Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 WindForce OC Edition GPU Pictured – Clocked At 1189 MHz
Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 770 WindForce has been listed by Chinese retailers, the card uses a custom designed cooler and a non-reference PCB design that delivers better performance.

The GeForce GTX 770 WindForce from Gigabyte comes with a non-reference PCB that uses the GK104-425-A2 cooler that features 1536 Cuda cores, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs along with a 2GB GDDR5 memory that operates along 256-bit interface. From previous reports, we know that the reference models would be clocked at 1046 MHz core and 1085 MHz boost while the memory would be effectively clocked at 7 GHz which would give a good performance boost over the GeForce GTX 680. However, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 770 WindForce OC being a custom model would make use of a factory overclock out-of-box. The GIgabyte WindForce operates at 1137 MHz base and 1189 MHz Boost clock.
Additionally, the GeForce GTX 770 WindForce would make use of the flagship Triangle cooling design which would use three 10cm PWM fans and a large aluminum fin array heatsink equipped with six copper heatpipes which would deliver a maximum cooling performance of upto 450W. Do note that this is the same WindForce heatsink version equipped on the GeForce GTX 780 hence delivering better cooling. The GPU comes with 4-Way SLI support and is powered by an 8-Pin plus 6-Pin connectors compared to dual 6-Pin on the GeForce GTX 680.
Display outputs include Dual DVI, HDMI and a display port. The reference GeForce GTX 770 would cost $399-$449 at launch so we can expect a premium price point for this model. I do want to point out that both 2 GB and 4 GB models of the card would be available at launch.
