Traditionally, AMD and Nvidia board partners have boosted the performance of most GPUs by 5-10% via overclocking, so we fully expected one of them to take a stab at closing the meager 14% gap separating the GTX 780 and Titan. Palit has answered the bell with its GTX 780 Super JetStream, which is clocked 14% higher than usual at 980MHz with a 1033MHz boost, up from 863MHz and 902MHz.
We've only previously seen water-cooled GTX 780 cards pushed this far, while most air-cooled solutions have maxed out at around 960MHz, at least as far as factory overclocking has been concerned. However the GTX 780 Super JetStream is no ordinary graphics card, as its massive heatsink and three large fans keep its core cool when under stress -- a solution that allows the card to outpace the Titan, Palit says.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 features two dual-link DVIs, one HDMI and one DisplayPort connector. With 2304 CUDA cores at its disposal, 3GB of RAM and 64-bit memory controllers for a 384-bit wide memory bus. Paired with a 6008Mhz GDDR5 memory clock, it provides up to 288.4GB/sec of peak memory bandwidth to the GPU.
The GeForce GTX 770 is a graphics card featuring the next-gen Kepler-based GPU with 1536 CUDA cores, It features an amazing GDDR5 memory at 7GHz. It sports a pair of SLI connectors, 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and an I/O panel consisting of HDMI, DisplayPort and two DVI ports. The GTX 770 packs 4 graphics processing clusters, 8 streaming multiprocessors, 128 TAUs and 32 ROPs.
The GeForce GTX Titan is a single GPU graphics card packing 2688 SPUs, 224 TAUs and 48 ROPs. The card's memory subsystem consists of six 64-bit memory controllers (384-bit) with 6GB of GDDR5 memory running at 6008MHz, which works out to a peak bandwidth of 288.4GB/s
