UPDATE: Videocardz has got an exclsuive picture of the GeForce GTX 780 straight from its slide deck which can be seen below. The card has a 8+6 Pin connector representing a similar 225W TDP as the GeForce GTX Titan.

We already know what the GeForce GTX 780 would look like and what specifications it would feature. 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 320/384-bit memory interface. The GPU would make use of the cooler from GeForce Titan which would allow for better thermal specs providing users more overclocking headroom. The pricing is suggested around the  500-600 Euros mark for GeForce GTX 780 while overclocked models which would also be available at launch are going to cost slightly more. The card comes with GPU Tweak support but that's obvious since the GPU is made by ASUS.

There’s nothing much about the packaging except it touting the card as an ultimate gaming experience and a gaming perfection inside out. Reports suggest that the GeForce GTX 780 would be the first GK110 GPU that NVIDIA would allow AIBs to offer with custom board models. So it won’t be a surprise if we get to see an GeForce GTX 780 iGame Kudan in the future. It comes with TXAA, PhysX, Direct X11, SLI and 3D Stereoscopic support which is expected from a NVIDIA GPU.

The latest reports suggest that the card would end up with a price tag of $699 and would feature around 25-30% performance improvement over the GeForce GTX 680. You can also check out the GeForce GTX 770 here which would replace the GeForce GTX 770 with its similar but faster clocked GK104 core.
