As we keep on getting closer to the launch of NVIDIA’s 700 Series more and more cards keep on getting spotted. MSI’s upcoming GeForce GTX 770 Lightning graphics card has been spotted. This card will feature a custom PCB and MSI’s Twin Frozr IV cooling solution. Read on to check out the photos!
MSI’s GeForce GTX 770 card will be powered by a refined GK104 core, which has the codename GK104-25-A2. It will be clocked a little higher than the original GK104-400 core and will have some minor improvements. It will feature 1536 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory across a 256-bit bus. We know that the reference GTX 770 will be clocked at 1046 MHz core and 1085 MHz boost. Since this is a custom model that does use a custom PCB we expect it to be factory overclocked out of the box.
The card also will make use of MSI’s Twin Frozr IV cooling. It is made up of two large 100mm PWN fans with propeller blade technology. Also you have a high density fin grid array and heatpipes that use MSI’s SuperPipe technology. The cooler has a cool feature that runs the fans in reverse for 30 seconds after boot up to remove dust. The card ships with MSI’s GPU reactor module which adds more power to the VRM.
The GPU is powered by dual 8pin connectors compared to dual 6pin connectors that we have seen on reference models. Display outputs include dual link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort. While the reference GTX 770 cards are expected to be $399-449 expect a premium price on this card. Expected release date is May 31st 2013.
