The Card

If you've seen any of the higher-end JetStream offerings from Palit in the past, the triple fan heatsink design wouldn't be new to you. You can see we've got a large fan in the center that goes over the top of the GPU, while two smaller fans are found at each end to help keep everything as cool as possible. If you look carefully you can see the massive heatsink behind the fans and some copper heat pipes.

Taking a look across the top you can see we've got a single 8-pin PCIe and 6-pin PCIe power connector at the back. Closer to the front you can see the standard dual SLI connector setup, which allows up to three GTX 770s to run in SLI.

Moving to the front you can see we've got the typical I/O setup with two Dual-Link DVI connectors in the form of a DVI-D and DVI-I. You can see we've also got a HDMI and DisplayPort connector, along with a vent to let some of the hot air escape out the back of the card and your case.

 

 

Specifications

 

Out of the box a reference GTX 770 carries a core clock of 1046MHz, which is boosted up to 1085MHz. As for the 2GB of GDDR5, that comes in at 7012MHz QDR. The JetStream version of the GTX 770 from Palit comes overclocked out of the box. While like most companies they've chosen to leave the memory clock alone, they have bumped the core clock to 1150MHz, which has pushed the boosted clock up to 1202MHz.

As we mentioned earlier, our plan was to overclock the GTX 770 JetStream today. Looking above you can see we pushed the core a little higher to 1180MHz, which pushed the boost clock up to 1232MHz.

 

As for the 2GB of GDDR5 memory, that's now running at a solid 7600MHz QDR.
