Our Final Thoughts
Gigabyte showed up to the 780 Ti scene with a model that can only be seen at this point as “King of the hill” status, but as I have not seen any other offerings show up to our test bed yet I cannot guarantee how long that status will hold. However the binning of this card is admittedly very aggressive and it is possible that many other partners may simply air on the side of caution by releasing lower clocked models to allow a much higher yield and alot less work binning. But as for now I am massively applauding Gigabyte on this entry as they simply threw out the rule book and went balls to the walls with the GHz edition card with insane speeds right out of the box and performance to match.
The price point is just a bit over the reference model which means that to get a card with huge performance over the reference is awesome and honestly unexpected as you also get an awesome backplate and cooler in this combo. Lets not forget that you have a massively overclocked card with a warranty ready to chew through pretty much any game you throw at it.
As for bad things I really cannot come up with one honestly, this card is ridiculous and I really don’t know of anything not to like.
Any gamer looking to build with a 780 Ti would be crazy not to consider the GHz edition as it is simply insane from value and performance standpoint, it easily deserves our gold award, and I wish I had a “Mad Scientists” award I could ad to here as this thing still as I have completed testing and am writing this am blown away by the sheer awesomeness that is the GHz edition card.
