The Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan graphics card has provoked a sensation not only in terms of its unprecedented performance (for a single-GPU device) but also in terms of its price. As you may know, it comes at a recommended $999. Based on the same GK110 processor, the recently released GeForce GTX 780 adds 30% to the speed of Nvidia's single-GPU flagship of the previous generation but has a rather high price, too. It costs a recommended $649. Nvidia’s message to gamers is clear enough: pay more if you want more speed.
However, the GeForce GTX 780 release has overshadowed the announcement of what seems to be the most interesting 7 series card at the moment. Although its model names begins with a "7", the GeForce GTX 770 is based on the 28nm GK104 processor of the Kepler series. Moreover, the latter has the same configuration as the GeForce GTX 680's GPU but works at higher clock rates and with 17% faster GDDR5 memory. Coupled with the $50 lower recommended price ($399 vs. $499), the GeForce GTX 770 seems to be a more attractive option than the GeForce GTX 680.
So, it’s the GeForce GTX 770 graphics card that we’re going to talk about in this review.
