Gigabyte is reportedly launching a new GTX 760 graphics card with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. It will be paired with the company’s WindForce 450W cooler and uses the same PCB as its Gigabyte GTX 770 sibling.
The upcoming Gigabyte GTX 760 4GB WindForce OC is model number GV-N760OC-4GD. As the name suggests, the card comes with a decent factory overclock on the GPU. The card uses NVIDIA’s GTX 760 GPU with 1,152 CUDA cores, 96 TMUs, and 32 ROPs within 6 SMX units. Gigabyte has overclocked the GPU to 1085 MHz base and 1150 MHz boost. For comparison, the reference GTX 760 is has a base clockspeed of 980 MHz and a boost clockspeed of 1033 MHz. Memory on the Gigabyte GTX 4GB WindForce OC remains the same as the stock design, at 6GHz, there is just more of it at 4GB total versus the stock 2GB of GDDR5.
The factory overclocked card features an eight-phase VRM and the company’s WindForce 3X 450W cooler. The dual slot, triple fan cooler has three 80mm fans cooling two aluminum fin stacks that connect to the copper baseplate via two 8mm and four 6mm heatpipes. It is rated to cool up to 450W TDPs. Because this factory overclocked graphics card is based on the same PCB Gigabyte used for its GTX 770, it requires a single 6-pin and a single 8-pin PCI-E power connector. This setup should provide ample power to push voltage and get higher overclocks, the specific GPU permitting.
There is no pricing or availability information yet, but expect it to be around $270 since its 2GB sibling has an MSRP of $260. Additional photos of the new graphics card can be found over at Tech Power Up.
