Summary: Final Thoughts
Talking about the GeForce GTX 770, NVIDIA has gone ahead and made a better GeForce GTX 680 card that is faster and performs better. Just like any graphics card there are many options out there so why choose MSI’s GTX 770 Twin Frozr Gaming OC Edition card? Well MSI has packed this card with their Military Class 3 components, Twin Frozr IV cooling solution and they give you the option to run the card at three different clock speeds (Silent, Gaming & OC).
Pros: – Price, – Twin Frozr IV Cooler, – 3 different operating modes, – Military Class III components, – Great performance
Cons: – Not the largest factory overclock out there, – Operating modes different from what is listed on MSI’s website
Excerpt: While recently we've chosen to attack the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 700 series MSI Twin Frozr Gaming models with an iron fist via MSI Afterburner to see just what we're able to get out of them, today we'll be taking a little bit of a different approach. First we checked out the MSI GTX 760 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC and found ourselves impressed with what the model could do when we overclocked it.
Excerpt: MSI's Lightning series is simply put one of my most favorite series when it comes to the video card market. MSI have always done a fantastic job with it and I always remember testing cards based under the Lightning series. Of course one of the best things about the Lightning series is that they're based on the highest end GPU options available.
Summary: The new gaming series graphics cards was obviously released to mix and match gaming series motherboards. And admittedly, there's nothing wrong with that. The GTX 770 gaming edition has great looks, is a sturdy build, has nice cooling and sure, offers great performance. Here again the fact remains that the GeForce GTX 770 is a GeForce GTX 680 in disguise, and that, overall, makes this a far less interesting release for many of you.
Excerpt: MSI has hit the GTX 770 scene and it has come out swinging with its GTX 770 gaming model card, which is looking to be not only an awesome performer but even an awesome value for enthusiasts gamers.

Summary: NVIDIA har som bekendt valgt en helt anden strategi end AMD. Hvor AMD satser på lave priser og driveroptimeringer, så satser NVIDIA på styrke. Med GTX770 har de lavet en ny version af GTX680, med enkelte tilføjelser. Bl.a. højere clockhastighed og NVIDIA Boost 2.0. Men det er så også det. Kernen og alt andet, er identisk med GTX680. MSI har dog fået pustet godt med liv i GK104 chippen, og et fabriks OC på over 100 MHz, er ikke noget jeg ser hver dag.
