GeForce GTX 770 review -
Talk is cheap, pictures rule! Here's a couple of pages with photo's from our own photo-shoot.
So as you can see the GeForce GTX 770 is looking a lot like the GeForce GTX 690, Titan and 780. That's all thanks to the similar fashioned cooler being used, that I might add is pretty nice as it is very silent. Overall a nice looking card alright.
The card itself is a nice dual-slot solution and the cooling is vapor chamber based, in fact the card remains fairly silent which was a pleasant surprise alright. That cooler is awesome, the fan plexiglass is being used so you can actually look into the cooler's aluminum fins. The fan is outfitted with a special design, its airflow is carefully directed to take in air from the PC and exhaust it outside the PC, in order to optimize cooling efficiency while minimizing noise causing restrictions. GeForce GTX 770 will get four display connectors, you'll spot a full size Display port connector, one full size HDMI connector and two DVI connectors (dual-link). You can combine these connectors to setup a surround view (multi-monitor) setup. One card will get you more than sufficient performance to play your games on three monitors.
To date we still receive this question a lot, but dual-link DVI does not mean you can hook up two monitors to one connector. Dual-link means double the signal, that way monitor resolutions over 1920x1200 can be supported or you could use a 120Hz monitor. So explained very simple, dual-link DVI supports high-resolution (above 1920x1200) or high-refresh rate (120Hz) monitors.
The GeForce GTX 770 will have its price set similar towards the GTX 680, the small price premium this product does show in things like the cooling. The heatsink shell is made from casted aluminum and an injection molded magnesium alloy. This is a good conductor of heat plus it helps out in isolating noise. And preventing noise for this product was key to Nvidia.
Each GeForce GTX 770 will have a maximum power design of 230 Watts, but they are made to overclock as well. As such Nvidia is using an one 150W 8-pin PEG, and one 75W 6-pin PEG (PCI EXpress Graphics) connector. Another 75 to 150 Watts is delivered though the PCI slot and thus motherboard. This should be plenty for a nice tweak (or two). All board partners will definitely release their own custom cooled editions.
