MSI GeForce GTX 780 LIGHTNING Final Performance and Pictures Exposed – Beats The GeForce GTX Titan

MSI GeForce GTX 780 LIGHTNING Final Performance and Pictures Exposed – Beats The GeForce GTX Titan

With the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning, MSI has no doubt got one of the most
impressive and the most powerful GeForce GTX 780 design out. The
GeForce GTX 780 Lightning launches tomorrow but CoolPC has got a preview ready for those who can’t wait to learn more about the performance and design aspects of MSI’s flagship GPU.

MSI GeForce GTX 780 LIGHTNING Performance and Pictures Unveiled

The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning features the GK110-300-A2 GPU which
comes with 2304 Cuda cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The card is clocked at
factory overclocked specs of 980 MHz stock and 1033 MHz boost while the
memory comes at a clock speed of 1502 MHz or 6 GHz effective. The
GeForce GTX 780 Lightning comes with the standard 3 GB GDDR5 memory
running along a 384-bit interface.

Those clocks and memory would be factory overclocked and would
obviously be good enough to run all of the current and upcoming games
cranked up to the highest resolutions. You may think that the
frequencies are a little lower than what the competition has to offer on
the GeForce GTX 780 custom models but the overclock design makes up for
it allowing users to push past the barriers restricted by weaker PWM
designs on reference and other custom models. Not to mention the cooling
that’s offered by the latest TriFrozr cooler.

As for overclocking, the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning comes with mighty
strong PWM supply. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning features an 16+3+1
phase VRM along with the new DrMOS 4 being the next-gen MOSFET which is
used to deliver the power for the CPU. MSI DrMOS 4 does not waste much
power, stays cool and is more power efficient than other power saving
solutions. Because DrMOS 4 is a 3-in-1 chip it delivers much more power
with less components needed. This solution gives you the power to break
world records. The card is powered through Dual 8-Pin connectors.


MSI has implemented their new Triple force architecture on the card
which has three basic features. First is the Triple Level Signals which
is basically a on-board LED that shows real-time load on the card by
displaying three colors, Green for Light Load, Blue for medium load and
Red for Heavy Load. Then comes with Pure Digital PWM control which offers more precise voltage, power/voltage control via MSI afterburner application and faster V response time. Last of all comes the most anticipated feature of the card, the TriFrozr Cooler.

The cooling on MSI’s GeForce GTX 780 Lightning is handled by the
latest TriFrozr cooler which is making an debut with the new Lightning
graphics card. It looks amazing
boasting three fans, two black colored while one 80mm yellow themed fan
sits in the middle. The shroud looks fantastic with a large Lightning
logo on one side and a massive aluminum fin array sitting
beneath it which cools the GPU under massive overclocked loads. The
heatsink is equipped with seven 8mm heatpipes that offer superior direct
contact and heat dissipation off the GPU base.

The interesting part is that the fan in the middle dissipates heat
off the PWM supply while the other two fans cool the GPU and Memory
chips. The card is powered through Dual 8-Pin connectors while Display
outputs include Dual DVI, HDMI and a display port. The MSI GeForce 780
LIGHTNING is expected to launch tomorrow for a hefty price of around
$749.99 US.
