Here are the hardware specifications of our recently updated graphics card test rig:
Here's the list of cards we'll be testing and the drivers used. As we've already established that the GeForce GTX 770 is marginally better than last year's GeForce GTX 680, we've enlisted the GeForce GTX 670 in this comparison for a more price competitive comparison to see how much more horsepower the newcomer can muster:-
For this shootout, we'll be focusing on the overclocking potential, temperature performance, and power consumption of our custom cards (although we'll also have a brief look at out of the box performance). As such, we've streamlined our benchmarks to highlight these features. For a full set of benchmark results for the GTX 770, please refer to our earlier review of the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770.
