NVIDIA has recently unveiled the GeForce GTX 780 Ti to combat the AMD Radeon R9 290X Hawaii graphics card. Clearly the GTX 780 was no match in terms of specs and price/performance, that’s why they are unleashing the GTX 780 Ti to battle the R9 290X. But during NVIDIA’s event, they didn’t mention anything about its specifications and price. They generally say that it will have new features and it will be faster than the GTX 780 at the same time consumes less power. But they did not mention the specific details about the card. Just recently, somebody from ChipHell leaked of what it seems to be a GPU-Z screenshot of the GeForce GTX 780 Ti. The screenshot revealed partial specifications about the card.
The leaked GPU-Z screenshot of the GTX 780 Ti reveals that it is based on the GK110 silicon, same with the GTX Titan and GTX 780. But it has slightly more cores of 2496 than the GTX 780. It is also clocked higher compared to the GTX Titan and GTX 780, with 902MHz base clock and 954MHz boost clock. Memory bus width is 384-bit same with others, and comes with 3GB of VRAM same with GTX 780.
Although some PC enthusiasts and gamers prayed that the screenshot above is fake or not the final specs since they are hoping to see more core processors in the GTX 780 Ti. The GTX 780 Ti sits somewhere in between the GTX Titan and GTX 780, but when it comes to the question that “will the GTX 780 Ti be a Radeon R9 290X killer?”, let’s just find out when real world benchmarks comes out. Probably in the following months to comes. Synthetic benchmarks are sometimes, if not most of the times, unreliable.
