Gigabyte GTX780 Ti GHz Edition Review
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.
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.
