The NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 760 Reviewed @ Futurelooks
The summer is upon us signaling the end of school for millions of students. And, naturally, many gaming rigs have been ignored or put on hold in search of academic excellence. This means that graphically elite new games that were released within the last year that many have been dying to play, will most likely require a video card upgrade to run. Hopefully, you have some left over cash, or are working part time to put towards this worthy investment. If you’re in search of a new video card that won’t ensure you having to eat Ramen all next year, you’re in luck. NVIDIA has just released their new GEFORCE GTX 760 video card boasting high end performance without the high end price tag.

GTX 760 features clocks speeds and features around the GTX 680 mark, but minus the price tag. With 2GB GDDR5 video memory at decent speeds, a 256-bit bus and 1152 CUDA cores, it’s one GPU that should easily bring on the eye candy without hitting unplayable frame rates in the latest triple A tites. We’ve got some new game titles test and plenty of PhysX to throw at this new card. Let’s see if the $249US NVIDIA GTX 760 is exactly what you need to last you for another couple years of gaming enjoyment.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Review @ HotHardware.com
NVIDIA is launching yet another new member of the GeForce GTX 700 series today, the freshly minted GeForce GTX 760. Like the GeForce GTX 770 which arrived just a few weeks ago, the new GeForce GTX 760 is built around the company's GK104 GPU-the very same chip used last year's GeForce GTX 680 and a few other GTX 600 series cards. The GeForce GTX 760, however, targets a different market segment and is debuting at a much more palatable price point than its predecessors.

We've got a couple of GeForce GTX 760 cards on hand to show you here, a reference model that came straight from NVIDIA and a fully custom, factory overclocked version from EVGA, the GeForce GTX 760 Super Clocked with ACX cooling...

MSI GTX 760 TwinFrozr Gaming 2 GB @ techPowerUp
MSI's GTX 760 TwinFrozr GAMING comes with the same powerful cooler that we've seen on their GTX 770. This means that the card is extremely quiet in both idle and load, yet doesn't run hot at all. The card is also overclocked out of the box.

MSI GeForce GTX 760 Gaming OC 2GB Video Card Review in SLI @ Legit Reviews
The MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC graphics card is powered by the NVIDIA GK104 'Kepler' GPU that has 1152 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 memory on a 256-bit bus. This card comes overclocked up to 1020MHz on the base clock and features the massive MSI Twin Frozr IV GPU cooler. Read on to see what happens when we put two of these cards to the test in SLI on our 2D Surround monitor setup.

Nvidia GTX760 Graphics Card Review @ KitGuru
One of Nvidia's greatest success stories in recent years has been their GTX 660 ti. This discrete solution targeted the high end enthusiast gamer hitting a sweet spot between £200 and £250. Put two GTX660 Tis in SLi and you had a configuration able to battle head to head against the flagship GTX Titan, at half the price. It was not a shock to find out they have been widely adopted by discerning gamers who want the most bang for their buck. Today we look at Nvidia's replacement for this much loved solution, the GTX760.

ZOTAC GTX 760 SLI Review @ Vortez
Our first NVIDIA GTX760 review comes courtesy of ZOTAC. Their interpretation of the NVIDIA reference design is identical however knowing ZOTAC very well, you can be assured there will be overclocked and custom cooled AMP! editions hitting the shelves very soon. For now though, we take a look at what is NVIDIA's reference design and pair this card up with another GTX 760 to see how SLI compares because cards at this level attract the type of person who demands performance yet requires that performance at a reasonable cost.

SLI, you see, is not just for those who have more money than sense. It is now so good at scaling that even the most miserly of gamers can see the benefits of pairing a couple of mid range cards together if one is looking for extreme performance but at a reduced cost. For this the GTX 760 could well be the card of choice. It has a trimmed GK104 core; the same core used on the scorchingly fast GTX 680 and GTX 770 GPUs so we know already that it certainly has the power yet, at just £209 (R.R.P), it has a price that undercuts the competition and by a fair margin.

ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU II OC 2 GB @ techPowerUp
The ASUS GTX 760 DirectCU OC uses the same compact PCB as the DC II Mini, which makes it the smallest GTX 760 reviewed today. Its new DirectCU II cooler keeps temperatures low and noise levels in check. An overclock out of the box is also included, to provide an extra performance boost.

NVIDIA GTX 760 2GB Review @ Hardware Canucks
After NVIDIA’s recent announcements targeting the enthusiast market with the GTX TITAN, GTX 780 and GTX 770, it was only a matter of time until their refresh initiative hit lower prices. The GTX 760 factors into this equation perfectly by providing a graphics card that can play at high resolutions and detail settings while targeting one of the market’s most popular segments.

