If we rotate the card and look at the backside we can see two SLI connectors, so in theory four cards in quad-SLI GPU mode are supported. Quad SLI however is difficult and often a maze of driver problems, Nvidia has never really recommended and actively supported quad-SLI. But for a handful of benchmarks and sheer e-peen, it will work OK'ish. We really recommend to go with a maximum of 2 maybe three cards.
Each GeForce GTX 770 will have a maximum power design of 230 Watts, but they are made to overclock as well. As such it is using two 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 plenty for a decent overclocking session.
Here we see the card installed on our test bench. Looking good !
So overall you are going to witness some pretty interesting stuff in the upcoming days. That's it for this photoshoot though. We need to tell you a tale or two about the GPU and the architecture. Let's march onwards.
