Neat stuff, thanks for the post, and the trip down memory lane
Yes that was first K|NGP|N version I remembered my friend travel to Germany and bought me from first stock sent to EVGA Europe, after that they didn't had few months available.
Winter 2014. I jumped like crazy to GTX780 Classified and when I saw GTX780Ti I was little angry, full chip, EVGA launced GTX780Ti Classified, and when I saw trailer for K|NGP|N model that was end.
I sold GTX780 Classified and bought GTX780Ti KP... that 780 Classified still work and guy who bought from me never paid so much some GPU and he will use her long long time because it's not hard core gamer.
But when I start to play games I recognized that difference between 780 and 780Ti is exactly what I need.
Difference was visible and perfectly fit in that moment for details and fps in available games for 1080p.
Only confirm that I made good decision to switch to 780Ti, I still play games on her only not new games because I want best experience when I upgrade GPU.
It's bad because no way to find GTX1080Ti K|NGP|N Hydro Copper cheap as other GTX1080Ti models... and RTX2080Ti is to expensive for me.
