The GeForce GTX 780 6 GB was a graphics card by NVIDIA, launched in September 2013. Built on the 28 nm process, and based on the GK110B graphics processor, in its GK110-301-B1 variant, the card supports DirectX 12.0. The GK110B graphics processor is a large chip with a die area of 561 mm² and 7,080 million transistors. Unlike the fully unlocked GeForce GTX TITAN Z, which uses the same GPU but has all 2880 shaders enabled, NVIDIA has disabled some shading units on the GeForce GTX 780 6 GB to reach the product's target shader count. It features 2304 shading units, 192 texture mapping units and 48 ROPs. NVIDIA has placed 6,144 MB GDDR5 memory on the card, which are connected using a 384-bit memory interface. The GPU is operating at a frequency of 863 MHz, which can be boosted up to 902 MHz, memory is running at 1502 MHz.
Being a dual-slot card, the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 6 GB draws power from 1x 6-pin + 1x 8-pin power connectors, with power draw rated at 250 W maximum. Display outputs include: 2x DVI, 1x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort. GeForce GTX 780 6 GB is connected to the rest of the system using a PCI-Express 3.0 x16 interface. The card measures 267 mm in length, and features a dual-slot cooling solution.

GK110B GPU Notes

L1 Cache is configurable from 16 KB up to 48 KB per SMX

GK110 chips have 5 Rasterizers each capable of 8 pixels per clock and are limited to 40 pixels per clock and because of that it can't feed all 48 ROPs when they all require data at the same time.
Luckily, additional ROPs can be used when for example MSAA is enabled (because it doesn't require additional data from rasterizers, while giving more work to ROPs).
