Introduction

When Nvidia launched the Kepler-based 600 series graphics cards, it represented a revolution of sorts from the previous generation cards, with engineering innovations and features to improve not only gaming horsepower but also power efficiency and temperatures. Proving popular with gamers and enthusiasts alike, Kepler was, quite simply, a resounding success. The question later became: where to go from there?

Indeed, you’re only as good as your last success, and today marks the highly anticipated launch of Nvidia’s latest, the GeForce GTX 780. We, like many others, expect big things from “Kepler 2.0″. But gaming horsepower is only part of the equation these days; lower power consumption and temperatures also tell the tale, and Nvidia is promising improvements for these as well. Fine and good, but we’re a demanding bunch and we want more. And to address that, Nvidia is introducing more GeForce Experience features such as Shadowplay, as well as Adaptive Temperature Control, and not to mention an updated GPU Boost 2.0.

We hate the game-changer cliché, but Nvidia really did rewrite the rulebook with the original GPU Boost, redefining the “old” way of establishing clock speeds, monitoring temperatures, and even overclocking, as those are now but a distant memory. And with GPU Boost 2.0, Nvidia is promising an evolution and refinement of what makes it special. Having now seen it up close, and spent time working with it directly, we’re inclined to agree.

So, is the GeForce GTX 780 fast? Hellya. Does it overclock like a beast? Hellya. There’s a boatload of information to cover here, so let’s get to it.
