A report states that the Nvidia GeForce GTX 780 graphics card will be using GK11-300 core with 2304 CUDA cores with the base clock of 863MHz and with 3GB GDDR5 with 384-bit interface. The card has a TDP of 250W and will require 6+8 PCIe power cables to get the necessary power for the graphics card. The card has 2x DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort output connectors.
It has also been stated that it will be using DX 11.1 and not DX12. Earlier Ocaholic did put up a CPU-Z validation screenshot which showed that it was using DX12, but then another report indicated that CPU-Z’s validation data can be altered easily and passed through as a genuine validation. This also gets rid of earlier speculation that Nvidia’s GTX 700 series is nothing more than rebranded GTX 600. Which is always a good part to read because nobody would like to buy a rebrand for a higher price of the naming scheme.
It is also being pointed out that GeForce GTX 780 comes with a promising boost of 25-to-50% over AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition depending on certain games with the exception of Tomb Raider. Its also being said that the non-reference versions of GTX 780 will be coming shortly after the reference version’s release which also confirms the previous news report that Nvidia would be allowing its AIB partners to have their own PCB design GPUs.
