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.
Now I noticed this only when I actually finished the review. On the backside, next to the PSU solder pins there are voltage options. And notice all the way on top an OCP (Overclock protection) and a OV (over-voltage) unlock points. Now they are hidden away a bit, but one can only imagine what happens when you solder them together :)
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 decent overclocking session.
For the GeForce GTX 770 launch we'll have multiple articles ranging from single GPU to 2-way SLI. 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 Palit Jetstream card installed on our test-setup.
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.
