Gigabyte GTX 780 Ti

Hey,

i just saw that gigabyte specifies oh it's website that the GTX 780 Ti with Windforce 3x cooler has a power consumption of 450 watt is that even possible?

 

 

No I believe 450 watt is the cooling capacity of the fans

 

"450W Cooling capacity "

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cooling_capacity

Cooling capacity is the measure of a cooling system's ability to remove heat.[1] The SI units are watts (W)

To my knowledge a GPU should only be able to draw 375 watt (2 x 8 pin at 150 watt + 75 watt from the PCI - e bus itself) is my knowledge wrong or did gigabyte mess up?

A GPU can be pushed all the way up to 1.5kW - it just needs the cooling for it.

Apparently Dancop and some others awhile back at an overclocking competition apparently managed to get a 780 TI KP to like 2000 mhz, it was peaking near 2400w from the wall, lmao

They had to hook up 2 1500w PSU's together with a fancy PCB just to power it lol

Super Flower have a 2kW PSU that can probably do that kind of power with 90% efficiency :P
