Palit and EVGA ready 6GB GTX 780s

EVGA and Palit are proud to introduce the first GTX 780s with double the standard memory amount, which should help users push increasingly high resolutions and textures.



The Palit model will be available with their JetStream cooler (shown above) and EVGA will be offering their cards with Nvidia's Stock cooler and their ACX coolers.



EVGA will also be making their 6GB ACX model available through their Step-Up program, allowing those who recently purchased one of their GPUs (within 90 days) will be able to upgrade to this model paying only the price difference.



While a 6GB frame buffer sounds fantastic, I doubt many will be able to make full use of it but an upgrade is still an upgrade here.

Hopefully a 6GB model of the 780Ti will soon follow here, given how raw power is also required for high res gaming and not just VRAM. Nvidia may have blocked this in order to sell more Titan Black cards, but this is unconfirmed.

The release date has not be confirmed at present, but EVGA say that their 6GB models will be available for a MSRP of $549.99.

Honestly is this just for chasing after the 290x with the extra ram?

I guess SLI is the point for these to play 4k effectively. As we saw with the Titan, there wasnt much benefit to having 6gb when using a single card, but i bet with 2 or 3 in SLI the 6Gb vram will be uselful as you should have the power to run 4k resolution with some AA.

As you say though, 6gb 780 in a single card scenario will be pretty pointless.

In general 4K is pointless at the moment. The refresh rates are awful and the delay as well, all those monitors are good for atm are movies and pictures.

I'm sticking to 1080P gaming for another few years so I'll stick to my 780 Ti for a while longer.

6gb cards seem to be coming from everywhere now, Asus just released a 6GB 280X.
Not that a 280X needs 6gb, you will hit the performance wall before you hit the Vram wall.
