Overclocking

As we’ll see on the next page there are some under the hood tweaks that allow the GTX780Ti to overclock better than its predecessor. Rather than draw all the power from either the PCI Express 3.0 slot, or the power inputs, the GTX780Ti manages the balance between them better. This has an enormous benefit to the overclocking with incredible speed attainable. The GPU Core is bumped from 876MHz to 1101MHz thats a 225MHz offset and the the boost pushes this even further up to an amazing 1244MHz! The already blisteringly quick 7GHz GDDR5 manages a further 600MHz, which should make a big difference in our high resolution tests.

Temperatures

As both AMD and nVidia now use any thermal headroom to increase the performance of their card, so the temperature testing is less about the cooler than it used to be. However, it’s clear that the reference nVidia cooler is a much better proposition for the rest of your system when compared to the Radeon. That heat has to go somewhere and with the GTX780Ti there is less of it to disperse.
