Palit Joins the Fray With 6GB GeForce GTX 780 Graphics Card

After EVGA made its announcement, Palit has also announced that it will be bringing the world a 6 GB variant of the GTX 780 graphics card.

The unit will be a JetStream branded model, and as such, it will feature the company's triple-fan cooler. This cooler features two 80 mm fans that spin clockwise, along with a single 90 mm fan that spins counter clockwise. According to Palit, this helps reduce turbulence, and thus noise.

The GPU aboard the card is clocked at a base frequency of 902 MHz, though the company gave no word on the boost frequencies. If it sticks to the same boost frequency as the standard GTX 780 JetStream card (with 3 GB of GDDR5 memory), it will have a boost frequency of 954 MHz. The memory is clocked at the reference frequency of 6.0 GHz.

The company gave no word on pricing or availability just yet.

    I'd rather wait for 800 series.

    When does Maxwell release? I want an 880GTX already. But if maybe they had a 780Ti for under 800 bucks I'd consider biting, and that is a huge maybe.

    A 780Ti with 6GB of VRAM that is.

    I don't think the 382 bus speed is going to properly facilitate full use of 6gb ram amd didn't go for 510 or whatever for nothing. Amd cards push better frame rates at higher res with larger stock v ram. Nvidia beats them normally at 1900 res.

    Maybe in a month or two, but I would wait for 20 nm since that's what will give it the huge difference, which is in Q4 2014. Worth the wait if you ask me.

    I noticed exactly what you just mentioned Dr.... About the built in irrelevance factor in basically every performance driven item humans can buy. When I look at a recent benchmark chart of GPUs, I wonder why people EVER consider buying new ones back to back or even "tic-tock." The Benchmarks look like a stock driving its own price up by selling you the same piece of Schat over and over. Just like I have an OEM fx-8300 and you guys had to buy the fx-8350... Money, Hoes, Cars, Clothes, .... and Computers... All invent their value out of peoples desire to gain an edge over the next person, or just want the best that is out. Shoot, the fx-6300s can hang with most AMD cpus out and they are years old. Its all in your mind... as long as you get a steady smooth game, you dont need to buy for 4 years. fx8300 3.3 with supposed 4.2 boost12gb ram 1600 mhzevga 760 M5A97 AsusSS 128gb SSD2TB HDD

    6GB? for what exactly? If you game on 1 monitor you need 2GB max... multiple monitors maybe 4GB... 6 is just marketing nothing more. It's like the 8 core CPU for a smartphone.

    I'm going to wait until someone releases a 10GB 780 before I consider buying. I load all sorts of custom texture packs for Skyrim.

    Where my G-sync 2560x1440 monitor at???

    I guess they know new games are coming that will use much more video RAM. Driven by the new console generation.
