Nvidia GTX 770 Spec Confirmed
Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
The new GTX 770 is basically a GTX 680 with a few tweaks and while on the surface that might sound a little lazy, it’s actually rather awesome because lets face it, the GTX 680 is still a fantastic card, heck it more than most people can even afford to install in their system and well above what is required to play the latest games at 1080p high / mix settings.
Based around the GK104 hardware, with 1536 CUDA cores and a 1080MHz Boost clock, the GTX 770 is no slouch in the performance department, with the same hardware as the GTX 680 but with higher clocks, but with higher clocks comes higher power requirements and more heat, something that has been well address as the card now pulls around 230W TDP via a 6+8pin PCI-Express power connection and all this extra power is kept cool by what appears to be the GTX Titan stock cooler, which is by far the coolest looking cooler on the market today, although it is possible that it has seen some internal modifications or improvements since it was released as the GTX Titan cooler.
Add to this GPU Boost 2.0, that will take the 1046MHz base GPU clock up to a tasty 1085MHz, 2GB or 4GB of memory @ 7000MHz and a 256-bit memory interface and you’ve got some seriously enthusiastic performance.
While no price has been confirmed just yet, you can bet Nvidia will want to stick it to AMD and price it well against the HD 7970 GHz Edition, so likely around £400 would be a safe bet.
