    Galaxy Microsystems, a leading manufacturer of high end NVIDIA graphics cards, announced today the GeForce GTX 770 HOF Edition 2GB, an engineering marvel with unrivalled speeds, brilliant custom white PCB and matching white triple fan cooler. HOF, or Hall of Fame edition cards from Galaxy have overclock optimized designs built with the highest grade components available, and their GPUs are specially selected from the best of the best for the highest factory OC possible.

    The Galaxy GTX 770 HOF has the fastest core clock of any GTX 770 in the world, but the in-house designed custom PCB is one of its most impressive attributes. The new design includes a premium digital PWM controller, 8 + 2 phase power supply for more stable current and higher overclock potential, and top grade POSCAP and MLCC capacitors for longer life under heavy load. IR DirectFET MOSFETs offer superior cooling and EMI, high quality shielded inductors maintain cleaner signal and eliminate coil whine, and voltage read points allow hardcore overclockers to monitor their card directly using a their own multimeter.

    In order to quietly and sufficiently dissipate heat, a graphics card with record breaking clock speeds needs the most effective cooling possible, and the GTX 770 HOF has exactly that. The triple fan cooler has a grand total of five nickel plated heat pipes to move heat efficiently across the massive surface area of its extended length fan sink with aluminum fins. The Galaxy Force Air Bracket with full length vent ensures as much heat as possible is exhausted from the case to help prevent recirculation and keep ambient temps cool..

    So...what is the clock speed of this thing?


    And are they going to release 4GB variants, if so how much for? KFA2, Galaxy's sub-brand charged an arm and a leg for its identical 680s last year (same PCB/triple fan white cooler), I'm not sure how much they plan to charge for this thing, but it will probably be £100+ over other custom design 770s like Gigabyte's. Not sure if want...

    That white PCB is sexy.

    No DVI ports? I'd rather have those than the "Galaxy Force Air Bracket with full length vent"
    :wtf:

    It has DisplayPort to DVI adapters. They work fine, I'm using one on my card hooked up to a 1440p screen right now. No worries :)

    Now I'm itching to put one of these in a CM Storm Stryker.

    Nice looking card, but i never did like Galaxy cards because they always seem to be the hottest.

    I am having a little bit of a hard time understanding how this resolution is explained on the website over at Galaxy.

    I am about to (or want to) purchase this card and am wondering what is the max resolution thru the display port?

    the site mentions DVI and maximum resolutions 2560x1600 which seem to be a bit low compared with what the GTX770 reference card can do.

    I am wanting a second identical card later down the road, what will be my limitations if any of not having the DVI connections?

    this is the only GTX7X0 series with all the connectors on a single slot, a perfect water cooling and single slot candidate.

    thank you

    A single Display Port does a maximum of 2560x1600, the same as DVI-D. With the three Display Ports on that card used together it can make up to 7680x1600 using three monitors. So, you have no limitations with not using a DVI-D port. :toast:

    thanks :) that's 3 mini HDMI's and a single DisplayPort on this particular card.

    all the researching just compounds it and makes it more confusing somehow lol

    nVidia's site for the reference gives this...

    Maximum Digital Resolution (*1) - 4096x2160
    Maximum VGA Resolution - 2048x1536

    (*1) - 3840x2160 at 30Hz or 4096x2160 at 24Hz supported over HDMI. 4096x2160 (including 3840x2160) at 60Hz supported over Displayport. Support for 4k tiled MST displays requires 326.19 driver or later.

    http://www.geforce.com/hardware/desktop-gpus/geforce-gtx-770/specifications

    and of course reading up on DisplayPort at wiki and the DP site, I am not assuming then that I can support a single 4k monitor if need be on that single DisplayPort featured on the Galaxy GTX770 HOF?

    DP 1.2 also being daisy chainable... would you know if the Galaxy has a full 1.2 feature set?
