Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 780 Ti GHz Edition Spotted
Gigabyte's GTX 780 Ti GHz edition has been spotted, and it has a massive factory overclock.
A lot of manufacturers like to take high-end graphics cards, making them even more powerful by slapping large coolers on them and giving them a big factory overclock. Gigabyte's GTX 780 Ti GHz edition is the latest to hit the mill, and it is quite impressive.
For starters, the card features a massive factory overclock of 1085 MHz that is impressive by itself, but in addition, that is the base frequency – it'll boost up to a jaw-dropping 1150 MHz. The card's memory runs at 7.0 GHz. To put into perspective how fast this is, Nvidia's reference speeds are 875 base and 928 under boost.
To cool the card, Gigabyte has used the WindForce 3X cooler as well as an attractive backplate with the text "GHz Edition" printed on it.
There was no word on when the card would hit shelves or what it would cost, but we think it's fair to say that we can expect a notable premium over reference cards.
