NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Overclocked Clandestinely and Benchmarked

The GeForce GTX 780 Ti hasn't been released, but that didn't stop leaks from showing up, or benchmarks from being carried out. Now, though, I have one better.

Or perhaps I should say that ChipHell overclocker loshu1919 got his hands on the card, overclocked it and then benchmarked the living lights out of it. You'll see below the results in FurMark, and 3DMark at both stock (928 MHz) and overclocked settings (1,054 MHz). The temperature averages at around 79 degrees Celsius, while the scores outdo the ones of the GeForce GTX Titan and AMD Radeon R9 290X, albeit perhaps not by the mile some may have been hoping.

Then again, ioshu1919 didn't increase the power limit, which means that there is a lot of room for extra overclocking. Like, say, to 1100 MHz / 1200 MHz, Images gallery below, click for larger images.

Gigabyte Readies GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition

Some time ago, it was reported that a GeForce GTX 780 GHz Edition graphics card was in the works, and that led to the assumption that NVIDIA was preparing a new reference card.

However, it has now been discovered that NVIDIA is not, in fact, making a GTX 780 GHz edition. Given the fuss over GTX 780 Ti, that's understandable. GTX 780 Ti is the only new high-end card that the Santa Clara company has prepared. The only GeForce GTX 780 GHz edition that will make it to market is the one that Gigabyte put together.

As shown in the gallery, it is a triple-fan model with a black PCB and backplate. The GK110 GPU works on 1019 MHz, 1071 MHz GPU Boost, but the memory is left alone at 6 GHz. European online retail websites are already listing it, or will soon.

Seagate Spinpoint M9T, World's Thinnest 2TB HDD

Seagate has formally launched a hard disk drive that takes the 2.5-inch form factor to the next level in terms of compactness: the Spinpoint M9T.

Spinpoint M9T is the newest mobile HDD from Seagate, or rather the HDD division it bought from Samsung a while ago. The drive should serve notebooks, ultrabooks and external storage solutions (like drive cages) most, seeing as how it's 9.5 mm thin and all. Desktops won't have any issue using them though, unless your case lacks 2.5-inch bays or 3.5- to 2.5-inch converters.

In fact, Seagate says this is the world's thinnest 2 TB drive ever (that's right, that's the capacity of this thing). A 1.5TB version is available too, but the 2TB one is the real news. As one might guess, the 6 Gbps SATA III interface is implemented. Sadly, the price was left undisclosed in the press release.
