GALAXY GTX 780 Ti HOF+ - Performance TestIntroduction
The GTX 780 Ti HOF+ is the top-end graphics card from GALAXY. GALAXY claims that the GTX 780 Ti HOF+ will be the highest performing GTX 780 Ti out of the box, though this crown has been overthrown by the mighty EVGA GTX 780 Ti Classified K|NGP|N Edition few months later. This graphics card features a custom 2.5-slot dual fan cooler and hybrid heat pipe with Vapor Chamber cooling technology to ensure excellent cooling performance. The Hyper Boost hardware overdrive switch supercharges the card’s clock speed to the next level of performance. The GTX 780 Ti HOF+ combines extraordinary power and cooling performance to provide an entirely new class of graphics performance. It is every overclocker’s dream card and I am so lucky to get a hand on it and have it benched on my test rig.Product Link: http://www.galaxytech.com/__EN_GB__/Product2/ProductDetail?proID=499Specifications

On paper there is no doubt that the GTX 780 Ti HOF+ is indeed a monster. The graphics card offers 2880 stream processors, 48 ROPs, 240 TMUs, and 3 GB of GDDR5 memory on a 384-bit memory bus. Featuring NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 technology, the graphics card has a GPU base clock of 1020 MHz, a boost clock of 1085 MHz and the video memory is clocked at 1750 MHz (7000 MHz effective).Unboxing
The GTX 780 Ti HOF+ ships in a white box featuring HOF design.
The back of the box describes some of the key features and specifications of the graphics card.
The GTX 780 Ti HOF+ features a 10-layer signature white PCB and 2.5-slot thick grey coloured cooler along with a pair of 90 mm low noise EBR liquid bearing fans on board.
The cooler is a The “Hall of Fame” logo on the cooler has a white LED backlight that pulsates when running. That looks stunning!
The NVIDIA GK110 Revision B1 GPU chip is soldered at the middle of the graphics card. For record, GK110 was first introduced as a Tesla-only product for powering demanding GPU compute applications. NVIDIA has now also released it as a GeForce GPU. It uses 7.1 billion transistors on a die size that we measured to be 561 mm². The GPU is produced on a 28 nanometer process at TSMC, Taiwan.
The GTX 780 Ti HOF+ is equipped with a 10-phase VRM, which uses CHiL CHL8318 controller, IR3550 PowIRstage DrMOS chips, and a total current output capability of 480A. All of these power delivery features should be adequate for extreme overclocking session.
The memory chips are based on Hynix-AFR GDDR5 that are known to have a great overclock ability.
The graphics card draws power from a pair of white 8-pin PCIe power connectors.
The SLI connectors are available for multi-GPU configurations that support up to 4-way SLI.
The I/O panel includes two DVI ports, an HDMI port and a DisplayPort 1.2. These four interfaces support up to four monitors simultaneously for 3D Surround setup. Besides that, we have an exclusive Hyper Boost button which will turbocharge the clock speed when pushed.
The aluminum backplate’s unique design not only adds some aesthetic looks to the graphic card but also provides extra rigidity to the PCB. This is a welcomed addition to this new series of HOF graphics card.
The Hall of Fame cooler features a large aluminium fin heatsink, which is connected with four nickel-plated copper heat pipes measuring 8 mm in diameter to dissipate the heat efficiently. GALAXY utilizes the Vapor Chamber technology which is known to perform better than regular cooling solutions.
Included in the box is a pair of dual 4-pin-molex-to-8-pin-PCie Y-adapter, a user manual, a quick setup guide, the driver/utility CD, a DVI-to-D-sub adapter, a door hanger and a unique GALAXY paper figure.
