It has been little more than three months since NVIDIA launched their GeForce GTX 780 with great success. The card uses the same Kepler GK110 GPU we have seen on the GTX Titan, but with fewer shaders. The new GPU and NVIDIA's new Boost 2.0 algorithm allow the card to offer significant performance improvements over the GeForce GTX 680.

Today, we are reviewing the MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning. As the company's flagship, the graphics card comes with massive cooling power, powerful VRM, and several features for overclockers.

With 980 MHz, the MSI GTX 780 Lightning runs a large overclock out of the box. All these improvements do cost $770 though, making the GTX 780 Lightning the most expensive air-cooled GTX 780 available right now.
