Gigabyte Launches its GTX 780 WindForce 3X OC Rev 2.0

By - Source: Newegg.ca | B 5 comments

Gigabyte has updated its GTX 780 WindForce 3X OC Edition to Rev 2.0 which now features two 8-pin PEG power connectors.

Gigabyte has quietly launched a revision to its flagship GTX 780 WindForce 3X OC edition graphics card that now bears the model number GV-N780OC-3GD 2.0.

The updated model has retained the vast majority of its predecessor’s features including the 28 nm GK110 GPU, a 954 MHz / 1006 MHz clock rate, 3 GB of memory and a WindForce 3X cooler.

It seems that Gigabyte’s only changes have been to replace the original card’s one 8-pin + one 6-pin power connectors with two 8-pin PEG connectors on the GV-N780OC-3GD 2.0. Though it is likely that this was intended to provide overclockers with additional headroom, this is just our speculation since Gigabyte hasn’t provided any formal comment on the change.

    Nothing surprising about Tom's being a bit late on the news!

    For the GTX 760s, the Rev 1 was good ol' windforce 3x. Rev 2 was a different cooler, with one less heatpipe. Don't lemme down terabyte. I mean. gigabyte.

    Further changes are the 10 phase power design (8+2). Rev.1 uses the reference design...
