GeForce GTX 780 Ti Round Up: EVGA, Gigabyte, MSI

Unigine Valley

.Unigine's Valley benchmark is a GPU stress-testing tool. It has a high level of detail and uses cutting edge graphics technologies with a dynamic environment. Some of the advanced visual technologies include dynamic sky, volumetric clouds, sun shafts, DOF, and ambient occlusion.

It took a few benchmarks to get there, but for the first time, EVGA squeezes ahead of Gigabyte despite the clockspeed disadvantage, albeit it's only in the minimum framerate recording. It's also within the margin of error, so it's a little tongue-in-cheek that we point this out.

Maybe EVGA's victory in the minimum fps category wasn't an anomaly, after all. Here again EVGA asserts itself just in front of GIgabyte, though Gigabyte still takes the lead in average and maximum framerates.

That's a clean sweep in the minimum fps category for EVGA, which topped Gigabyte at all three resolutions. MSI was able to pull out a tie here in the final round. EVGA also pulled ahead in average framerates.

Again, these numbers are awfully close and within the margin of error. However, Gigabyte's aggressive clockspeeds caused some instability issues in a few of our benchmark runs. While it wasn't in issue in this one, non-crashing errors could be the reason why Gigabyte slipped into second place here even though it's running faster.
