NVIDIA would launch their GeForce GTX 780 flagship GPU of the GeForce 700 series tomorrow but thanks to Videocardz, we have a first look at the performance numbers of the GPU which look really impressive.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Performance On Par With GeForce GTX Titan

If you had been following us then you would know that the GeForce GTX 780 is based on a slightly cut down version of the GK110 core which was featured on the GeForce GTX Titan. The GTX 780 would be the flagship product of the 700 series and would be based on a cut down version of the GK110 core codenamed “GK110-300-A2″. This core would have 2304 cores and a 3 GB GDDR5 memory which would operate along a 384-bit memory interface. The core is maintained at 863 MHz with Turbo boost of 900 MHz while the memory operates at the reference 1502 MHz or 6 GHz effective clock speed. The GPU would be powered by an 8+6 Pin connectors which represent a 250W TDP while display connectors include Dual Link DVI, HDMI and a single display port.

The model tested in specific was from manufacturer “GIgabyte” and the card is essentially a reference model which makes use of the Titan cooling scheme. You can see its specifications below:

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Specs:

  • Base Clock: 863 MHz
  • Boost Clock: 889 MHz (GPU Boost 2.0)
  • Memory Clock: 6008 MHz
  • CUDA Cores: 2304
  • Bus Type: PCI-E 3.0
  • Memory: 3GB GDDR5
  • Memory Bus: 384-bit
  • TDP: 250 W (6+8pin connectors)
  • Display Outputs: DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI, DisplayPort
  • Height: 112 mm
  • Length: 267 mm
  • Cooler: 2 slot

According to the latest performance figures in 3DMark 11, 3DMark FireStrike and 3DMark Vantage, the card is just around 3.3% on average slower than the $1000 GeForce GTX Titan while being upto 26% faster than GeForce GTX 680 and 27% faster than Radeon HD 7970 GHz edition. With such an improvement the GTX 780 could change the mind of those looking forward to buy GTX TItan since the card would cost way too less at $599-$659 compared to the $1000 cost of the Titan. The only advantage the GTX Titan has is the 6 GB VRAM other than which its performance is matched by the cut down GK110 core on the GTX 780. Following is the performance breakdown:
