With all of the GeForce GTX 780 Ti releases yesterday there was one that caught our eye, but then we looked into it we were a little confused. Gigabyte introduced a GeForce GTX 780 Ti Overclock Edition (GV-N78TOC-3GD) graphics card. The reason why were are confused is that unlike EVGA, Gigabyte did not list the speeds of the card at all in their press release.
So we did some searching and the “GV-N78TOC-3GD” card is not even listed on their website yet. You would think if this was a truly overclocked GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics card they would list the clock speeds. I mean isn’t that a selling point of the card over reference cards?
The press release does tell us that the card will feature the new WINDFORCE 3X 2-slot 450W cooling system. This cooling system is said to thinner than the previous WINDFORCE 3X cooler, but can still dissipate 450W of heat. The cooler is made up of three PWM fans, a large heatsink with “Triangle Cool” technology, two 8 mm and four 6mm heatpipes and a high-performance RAM heatsink. This cooling solution is said to be 14% better than NVIDIA’s stock solution.
The card will also come with Gigabyte’s OC GURU II software that enables users to easily monitor and adjust different settings on the card. Maybe this is what Gigabyte meant by Overclock Edition as they have an aftermarket cooler and want users to overclock the card themselves.
Really only time will tell what the actual speeds of this card are once Gigabyte lists it on their website.
