NVIDIA Kills the GTX 780 Ti, GTX 780, GTX 770, Cuts GTX 760 Pricing

Following the launch of its GeForce GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards, NVIDIA announced discontinuation of three of its top-selling high-end graphics cards, the GeForce GTX 780 Ti, the GeForce GTX 780, and the GeForce GTX 770. The $549 GeForce GTX 980 cannibalizes the GTX 780 Ti and GTX 780; and is cheaper to make, with 2 billion fewer transistors, four fewer memory chips, and a lighter VRM; while the GTX 970 targets several key sub-$350 products, blasting the GTX 770 to irrelevance. NVIDIA also tweaked pricing of its GeForce GTX 760 performance-segment graphics card, which now starts at $219. The company is expected to launch its replacement, the GeForce GTX 960, some time in October, 2014.

NVIDIA Tweaking GeForce GTX 770 Price to Compete with R9 285

NVIDIA's response to AMD Radeon R9 285 isn't major (a new product launch). The company believes it already has the products out there to take on it. The company is likely working with add-in card partners, and retailers, to tweak pricing of its performance-segment GeForce GTX 770 2GB, bringing its price around the US $275 mark, $25 more than the cheapest R9 285, and roughly the same price as factory-overclocked ones. Its pricing is down from the $325 point it was hovering over.

The GTX 770 costs roughly the same as the GTX 760, for NVIDIA to sell, with the former only imposing slightly higher VRM requirements. Our tests show that the GTX 770 still ends up with better energy efficiency figures than the R9 285. Based on the 28 nm "GK104" silicon, the GTX 770 packs 1,536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface.

Galaxy GeForce GTX 770 HOF ICE to Feature Frosty White FC Block

Galaxy's HOF (hall of fame) line of graphics cards for overclockers is characterized by the company's unique choice of white colored PCBs. The company is giving final touches to a GeForce GTX 770-based graphics card that's prepped for liquid cooling, and comes with a factory-fitted, full-coverage water-block. The block is unlike anything we've seen before. Its top and fitment ports are frosty white, with a brushed aluminium accent along its center-right. The actual card isn't pictured yet, but something tells us that Galaxy could reuse the PCB of its air-cooled GTX 770 HOF. We're not sure who's behind the block, but given that EKWB designed frosty-white blocks for Galaxy/KFA2 cards in the recent past, Galaxy may have approached it for the goods. There's no word on when Galaxy will launch the liquid-cooled GTX 770 HOF.

Galaxy Launches its Gamer Series Graphics Cards

Galaxy launched its "Gamer" line of performance-segment graphics cards. The two were first unveiled in December 2013. The series, for now, includes two models, the GeForce GTX 760 Gamer, and the GeForce GTX 770 Gamer. Both cards appear to be based on a common board design, which uses a custom-design PCB featuring a 7-phase VRM that draws power from a combination of 6-pin and 8-pin power connectors; and a dual-slot cooling solution with an aluminium fin-stack heatsink that's ventilated by a pair of 80 mm fans. Both cards offer a 5 to 10 percent factory overclock. For now, the two are launched only in the Greater China region.

NVIDIA to Cut Pricing of GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 Post GTX 780 Ti

In addition to launching the GeForce GTX 780 Ti, NVIDIA could adjust prices of two of its key high-end SKUs to make them competitive with AMD's lineup. Prices of the GeForce GTX 780, which is currently priced at $649.99, and retails for as low as $620, could be slashed down to $499.99. The $399 GeForce GTX 770, which is losing ground to the Radeon R9 280X, which is $100 cheaper than it, could see its price slashed down to $329.99. The GeForce GTX 780 Ti could become NVIDIA's fastest single-GPU product, faster than even the GTX TITAN, and could occupy a $699.99 price-point. We're not sure if NVIDIA will continue to manufacture GTX TITAN. In addition, buyers of GTX 780 and GTX 770 will receive two things, a game bundle and a discount coupon for NVIDIA Shield. The bundle includes Batman: Arkham Origins, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, and Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The discount coupon for NVIDIA Shield will shave a cool $100 off its $299.99 price.

