Right now, I'm really itching on pulling the trigger on the FTW+ because I will be without a GPU for a few weeks if I wait on the 770. Not sure if I can wait that long without a GPU to be completely honest with you... I definitely know I'd have a better peace of mind with the 770 since it's basically a higher clocked 680 for the same price of a 670... Then there's the issue if I even get one on launch... and the obvious wait. Decisions, decisions...

I'm without a gpu right now, just using iGPU. Works pretty well for just temporary purposes.

It is with the latest Intel drivers for certain games such as Blops2 but it's a no go for titles like Dead island and up.

I'm okay with not playing a game for a week or two, I've had much worse, back when a card had to go RMA and I had no back up.. mad.gif

Wont the increased memory clock result in lower boost clock?

hard to say without one in hand, what makes you think that.?
very possible.

It's about the way boost work; your card will overclock itself until it reach a certain TDP limit, then it will stop. Increasing the stock memory clock  will decrease the headroom that the card have. 

FTW edition have a much higher power target than reference models, which mean that it's still quite standard to see 1200+ mhz on core with around 230gbps of bandwidth, but i'm concerned about the reference 770, which will have a lower TDP.

 

Of course, as you mentioned, it's pretty hard to say without one in hand.

For GTX 770 the TDP has been increased to 230w. 6 + 8 pin power connectors.

My bad. Somehow I though it was only at 200 watt. 
Still the reference board might have a lower TDP than the 670s FTW (which is around 250w?), unless they allow you to increase it straight out of the box.

I'm eager to see what kind of clock speed we are going to see on these 770s. I'm really having a hard time to consider them as an upgrade to the 680/670s.

you are right. because they are not. Nvidia is giving higher memory speeds and higher core clocks which Nvidia GTX 680 owners have been used to getting. for people who have been running the MSI lightings ,evga ftws at 1.3+ ghz core and 7 ghz overclocked memory its a sidegrade. thumb.gif

the true upgrade is the GTX 780 based on the GK110 chip. will have 900+ mhz boost. excellent OC headroom and perf scaling. Titan cooler. 3GB , 384 bit memory bus, 48 ROPs . but USD 700 price. mad.gif
