Palit Jetstream GTX780 Ti

 

Introduction - FULL REVIEW AVAILABLE HERE

Palit have been with us for decades now, and despite the perception of them being quite a small brand, they actually sell more graphics cards per year than any other manufacturer. Palit Microsystems is the parent company for KFA/Galaxy and Gainward, as well as a fair few other smaller brands. We’ve been impressed over the past few years by the JetStream models of their cards, which have proved to remain cool and quiet, whilst looking great in the process, with their blue LED fan built into the card.

Now, Palit is back with a new card; the JetStream GTX 780ti. This has a whopping default core clock of 980Mhz and a boost clock of 1046Mhz, making it the fastest 780ti in the market right now.

Conclusion

We think this is a stunning looking piece of kit. Its triple fan design is great to look at, and underneath it incorporates a new heatsink design making it even more efficient than the previous models, whilst retaining the traditional JetStream look. Palit have also designed their own PCBs for the 780ti, which they claim adds a 10% increase in performance on top of the reference 780ti. This really is shaping up to be an incredible card.

With the boost clock of 1046Mhz, this card comes overclocked far higher than any other GTX 780ti. If you want stunning performance out of the box, and aren’t interested in overclocking any further, then the JetStream would be a perfect choice. If you want to push the card even further, then Palit’s custom PCB should aid in maximizing overclocking ability, although you will still be limited to the silicone lottery with the GK110 core of the 780ti.