NVIDIA Sets Up Price Cuts in Response to Radeon R9 Series

In the wake of AMD rolling out the $299 Radeon R9 280X, $199 Radeon R9 270X, and $139 Radeon R7 260X; NVIDIA is giving final touches to price cuts to several of its SKUs, beginning with the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost. Originally priced at $149, pricing of the card could be adjusted closer to that of the R7 260X. Our review of the card revealed NVIDIA's offering to be a staggering 24 percent faster overall. NVIDIA could also lower the price of the now $180 GeForce GTX 660. All eyes, however, are on the $249 GeForce GTX 760, which is sandwiched by AMD's offerings.

There's also talk of NVIDIA developing a new SKU, possibly the "GeForce GTX 760 Ti" or "GeForce GTX 765" (likely names), to occupy the $240~260 price range. We expect this chip to be essentially an overclocked GeForce GTX 670 with GPU Boost 2.0; which may not quite go after the R9 280X, since it's already performing on par with the GeForce GTX 770. The new price cuts could take effect very soon; although DigiTimes isn't ruling out a second round of price-cuts in November, either.

EK Introduces Two New Custom PCB Type GeForce GTX 770 Water Blocks

EK Water Blocks, Ljubljana based premium water cooling gear manufacturer, is proud to introduce two new Full-Cover water blocks for non-reference design NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 graphics cards.

EK-FC770 GTX DCII is a high performance full-cover water block engineered specifically for ASUS design GeForce GTX 680 as well as GTX 770 DirectCU II series graphics cards. This water block directly cools the GPU, RAM as well as VRM (voltage regulation module) as water flows directly over these critical areas thus allowing the graphics card and it's VRM to remain stable under high overclocks. EK-FC770 GTX DCII water block also features a very high flow design therefore it can be easily used in liquid cooling systems using weaker water pumps. EK-FC770 GTX DCII is a modified version of EK-FC680 GTX DCII featuring EK-FC Terminal port system instead of EK-FC Bridge & Link CSQ system. As a result these new water blocks are fully compatible with existing EK-FC680 GTX DCII Backplate. Two versions are available:

Leadtek Unveils WinFast GeForce GTX 770 Hurricane III

Leadtek unveiled its premium non-reference design GeForce GTX 770 graphics card, the WinFast GTX 770 Hurricane III (model: WFGTX770-2GD5DF3). The card combines what looks like the old GeForce GTX 680 reference PCB with 5 phases enabled; with a custom design cooling solution. The cooler uses a large aluminum fin stack to which heat from the GPU is fed by five copper heat pipes, of which two are 8 mm-thick, and three 6 mm-thick. A pair of 85 mm fans ventilate the heatsink. The card ships with a tiny factory-overclock of 1159 MHz core, 1111 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 7.00 GHz memory. It features 2 GB of memory across a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. Leadtek didn't reveal pricing.

MSI Announces GeForce GTX 770 Gaming 4 GB Graphics Card

MSI rolled out a 4 GB variant of its GeForce GTX 770 Gaming graphics card. Bearing the model number "N770 TF 4GD5/OC," the card is virtually identical to the 2 GB original, except double the memory amount. The card uses sixteen 2 Gbit memory chips arranged on either sides of the non-reference design PCB. The card offers factory-overclocked speeds of 1137 MHz core, 1189 MHz GPU Boost, and 7.00 GHz memory. It features a TwinFrozr IV cooling solution that uses a pair of 100 mm fans to ventilate a large aluminum fin stack. MSI didn't reveal pricing or availability details, but we expect the card to be priced around the $450 mark thanks to its high-performance cooler, factory-overclock, and double the memory amount as standard.

