NVIDIA stops making GeForce GTX 780 Ti, 780, and 770 graphics cards

NVIDIA logoUsually, when a new video card generation debuts, the previous ones still linger in the retail segment for a while, selling mostly thanks to a price advantage over the new and better ones, at least until inventories are depleted.

This is not happening for the Kepler-based GeForce GTX 780 Ti. Indeed, it's not happening for the GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 either.

Instead, NVIDIA has decided to immediately stop making Kepler-based high-end video adapters, instead of gradually phasing them out over the next six months as is usually done.

For the GTX 780 / 780 Ti, it's because the new GeForce GTX 980 is better than them while also featuring a smaller die size, 2 billion fewer transistors, and a lower price ($549 / €549 versus roughly $700 / €700).

Not only that, but the GTX 980 has fewer memory chips and a lighter VRM as well (voltage regulation module).

Because of this, it is clear that the GeForce GTX 980 Maxwell video board will sell at the expense of the others rather than alongside them. There can be no coexistence in this case.

We can only imagine what would have happened if NVIDIA started out with the GM200/GM210 from the onset. The performance difference would have been massive. As it is, the Santa Clara, California-based corporation is holding that chip in reserve for 2015. Maybe it will even produce it on 20nm or 16nm if TSMC manages to move to either of those technologies at last.

The GeForce GTX 770 is being discontinued because the GeForce GTX 980, while at a similar price, is, again, better in every way.

There's only one we know for sure will happen: the GeForce GTX 760 will be killed off as well, next month, because that's when NVIDIA will release the GeForce GTX 960. We're expecting a price of $219 / €219 from that one, since that's what the GTX 760 sells for now, but it might also be lower.

The GPU will probably have the same advantages over the Kepler GK104: smaller size and fewer transistors (and, thus, lower cost of production) while maintaining performance superiority.

We're not sure if the GTX 760 has much chance of scoring many sales in the time it has left, even though its price is better than the average $250 / €250 it bore yesterday (and which is still requested by quite a few retailers even now that the price cut has come in effect).

Haven't you played the beta? I have over 500 hours of bc2. Bf3 doesn't feel at all like it. The <a href="http://iyesryddbx.com">aimnig</a> is different, moving, tactics, weapons behave different. I don't know how you come up with this but i can't see bc2 in this game.

and with screen brhigtness set around 50% the battery actually last longer than the rated time of 7 hours.)Form Factor: The MacBook Pro Retina is smaller & lighter than the standard MacBook Pro. With the Retina model weighing in just under 4.5 lbs and its under 3/4 inches thick (If you want to get technical its .71 inches thick). This laptop is a joy to carry around, it is so elegant looking and lightweight. I had a previous generation 15 MacBook Pro and honestly didn't think pre-delivery I would notice that much of a difference but I was wrong, you definitely can and the best part is the laptop doesn't feel flimsy as you might expect with it being so much lighter and thinner.Heat: Just a short note on the heat the MacBook Pro Retina emits, granted if you are encoding video it is going to get very warm as any laptop will. But one of the most pleasant surprises for me was is how cool the laptop runs under normal usage such as web surfing, email, office apps, it runs much cooler than my previous generation 15 MacBook Pro, also the fans on this machine are dead quiet even in a quiet room. In fact I had to stick my ear up to the laptop to make sure that were even working when I first got it. Considerably less noisy than any laptop I have ever heard.Ports: The machine has 2 Thunderbolt , 2 USB 3.0, 1 HDMI (out), SDXC (SD Card) Slot, Headphone jack.Thunderbolt ports: I did purchase the which worked great, I purchased it mainly to initially backup my SSD faster than using WiFI, not necessary I am just impatient. Plus I like having add-ons that I may never use, not sure it's a guy thing. Thunderbolt is in its infancy and truthfully there just isn't a lot of Thunderbolt devices. However, I am happy Apple was looking toward the future with this laptop and opted to put 2 ports on this machine.USB 3.0: No problems at all with any of my standard USB devices (I.E mouse, printer, etc.) what was extremely impressive was my which was about 7X faster than on my old laptop with USB 2.0 ports. I was blown away how fast it was.HDMI: Thank you Apple, you finally came around and added this. Plug in an HDMI cable to your HDTV and have your laptop screen on your TV as fast as you can plug the cord in.It just works, and you are able to send 1080P right to your TV. Not a lot more than I can say other that it works, and it works easily and flawlessly.SDXC/Headphone: Like above they just work easily and flawlessly. The SD reader was improved over the previous version as I had some troubles with SD cards reading in the past on previous models namely cards not reading the 1st time. This model has read all my cards the 1st time inserted and read every card I have put into it.Other notes: WiFi receiver seems to be improved it reads a stronger signal than my previous generation MacBook Pro.The dual built in microphones are a major improvement they do a superb job in reduction of background noise.The biggest con of this laptop: You will cringe every time you have to use any other laptop again. It's like going from regular TV to HDTV, once you see it you get spoiled and everything else just looks bad. http://yrpegxvb.com [url=http://rkodch.com]rkodch[/url] kdadgsr
