Gainward has joined the fun and launched its own reference GTX 780 graphics card.
As noted earlier, based of the 28nm GK110 GPU, the GTX 780 features 2304 CUDA cores, works at 863MHz base and 900MHz Boost GPU clocks and features 3GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 6000MHz and paired up with a 384-bit memory interface. The new GTX 780 needs 8+6-pin PCI-Express power connectors, features Nvidia GPU Boost 2.0 technology, has two dual-link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs and a 250W TDP.
Although it did not come up with a custom-cooled Phantom version of the GTX Titan graphics card since Nvidia was pretty much clear that partners are not allowed to change the reference cooler on it, it is possible that Gainward might actually come up with a Phantom version of the GTX 780 since some partners have already announced their own custom-cooled version, despite the fact that the GTX Titan cooler does quite a good job in cooling the GTX 780.
The new Gainward GTX 780 should be rolling out to e-tailers/retailers with a price tag of around US $649/€649.
