Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 3 GB Graphics Card Review: +30% Everywhere
Good thing you are reading Xbitlabs now. You will know from news/rumors that new GPUs are coming. There is no way your 580 will last until GTX980 if you mean 980 to be Volta (2016).
400 Euro for a GTX580 in January 2012 is a big time rip-off. Do you not follow the GPU industry closely?
Your upgrading strategy is also all wrong. It's a lot better to buy 200-250 euro GPUs and resell them, recouping most of the cost and reinvesting that $ into a new generation, rather than to buy a 400 euro GPU and keeing it for 5-6 years.
I just want to buy a fast card as a good deal.
What I would have want to read is:
+30% performance, same launch price than a GTX 680, GTX 680 gets a -20% price drop and Titan gets a -20% price drop.
680's would have sold out in days, 780 would have sell like crazy and Nvidia would have win back it's honor.
After reading this, I took my Radeon 7970 out of its case, cleaned the fans, gave it a big hug, thank myself for the good investment and put it back in the case with a smile on my face.
Nvidia's still providing the "smoother" gaming experience, anyone owning both Radeon & Nvidia cards know what I'm talking about, but in the end, their price/performance ratio makes it hard to pick them.
I think you meant "faster than the GeForce GTX 680"
