ASUS is now joining EVGA, Palit and Gainward by offering a 6 GB version of the GeForce GTX 780. Normally we would expect a card like this to be part of ASUS’s Republic of Gamers or DirectCU II lines, but ASUS has actually launched a new brand called STRIX.
It looks like other companies are following suit after EVGA announced 6GB GTX 780 variants. Palit has just announced that they are also working on a 6GB GeForce GTX 780 graphics card. The card is the GeForce GTX 780 JeStream 6GB.
It looks like other companies were feeling the pressure as Sapphire had announced two R9 290X’s with 8GB a VRAM. Those cards would outperform the GTX 780 Ti in terms of available memory. Well it looks like EVGA will be releasing both a GTX 780 Ti and a GTX 780 with 6GB of VRAM.

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.
It looks like NVIDIA will be reacting to AMD’s R9 290X’s very aggressive pricing. Our friends over at Rigmods gave gotten word that these price drops will go live tomorrow as well as the new The Way It’s Meant To Be Played ‘Pirates, Heroes and Spies’ promotion.
