Earlier today we mentioned that Expreview had posted the first review of the GeForce GTX 780. What we didn’t tell you is that in the review they also revealed the Inno3D GeForce GTX 780 Super Ice Dragon Edition video card. The card features a custom triple fan cooling solution and is factory overclocked. Read on for all of the photos and information.
The reference The GeForce GTX 780 would be based on a cut down version of the GK110 core codenamed “GK110-300-A2″. Unlike the GeForce GTX Titan that has 14 streaming multiprocessors and 2688 cores the GTX 780 will have 12 streaming multiprocessors and 2304 cores. The core clock is set at 863 MHz with a turbo boost of 900 MHz. The included 3 GB of GDDR5 memory operates at 1502 MHz (6GHz effective) and will operate along a 384 bit memory bus. Power is given to the GPU by an 8+6 pin PCI Express connector and the card has a TDP of 250W. Display connectors include dual link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort. The Inno3D GeForce GTX 780 Super Ice Dragon on the other has its core clock set at 1006 MHz with a turbo boost of 1046 MHz. The memory has been moved up from 1502 MHz to 1553 MHz. That is a nice factory overclock!
The custom cooling solution is called the iChill HerculeZ and is made up of 3 large cooling fans and a large aluminum heatsink stack with many copper heatpipes. There is also a very cool backplate that covers much of the back of the card.
