Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Ti pictured, performance confirmed
Gigabyte released some synthetic benchmark results of its new GeForce GTX 780 Ti along with a picture of the box.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 TI (GV-N78TD5-3GD-B)
Gigabyte’s GTX 780 Ti is based on reference design. I was actually hoping that Gigabyte would release overclocked model, as they used to, but unfortunately for that we will have to wait a bit more.
This card is clocked at 876 / 928 / 7000 MHz, which are stock clocks for this model. Card is equipped with 3GB GDDR5 memory and 384-bit bus. The GeForce GTX 780 Ti has 2880 CUDA cores, which basically means we are looking at so-called GTX TITAN ULTRA.
Gigabyte also released some official performance figures. In 3Dmark 11 the GTX 780 Ti is actually slower than GTX 780 GHz edition (0,13% difference) and R9 290X (0,82% difference). Of course these numbers are in the margin of error, but I thought it would be interesting to it mention. In Extreme profile results are similar, but R9 290X stays behind all GeForce GTX cards (but beating vanila GTX 780).
In 3DMark Fire Strike, the difference becomes more visible. The GTX 780 Ti is 2,4% faster than R9 290X and 18,9% faster than R9 290. All previous GeForce models are slower than GTX 780 Ti.
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti will be released in two days for the price of $699.
