Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 WindForce 3x OC review -
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 2GB WindForce 3x OC
Gigabyte is again is present on launch day with their GeForce GTX 770 WindForce 3x OC edition, a card that shares a lot of aesthetics and common denominators with their GeForce GTX 780. It's factory overclocked allowing it to close in towards GTX 780 performance. Next to that the dual-slot cooler will keep the card under 70 Degrees C at full load and it is totally silent.
But first things first, we take a closer look at NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 770. The GeForce GTX 770 is a top of the line segmented graphics card. It uses a familiar GPU though, yes the very same GPU as the GTX 680 actually. That makes it a chunk faster, alongside a clock frequency and memory increase it will be priced aggressively, that in a nutshell, my friends, is the new GeForce GTX 770. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last Light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
There has been a lot of chatter in the graphics arena as to what both AMD and NVIDIA are doing for the 2013 lineup of products. With the global economy at an all-time low both manufacturers have been slowing down their development cycles in order to save on R&D. But to not release new products will stall sales, as hey .. why should anybody upgrade? In the past two weeks we have seen two new products from NVIDIA, both are sort of refreshes, one being an SKU based on GeForce GTX Titan, in another jacket called the 780. The other is today's tested product, the Kepler based GeForce GTX 770. Kepler my, fellow gurus, is the codename for the architecture behind the GeForce series 600 and 700 graphics cards. The GeForce GTX 770 is a fact and selling in the stores starting today in both 2GB and 4GB versions. You might think that it's a GTX 680 all over again, not true ... the GTX 770 has a new base clock frequency, set higher at default for you, at 1046 MHz with a dynamic boost frequency that clocks up-to 1085 MHz. A nice gain however is the usage of faster DRR5 graphics memory, the GeForce GTX 770 runs at a reference stock clock frequency of 7Gbps (effective datarate). Obviously with the new cooling theme we have got to look at overclocking it a little as well, but have a quick peek at the product after which we'll dive into the GPU architecture, photo shoot and benchmarks.
But meet the GeForce GTX 770 WindForce 3x OC edition from Gigabyte, this is the 2GB WindForce 3x OC edition that comes factory clocked for you at 1137 MHz (Ref 1046) with a Boost clock of 1189 MHz (Ref 1085). Next to that, the GTX 770 series memory clock has been increased as well, at an effective data-rate of 7010 MHz.
Say yeah, let me show you what we'll talk about in this review and then head on over to the next page please.

Gigabyte F2A85XN-WIFI review
We review the cute and tiny mini-ITX based Gigabyte F2A85XN-WIFI motherboard and arm it with a AMD A10 6800K APU processor. The motherboard is only 15x15 CM yet offers great features and is incredible fun.
