NVIDIA today introduced the GeForce GTX 780 GPU, the latest evolution in its elite-class GPUs.
Designed for gaming enthusiasts, the GeForce GTX 780 boasts a powerful Kepler GPU with 2,304 cores and 3GB of high-speed GDDR5 memory -- each 50 percent more than its GTX 680 predecessor.
The GeForce GTX 780 supports NVIDIA's latest array of gaming technologies, including PhysX, SLI and NVIDIA TXAA, while the newest GeForce drivers reduce frame time variations to provide smoother frame delivery and a richer overall experience.
To satisfy gamer demands for greater customization and overclocking options, the GeForce GTX 780 includes NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology, which automatically increases the GPU's clock speeds for enhanced performance, while adding temperature target and fan controls, as well as extra over-voltage headroom and optimizations for advanced water-cooling solutions.
A high-quality cast exterior aluminum frame and high-efficiency vapor chamber cooling -- the most sophisticated thermal solution NVIDIA has created -- contribute to the exotic design of the card.
"The GeForce GTX 780 thermal solution is the most sophisticated we've ever created," said Andrew Bell, vice president of engineering at NVIDIA. "The human ear detects not just sound intensity, but also sudden variations in noise levels. For this reason, we created brand new adaptive temperature controllers to reduce unnecessary fan speed variations and deliver beautifully silent operation. This makes the GeForce GTX 780 an awesome choice for powering enthusiast-class PCs including desktop gaming towers as well as the new breed of sexy, small form-factor PCs."
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 GPU is available now from the world's leading add-in card suppliers, including ASUS, Colorful, EVGA, Gainward, Galaxy, Gigabyte, Innovision 3D, MSI, Palit, PNY and Zotac. Partner participation will vary by region. Pricing is expected to start at $649.
