Introduction



Last month, NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 770 launched with great success. Based on the same GK104 GPU as the GTX 680, we've seen the card provide high-quality gaming at reasonable pricing. The biggest changes are the inclusion of Boost 2.0 and faster memory chips, which certainly helps with performance.



MSI has sent us their GTX 770 Lightning. It bears a striking resemblance to their GTX 680 Lightning we reviewed almost exactly one year ago.

The MSI GTX 770 Lightning comes overclocked out of the box, with the GPU at 1150 MHz and memory at 1753 MHz. The card includes many overclocker-friendly features, like software voltage control, voltage measurement points, a dual BIOS for LN2 support, the MSI GPU Reactor, and a large cooling solution.

MSI's GTX 770 Lightning is available online for $449. That is a $50 increase over the NVIDIA reference design.
