ELSA rolled out its GeForce GTX 770 SAC (silent air cooling) graphics card (model: GD770-2GERX). It combines a custom-design PCB with its SAC cooling solution, both of which appear to be Inno3D designs. It offers factory-underclocked speeds of 1046 MHz core, 1070 MHz GPU Boost, and 7.00 GHz memory. The SAC cooler uses a series of copper heat pipes that make direct contact with the GPU, which convey heat to a monolithic aluminum fin-stack. This is ventilated by a pair of 80 mm fans, suspended on a die-cast metal shroud that's easily detachable by turning six thumb-screws. The card draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connectors; display outputs include two dual-link DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. The card should be priced on-par with most reference-design GTX 770 cards.
