In a season of continuous launches, one of the most eagerly anticipated events has been the full on drive on Kepler – in all its variations. On 22nd March 2012, an email from nVidia’s boss to all of his employees made its way onto the web. It congratulated them on their achievement. Now, with Computex on the doorstep, we’re about to hear a whole lot more about this new technology. KitGuru was fortunate enough to be invited along to go through the GTX770 with Asus a while back – so we brought HD cameras.
Roll the clock back a decade and Asus was not that big in graphics. Now, in 2013, Asus is number one for both nVidia and AMD across much of the world. How has that growth been made possible? As much as anything, the success of Asus can be put down to engineering.
A while back, KitGuru’s cameras were invited along to see the brand new Asus GTX770 in the flesh and – on hand to take up through the new product’s features, was UK PR & Marketing Manager, Miodrag Relic.[yframe url=’http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1yAjH2rXl8′]
So what about performance?
Well, Asus has an in-house test rig that’s set to deliver maximum performance using the technology that’s available for purchase in May 2013.
Using the same test bed, here’s an Asus GTX 670 up against the Asus GTX 770 in 3D Mark 2011:-
You can then power-up the deepest depths of each card with the Unigine Heaven Benchmark 3 basic test at 1080p (settings below):-
KitGuru says: With its DirectCU cooling system so effective that it’s now used across a range of products from under £100 through to some of the most powerful GPUs on the planet, the initial visual of an Asus GTX770 can fool you into thinking it’s ‘normal’. This new card packs a serious punch and it does so without generating a huge amount of noise or dimming your lights when it turns on. Overall, an impressive addition to the Asus line up.
