Introduction

Palit GeForce GTX 780 3GB Super JetStream edition gets benchmarked

We test and review the Palit GeForce GTX 780 Super Jetstream review edition. The card comes with a most excellent cooler that is silent and performs really well. Next to that, this card comes factory overclocked for you guys, and not a little as at default clocks this puppy runs as fast and sometimes faster than a GeForce GTX Titan. Very impressive to observe, and it's a very impressive card to see as well. We test the product with the hottest games like Grid 2, Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor WarfighterHitman Absolution and many more. Now who doesn't like that with a card based on the chip that is embedded in the GeForce GTX Titan, eh?

The GeForce GTX 780 is NVIDIA's all new high-end graphics card based in their Flagship product, the GTX Titan. This means it is based on the GK110 GPU and has a whopping 7.1 Billion transistors. That makes it a nice chunk faster opposed to the GeForce GTX 680 GPU. Just like the Titan, the GTX 780 is based on the GK110 GPU with the distinctions that the Titan has a GK110-300 GPU and the GeForce GTX 780 a GK110-400 GPU. Same stuff, yet with some things disabled. But we are a bit surprised to see NVIDIA move forward with GK110. See, the GK110 chip is BIG, and that makes it a difficult chip to bake, its recipe is refined though as the product has 2304 Shader Processing Units, 192 TMUs and 32 ROPs on a 384-bit memory interface of fast GDDR5. So yeah, NVIDIA trimmed down that that 45 mm × 45 mm 2397-pin S-FCBGA Titan with its 2688 shader/stream/CUDA processors a bit.

Memory wise you are looking at 3GB to over 6GB, that is still a huge amount of memory (384-bit) on there. Combined with GPU Boost 2.0 you will see this product boosting towards the 1100~1150 MHz range once you tweak it. The reference clock is 863 MHz with a boost clock of 900 MHz. Looking at the specs you must think that this product must consume heaps of power; well it's not great, but definitely not bad at all. The maximum allowed board design power draw is roughly 250 Watts, which considering what this product is, is good.

But let's say hello to Titan's little brother first, the GeForce GTX 780 from Palit, in a black and beige-gold themed Super JetStream edition. This is the 3GB model that comes factory clocked for you at 980 MHz (Ref 863) with a Boost clock of 1033 MHz (Ref 900). The board is based on an 8-phase VRM design with DrMOS technology. But have a peek at the product we test today and then head onwards into the review.
