMark Fire Strike

Fire Strike has two benchmark modes: Normal mode runs in 1920x1080, while Extreme mode targets 2560x1440. GPU target frame buffer utilization for normal mode is 1GB and the benchmark uses tessellation, ambient occlusion, volume illumination, and a medium-quality depth of field filter. The more taxing Extreme mode targets 1.5GB of frame buffer memory and increases detail levels across the board. Extreme mode is explicitly designed for CrossFire / SLI systems. GT 1 focuses on geometry and illumination, with over 100 shadow casting spot lights, 140 non-shadow casting point lights, and 3.9 million vertices calculated for tessellation per frame. And 80 million pixels are processed per frame. GT2 emphasizes particles and GPU simulations. Tessellation volume is reduced to 2.6 million vertices and the number of pixels processed per frame rises to 170 million.


EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC w/ ACX 3DMark Fire Strike Details

3DMark Fire Strike tells essentially the same story as the Unigine benchmark on the previous page. In these tests, the EVGA GeForce GTX 770 SC with ACX cooling once again outruns the reference GeForce GTX 770 and Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition, but the GeForce GTX 780 remained well ahead.

Lol Neil, you would be correct except its the whole PC market :P

I just wanna see if AMD goes for the best card period or best value card. Considering I have no desire to run Crysis 3 on ultra maxed out settings (not saying I wouldn't enjoy it if I had the system to do it) I look for cards that will run my games to where they looks good to me which is atleast 1080p.

I just bought a pair of EVGA GTX-680s from a friend of mine. He charged me $380.00 each for them, but also threw in a 240GB SSD too.

They are each in a i7-2600K system and both systems work as well as I would want. I'm set for a while.

I did put them together in just one of the PCs for a few days,......then I ran a few benches. It was stellar, but I'd rather have two high performing systems than one mega-fast box.

That is pretty good deal man. $380 is a good deal for one card but throwing in an SSD is icing on the cake. I like the 7850 I got currently, it runs everything I play at high settings. Really the only thing holding back my PC is the first gen i7 revision C0 I have currently. Still does well but lag is an issue sometimes when it come to CPU intensive programs. Reliability has been great though since it was bought in 09. I almost traded up for a 2600k but I didn't want to buy a new mobo.

It's crazy to buy a TITAN when you can overclock the 780. It'll have similar performance as the TITAN but at a way lower price.

Nvidia has really been kicking up the competition in the GPU market. Best part is the consumers are getting more bang for their buck by AMD and Nvidia. It finally seems they are making new strides in technology by both companies.
