EVGA has now officially announced its new Geforce GTX 780 Hydro Copper series that will feature two models, a standard water cooled GTX 780 Hydro Copper and the special edition GTX 780 Classified Hydro Copper.
For now, EVGA has only detailed the standard GTX 780 Hydro Copper while precise specifications for the Classified Edition are still a mystery. The standard GTX 780 Hydro Copper still features 2304 CUDA cores and 3GB of GDDR5 memory but also got a hefty factory-overclock so it works at 980MHz base and 1033MHz Boost clocks. The 3GB of GDDR5 memory are still clocked at 6008MHz and paired up with a 384-bit memory interface.
Both cards feature the full cover water block with swappable inlet/outlet design, chrome-plated C110 copper material and 0.25x0.35mm thin-pin matrix that helps transfer heat from the GPU to the liquid coolant. It also features a glowing EVGA logo that can be tuned via software and comes bundled with custom compression 3/8" and 1/2" fittings.
The Classified Edition is coming soon and only thing that we can see from the picture provided by EVGA is that it will probably feature a custom PCB and will need 8+8-pin PCI-Express power connectors which suggest that we'll see a hefty factory-overclock on that one.
Unfortunately, neither one of those Hydro Copper graphics cards are currently available but the standard one is listed at US $799.99. The price might sound a bit steep but we are quite sure that Swiftec-made Hydro Copper water block will do a much better job in keeping those temps at bay, especially when paired up with a high-end water cooling setup.
