Leadtek Rolls Out the GeForce GTX 780 Hurricane III

Leadtek rolled out the GeForce GTX 780 Hurricane III graphics card. The card combines a reference-design NVIDIA PCB with the company's homebrew Hurricane III cooling solution, which facilitates a small factory overclock, of 876 MHz core, and 928 MHz GPU Boost, compared to 863/900 MHz NVIDIA reference clock speeds. The memory is left untouched at 6.00 GHz. The cooler uses a large aluminium fin stack, to which heat drawn directly from the GPU is fed by a number of copper heat pipes, and ventilated by three fans, two of which are 74 mm, and one (center) 85 mm. Power is drawn by a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe connectors. Slated to 20th September, the card is expected to be priced on-par with reference-design cards.

Leadtek. Old memories of high quality products. Difficult to find them today, especially in the Greek market. They just don't exist here.

PC Partner's Nvidia-centric divisions/brands are Zotac and Inno3D (+ Manli for SE Asia/Australasia)

PC Partner makes cards for many brands. Zotac, Inno3D and Manli are just PCP's own brands.

The card is clearly of current PCP design. Compare it to Inno3D HerculeZ and you'll see.

Or just take a look at this Manli GTX 780 Ultimate http://manli.com/en/product/geforce-gtx780-ultimate

PC Partner may well the card, but your original answer could be taken as Leadtek being a subsidiary of PC Partner (maybe wording your answer as "PC Partner design" would have clarified what you intended), which it obviously isn't in much the same way that PC Partner make all reference AMD cards (and Foxconn making reference Nvidia cards) doesn't mean that they own Asus, Gigabyte, HIS etc.

Note I used the terminology "division / brand" in my post. Clearly we are at cross purposes.
