As expected, today NVIDIA officially announced the release of the graphic adapter GeForce GTX 780 on the architecture of Kepler. Premiere of this flagship model, developers have opened a series of announcements of desktop discrete graphics cards from the new family of GeForce GTX 700 Series.
The first-generation of seven hundred series is based on a set of 28-nm design rules GK110 chip with 2304 cores CUDA, 192 texture units (TMU) and 48 ROP units (ROP). It is made on a black printed circuit board under the bus PCI Express 3.0 x16, and equipped with a dual-slot cooler active type, which by design is identical to the cooling system, applied to the video card GeForce GTX Titan. Volume presence on board GDDR5 memory and 384-bit memory interface and the frequency of 6008 MHz is 3072 MB. The base frequency of the graphics core is at around 863 MHz and can dynamically increase to 900 MHz forces of technology NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0. Declared yield new items is 4 TFLOPS, and its level TDP of 250 watts. The accelerator is compatible with DirectX 11.1 and supports technology NVIDIA, as the CUDA, PhysX, SLI and 3D Vision Surround. For additional power provided 6-pin and 8-pin connectors. The back panel has two ports, DVI, as well as one HDMI output and DisplayPort.
According to internal tests conducted by employees of NVIDIA, the level of performance of GeForce GTX 780 in many popular computer 3D-games is confidently ahead Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition from AMD. However, the real balance of power between the rivals, as you know, be able to identify only independent tests.
At last, in U.S. market the price is estimated at $ 650. It is expected that by the end of this week will go on sale options GeForce GTX 780 from partners Californian electronics giant, as the company ASUSTeK Computer, EVGA, GIGABYTE Technology, InnoVISION Multimedia Limited (Inno3D), Micro-Star International (MSI), Palit Microsystems and ZOTAC.
