The new 6GB cards from EVGA will be available soon at a starting MSRP of $549.99, but more details on the actual release date are on their way.
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 6GB Features:
- 6GB of high-speed GDDR5 memory designed for the latest games at high resolution.
- EVGA ACX Cooling (select SKU’s) – Double ball bearing fan design offers 15% lower GPU and Memory temperatures.
- NVIDIA G-SYNC Ready – The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 lineup has full support for NVIDIA G-SYNC Technology.
- NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology 2.0 – Dynamically maximizes clock speeds to push performance to new levels and bring out the best in every game.
“EVGA is also introducing a brand new cooling design; the redefining EVGA ACX Cooler. With a 40% increase in heatsink volume, the EVGA ACX is more efficient at dissipating heat, allowing for 15% lower GPU temperatures. A reinforcement baseplate maintains a straight PCB, and helps lower mosfet temperatures by 7% and memory by 15%. Even the fan blades are of the highest quality; with a 700% increase in strength, and 25% lower weight when compared to competitors. This makes the fans 20% more efficient by requiring lower power levels. EVGA is also using double ball bearing fans which offer a 12 year lifespan, 4X longer when compared to competitors!” said EVGA in a recent press release.