Inno3D Rolls Out GeForce GTX 760 iChill HerculeZ 3000

Inno3D rolled out its fourth GeForce GTX 760 board design, apart from the reference-design card, the HerculeZ OC, and the HerculeZ 2000. The new GTX 760 iChill HerculeZ 3000 is based on the same exact board as the company's GeForce GTX 770 iChill HerculeZ 3000, with a meaty 7-phase VRM, an 8-layer PCB, and the large triple-fan HerculeZ 3000 cooling solution with a backplate. Apart from the GPU, the only physical difference between the two cards, is the power inputs. This card uses just a pair of 6-pin connectors, while the GTX 770 iChill HerculeZ 3000 relies on a combination of 8-pin and 6-pin connectors.

The GeForce GTX 760 iChill HerculeZ 3000 uses a PCB heavily based on NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 680 reference design, with a 5+2 phase VRM. It gives you out of the box clock speeds of 1060 MHz core, 1124 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.20 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory, compared to NVIDIA-reference clocks of 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory. The card features 2 GB of memory. Its cooler uses two large aluminum fin stacks that dissipate heat from the GPU, drawn by five heat pipes; and ventilated by a trio of 80 mm fans. The fans are suspended on a die-cast metal shroud that's easily detachable by pulling out a few thumb-screws, to clean the fans and underlying heatsinks. Although there's nothing to cool on the reverse side of the PCB, Inno3D dropped in a back-plate anyway. Inno3D didn't reveal global launch plans, but in China, the card should retail for 1,799 RMB (US $294).

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 770 Extreme Edition Detailed

ZOTAC launched its premium GeForce GTX 770 Extreme Edition SKU in the Greater China region. The SKU outranks AMP!, and offers a suite of enthusiast features, such as a strong VRM, and better air cooling. It's not unlike the GTX 680 Extreme Edition or GTX 670 Extreme Edition. To begin with, the GTX 770 Extreme Edition features a slightly updated Gamer Force cooler, with higher aluminum fin density for the GPU heatsink, and a chunkier metal heatsink to cool the VRM. A back-plate cools components on the reverse side of the PCB.

The GTX 770 Extreme Edition features the same exact PCB as its predecessor, featuring a 12-phase (8+3+1) VRM, which makes use of noise-free chokes, a combination of conductive polymer and tantalum capacitors, three proadlizers (multi-phase capacitors for power conditioning), and International Rectifier PowIRstage driver-MOSFETs. A combination of CHiL CHL8318 (8-phase) and CHL 8214-03 (4-phase) chips are used to run the VRM. The main heatsink uses a copper base (not vapor-chamber) to make contact with the GPU, from which five 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes sprout out, transporting heat to the far-reaches of the heatsink. A pair of 92 mm PWM-controlled fans ventilate the heatsink, which are held by a sporty aluminum shroud.

Inno3D Announces Trio of GeForce GTX 760 Graphics Cards

Inno3D dropped its hat into the GeForce GTX 760 ring with three offerings, the NVIDIA reference-design base-model; the HerculeZ OC 2 GB; and the HerculeZ 2000 4 GB (pictured in that order). The base model is practically identical to NVIDIA's reference design, except its PCB is colored blue. It sticks to NVIDIA-reference clock speeds of 980 MHz core, 1033 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz memory. This card will likely sell at the baseline price of $249.99.

Moving on, the HerculeZ OC 2 GB uses a slightly compacted variant of the HerculeZ 2000 dual-fan cooler. It still gets you the easy-to-remove metal cooler shroud by turning a few thumb-screws, giving you access to the GPU heatsink underneath. This card features 2 GB of memory, and factory-overclocked speeds of 1006 MHz core and 1059 MHz GPU Boost, while leaving the memory clock untouched. This card could command a $10-20 premium. Lastly, there's the HerculeZ 2000 4 GB. This card features the same HerculeZ 2000 dual-fan cooler and PCB as the one found on Inno3D's GeForce GTX 770 OC graphics card. It offers the same clock speeds as the HerculeZ OC 2 GB, but with double the memory amount, at 4 GB. Given its memory amount and premium cooling, we won't be surprised if it pole-vaults the $300 mark.

