Gigabyte GTX780Ti GHz Edition Review

Introduction

So far the GTX780Ti has proven itself to be the weapon of choice if you're looking for the best single GPU performance available. As good as it is out of the box, it flies particularly well once a decent overclock is in place.

However, we're aware that not everyone is comfortable poking around with their £500+ purchase, and that's where a factory overclocked card can really start to shine.

To this end today we're looking at the Gigabyte GTX780Ti GHz edition, a factory overclocked card that comfortably passes the 1GHz barrier at stock, and with the Windforce cooler in place has the potential to go even further with the nVidia GPU Boost 2.0 technology.

By now you're all very familiar with the GK110 GPU, so let's crack on.

Technical Specifications

The two big changes for the GHz Edition are the inclusion of the Gigabyte Windforce cooler, and that big factory overclock that pushes the GPU to 1085MHz out of the box. This isn't far from the best manual overclocks we've obtained so hopefully the results should back up this potential performance.

Gigabyte only make one version of the 780 Ti Windforce so they should all have backplates.

Upside down text is unbelievable :/ The little slot for routing the power cables though, kudos for that great ideaQuote

Just paint the backplate white - solves the text issue and would contrast nicely with the black PCB underneath.

Might even remove the front fan shroud and paint that white too if doable.Quote
