Palit GTX780 Jetstream 6GB SLi (Ultra HD 4K) review

Rating: 8.5.

Nvidia have always said that the GTX Titan and GTX Titan Black graphics cards were never released to target the gaming audience, however that hasn’t stopped demanding enthusiast gamers buying them by the bucket load. As the GTX780 Ti is ‘only’ equipped with 3GB of GDDR5 memory the move to ‘Titan gaming’ has been the only way for a wealthy Nvidia user to double the memory count. If you want to game at Ultra HD 4K resolution – or across multiple screens then the 6GB of GDDR5 makes sense. Nvidia knew there was a gap and have recently been working with their partners to double the memory count on the older non TI GTX780.

We received two of these samples direct from the oriental Palit headquarters. Both cards feature the triple fan Jetstream cooler and have an enhanced 8 Phase PWM. We look at the hardware in more detail on the next page.

    Nice looking cards. only thing that puts me off is the fact I owned Palit before and two of their cards died (earlier generation card).

  • Ben

    They are well priced for the performance you get, but I agree, the clock speeds are terrible out of the box.

  • Joe

    No availiability of these cards anywhere – but I bought Gainward cards from OCUK , same performance and hopefully overclock as well too 🙂

  • Slashwat

    I would rather have had 6GB GTX780 Ti’s , I can’t see any high end user wanting a card that was released a year ago and now they have added more memory to it.

    Nvidia are very clever, they DO know a 6GB GTX780TI will just kill the more expensive card sales (Titan Black) completely.

    Thanks for the review.
    I’m selling my 690 and I’m thinking of upgrading to 2 of these…
    You guys put a lot of effort in the review and it much appreciated.
