MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning review -
Alright pictures. Here are a couple of pages with photos then and most of it from our own photo-shoot :)
Above and below is the card, the MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning with that TwinFrozr IV cooler, the card is a 2GB model. We expect the product to retail for roughly 400 EUR/USD, we hope price will drop a bit in the next few weeks. We had silent hopes for a 4GB version, but the card will come with two GB of graphics memory, that's definitely sufficient if you are a hardcore gamer with a monitor resolution of 1920x1200. If you plan to game on triple monitors then 4 GB models would be my preference though, as that would definitely help you out in the uber high resolutions and hefty AA combinations.
With the GeForce GTX 770 you will receive 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 give 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 card is quite good looking with the gold plated colored monitor connectors. The top part has been kept open for ventilation so that the card can exhaust hot air. Combine it with three monitors for surround monitor gaming or you could opt to go with 3D Vision, bringing an immersive stereoscopic 3D experience to the PC. The card is equipped with a GK104 GPU that harbors the new Kepler architecture and comes factory overclocked for you at 1150 MHz (Ref 1046) with a Boost clock of 1202 MHz (Ref 1085). The GTX 770 series memory clock has been kept at an effective data-rate of 7010 MHz.
The GPU is placed on a fully customized PCB and has a 12 phase PWM design. , MSI offers this Lightning edition factory clocked for you at a modest 1150 MHz (Ref 1046) with a Boost clock of 1202 MHz (Ref 1085). And as our article will show later on, there's room for tweaking as we got this puppy running stable close to 1300 MHz on the boost frequency.
The Lightning is 28.5 cm in length by the way. Included in the bundle is a small manual, flexible SLI connector, power connector converters, manuals and a driver CD oh and one card. Also included are small connectors which you can use to monitor voltage with a digital multi-meter.
We benchmark test and review the MSI GeForce GTX 780 LIGHTNING edition. The MSI team has been hard at work with this product, completely revamping the design, the PCB, the cooler, and tweakability.
