NVIDIA has officially slashed the price of their GeForce GTX 770 graphics card by 15% to take on AMD’s latest Radeon R9 285. The GeForce GTX 770 was first introduced in May of 2013 and priced at $399. The price was then adjusted to $329 when AMD introduced their Radeon R9 290.
NVIDIA’s GeForce 700 series of cards are made up of the GTX 760, GTX 770 and GTX 780. The GTX 770 is actually based on the same GPU as the GeForce GTX 680. It makes use of the 28nm GK104 chip. This chip features 8 streaming multiprocessors (SMX units), 1536 stream processors, 1218 texture units and 32 ROPs. The GTX 770 is clocked a little higher than the GTX 680 with a 1049 MHz core clock and a boost clock of 1085 MHz. The memory is also higher at 7010 MHz (effective). With these improvements and since many companies are already used to working with the GK104 chip this should make for better performance and a more powerful card. Today we are taking a look at a GTX 770 from MSI. It is their GTX 770 Twin Frozr Gaming OC Edition which features MSI’s own Twin Frozr IV cooling solution, Military Class III components and 3 different operating modes (silent, gaming & OC).
