The graphics card market has experienced some amazing turns lately even though AMD and Nvidia haven't made serious architectural changes in 2013. Most recent GPUs have been rebadges, while a handful are just extensions of previous-gen technology, including the flagships from both camps. The R9 290X's Hawaii XT core boosted the performance of the HD 7970's Tahiti XT core around 38% with a memory bus that's 33% wider, while the GTX Titan is powered by a version of the GTX 680's GPU, except it's 90% bigger!
Enter new production versions of the GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 780 Ti: As if it wasn't already fast enough, Gigabyte has armed its GTX 780 Ti with a massive air cooler that allows its variant of Nvidia's newcomer with a 17% overclock. The company has also been working on other overclocked GTX 780s, including a "GHz Edition" allowing a core clock of 1.02GHz or 18% higher than the standard version of the card.
The Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 Ti is the top-tier graphics card in the GeForce 700 series, it features a fully unlocked GK110 GPU core with all 2880 CUDA cores, 240 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The GTX 780 Ti sports 3 GB of GDDR5 VRAM on a 384-bit bus, two DVI ports, a HDMI port and a DisplayPort and requires a 6+8pin PCIe power connector. All the usual APIs, including DirectX 11.2, OpenGL 4.4, PhysX, Surround and 3D Vision, are supported.
