We previously stated that Nvidia would announce a GK110 based GPU and the day has finally arrived. But as we and most people thought that the GPU would be the Ti version of the GTX 770 i.e. GTX 770 Ti, Nvidia has gone a step further and announced the GTX 780 Ti.
The new GTX 780 Ti is equipped with advanced technologies like Nvidia G-Sync, Nvidia GameWork, Nvidia ShadowPlay and GameStream to give an amazing and comfortable gaming experience to PC gamers.
The only words from Nvidia was that the card would be released next month and is the best solution for both 4K and 4K surround gaming, no details on specification were given out. But according to us, the GTX 780 Ti may have 2880 Cuda cores while having a 384-bit memory interface and up to 12GB GDDR5 memory. As usual, the card would need a 6+8 pin power connector just like the 780 and Titan. It would also feature a Dual-Link DVI, HDMI and display ports.
From the above pictures the GPU’s body looks similar to the GTX 780 and GTX Titan, an aluminum based shroud that pushes the heat inside the large vapor chamber and a GTX 780 Ti logo made with a laser.
Since AMD announced the R7 and R9 series cards and the known Titan Killer R9 290X, we knew that Nvidia won’t just stay still and let AMD take over the market. The GTX 780 Ti seems to be the answer to that as we saw earlier in a benchmark test that the R9 290X has the upper hand on the GTX 780, but wasn’t able to defeat the Titan. Now there is another GPU waiting in the list for AMD to reach.
No clue on the pricing was given out by Nvidia but it seems like the card should cost around $699.
