The upcoming MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti Lightning graphics card has been pictured and detailed by the guys over at Comptoir Hardware. Well it does not look like much has changed from the GTX 780 Lighting card as the PCB sports the same 20-phase design, two 8-pin power connectors, V-Check points and Military Class 4 components.
The one noteable change is the MSI has replaced the ELPIDA memory modules with Samsung ones instead. And as you can see from the photos below they overclock quite well.
The card features the GK110-425 GPU which has 2880 CUDA cores. The card features 3GB of GDDR memory. Clocks for the GPU, GPU Boost and memory are 993 MHz, 1058 MHz and 1750 MHz respectively.
The cooling solution on the card is MSI’s TriFrozr which is made up of two large aluminum fin arrays with seven heatpipes and three cooling fans. The card even has a nice backplate and there are many LEDs on the back of the card that illuminate. The Lightning logo on the side of the card will actually illuminate too during real-time usage.
Unfortunately if you were looking to get your hands on this card you are out of luck. MSI will only be making 12 of these cards and they will not be available for retail sale.
