Based on the architecture that was used to build the GeForce GTX Titan graphics card, NVIDIA has just officially announced the second graphics card to feature the GK110 GPU called GeForce GTX 780. As the name implies, It is also the first GeForce 700 series desktop GPU to be released into the market.
Running at a clock speed of up to 900MHz, the new GeForce GTX780 is said to offer up to 70-percent more performance than GeForce GTX 580 and 42-percent more than GeForce GTX 680. Apart from being packed with 2304 CUDA cores (384 less than GTX Titan) and 3GB 384-bit GDDR5, the new GeForce GTX 780 also supports the dynamic GPU Boost 2.0 as per GTX Titan.
The new graphic card also mark the arrival of an all-new feature by NVIDIA called adaptive temperature controller that helps to minimize unwanted fan speed fluctuations which supposedly leads to reduced noise when the card is in operation. While it is permanent feature and users are not able to disable it, they still able to control fan speed and fan performance curves through third-party performance tweaking software as usual.
Priced at around RM 1970 (USD 649), the Geforce GTX 780 is available from NVIDIA’s add-in-card partners right away in the form of reference design at the time being but users can expect to see custom design for them within a month or so. For further information, head on to www.nvidia.com.
