Geforce GTX 780 Ti to end up faster than Titan

xxxgamer Share 508

We have heard from multiple independent sources that the upcoming Geforce GTX 780 Ti will end up faster than the Titan, and obviously significantly faster than original Geforce GTX 780 card.

The Radeon R9 290X is giving Nvidia’s Titan a run for its money, at least in its noisy Über mode, but apparently 780 Ti can put some distance between these cards.

Since the GTX 780 currently sells for $649 in most US etail stores and in Europe it costs just over €500, we can only assume that GTX 780 TI performance will come at a high price, but with a Titan like cooler that we saw showcased at Nvidia’s Montreal The way it's meant to be played, the card could end up really quiet.

Let's not forget UK etail where GTX 780 sells for average £499.

Free-to-play industry veteran Tadhg Kelly formally of Jawfish will join Ouya as its new free-to-play expert.

Escalating costs has become a major issue , but the good news is that he has a lot of problems to work on at Ouya.

Ghost PC specs announced

The official specs to run Call of Duty Ghosts have been confirmed by Infinity Ward.

They are not really much different than those rumored by Nvidia a littler earlier this month.

Still the required specifications left us scratching our heads a little bit.

The need for a 64bit OS and 6GB of RAM seem more than a little weird.

It is a given that most people that are going to play this game have more than 6GB of RAM and are likely running a 64bit version of Windows 7 or Windows 8, but we can only guess that these requirements are to help eliminate support headaches by adopting a standard platform bar for PC players.

Minimum System Requirements for Call of Duty: GhostsOS: Windows 7 64Bit / Windows 8 64BitCPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8200 2.

66 GHZ / AMD Phenom X3 8750 2.
