A user from the HardwareZone forums has leaked some images of the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning from MSI, and it is an absolutely gorgeous graphics card.
The card will feature the GK110-300-A2 GPU which is packed with 2,304 cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs. Also aboard the PCB, users will find 3 GB of memory, as is standard on GTX 780 graphics cards. So far, there is no information about the factory clock speeds of either the GPU or the memory. The graphics card also has a 20-phase VRM design coupled with the new DrMOS 4, which is more efficient and thus runs cooler than competing power saving solutions.
Of course, one of the things that mustn't go unnoticed is the new cooler, known as the TriFrozr, which features a total of three fans. Two of the fans at both ends of the cooler are larger black fans, while a smaller yellow 92 mm fan rests right in the middle. The yellow fan also has a denser fin arrangement.
MSI has announced that the card will be available starting August 28, though there is no official word on pricing. The HardwareZone forum post revealed a price of $1,000 Singapore dollars, which translates to roughly $780 USD.
man, I'm interested in seeing the max OC on this card. certainly would be interesting. it'll probably cost around $850? but it should take down a stock Titan...
THG how much does MSI pay you?
It also appears to be a triple slot card?
Not sure if serious... It's painfully obvious that it's a dual slot card from the pictures
I wouldn't be so sure. It clearly only has two slot mounts, but the fans and shroud do appear to exceed the dimensions of the second slot mount.
