Gainward GTX780 Ti Phantom Single and SLI Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

Gainward GTX780Ti Phantom Single and SLI Review 


The GTX780Ti is still capable of making our jaws drop when we look at the performance, especially when comparing it to the previous 6xx series.

Gainward have been around forever producing outstanding graphics cards. Anyone who recalls their Golden Sample series will know how much performance they can extract from your 3D weapon of choice.

So with a GPU that's renowned for extraordinary capabilities, and in a variant produced by a manufacturer known for getting the most from a GPU, the Gainward Phantom should be an amazing card. At least on paper.

This also gave us the perfect opportunity to see how the SLI performance of the GTX780Ti compares to the Titan and plain GTX780 SLI setups that we've tested before.

So without further ado, let's see if the Gainward GTX780Ti Phantom SLI setup is enough to make the socks beneath our Christmas tree seem even more uninspiring than they already are.

Technical Specifications

Initially the technical specifications for the Phantom don't appear to be anything special. Standard Ti clock speeds and sizes, as well as the regulation output options.

Of course a specs list doesn't tell the whole story. The Phantom has a neat trick up it's sleeve.

Wow , those number for SLI are amazing , but I'm going to say pricey and overkill for most people . Still I'd love to have just one of these , if for anything else the looks and the ability to really clean up the fans properly .

Great review .Quote

They sure do perform well

I thought these Gainward versions would be some of the more expensive non ref 780Tis. Others I have seen knocking about are £630-£650+ these coming in at £600 isn't bad.

Saying that though, It's hard to talk about the price of them with a strait face, the price of the 780Ti is general is bad. But at least these Gainward ones are cheaper than the others that are about.Quote

The GTX 780 Ti cards may be expensive but you can't argue with those results, truly top class.
That being said I can't help but smile or laugh when I look at the price, even the price of one is out of my price range if I were to build a whole rig.

I do like the design of these gainward cards, the fans behind the fins and the ability to remove the fans are a truly fantastic feature for cleaning the cards and they don't look bad either.Quote

Fantastic looking 'cards, best you can buy imo in terms of looks. I don't like the price of the 780tis but I can kind of see why they cost that much.Quote
