EVGA Kicks Off GeForce GTX 780 with Seven Models

The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 marks an evolution in gaming performance - an insanely fast, smooth, and whisper-quiet experience, every time. EVGA is also introducing a brand new cooling design; the EVGA ACX Cooler. This double ball bearing design redefines traditional enthusiast coolers. Starting with a 40% increase in heatsink volume, the EVGA ACX is more efficient at dissipating heat, allowing for 15% lower GPU temperatures. A reinforcement baseplate maintains a straight PCB, and helps lower mosfet temperatures by 7% and memory temperatures by 15%.

EVGA also spent time to ensure that even the fan blades were of the highest quality; with a 700% increase in strength, and 25% lower weight when compared to competitors dual fan designs. This makes the fans 20% more efficient by requiring lower power levels. Of course, EVGA is also using double ball bearing fans which offer a 12 year lifespan; this is 4X longer when compared to competitors! Get pure performance today with the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 with ACX Cooling.

GeForce GTX 780 Pricing Revealed

Ahead of its launch just a little later this week, online retailers appear to be stocking up on NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 780 graphics card. An EVGA-branded card is being offered by distributor SYNNEX to retailers at US $644.44. This is the price that retailers (eg: Newegg, TigerDirect, NCIX, etc.) have to pay distributors per unit. We estimate that after retailers add their margins, the card could be priced anywhere between $650-700. Thankfully, we won't have to wait too long to find out.

The screenshot of the SKU page below also confirms key specifications, such as CUDA core count of 2,304, 3 GB of memory, GPU Boost 2.0 technology, and a design that's nearly identical to the GTX TITAN. The SKU page can't be linked to, since it's non-public, and is visible only on retailers' authentication.

EVGA Unveils ACX Graphics Card Cooler, Possible GTX 700 Launch Date?

NVIDIA's reference-design cooling solutions for its GeForce GTX 690 and GTX TITAN raised the bar with graphics card product-design, especially with the exotic materials, such as magnesium alloys, and vapor-chamber plates used in them, which keep production costs up. With reports of NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 featuring similar reference-design coolers, graphics card manufacturers wanting to try out lower-cost yet higher-performing custom-design cooling solutions, have their tasks cut out: to design coolers that also look good, and make buyers want to pick them over NVIDIA's reference cooler.

EVGA unveiled a CGI teaser of its upcoming high-end graphics card cooling solution, called ACX, which abbreviates Active Cooling Xtreme. From what little the teaser video reveals, the cooler appears to be a sleek, dual-fan, and air-based. Its shroud features a sporty design with pale-gold highlights, and matte black accenting piano black. The cooler uses a pair of fans to ventilate an aluminum fin-stack, but no other physical features were revealed. The name might indicate some kinds of "smart" features that let users monitor, and tinker with the card's cooling better, perhaps even over proprietary software. Interestingly, it won't be long before we find out more. The cooler is said to be unveiled on the 23rd of this month, and unless EVGA plans to launch it with older GTX 600 series GPUs, 23rd could very well be the day the first GTX 700 series product could be unveiled. Find the video after the break.

EVGA Breaks 22K in 3DMark Fire Strike, Sets Four New Records

EVGA and Vince "k|ngp|n" Lucido have once again dominated the 3DMark Fire Strike World Records with a brand new record for every 3DMark Fire Strike category; the newest and by far most demanding benchmark from Futuremark:
  • #1 3DMark Fire Strike (SLI) = 22,054
  • #1 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (SLI) = 11,559
  • #1 3DMark Fire Strike (Single Card) = 14,600
  • #1 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme (Single Card) = 7,308
These records were obtained using the upcoming EVGA X79 Dark motherboard and two EVGA GeForce GTX TITAN cards in SLI. EVGA Precision X 4.0 was also used to overclock the graphics cards. See the full details at the Futuremark 3DMark Hall of Fame.

ASUS ROG Rampage IV Extreme Black Pictured

ASUS is working on a variant of its ROG Rampage IV Extreme motherboard for people who've had enough with the red+black color scheme. The Rampage IV Extreme Black, as the name suggests, dons a largely black appearance, with hints of dark-gray; use of red is reduced to a minimum. Components like alternate DIMM and PCIe slots use shades of gray to contrast black. It is otherwise identical to the original. The Black variant could be ASUS' competitive offering to EVGA X79 Black. Based on Intel X79 Express chipset, the ROG Rampage IV Extreme Black supports Core i7 processors in the LGA2011 package, up to 64 GB of quad-channel DDR3 memory, four-way SLI/CrossFire, and a suite of overclocker-friendly features. There's no word on pricing or availability.

EVGA Unveils GTX Titan LED Controller Software

EVGA unveiled its LED Controller software v1.0.0.11 for GeForce GTX Titan. Similar to the one that works for the GTX 690, the software tinkers with the voltage of the 2-pin connector that powers the glowy GeForce GTX logo on the top of the card. The software gives you either static manual control, or adjusts the logo's brightness according to GPU utilization, clock; or produce a groovy "breathing" effect. The tool is also compatible with older GeForce GTX 690 graphics cards.

EVGA Unveils GTX Titan HydroCopper Signature Series Graphics Cards

Even as every other AIC partner is under strict directions not to modify GeForce GTX Titan board design, NVIDIA pet EVGA released pictures of its upcoming GTX Titan Signature SC HydroCopper graphics card (model: 06G-P4-2795-KR), the first GTX Titan with a full coverage water block pre-installed. Co-developed by Swiftech, EVGA's block uses nickel-plated copper as its primary material, with a secsi black shroud running the card's entire length. In addition to the 7.1 billion-transistor GPU, the block cools memory chips and VRM components on the obverse side of the PCB. The reverse side gets a back-plate. EVGA did not disclose clock speeds, but the SC (super-clocked) brand extension suggests it ships with a factory-overclock. EVGA didn't disclose its price, but we expect it to be around US $1,300.
