You could instantly mistake it for one of the other GTX 700 Twin Frozr Gaming series video cards we've looked at recently. We've got a big Twin Frozr IV cooler sitting on top with two fans pushing air onto a massive heat sink that covers almost the entire PCB. You can see we've got heat pipes coming out both the top and bottom and the overall color scheme is black and red, one we've seen on all the new Gaming Series products.
MSI has opted for a dual 8-pin PCIe power connector setup instead of the standard 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connector setup. Staying across the top and heading closer to the front, you can see two SLI connectors, giving us the ability to run up to three of these cards in SLI.
Connectivity options are very standard with two Dual-Link DVI ports. One is DVI-D, while the other is DVI-I. Along with those, you can also see a HDMI and DisplayPort, along with some venting to let the hot air escape out the back of your case.
Out of the box, a reference clocked GTX 770 comes in with a 1046MHz core, which is then boosted up to 1085MHz. As for the 2GB of GDDR5 memory, that carries a default clock of 7012MHz QDR.
Looking above you can see that MSI has given a slight boost on the core to 1059MHz. While not a big gap between the reference clocks, the boost clock of 1111MHz is stronger looking against the reference 1085MHz.
As for the 2GB of GDDR5, like most companies, MSI chose not to touch it and hence comes in at the default 7012MHz QDR.
