Tomorrow, NVIDIA would introduce to us their latest mid-range and most probably the last GeForce 700 series card we will see in a while, the GeForce GTX 760. The GeForce GTX 760 is aimed towards users who want great gaming performance without putting much stress on their wallets.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Non-Reference Models Unveiled

The reference GeForce GTX 760 graphics card would feature a GK104-225-A2 Kepler core architecture that would boast 1152 cores, 96 TMUs, 32 ROPs along with a 2 GB GDDR5 memory interface running along a 256-bit wide memory interface. Manufacturer’s are free to release 4 GB models as they wish at an extra price. The GPU runs at a base clock of 980 MHz while boosts upto 1033 MHz which are faster speeds than as seen on the GeForce GTX 670. The memory on some of the overclocked variants is clocked at 7 GHz while reference still operate at the reference 6 GHz effective clock speeds, the GPU pumps out a bandwidth of 192 GB/s at 6 GHz and overclocked models at 224.4 GB/s at 7 GHz effective clock speeds.

The stock cooling solution used on the card is of the same iteration that is seen on GeForce GTX 680/670/660 reference models. The GPU can be equipped on any one of the GTX 680 or GTX 670 PCBs hence we would be looking at alot more custom edition cards. It makes use of a large aluminum fin heatsink array sitting on top the GPU block that is cooled off by a blower type fan. Display outputs include Dual-DVI, HDMI and a display port.The card is expected to hit retail in about a week or so for a price range of $249-$299 for reference and overclocked variants.

The cards we are looking at today are from various manufacturer’s including ASUS and ZOTAC which were found out by Videocardz along with custom models from Galaxy, Gigabyte, Inno3D, Colorful and MSI. That’s almost the entire launch stack of cards we would be looking at. Take a look below to see which custom / reference cards would suit your need.

which are similar speeds as seen on other non-reference models. The memory on some of the overclocked variants is clocked at 7 GHz while others still operate at the reference 6 GHz effective clock speeds, the GPU pumps out a bandwidth of 192 GB/s at 6 GHz and 224.4 GB/s at 7 GHz effective clock speeds.

The Twin Frozr IV cooling solution used on the card is of the same iteration that is seen on GeForce GTX 780 and GTX 770 Lightning models. It makes use of a large aluminum fin array and heatsink array sitting on top the GPU block that is cooled off by two large propeller blade fans. Display outputs include Dual-DVI, HDMI and a display port. The non-reference PCB would allow for a much powerful PWM supply over the reference cards allowing better overclocking. The card is expected to hit retail in about a week or so for $299.

ASUS GeForce GTX 760 DirectCU II OC

The ASUS GeForce GTX 760 makes use of the company’s latest iteration of the DirectCU II cooler which was recently seen of the GeForce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC model. The card makes use of a custom designed short board which is cooled off by the dual fan and four heatpipe equipped heatsink design.

The card is a factory overclocked variant with speeds of 1006 MHz base and 1072 MHz boost while the 2 GB GDDR5 memory operates at the standard 6008 MHz frequency.

Colorful GeForce GTX 760 OC

Colorful also has a custom GeForce GTX 760 variant which comes with a factory overclock and a PCB off the GeForce GTX 680 that allows for better overclocking. The card operates at 993 MHz base and 1058 MHz boost clock while the memory operates at 6 GBps effective clock speed.

Galaxy GeForce GTX 760 GC

The Galaxy GeForce GTX 760 GC model comes with a custom dual fan cooler with a large aluminum fin array heatsink. It comes with few missing memory chips which may point out to 3 GB models in the future after the card has been released. The card is powered by dual 6-Pin connectors which shows that it is an overclocked model while display outputs include the reference Dual link DVI, HDMI and a display port.

The card operates at 1058 MHz base and 1116 MHz boost clock while the memory is clocked at the reference 6 GHz effective clock speed. The cooler would allow for better temps under full load and overclocks.
