770 and 670 same chipset?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I am researching a new gpu upgrade and a friend is telling me the 770 is the same chipset as the 670... is this true?

770 is basically a 680 with better/higher clocked ram. it it has more cuda cores than 670. So its not really a 670.

I believe the 770 is the same as the 680. The 770 has it's vram clocked at 7ghz tho instead of 6ghz like the 680

I guess. they are both GK104. the 770 is merely a 680 with better memory chips.

Actually, its a bit more than that. The GTX 770 is a GTX 680 core, with better memory chips, and better VRMs. In fact, with the latest MSI Afterburner beta, you can unlock voltages on certain GTX 770s (other than the MSI Lightning and EVGA Classified), because of better VRMs. I believe even the reference design GTX 770s are capable of doing it. Same with the GTX 780/Titan if I'm not mistaken.


However, other than the core, they are actually quite different cards.


But the GTX 770 is DEFINITELY not the GTX 670. Those are two, beyond different, cards.

Gees, love this site for it's quick replies to legit questions. So, taking the 770, 680 and 670 into consideration, which gpu is the best choice? I was 95% sold on the 770 so... good choice?
