Inno3D has released a new GeForce GTX 760 card in their GeForce GTX 760 iChill HerculeZ 3000. This card is based on the same board that Inno3D used on the GeForce GTX 770 iChill HerculeZ 3000, so it has a 7-phase VRM, 8-layer PCB and a very large HerculeZ 3000 triple-fan cooling solution and backplate. Besides the GPU the only real difference between the two cards is that the GTX 760 iChill HerculeZ 3000 uses dual 6pin power inputs whereas the GTX 770 iChill HerculeZ 3000 uses a combination of 8pin and 6pin connections.
The card gives you a base clock speed of 1060 MHz core and 1124 MHz boost and 6.20 GHz for the memory (effective). The NVIDIA reference design has clocks of 960 MHz core, 1033 MHz boost and 6.00 GHz memory. The card has 2GB of GDDR5 memory. The HerculeZ 3000 cooler makes use of two large aluminum fin stacks with 5 heatpipes that are ventilated by three 80mm fans. The fans are inside of a metal shroud that can be removed by taking out a few thumbscrews. This makes the card very easy to clean.
The back of the card does feature a nice backplate with the iChill logo on it.
No word yet on if this card will make it to the US, but it has been launched in China for 1,799 RMB (US $294).
