MSI GTX780 Gaming Review

Introduction and Technical Specifications

MSI GTX780 Gaming Review  


Sometimes a product arrives at our offices that we can't imagine not liking. Every box is ticked. Of course that doesn't mean that we'll be as pleased by the end of our time with it, but initial impressions are good. So what makes this something that had our root fizzing?

For a start it's a GTX780, easily the best graphics card around right now. Sure a GTX Titan might just have the edge in particular scenarios, but in terms of mind-blowing performance at a reasonable price the GTX780 is our recommendation for anyone looking to upgrade from anything below a GTX690. It's that good.

Secondly it's equipped with the MSI Twin Frozr cooler. One of our favourite coolers, it's been found on everything from GTX460's to HD7970s, and always does the job while looking cool. Speaking of looking cool, as part of the MSI Gaming range is has the Dragon logo and accoutrements. It also should combine with a Gaming range motherboard, to enable one click overclocking for the whole system. It also, if the mood strikes, allows for one click silent mode. Handy if you're watching a film and want to detune your entire system for silence. At the time of review the software to enable this is still being tweaked by MSI and so isn't part of our test today, but it's worth noting if you want a simple holistic adjustment free from the faff of adjusting your whole system separately.

Technical Specifications

As we'd expect from a factory overclocked graphics card, the MSI Gaming has a serious boost to both the regular core speed and the Boost speed. Hopefully there is some performance left for us to extract.

Yep, the Titan sure is worth that extra £300

Awesome card from MSI as usual, if this is what the normal OC version performs like I can't wait to see the lightning.Quote

It would be impossible not to recommend it as it's the best GTX780 around at the moment.
Performance-wise, this isn't the best 780 at the moment. The Classified scored 1891 points higher in FireStrike when overclocked on air. EVGA claims it was a retail card. However, it still might have been cherry-picked.Quote
