A Geforce GTX 780 Ti card with red and gold metal adhesive strips included

Asus has figured out another way to make its GeForce GTX 780 Ti DirectCU II graphics card stand out from the crowd (as if the custom cooling solution wasn't enough). The upcoming card will come bundled with red and gold stickers metal adhesive strips that you can apply to the part for a custom look. Use of the stickers strips is totally optional, of course, and you can leave the black colored heatsink alone if you want. Otherwise, the stickers strips allow you to add semi-custom accents that are a little bit like racing stripes.

Color options aside, Swedish language website posted what it claims are final specs for the upcoming card (GTX780TI-D2OC-3GD5). Assuming the info is accurate, the card will ship with 3GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 7,000MHz on a 384-bit bus. The GPU base clockspeed is set at 954MHz and the boost speed is 1020MHz, and it has 2,880 CUDA cores.

It will also sport a pair of modified 8-pin power connectors, along with a native Dual-Link DVI-I port, Dual-Link DVI-D port, HDMI output, and a DisplayPort.

No word yet on price or release date.

Asus reached out to Maximum PC to clarify that these aren't simply stickers (not of the paper variety, anyway), but actual metal strips with adhesive on the back.
