Gainward Releases GTX 780 Phantom "Goes Like Hell" Edition

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 13 comments

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. Enjoy the teaser released earlier below for more details:

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.

    I'm don't understand why you would pay the extra for an OCed addition... I hit over that on reference cooler.

    If it is a higher binned chip maybe I could understand

    i'm assuming that most overclocks, at least ones like this, are binned chips that can perform higher.
    im also assumeing that the coolers on overclocked chips are a bit better than standard reference.
    granted im also willing to also take a lower clocked chip over a higher clocked one so they spit out less heat.

    now with that said, what moron named it "goes like hell"
    they should be fired
    i have never heard anything, besides bat out of hell, that sounds like it performs fast.
    have you ever thought, "runs like hell" and thought it was a good thing?

    Wow that's really dumbing down the nomenclature. Should we expect the GTX xxx "Hulk Smash" edition any day now.

    Goes like Hell... shouldn't that mean it runs incredibly hot and makes you suffer for all eternity? ;)

    Now if only they would go back to selling cards in North America... Owned a Gainward Golden Sample a while back and it was definitely worth the money.

    The GTX780 has a very good reference cooler. So I agree with you in some sense.

    Alidan, the term "Goes Like Hell" has a history that is far older than you.

    I think it is awesome that they called it that. The GLH and GLHS were awesome little cars.

    googled GLH, and all it popped up was Shelby GLHS
    its about as old as me, and considering the first time i heard it runs like hell was while a description my parents used to talk about a car, saying goes like hell sounds really REALLY stupid.
