One More Ace Card Up Nvidia’s Sleeve
Remember about two weeks ago when Nvidia dropped the single fastest card bomb? After the GTX 780 Ti from Nvidia cleaned up the benchmark scores, it was thought that they were done, however it seems that Nvidia are still going at it. The source for this news is highly credible–and anonymous–and all you need to know is that the pictures and benchmarks are genuine, and that should be enough to convince us of its existence. Although, these could just be a highly clocked 780 Ti with a modded or custom bios, but I highly doubt it.
This is the GTX 780 Ti GHZ Edition.

It runs, stock out the box, at a blistering base clock of 1085 MHz, which is 210 MHz more than the stock GTX 780 Ti at 875 MHz. And, true to Nvidia’s style, the boost speeds are also quite impressive, going up to 1150MHz which is 222MHz above boost speeds for a stock GTX 780 Ti. The memory speed is still a stock GTX 780 Ti affair, but is no slouch at a properly fast 1750MHz (7000MHz effective).
To put this card’s speed in perspective, the 3DMark 11 benchmark score below is equal to around that of a GTX 690. That. Is. Insane. One GPU on one card. The fact that these benches are done on a stock card is also a marvel.
From the title page, and GPU-Z info, it seems to be sporting a Gigabyte name, so its unclear if this is a Windforce cooled GPU or a reference design from Nvidia. Although, once again from the “source that shall not be named”, its temperatures did not exceed 73 degrees and it was no louder than a GTX 780 Ti at idle. Quite promising indeed.
I can’t really say much else, purely because I am still in awe, and I only just retrieved my jaw from the ground.
The GTX780 Ti, even if only just stepping out the nest, might still only be Nvidia’s second tier card. However, Nvidia don’t seem to be slowing down at all. Pricing is not confirmed, but one can expect it to be more than $700 (~R7000 upwards). Although the “source who shall not be named” opined that we would all be quite surprised by its retail price. So if that means $750 or $800 only time will tell. All I know is that I want it, and right now.
