GIGABYTE Announces a Pair of GeForce GTX 780 Graphics Cards

GIGABYTE kicked off its GeForce GTX 780 lineup with a pair of graphics card, the reference-design based GV-N780D5-3GD-B, and the custom-design GTX 780 WindForce OC (GV-N780OC-3GD). The former sticks to NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 863 MHz core, 900 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory; while the WindForce OC leverages a high-performance cooler designed in-house by GIGABYTE, to belt out 954 MHz core and 1006 MHz GPU Boost. Both cards run an NVIDIA-reference PCB. The WindForce 3X cooler uses a refreshing new cooler shroud design, while appearing to retain the fan and heatsink design from its proven predecessors. Both cards are priced around $650.

If I only had the monies to get the Windforce model. Otherwise, I've been really impressed with my GTX670 Windforce thus far.

Wait for Maxwell or VI... with your huge OC, I doubt you'd see THAT big of an improvement for what, double the money you (presumably) spent not long ago...

As you say, waiting for the next gen is the better choice. I guess if I get the itch to upgrade I could always sli two 670's.

I think the Windforce 3X is worth it for lower temps and increased oc. But the stock cooler does have that cool industrial look going for it.
