Gainward has officially announced two new GTX 780 cards: the GTX 780 Phantom and the GTX 780 Phantom GLH.
Earlier Gainward released a teaser clip of its upcoming GTX 780 Phantom card, which gave us a lot of details on the cooler, but didn't tell us anything about the card's technical specifications beyond the fact that it was based on the GTX 780. Now, the company has officially revealed the card and told us (almost) all that we want to know.
The card will be known as the GTX 780 Phantom GLH. The GLH abbreviation stands for "Goes Like Hell." It's odd but fitting for what may arguably be one of the highest factory-clocked GTX 780s yet. The card will feature factory overclocks, with a base clock of 980 MHz, a Boost clock of 1033 MHz, and memory that is clocked at an effective speed of 6.2 GHz. In contrast, Nvidia's reference clocks are 863 MHz base, 900 MHz Boost, and 6.0 GHz memory.
The card will also come out in only a GTX 780 Phantom version (non-GLH). This card will feature a base clock of 902 MHz and a Boost clock of 954 MHz. Memory will remain at the stock 6.0 GHz.
Both the cards will also feature the renown Gainward Phantom cooler. This cooler features a rather peculiar design, where rather than the fans pushing the air through the aluminum fin stack, they pull it through. The cooler's fans are also removable by just the turn of a thumbscrew, possibly making this cooler the easiest air-cooler to maintain to date.

Sadly, Gainward hasn't given us any information on what the graphics cards would cost, nor did it inform us of when they would be coming to shelves.
