Evga Announces Liquid-cooled GTX 780 HydroCopper

Evga has announced the arrival of its HydroCopper version of the GeForce GTX 780 graphics card. The HydroCopper series graphics cards from Evga are always based on the highest-end card from the lineup and feature a water block that is built by Swiftech. Of course, the card cannot be used by itself and needs an existing water cooling loop to remain operational.

Evga has announced two versions: the standard version and the Classified version. It has given us a base clock speed of 980 MHz and a Boost speed of 1033 MHz for the standard versions. The speeds for the Classified HydroCopper GTX 780 still have to be announced. We can expect them to be a bit over the 1.0 GHz mark, though. Included with the cards are matching fittings, so you won't have to cherry pick the ones with a similar color design. They work with 3/8-inch and 1/2-inch tubing.

You also won't be missing out on the glowing logo on the side of the card, although it has been replaced by a glowing logo of Evga instead of a text showing "GTX 780."

The company has given no word on pricing or availability.

    Do you have a good insurance company? Because if you have State Farm, I don't think they will be a good neighbor when your computer hits 200C!:pfff:

    ... I can't believe I'm seriously considering upgrading from an air cooled 670.

    I can't even imagine the price tag. You know its going to be of $900+
    But, I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to replace my WC'd 680 with one.

    Oh look they slapped a sticker on a waterblock they didn't make and put it on an existing graphics card.

  • Going from a 3Gb 580 to one of these should be a huge boost in fps at 2560 x 1600 res.
