Graphics card and motherboard manufacturer MSI has announced the release of the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning. This graphics card uses the new Triple Force Architecture and features Twin BIOS and a 20-phase power design. Also featured is the patented GPU Reactor powered back plate design, which filters power supply noise and improves overclocking stability.
The MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning is built using Military Class 4 components that have passed rigorous certification testing in third-party labs.
The card is equipped with a Triple Level Signals LED function; TriFrozr Thermal Design with independent fan control system to ensure better cooling of the GPU, memory, and PWM modules; and Pure Digital PWM control. The Triple Level Signals LED features green, blue, and red lights that represent light, medium, and heavy power loads. This ensures that players have complete control over their games or the overclocking process. MSI’s design builds upon the propeller blade fans and the dust removal technology of the previous model, alongside seven 8 mm SuperPipes. In addition, the Pure Digital PWM control technology provides for a stable and accurate voltage signal. The PWM’s reaction time is shorter and helps enthusiasts achieve a higher stability in the most stressful of environments.
Twin BIOS is composed of a gaming BIOS and overclocking BIOS. The gaming BIOS allows users to obtain better performance through out-of-the box overclocking, while the overclocking BIOS is designed for extreme LN2 overclocking. The enhanced power supply provides more phases of power than standard models. The GPU has 16 phases, which more than doubles the capabilities of standard designs. The memory of the power supply has an independent power source, which further supports a foundation for extreme overclocking. And MSI’s patented GPU Reactor filters out extra noise.
The MSI GeForce GTX 780 also features low-temperature, high performance DrMOS 4, double-sided CopperMOS thermal design, tantalum Hi-C Cap cores, SFC for added cooling, and corrosion proof dark solid CAP.
Designed specifically for overclocking, the 3x3 OC Kits allow users to adjust the voltage levels, GPU, memory, and PLL through MSI’s Afterburner utility while monitoring GPU, memory, and MOFSET temperatures. V-Check Points also capitalize upon the multimeter measuring of GPU, memory, and PLL voltage levels to give users direct calibration data.
