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:

He was playing Faster Than Light the other day, really stressing those GeForce 670s! Come on Verno, play some real games, benchmark some Crysis for us or something.

I don't see any reason to upgrade my 670s, they are overkill for 99% of the stuff I play.

I dunno, are you sure you're getting full fidelity of Don't Starve using a couple of 670s in SLI? You might want to upgrade to a couple of Titans.

Whey the frack do every one of these review sites have the articles in multiple pages (some as many as 24!) with no option to view it all as one page? No thanks, I'll pass.

I'd rather they have 24 pages and a drop down list. I can't be bothered trying to find relevant information on 1 giant page. With the drop down menu I can switch between benchmarks and parts of the article I'm interested in reading.
Agreed. Being able to jump around and focus on the games/subjects I'm interested in is very useful.

I run a SilverStone Raven RV03, which uses a couple of 20cm fans to shift air up through the case.

20cm eh? Do they run at 20,000RPM to be effective? How do you stand the noise?
What you mean would be 20 mm.

Is that the fan you'd use in the world's tiniest PC? 20mm is slightly larger than the nail on your thumb.

That said, I find multiple 200mm/20cm fans to be overkill for a PC. As long as you have unobstructed airflow, multiple outlet fans and no shit standing around your case, a few 170mms work fine and are probably quite a bit quieter.

Creston

Well, I'm sure my 20cm fans are quieter than the 17cm fans. They move the same amount of air at lower RPMs. That being said, I didn't choose 20cm fans, they came with the case. I did put a 12cm in the front to blow on the SSD & HD. It's the one I hear, even set on low.

Hehe...my damn computer sounds like a helicopter trying to take off in heavy wind, i think i've just gone tone deaf tbh that i dont even recognize it unelss i try anymore

Unless you're interested in deep details on the hardware or specific game benches, only the first and/or last pages of the articles are worth reading anyway. I know from writing several of them myself that those pages are where the real meat is, with the rest being mostly page view farming filler...

Also, I just updated to the 320.18 drivers (graphics and PhysX only) with my network adapter completely disabled, no issues at all. It must be either downloading 3D Vision drivers on demand, or checking that you have an internet connection so that you can use GeForce Experience. To purport that there is an always-on requirement for updating the drivers is simply asinine...

This is false as many, including myself, get only a dialog box:

"Internet Connection Not Detected Installation will now stop."

Before any option to select or deselect any option. You can internet search the forums for yourself if you are so inclined as I am not calling you a liar, merely incorrect as many have commented in other more technically minded forums.

It's mostly PC gamers here, you're finding the same group of people on these forums that you'll find on most tech forums.

I had a hard drive failure last weekend and after a Windows reinstall, without network card drivers even installed yet, I was able to install the Nvidia driver package for my card without so much as a hiccup. I googled the message you're talking about, and for problems installing Nvidia drivers without an internet connection, and I couldn't find anything but people talking about drivers for Nvidia network controllers.

Clint Eastwood just said "Well he should have been connected to the internet".

I won't say you are a liar, you have sort of peaked my interest, just barely. But what do you do over there, connect to internet, download, disconnect, install, connect, post at blues, disconnect. I mean I just thought we stayed connected 24/7 by default, less hiccups.

Also, on Anand, if you Print This Article, it will pop out the entire thing in one page. Then you don't have to switch pages.

Not that you started this... but wow the lot of web pages really is a worry to some round here. It looked like most had an index, pick a game or two, look it over, next. What some think is a hassle round these parts.

Well that is very Interesting then... But I tested it offline and didn't get it on a re-install. So that means the driver does something on first install that it shouldn't do.... that is pretty lame ;/

If you hadn't mention this I would never even have noticed.

Can you tell who is an American just by how bad they are at the metric system? I think he really did mean 20cm which = 200mm of which there are MANY case fans available in that size.

I am waiting until I need to replace my 590 with something to get games to run smoothly. By then I can probably pick up 2 mid-range cards, SLI them, and get good performance.

And I don't buy AMD (ATI) cards because I have tried them repeatedly and I just don't like the results. (Or the drivers...)

On topic, this 770 should be on par with the 7970 GE if it's slightly faster than a 680, AMD doesn't really need to put out any $650-1000 cards to compete with nvidia in the 780 or titan segment, cause it's such a niche market it's not even worth showing up to the event, nobody is making much profit or getting much value from the whole ordeal.

Yeah, having the fastest card is really a form of marketing. For smart consumers that know what they want, it doesn't matter, but for low info consumers, it's bait: "Nvidia has the fastest cards, so I'll get an Nvidia"

200mm fans are the most efficient and noiseless fans there are and very large... so I think you misread that They are used in major case ventilation because they can push massive air volumes at less than 2000 RPM

If you ran it at 20000 RPM you wouldn't have a fan, you would have a propeller engine.

Myself I use 3x 200mm fans to ventilate HDD enclosure and the entire case (I have them as a huge block in the front blowing air inside the case) They are absolutely silent.

I see a mention of the next consoles having 8g of memory, but isn't that 'shared' memory? IE memory used as both system RAM and video card memory. That isn't remotely the same thing as 8g of dedicated vram.

no but it is all DDR5 much better than the dance dance revolution 3 we all have for our system memory, and there is no bottleneck of having the gpu ask through several layers of control for more memory, it just gets it. Considering how little use power house cpu's get in modern gaming anyway, the weakish cpu's in the new consoles should be adequate. It's how they're implementing their draconian control and spyware schemes that people should be worried about, not the hardware specs.

On topic, this 770 should be on par with the 7970 GE if it's slightly faster than a 680, AMD doesn't really need to put out any $650-1000 cards to compete with nvidia in the 780 or titan segment, cause it's such a niche market it's not even worth showing up to the event, nobody is making much profit or getting much value from the whole ordeal.