ELSA Announces 4 GB GeForce GTX 770 SAC

NVIDIA partner ELSA, which specializes in Quadro and GeForce graphics cards, rolled out its GeForce GTX 770 SAC graphics card, featuring 4 GB of memory. The card appears to be sourced from Inno3D, which can be made out with the design of the cooler. The cooler features an easily detachable shroud, which lets you clean the underlying heatsink. This factory-overclocked graphics card ships with 1070 MHz core, 1100 MHz GPU Boost, and 7.00 GHz memory. Based on the GK104 silicon, the GeForce GTX 770 features 1,536 CUDA cores, 128 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide memory interface. ELSA didn't announce pricing.

GeForce GTX 760 Last 700 Series SKU for 2013?

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 760 could be the company's last GTX 700 series retail desktop SKU, at least for this year. A leaked slide by the company lays out how this year's three new GTX 700 series SKUs pretty much seal the product stack. It reveals that GeForce GTX TITAN will remain NVIDIA's flagship graphics card throughout the year. The thousand-dollar single-GPU card is based on the GK110 silicon, with 2,688 CUDA cores, and 6 GB of memory. The GeForce GTX 780, introduced this March, replaces the GeForce GTX 680 on the product-stack, even at its much higher launch price of $650, compared to its predecessor's $500. The GTX 780 has no competition from AMD at its price-point.

The slide also reveals that the GeForce GTX 770, which was launched late last month, will replace the GeForce GTX 670 from the stack. Based on the GK104 silicon, it features 1,536 CUDA cores, and 2 to 4 GB of memory. Given that it has a lot in common with the GeForce GTX 680, albeit with higher clock speeds, GPU Boost 2.0, its $400 pricing surprised us. The GeForce GTX 770 outperforms AMD's HD 7970 GHz Edition, and is generally priced on-par. The only definitively faster AMD card is the $1100 HD 7990 "Malta," which makes the GTX 770 the king of its segment.

Microsoft Pulls a Fast One with E3 Xbox One Demos

With its focus on on-demand entertainment at the expense of gaming prowess, Xbox One didn't impress gamers at E3, who instead flocked to Amazon to pre-order their PlayStation 4, which not only features faster hardware, that could translate to better visuals in gaming, but is also a whole 20 percent cheaper ($499 vs. $399). At E3, Microsoft tried to pull a fast one. It set up several gaming stations allegedly powered by Xbox One, where gamers could play unreleased Xbox One games using the new Xbox One controller, just to get a feel of how rich and smooth the graphics really are. Some of them fell for it, others didn't. When these peeping toms didn't find the screens wired to an Xbox One main unit, they yanked open the cupboards below, only to find a full-fledged Windows 7 gaming PC.

How full-fledged you ask? Keen observers across the forumscape made out a rig powered by an Intel LGA2011 processor, which could at least be a Core i7-3820, and an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 700 series reference design graphics card, which could at least be a GeForce GTX 770. Such a system would obviously give you a rich and smooth gaming experience.

GIGABYTE Announces GeForce GTX 770 WindForce 3X OC with 4GB

GIGABYTE announced a variant of its GeForce GTX 770 WindForce 3X graphics card with a factory-overclock, and 4 GB of onboard memory. Pictured below, the card combines a non-reference design PCB designed in-house by GIGABYTE, with its new WindForce 3X cooler, which can handle thermal loads of up to 450W. The card ships with clock speeds of 1137 MHz core, 1189 MHz GPU Boost, and 7010 MHz memory; against NVIDIA-reference speeds of 1046 MHz core, 1085 MHz GPU Boost, and 7010 MHz memory.

The card features 4 GB of GDDR5 memory across a 256-bit wide memory interface, which at its given speed, churns out a respectable 224 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The memory is spread across sixteen 2 Gbit memory chips, eight located on the reverse side of the PCB, without a back-plate. The new WindForce 3X cooler uses two aluminum fin stacks to draw heat from the GPU, using six copper heat pipes; which are then ventilated by three 80 mm fans. The cooler works to keep GPU temperatures under 80°C, letting it sustain GPU Boost clocks. GIGABYTE should price the card at $499.99. A lucky few may have bagged it on Newegg for $449.
