MSI Makes 'Lite Edition' of its GTX 780 Lightning
MSI unleashes its GTX 780 Lightning LE.
MSI's GTX 780 Lightning has been on the market for a while now, and to spike a little extra life into the series MSI is now launching a Lite Edition, or 'LE,' version of the card.
The hardware on the GTX 780 Lightning LE is as good as much of the hardware of the non-LE version, with the exception of the card's clock speeds. The GPU is clocked at 889 MHz, and will boost up to 941 MHz. For reference, the non-LE GTX 780 Lightning is clocked at 980 MHz and will boost up to 1033 MHz.
On the card, users will find the new TriFrozr cooler, as well as a dual-BIOS (one of which hopefully removes various restrictions, like the non-LE card), a 16+3 phase VRM circuit, and 3 GB of GDDR5 memory which runs at the reference 6.0 GHz.
