NVIDIA has announced the GeForce GTX 780 graphics card. This is the first addition to its desktop GeForce GTX 700 series. Basically designed for hardcore gaming, 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 predecessor.
The card features GPU Boost 2.0, a technology that increases the GPU’s clock speeds for enhanced performance taking temperatures into account. The GPU core is clocked at 863 MHz, GPU Boost at 900 MHz, and memory at 6.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective).
“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 at ASUS and Zotac with the expected starting price of INR 48,990.
