It offers a very similar look to the GTX 780 and GTX TITAN. These top-end NVIDIA reference coolers look fantastic and we've heard people talk about how the latest reference design coolers from AMD feel kind of cheap.
While we'd agree with that and also agree that the design of the high-end NVIDIA reference coolers are so much sexier with the perspex window, if the cooler does its job and the design helps cut down costs, then we really can't complain - especially when you consider that once the card goes in your case, you're more than likely not going to be able to see it.
Overall, though, there's not a whole lot to see as the cooler almost covers the whole card from top to bottom and left to right. We've got the fan on the far right hand side which draws cool air in, pushes it directly across the GPU and then straight out the back of the case. This is a very typical cooler design when it comes to high-end reference coolers.
Taking a look around the card it again very much feels like the GTX 780. When it comes to the power, you can see we've got a single 8-pin PCIe and 6-pin PCIe power connector. Staying across the top of the card you can see two SLI connectors which give us the ability to run up to four of these cards in SLI. While we won't be making use of them today, we hope to in the coming weeks, as we'd like to see how the setup performs against the R290 X 4GB CrossFire setup that we looked at recently.
Finishing our look up at the card, you can see the I/O is very standard. We've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors, along with a HDMI and DisplayPort connector.
When it comes to the specifications, the main thing we want to know is how it differs against its little brother, the GTX 780 3GB. CUDA cores have been increased from 2304 to 2880 - even higher than the GTX TITAN that carries 2688. Texture Units are also up with the GTX 780 having 192, the GTX TITAN having 224 and the new GTX 780 Ti having a massive 240. ROPs remain the same across all three models with 48 present.
When it comes to clock speeds, the base clock of 875MHz and boost clock of 928MHz is up on both models again with the GTX 780 offering 863MHz / 900MHz and the GTX TITAN coming in at 837MHz / 876MHz.
Like the GTX 780, the GTX 780 Ti offers 3GB of GDDR5 sitting on a 384-bit memory bus like the GTX TITAN, but the big difference is that the GTX TITAN offers 6GB of GDDR5. The main difference here, though, is that unlike the GTX 780 and GTX TITAN which offers a 6000MHz QDR memory clock, the new GTX 780 Ti offers a massive 7000MHz QDR clock.
Specification wise, the GTX 780 Ti is quite the beast, and considerably more impressive than the $999 GTX TITAN. Let's find out just what the new model is capable of as we get into the benchmarking side of things over the next lot of pages.
