Inno3D GTX 780 Ti iChill Ultra DHS Features Hand-picked GPUs

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 10 comments

Inno3D's GTX 780 Ti iChill Ultra DHS Edition comes with handpicked GPUs.

Inno3D has built a new graphics card – the GeForce GTX 780 Ti iChill DHS. This card is not only very solidly built, but the DHS part in the name actually serves a very interesting purpose.

DHS, as defined by Inno3D, stands for Double Hand Selected. What the company means with this is that the GPUs themselves are hand-picked, twice, to get the best performing parts that overclock to the greatest numbers. It'll cost an extra penny or two, but if you take the plunge you can be certain that you've got yourself a good overclocker.

Out of the factory the card comes clocked at 1085 MHz, along with a boost clock of 1150 MHz. Memory is clocked at an effective speed of 7.2 GHz. That said, the company also mentioned that the GPU can likely be overclocked to over 1300 MHz.

Cooling is taken care of by the company's triple-fan Herculez X3 Ultra cooler, which can provide a rather beastly amount of cooling power.

Unfortunately, the card won't be coming to the U.S. Instead, it's available exclusively through Overclockers UK for £619.99, which roughly translates to a rather shocking $1,040.

    This will face some tough competition from the Evga Gtx780ti K|ngp|n, which I believe is a bit cheaper and is also cherry picked. Plus its been designed by Kingpin and TiN.

    I guess considering that "non-hand picked" 780ti's go for $700, what's an extra $300 to ensure you get the cream of the crop? If you're looking for a single card rig of course.

    "Double hand" selected could still be a single pick. We do have two hands, after all.

    You forget that the EU has a 19-25% VAT included in the price, as well as other taxes. Non vat price is likely 800$

    You'd have to be a chump to buy a new high end Nvidia card right now with Maxwell upper end cards right around the corner. Based upon what the 750/750Ti have shown, the 8-Series are going to smoke the 770+ series.

    Ok, keep waiting to build that new rig... by the time Maxwell is out, the next new thing will be right around the corner. And you don't want to be a chump, do you? Just wait for the card after the next one!

    I was hoping for 200 dollar GTX 670's after this new run of cards. Unfortunately they all just kinda disappeared instead of going down past 260ish. Not to mention AMD's cards are nearly impossible to get for MSRP due to GPU BitCoin mining... god I can't wait for THAT fad to be done with...What scares me the most at the moment is Nvidia (Intel is doing it too) slowly moving the price of high end cards higher. 680's were 450-500 bucks, now 780's start at 500 and they the 3rd fastest current gen card... The whole market is messed up at the moment.

    At this price point, might as well cough up an extra ~£170 and get a Titan Black.

    Cheapest 780Ti here (UK) is more like the equivalent of $800+.
