NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 Announced

NVIDIA officially unveils their new GeForce GTX 770 graphics cards. Word is: "Available now from all e-tailers and retailers at a recommended retail price of $399, the GeForce GTX 770 features the same desirable styling as the recently released GeForce GTX 780, and compared to its predecessor is 15% faster thanks to higher clock speeds, 192 more CUDA Cores, and faster 7Gbps memory. The GTX 770 also supports our latest hardware-software enhancements, like GPU Boost 2.0, Overvolting, Display Overclocking, and ShadowPlay." Here are the first reviews:

Not one comment on the fact that current Nvidia drivers will not install unless you have an active internet connection.

That the drivers use .NET or install the 'GeForce Experience' is not a rebuttal. Some platforms already have a .NET install and as well might not wish to install the optional non-driver items.

SimCity was boycotted for its online requirements, Microsoft is losing its fan-base due to its online requirements of Xbox and now Nvidia is following right behind them starting with this absurdity.

I'll wager honest money, gentle reader, that you were not aware of the on-line requirement. Nvidia didn't seem to inform any of us prior. Try installing the drivers offline, see what happens. Not recommended.

What is he talking about? I have outbound protection enabled on Windows firewall, and even if the driver tries to establish connection, I never allow it. I only install the main driver and PhysX. No "phone home" required in order to complete the installation.
