With AMD’s release of their Radeon R9 290 graphics card yesterday which has a pricetag of $399 the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 at $499 really does not make sense really. Because of this NVIDIA may be pushing its partners to come up with factory-overclocked versions of the GTX 780 to make it competitive.
The most speculated thing about the way NVIDIA is going to counter the situation is that they will come up with a new SKU which the add-in card (AIC) partners are referring to as the GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition. There hasn’t been much effort put into this since it is not so different than the original GTX 780. In reality, the GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition is just like the GTX 780 with higher clock speeds which can reach up to 1006 MHz core and with the GPU Boost, they can shoot up to 1046 MHz.
