Geforce GTX 770 vs Geforce GTX 780

Intro

The Geforce GTX 770 comes with clock speeds of 1046 MHz on the GPU, and 1753 MHz on the 2048 MB of GDDR5 memory. It features 1536 SPUs as well as 128 TAUs and 32 Rasterization Operator Units.

Compare all of that to the Geforce GTX 780, which makes use of a 28 nm design. nVidia has set the core speed at 863 MHz. The GDDR5 memory works at a speed of 1502 MHz on this specific card. It features 2304 SPUs as well as 192 Texture Address Units and 48 Rasterization Operator Units.

Power Usage and Theoretical Benchmarks

Power Consumption (Max TDP)

Geforce GTX 770 230 Watts
Geforce GTX 780 250 Watts
Difference: 20 Watts (9%)

Memory Bandwidth

Theoretically speaking, the Geforce GTX 780 should perform quite a bit faster than the Geforce GTX 770 in general. (explain)

Geforce GTX 780 288384 MB/sec
Geforce GTX 770 224384 MB/sec
Difference: 64000 (29%)

Texel Rate

The Geforce GTX 780 is much (more or less 24%) more effective at anisotropic filtering than the Geforce GTX 770. (explain)

Geforce GTX 780 165696 Mtexels/sec
Geforce GTX 770 133888 Mtexels/sec
Difference: 31808 (24%)

Pixel Rate

If using high levels of AA is important to you, then the Geforce GTX 780 is superior to the Geforce GTX 770, by a large margin. (explain)

Geforce GTX 780 41424 Mpixels/sec
Geforce GTX 770 33472 Mpixels/sec
Difference: 7952 (24%)

Please note that the above 'benchmarks' are all just theoretical - the results were calculated based on the card's specifications, and real-world performance may (and probably will) vary at least a bit.

Memory Bandwidth: Memory bandwidth is the maximum amount of data (in units of megabytes per second) that can be transferred across the external memory interface in a second. It is worked out by multiplying the card's interface width by the speed of its memory. If it uses DDR memory, it should be multiplied by 2 again. If DDR5, multiply by 4 instead. The better the memory bandwidth, the better the card will be in general. It especially helps with AA, High Dynamic Range and higher screen resolutions.

Texel Rate: Texel rate is the maximum amount of texture map elements (texels) that can be applied in one second. This figure is worked out by multiplying the total texture units of the card by the core clock speed of the chip. The better the texel rate, the better the card will be at texture filtering (anisotropic filtering - AF). It is measured in millions of texels processed per second.

Pixel Rate: Pixel rate is the most pixels that the graphics card could possibly write to the local memory in a second - measured in millions of pixels per second. Pixel rate is worked out by multiplying the number of colour ROPs by the the card's clock speed. ROPs (Raster Operations Pipelines - sometimes also referred to as Render Output Units) are responsible for outputting the pixels (image) to the screen. The actual pixel output rate also depends on lots of other factors, most notably the memory bandwidth - the lower the memory bandwidth is, the lower the potential to reach the max fill rate.

the 780 is shit, GG
sonarctica says:
GG, worst reason ever, i bet you are a AMD sheep and that's the reason why complain for nothing.
sheep says:
GG, you don't know sheep about it 780 is a titan killer
IT says:
Huge mistake in the page. thermal design power (TDP) is not power consumption is heat generated by the device.
IT says:
If you want to learn about TDP, I would recommend Linus Fast as possible videos.
