NVIDIA’s GK104 based graphics cards made quite a splash while being used in some of the GTX 600 series cards, and now they make their presence known in the GTX 700 series as well. Today, we have a GTX 770 series card from ASUS to check out – the GTX 770 DirectCU II OC. We just knew ASUS was going to take the GTX 770 reference design, beef up the power delivery, and overclock it. It’s what they do after all! So, let’s take this latest offering from ASUS for a test drive and see how well their efforts have paid off.
Outside of the release of the 7990 and TITAN, from AMD and NVIDIA respectively, the GPU landscape has been a bit mundane in 2013. This week has brought with it the release of something new(ish) from the NVIDIA camp in the GTX 780, today will we look at the MSI GTX 770 OC. These cards, I heard someone say, are ‘a GTX 680 on steroids’. At this point all I know is it sports a new cooler and is part of MSI’s new Gaming Series. Get cozy as I take you on a short journey showing you the new card, and how it stacks up against the competition.
It’s release day again for NVIDIA, and this time we have the second card in the 700 series. We had the GTX 780 a week ago, and now it’s the GTX 770’s turn for the spotlight. Based on the same GK104 core as the GTX 680, the GTX 770 could be just a rebrand, but maybe there’s more. Continue on to see what we can uncover.
