NVIDIA Announces the GeForce GTX 780 Graphics Card

NVIDIA announced the GeForce GTX 780, the first addition to its desktop GeForce GTX 700 series. Pictured below, the card is as close as it gets to owning a GeForce GTX TITAN, at two-thirds the price. It's based on the same 28 nm GK110 chip, but configured with 2,304 CUDA cores and 192 TMUs, compared to the 2,688 cores and 224 TMUs of the GTX TITAN. The card retains the 384-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, but holds 3 GB of memory. In that sense, all its key faculties are an exact 50 percent increase over is predecessor, the GeForce GTX 680.

NVIDIA completely recycled the design of GeForce GTX TITAN, down to the PCB and cooler. The only way you can make the two cards out is the lack of memory chips on the GTX 780's back. The card features GPU Boost 2.0, a technology that debuted with the GTX TITAN, boosts clocks and voltage, taking temperatures into account. The GPU core is clocked at 863 MHz, GPU Boost at 900 MHz, and memory at 6.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective). NVIDIA is allowing its partners to launch products with custom design air cooling solutions. Prices should start at $649.99.

As much as I have liked the TwinFrozr (and hated the DCII), I think I want a blower style cooler this time and it doesnt hurt that it looks good.

I've put my order in and Ill just make up the difference in OC myself.
I love the blower cooler. I'm in this for the looks personally, dont like the plasticy coolers. I'm gonna OC to a little over 1ghz and set the custom fan profile, then sit and enjoy reference design :)

So is Titan apparently.... :laugh:




Meh current gen is rubbish, bring on 20nm.
Its a gaming card with double precision compute performance where as the 780 does not. If you got the Titan just for gaming.................well you kind of wasted 1k on a GPU that is capable to do quite a bit more.

Correction: wasted $350, but got 3GB extra, +10% grunt, compute, early access, and e-peen! :toast:
