NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Steams Ahead On Linux
Phoronix: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Steams Ahead On Linux
As some good news for the Linux graphics community after discovering the AMD Radeon R9 290 is currently a big disappointment on Linux (likely due to the Linux Catalyst driver not being kept up as well as the Windows Catalyst version), I was testing the GeForce GTX 780 Ti along with some other new NVIDIA GPUs and it's been a breeze. The GeForce GTX 780 Ti in particular has been a beauty on Linux and is the focus of today's Linux hardware review.
Pricing doesn't sound right
I think the site you checked must have listed the card wrong as everywhere I've checked it is the GTX 780 (Non Ti) which is priced just over $500 USD and the price of the Ti version is $700.
At the time of writing, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti is retailing for just over $500 USD while the GeForce GTX TITAN is still command a one thousand dollar price tag. On the AMD Radeon side the R9 290 is going for just above $400 USD and the flagship R9 290X is selling for $550 and up.
