3 – ASUS GTX 770 DC2 OC Benchmarks

The GTX 770 is based on a refresh version of the GTX 680 GPU. So let’s see what the GTX 770 brings compared to the
GTX 680 and why not, let’s add a GTX 780 in the battle.

For this battle, I used GpuTest 0.5.0, Unigine Heaven 4.0 / Valley 1.0 and 3DMark. All cards have been benchmarked with stock clock speeds and default power/temperature targets.

For all tests, the GTX 680 is the reference card for the scores (100%).

The testbed:
- PSU: Corsair AX 1200
- Motherboard: Gigabyte G1.Sniper M5
- CPU: Core i5 4670K @ 3.4GHz
- Memory: 4GB DDR3 Corsair
- Win8 Pro 64-bit
- Graphics drivers: R326.19

3.13 – Analysis

The GTX 770 DC2 OC is around 10% faster than the GTX 680 reference board. This is essentially caused by higher clock speeds (GPU core and memory) and by a better power management (GPU Boost 2.0): higher TDP and higher voltages. The GTX 770 is a super GTX 680! The GTX 770 is around 20% slower than the GTX 780.
