    There is no way that power consumption reading is correct. It contradicts the other 2 reviews of this card and it just doesn't make sense. Yes the core clock is higher but not 62 watts worth.

    Substantially increasing the core clock also automatically incurs extra voltage, per NVIDIA's GPU Boost specification. A GTX 780 consistently running at 1,100MHz-plus is burning through more voltage compared to the reference card that boosts to only 900MHz or so. But the cooler is up to the task of ameliorating the power-related disadvantages such high frequencies impose.

    A very highly clocked GTX 680 can pull up to 300W of (system-wide) juice.

    Why do the other 2 reviews of this exact card show it only consuming 10w more than the reference? Was going to buy this card now I'm not sure as I want a power efficient system.

    I'm suspecting hexus may have increased the power target in their 'stock' speed benchmarks?

    EDIT - Your review actually shows it using 80w more than reference, not 60. Was comparing it to Titan by mistake.

    compute performance on par with a GTX 480..... so no folding

    This makes TITAN look bad value for money, basically your paying for the extra Vram on a TITAN... I can see this will drive the price down on them ?

    USA retailers are selling the reference card for $649.99, they are only charging an extra $10 for the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX!

    Here in the UK, the cheapest reference card is £549.99, and UK retailers are charging £80+ more for the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Superclocked ACX!

    It's absolutely disgusting that retailers can get away with this here in the UK, I wonder what the Office of Fair Trading would have to say about this anti-competitiveness?

    Check here as one example >> http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...x=-1166&y=-112

    personnally i think the titan and this are really bad for the money. The 780 is around double the price of the 670 and doesnt perform that much better tbh
