Update: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 has also been pictured and that GPU too uses the same cooler from TItan.

NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 770 has been leaked by Chiphell Forums and according to the picture, the card makes use of the same cooler featured on the GeForce GTX Titan.

Yesterday, Fudzilla  revealed some key specifications of the GeForce 700 series cards which are expected to launch by the end of May. The GeForce GTX 770 makes use of a refined version of the GK104 core, codenamed as GK104-425 A2 which although comes with minor improvements over the original GK104-400 core but can be clocked a bit higher. It features a 2 GB GDDR5 memory running across a 256-bit bus and has 1536 cores, the same number as the previous generation flagship GeForce GTX 680. Performance of the GPU is expected to be around 5-10% faster than the GeForce GTX 680 at a cost near the GeForce GTX 670 around $399-$449.

The GeForce GTX 770 would be using the NVTTM cooling design which was used on the GeForce GTX Titan. This cooler as already detailed has a vapor chamber, extended fin cooling and much more enhanced and great looks compared to the stock cooler used on the GeForce GTX 670. The cooler however won't restrict AIBs from using custom coolers on the card and factory overclocked and custom models would also be available at launch. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 is expected to launch on May 30th while the GeForce GTX 780 which makes use of the GK110 core architecture would launch on May 23rd. The GeForce GTX 760 Ti also makes use of the GK104 core architecture with configuration similar to the GeForce GTX 670 and launches during Computex 2013 in June.

With only a month’s time left in GeForce 700 series launch, it would be quiet some time before rival AMD would have something to tackle them since their HD 8000 Sea Islands GPUs are currently planned for launch in Q4 2013.
