    Phoronix: NVIDIA Introduces $400 GeForce GTX 770 GPU

    To join the GeForce GTX TITAN and GTX 780 as the newest high-performance NVIDIA GPUs, rolled out this morning was the GeForce GTX 770. NVIDIA has introduced the GTX 770 as a new high-performance graphics card that's priced at $399 USD...

    Features of this new graphics card include a 1046MHz base core frequency with 1085MHz Boost frequency, 1536 CUDA cores, 2GB of GDDR5 memory, and other modern Kepler functionality like GPU Boost 2.0, 3D Vision, TXAA, SHIELD Ready, and supports OpenGL 4.3.
    Yeah, 1536 "crippled" CUDA cores, to force you to buy a $1000+ Tesla if you want to play with CUDA. Fuck you NVIDIA. AMD is going to crush you.

      AMD isn't a good option for linux, slow drivers, eternals bugs, opengl bugs etc etc...

        Put down the crack pipe.

          GPU prices are through the roof. Both from AMD as well as NVidia. Remember when the flagship cards used to cost around 400 dollars and the high-end models were going for about 300? Now we get an upper-end card for 400, the high-end one for 700 and the flagship card to a thousand.

          No, thank you.

          And there goes the theory that competition helps with prices. Unless of course this means that there actually is no competition.

            They will charge what the market will pay.

            At the end of the day they still have to make money. If they charge a million dollars and have no buyers, they lose money big-time. So they can't just set the prices arbitrarily.

              Nice! Now waiting for a decent 760 or 760 Ti with a nice price-tag, so that it makes sense for me to make the change.

                I don't smoke thanks. They "crippled" their cards when they realized some people were using them for CUDA, like the Blender graphic artists. They even sent a couple of Teslas to the guys who made "Tears of steel" in order to promote those overly expensive cards made by chinese people who earn $5/day. But then they realized the GTX 580 was "too" powerful for the price, that's why the 500 series are MUCH more powerful than the 600 series, this is a fact not a conspiracy theory. So again, FUCK YOU NVIDIA.

                  That "crippling" was a necessary compromise in their new SMX architecture to get the power efficiency they wanted, and it was a wise decision because 99% of GTX buyers are interested in games, not CUDA and certainly not FP64 performance. And "crippled" is a bit of a stretch anyway.

                  And your initial statement implied that you couldn't "play with CUDA" on Kepler cards, which is a joke.

                    No, games need that now. Look at how much better DirectCompute runs on AMD cards. New games use that for stuff like global illumination.

                    Crippling the compute capabilities of the GPU can now hurt games severely.

                      Fermi does not fare better in DirectCompute tasks except with FP64 stuff, which isn't used in games.

                      Conversely NVIDIA has their CUDA-based PhysX solution.

                      There are a lot of OpenCL / DirectCompute tasks that have always been far better on AMD cards, and there are a lot of tasks that are far better with CUDA.

                        This is a gaming graphics card.

                        The exact same thing happened to PSUs; you got an increase in quality over years. The same thing is happening on graphic cards right now.

                          I wonder if the recent price spikes are because they know this is their chance to make a profit with the new consoles coming out. The GTX 400 series and the HD4000 series are still good enough to play modern games, but there's a possibility that with the new consoles, even the Titan or 7990 will just barely keep up. So if they increase the prices of their products, PC gamers will want something that can out-do a console, and with such determination they'll be more inclined to pay extra to achieve that.



                          Also note that tablets and Intel CPUs are catching up in graphics performance. Both AMD and Nvidia need to make their discrete GPUs seem worth getting, so by putting a high price point on it, it lets customers think that they're getting something extra special. That's how fancy restaurants work - put some comforting/descriptive words and a high price tag and suddenly an everyday meal becomes "exquisite".

                            Uh, no. I remember when our flagship cards cost over $2,000.

                            The Titan is aimed more at people who want high-performance double-precision math than it is at gamers, and my $200-ish GTX 660 plays every game I own at high to max settings.

                              What? Radeon 9800 - 300 bucks. X1950XT - 300 bucks. HD4870 - 300 bucks. Get the pattern? The 4870 was vastly superior to the 9800. But it cost the same money. Those were high-end ones. The mid-upper range ones like Radeon 6850 were going for something like 180. Today's equivalent of that range go for double that amount.

                              The Titan is aimed more at people who want high-performance double-precision math than it is at gamers, and my $200-ish GTX 660 plays every game I own at high to max settings.
                              The Titan is aimed at gamers. It's marked and targeted at gamers. And it's bought by gamers.
