Shortly after its specifications sheet leak, pictures of a reference GeForce GTX 780 Ti (which aren't renders or press-shots) surfaced on ChipHell Forums. The pictures reveal a board design that's practically identical to the GTX TITAN and GTX 780, with the "GTX 780 Ti" marking on the cooler. The folks over at ChipHell Forums also posted five sets of benchmark results, covering various 3DMark tests, Unigine Valley, Aliens vs. Predator 3, Battlefield 3, and Bioshock: Infinite, on a test-bed running Core i7-4960X at 4.50 GHz, and 16 GB of quad-channel DDR3-2933 MHz memory. Given its specifications, it comes as no surprise that the GTX 780 Ti beats both the GTX TITAN, and R9 290X, and goes on to offer performance that's on par with dual-GPU cards such as the GTX 690, and HD 7990. For a single-GPU card, that's a great feat.
