The MSI N780 Lightning card features an overclocked NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 GPU rated at 980MHz. With a triple-fan cooling system and Military Class IV components, we put it to the test to see what truly lies behind the hood of this powerfully built graphics card.
The GeForce GTX 780 is positioned as a more powerful update to the GTX 680, and it offers a value proposition to system builders who aspire to own a GTX Titan. We pit two custom cards from ASUS and MSI; we even assess their performances in a 2-way SLI configuration! So step right in to find out how they fared.
Gigabyte's Windforce 3X is the first factory-overclocked GeForce GTX 780 custom card to reach our labs. Overclocked 91MHz on the core to an impressive 954MHz, the Windforce 3X is also armed with a mean-looking triple-fan cooling system. We put it to the test.
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 is powered by the same GK110 that drives the GTX Titan. Sporting 2304 CUDA cores, which is about 16 per cent less than Titan's, and 50 per cent more than the GTX 680, the card seems to be a rehashed Titan that is positioned as a more powerful update to the GTX 680. Find out how it actually fares!
