Second GTX 780 for CUDA programming

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm running an Intel i7 4790 with 16 gigs of RAM and a GTX 1050ti. I do not game on this machine and wont be starting anytime soon. I started using my GPU for CUDA programming and deep learning and it just isn't enough. I am on a low budget and I found some refurbished cards on EVGA B-Stock. The 780 is available for $130 which is pretty cheap and might be able to afford it, as its a faster card, is it a good choice in 2019 for that price? I will be running my 1050ti as well.

GTX 780 should have better performance than 1050Ti over all. It has 2304 Cuda Cores and 1050Ti has 768 Cuda Cores.

I don't know which program are you running and if it will scale well between two graphic cards , but yeah. On a paper 780 is faster with more CUDA cores.

Talking about a price , i think it is a bargain for that price, even in 2019. Considering that 1050Ti costs somewhere between 150-160$. I would go for it.

The 780 has more cuda cores but the 1050Ti has faster cuda cores.

 

In reality you won't gain much (if anything) by buying the 780.
