Introduction



NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 780 has been on the market for a little over a year now, offering excellent gaming performance since. In more recent times, NVIDIA released the GTX 780 Ti. Its performance is higher due to its increased shader count, but it also comes at a higher price.

NVIDIA carved the GeForce GTX 780 out of the GK110 by enabling 12 out of 15 streaming multi-processors on the die, which works out to 2,304 CUDA cores. This sets the texture memory unit count to 192, a 50 percent increase over its predecessor's 128. At 384-bit width, the memory bus is the same, and the GPU still packs five graphics processing clusters and comes with 48 ROPs, which is yet another 50 percent increase. The reference design card we're putting under the knife in this review features 6 GB of GDDR5 memory.



MSI decided to create a GTX 780 with 6 GB VRAM instead of the 3 GB usually found on the GTX 780. The company also has increased the MSI GTX 780 Gaming 6 GB's clock speeds to beyond those of a Titan, which should definitely result in interesting numbers.

With a price of $589, the card retails for around $100 more than a 3 GB GTX 780 and for around $80 less than a GTX 780 Ti.
