Default Gigabyte GTX 770 WindForce 3X OC Review Comment Thread

Gigabyte's GTX 770 WindForce OC boasts increased clock speeds that bring its performance nearly in line with a GTX 780. However, it doesn't cost a dime more than the $399 reference version.

Nice review but why don't you compare it to other brands so we can have an idea?

It would be cool to have this vs the ASUS one vs MSI :) Because i'm pretty sure that the Twin Frozr destroys it for temp/noise ratio while being cheaper. Comparing it to reference coolers is pretty unfair for them, we all know that reference coolers are pretty bad

Great Review. A very east job for NVIDIA remasking the 680 into a 770 but then the price is right.
P.S. Under the power consumption chart "With an overclocked GK110 core beating at its heart" - GK104 it is.

MSI Lightning will be reviewed the week after next. Other than that, I don't have any other GTX 770 cards.

Yeah, I wish!

I'd post it next week but....I'll likely be working on a review for a 5GHz bundle of joy early next week.

Not only does this make Gigabyte’s $399 offering an enticing option for budget-minded gamers



really happy with mine, though. much less happy with the drivers...TDR and random driver crashes on the desktop. fun times
