  1. Jon Peddie Research (JPR) has released its first quarter estimates for the graphics processor market, reckoning the three month period as disappointing for Intel, but overall encouraging for Nvidia and AMD on the desktop. The company’s report tracks both integrated...

    Good news for us PC gamers. I bought two GeForce GTX 670s last year and they're running everything I throw at them now.

    Software drives the hardware market now. If Battlefield 4 requires allot of resources we will see this trend continuing. I know I would buy another card if this is the case.

    Good news. I think AMD will gain on nVidia when they release their 8000 series to tackle the expensive upcoming 780.

    The market segment that the GTX 780 will belong to is insignificant bordering on irrelevant when it comes to unit sales - the same can be said for the GTX 690 and GTX Titan.
    Remember that a higher volume GTX 770 ( a slightly better GTX 680 at $449- see chart at the end of this article), and much higher volume GTX 760 Ti ( a slightly better GTX 670 at $299-359) will drive actual sales higher than any 780 SKUs.

    ASAIA, there is no immediate HD 7970/7950 successor in AMDs immediate future. They (AMD) are on record as saying that Tahiti will be the mainstay of the companies high end offerings for the majority of this year. Suffice to say that the 770 and 760 Ti should offer only a small bump in performance over the existing parts...existing parts that are more expensive than AMDs offerings, offer a equal/less performance (how much depends on what value you place on DirectCompute/OpenCL) yet still sell in greater numbers despite not offering a swag of game vouchers.

    Hmm. Well said. The 7970 is almost equivalent in core count to the upcoming 780. It will ultimately come down to ROPs and TMUs and drivers I guess since both will have 3GB of GDDR5 on a 384bit bus. I wonder if the memory clock at 7GHz will be present on the 780, or just the 770.

    Looks like the GTX 780 is saddled with the same memory clock as the GTX 680/670/660 Ti/650 Ti Boost.
    A lot of sites/leaks are now singing the same tune: 863 Core, 902 boost, 6008 effective memory, which with my shaky math works out to be:
    Peak pixel fillrate: 41424 MPix/sec ( or 43296 MP/sec under boost) - assuming 48 ROPs (32000/33600 for the 7970GE)
    Peak texture fillrate: 165696 MTex/sec (or 173184 MP/sec under boost) - assuming 192 TMUs (128000/134400 for the 7970GE)
    Peak GFLOPs single precision (MADD) : 3977 GFLOP (or 4156 under boost)- assuming 2304 cores (4096/4300 for the 7970GE)
    Peak bandwidth: 288.384Gb/sec ( pretty much identical to the 7970GE's 288 Gb/sec)

    2304 cores*. Basically, yeah.
