NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Overclocked - Closing the gap on the GTX TITAN

We overclock NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 780 video card to see just what kind of performance we can get out the new GPU. It has the $999 GTX TITAN in its view.

Introduction

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Overclocked - Closing the gap on the GTX TITAN 02 | TweakTown.com

Yesterday we checked out the newly released NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 3GB video card and found ourselves impressed with what NVIDIA have been able to do with the new model. We found that at times performance was quite similar to the higher-end GTX TITAN, while the price tag came in a solid $350 cheaper.

With performance between the two high-end models from NVIDIA being quite close at times, we wondered how close we could get to closing the performance gap between these two models when overclocking was thrown into the mix. With a copy of MSI Afterburner already out supporting the GTX 780 as well adding voltage adjustment support, we've really got the opportunity today to see just what kind of real performance we can get out of the new GTX 780.

Due to the fact that we've already looked at the video card in detail, we won't be going into too much detail about it again. If there's anything you want to find out, we highly recommend you head over to the original review that we linked to above.

From here we'll move straight into our testbed and quickly go over the cards that you'll be seeing in our graphs today. Once we've done that we'll cover how we went with overclocking before we get stuck into the performance and find out just how much we can close the gap between these two high-end GPU models from NVIDIA. Not only that, though, we'll see just how much more of a lead the new GTX 780 3GB can get on the aging AMD Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition.
