EVGA are one of the most popular GPU manufacturers on the planet, and this morning they’ve taken action to remind us all why with the annoucnement of their latest bit of hardware for the GeForce GTX 780 range. The new EVGA GeForce GTX 780 6GB card feature 2,304 processing cores, 6GB of high-speed GDDR5 memory and NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology, making it an ideal choice for high-resolution, high-performance gaming.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 6GB is tuned to perform better than ever along side the Nvidia GeForce experience software, as well as with feature such as PhysX and TXAA. Not only does it represent one of the greatest cards EVGA have ever put together, but if you’ve bought an EVGA graphics card within the last 90 days, you can grab this one via their step up program by paying the difference. 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.

    You woulda thought the 780 SKU’s would be all used up by now. I haven’t seen a 780 in ages, must be at least about a week now.

    • Avatar trog69 says:

      I just bought one last week. Not this 6gb, though. I’ve posted questions at a couple places wanting more info on VRAM and how to determine how much is needed. Skyrim is the biggest vram soak right now, with about 2.5gb via mods, and HD patches. I don’t think that those of us with 3gb cards have anything to worry about for now or the near future. This card is for multiple-screen gaming, period.

      • Avatar Skidmarks says:

        780’s are still pretty easy to come by in the retail chain, I just thought it strange that the card is based on the 780 SKU and not the 780 Ti, I didn’t think that die was still being manufactured.

  • Avatar ImUrAssassin says:

    This or 780 Ti Dual Classified?

    • Avatar Ryan Martin says:

      780Ti Dual Classified, 6GB of VRAM is pointless and total overkill. Even at 4K 3GB is enough hence why the GTX 780 Ti 3GB is faster than the GTX Titan 6GB,

      • Avatar steven says:

        not really overkill. simply cause with next gen… cards are gonna be using SO much more. to run things on HD settings with games like MGS 5 which i know isn’t for PC (yet, i heard it may kojima said if fans want it enough) i could see that running super high end. i heard watch dogs on highest settings is like 2 gigs somewhere in there. id want this running that instead of a 2 gig card runnin its lil hard out. i got a friend with a top end system running skyrim modded and it pulls close to 3 gigs on his video card so this in no way is over kill in my opinion. this is perfect actually for anyone building a gaming computer right now and wanting any game they want on highest settings looking gorgeous

        • Avatar Ryan Martin says:

          Yes, you are correct with Skyrim. Skyrim is a game that actually takes advantage of more VRAM. However, 4K testing on a variety of games that weren’t Skyrim never saw VRAM usage on the GTX Titan go above 3.5GB, which is more than the GTX 780 Ti, yet the GTX 780 Ti always returned higher frame rates. I’m not debating whether the extra VRAM can be used, you could use it if you really wanted to, my point is extra VRAM doesn’t make any noticeable difference to performance – especially on a GTX 780 3GB vs 6GB.

          • Avatar ImUrAssassin says:

            So is the best descision still the 780 Ti Dual Classified? I want two of the best 780’s I can get to throw in a rig for 5760×1080 play. Well.. More of a Dream rig, but still. Knowing is half the battle and I need to learn more about these newer cards.

          • Avatar Ryan Martin says:

            5760 x 1080 is effectively “tripleHD” while 4K is “quadHD” so 3GB is a perfect amount for that resolution, 780 Ti (and GTX 780 too) SLI would absolutely demolish those games with huge frame rates. If you’re on a bit of a budget and still want more VRAM you might also consider CFX R9 290 or R9 290X as the extra 1GB of VRAM may help in the long term.

  • Avatar Chase Messer says:

    Meh, yawn.. I already have two 6GB cards.

  • Avatar A.J. Stroud says:

    Dammit, i just bought a EVGA GTX 780 SC 3GB card….*shakes fist vehemently* :S

  • Avatar Branden Jew says:

    6gb is not overkill. 3 years ago when I was buying my GTX 580’s I had a choice of 1.5gb or 3gb vram. Everyone on the forums was saying to me that “3gb was too much and a waste of money” and “you’ll never need 3gb of vram for 1080P. I took their advice and regretted it when Max Payne 3, Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider 2013, and Watch Dogs came out. To play on Ultra 3 gigs is like the minimum. Watch dogs takes over 3.4 GB on ultra 1080P.
    I’m not getting the 780 3GB. I’m getting the 6GB version.
