If we rotate the card and look at the backside we can see two SLI connectors offering you to double up your rendering performance if you wanted to do that. This GeForce GTX 760 will have a maximum power design of give or take 160 Watts, but they are made to overclock as well. No back-plate BTW.
The card comes with one 150W 8-pin PEG (PCI EXpress Graphics) connectors. Another 75 to 150 Watts is delivered though the PCI slot and thus motherboard. This should be enough for a decent overclocking session.
In this article we'll also look at performance based on high-end yet more moderate processors and then on the X79 platform with an overclocked Core i7 3960X running at 4600 MHz. Here we see the card as tested today installed on our test bench.
So overall you are going to witness some pretty interesting stuff in the article. That's it for this photo-shoot though. We need to tell you a tale or two about the GPU and the architecture.
