Nvidia Announces GTX 780 GPU
It’s been a great year for Nvidia in the PC gpu market, and the products just keep rolling in! Announced today, Nvidia has revealed the new GTX 780 gpu, based on the same record-breaking GPU used in the GeForce GTX TITAN.
The 780 features 50% more cores (2.304), 50% more memory (3GB/384-BIT) than the GTX 680, and is enhanced with GPU BOOST 2.0. It offers up to a 70% performance upgrade from the GTX 580, and up to a 34% upgrade from the GTX 680. With beef like this powering your graphics, today’s top PC games should be able to run at max settings with no issues.
Compared to the HD7970 gpu, games like Batman: Arkham City and Shogun 2 run over 39% faster, while Borderlands 2, Battlefield 3, Far Cry 3, Skyrim, and others run 25-30% faster at 2560×1600.
Powering your games to a hyper-realistic visual experience is not the only thing the 780 does better. When compared to the GTX 580 and 680, the 780 runs at a much quieter dBA than either of its two predecessors. A new adaptive temperature control minimizes fan speed fluctuations.
Of course, to help enhance your shiny new 780, you need a worthy companion, and to do so, Nvidia has also announced the New GeForce Experience. New to this awesome optimization tool is ShadowPlay, which allows gamers to record up to the last 20 minutes of gameplay. A H.264 video encoder is built into every Kepler GPU, which allows ShadowPlay to record in the background at all times, delivering less of a performance hit than popular capture programs like FRAPS.
