MSI is showing photo's of an upcoming card called the MSI GTX 780 Lightning Lite Edition. The LE model comes with 889/941 MHz Base/Boost GPU clocks compared to the regular GTX 780 Lightning at 980/1033 MHz. Tthe 780 is making use of the GK110-300-A2 GPU which is packed with 2,304 cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs.
The GTX 780 Lightning LE also has Military Class components, a 10-layer PCB, a GPU Reactor for improved overclocking stability, a TriFrozr cooler, Pure Digital PWM Control, Twin BIOS, a 16+3 phase power design, and the 'usual' - 2304 CUDA Cores, 3 GB of GDDR5 memory set to 6008 MHz, and dual-DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort output.
The one thing that you really can't miss out on is the new design cooler, now known as the TriFrozr it features a total of three fans. Two of the fans to the left and right are large 86mm black fans, while a smaller yellow 70mm fan rests right in the middle. The yellow fan also has a somewhat denser fin arrangement. The fans can be programmed independent from each other. For the heatsink itself MSI is using a large dual fin-stack heatsink connected to seven 8 mm-thick heat pipes. The GPU is connected towards 7 GT/s Elpida-branded memory chips for its framebuffer. Interesting is that the card will also have three BIOSes. One functions as a failsafe (with reference firmware), the secondary BIOS is used as stock factory OC BIOS, and one BIOS is an LN2 BIOS for liquid-nitrogen cooling based overclocking.
