NVIDIA says that the GK110-powered GeForce GTX 780 has 50% more memory and 50% more CUDA cores than the GeForce GTX 680, and is on average 35% faster than its predecessor.

"With more memory bandwidth, more VRAM, more CUDA Cores, and more all-round speed, the GTX 780 is the high-end GPU of choice for the next-generation of games, arriving on shop shelves this Holiday. Paired with a recent Quad Core CPU, GTX 780 owners will exceed the level of fidelity and performance seen on upcoming consoles, guaranteeing superior experiences in the coming wave of multi-platform next-gen titles, beginning with Battlefield 4, Call of Duty: Ghosts, and Watch_Dogs."
