MSI Unleashes The GeForce GTX 780 LIGHTNING Graphics Card
The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning features the GK110-300-A2 GPU which comes with 2304 Cuda cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs. While the clock speeds are still not known, we do have information regarding other features which the new card boasts. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning comes with the standard 3 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 384-bit interface. Those clocks and memory would be factory overclocked and would obviously be good enough to run all of the current and upcoming games cranked up to the highest resolutions. Of course those looking for in more memory can always opt for the 6 GB Titan.
As for overclocking, the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning comes with mighty strong PWM supply. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning features an 16+3+1 phase VRM along with the new DrMOS 4 being the next-gen MOSFET which is used to deliver the power for the CPU. MSI DrMOS 4 does not waste much power, stays cool and is more power efficient than other power saving solutions. Because DrMOS 4 is a 3-in-1 chip it delivers much more power with less components needed. This solution gives you the power to break world records. The card is powered through Dual 8-Pin connectors.
