ZOTAC has launched the new Nvidia flagship GPU – the GeForce GTX 780. The card was originally launched by Nvidia yesterday. It is the first card in the company’s new GeForce 700 series and is meant to replace the previous flagship card by the company – the GTX 680. The card is available at an MSRP of Rs 47,990.

The inclusion of technology such as NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0 and GeForce Experience software makes it easy for everyone to get the best performance possible from their games and ZOTAC GeForce graphics cards,” Mr. Berger added. “All of the latest technologies and features can be found in our ZOTAC GeForce GTX 780, which is perfect for all gamers whether they want to play on their PC or stream it to an NVIDIA SHIELD gaming-portable.”
A new Splinter Cell Compilation game bundle is included with the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 780 in preparation of the upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