While the main goal of the GTX 760 is to supplant the well-received GTX 660 Ti in NVIDIA’s lineup, there is also some heady competition sitting within its $250 price point. AMD’s HD 7950 Boost which can be found for as little as $279 is the most obvious threat since it features an excellent price / performance ratio and includes an over-the-top Never Settle game bundle. Those free games (Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Tomb Raider, BioShock Infinite and Crysis 3) present a value added proposition that NVIDIA has yet to match even though AMD’s card is a least $30 more than the GTX 760. They’re also included with the $269 non-Boost HD 7950 but that card is becoming less of a factor in today’s environment since higher clocked versions are available for about the same cost.

Palit GTX 760 JetStream 2 GB @ techPowerUp
Palit's GeForce GTX 760 JetStream comes with a large overclock out of the box, on both GPU and memory. This makes it one of the fastest GTX 760s that we review today. The card also uses a dual fan, triple slot cooler, with just a $5 price premium over the reference design.

NVIDIA GTX 760 Review @ OCC
NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 760 is going to for the most part fill a niche between the HD 7950 and HD 7870 and deliver performance that is slightly better than the GTX 660Ti that it is replacing. You wonder what's the upside if the performance of the GTX 760 is similar to the GTX 660Ti? Cost to the consumer is one thing. Current pricing from Newegg has the GTX 660Ti ranging from as low as $259 after rebates to as high as $315 after rebate. The GTX 760 is going to retail for $249 with today's hard launch with stock available at all your popular e-tailers and brick and mortar stores. NVIDIA's partners will have custom versions available and with the trend over the last few launches the pricing for these cards should prove to be attractive.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB Video Card Review @ Legit Reviews
The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 is powered by the same GK104 'Kepler' GPU that is used in the GeForce GTX 770. It has just 1152 CUDA Cores, but is said to have the horsepower to tackle next generation gaming at 1080p resolutions and for $250. Read on as we put the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 2GB GDDR5 video card to the test!

NVIDIA GTX 760 SLI Review @ Vortez
The recent flurry of graphics cards from NVIDIA have certainly raised some eyebrows. The GTX TITAN, while being somewhat of an exclusive model, reserved for those more affluent of enthusiasts set the benchmark for others to follow. A little later and we get a new family flagship card in the form of the GTX 780 that mirrors previous NVIDIA cards which lead a family of GPUs. Then came it's little brother, re-badged but revved up GTX 680 in the form of the GTX 770. This trio of cards have made life very difficult for AMD who are still clinging to their once fabled HD7970. Today, NVIDIA have adjusted their cross-hairs to the mid-range market and are assaulting this area with the GTX 760.

Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Video Card Review @ Ninjalane
With both a high end and a mid-range GTX 700 series card already striking fear into the competition we knew the mainstream GTX 700 series cars were coming. The question was just where would the latest offerings fit in the big picture. Today we finally get a look at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760. And not just any old GTX 760, we will be looking at the GeForce GTX 760 OC Version from Gigabyte.

The GTX 760 shares the same Kepler GK104 architecture found in both the GTX 770 and carried over from the GTX 680. The GTX 760 ships with 6 SMX units and 1152 CUDA Cores where the GTX 770 had 8 SMX and 1536 CUDA cores. For memory our 760 has 2 GB of GDDR5 memory using the same 6 GB clock rated memory architecture as the GTX 680. Based on the anticipated pricing and tier structure, it's safe to say the GTX 760 has the Radeon HD7950 firmly in the crosshairs.

GeForce GTX 760 Review: Mainstream Performance @ Techspot
Nvidia has continued to roll out the GeForce 700 series this week with the GTX 760 -- the generation's first truly mainstream product, with pricing well under that of the GTX Titan, 780 and even the 770, which at $400 still costs more than the average gamer is willing to spend. In other words, the GTX 760 has the potential to be today's most relevant option for someone who needs a new graphics card.

Previous 700 series cards have been heavy hitters, with the GTX 770 packing about as much muscle as the GTX 680 for about $100 less. Assuming Nvidia doesn't throw us a curve ball, we expect the GTX 760 to deliver performance comparable to that of the HD 7950 with a price tag that's closer to HD 7870s -- a situation that would invariably benefit anyone shopping for a mid-range GPU.

Like the GTX 770, 680, 670 and 660 Ti before it, the GTX 760 is based on Nvidia's GK104 architecture. That said, the newcomer's core configuration has been cut down quite significantly when compared to last month's GTX 770. Before you close the tab, there is some good news: Nvidia has left the card's 256-bit wide memory bus intact, affording the GTX 760 quite a lot of memory bandwidth.

GeForce GTX 760 Review: GK104 Shows Up (And Off) At $250 @ Tom's Hardware
With its last graphics card introduction until the end of Fall, Nvidia isn't trying to impress anyone with groundbreaking performance. Rather, the company is pulling better-than GeForce GTX 660 Ti-class frame rates to a $250 price point, creating value.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Review: The New Enthusiast Kepler @ Anandtech
A little less than a month has transpired since the launch of the GeForce GTX 770, and we're back again with another new NVIDIA card. Launching today at $250 is the GeForce GTX 760, the successor to the GTX 660 Ti and GTX 670, and NVIDIA's new enthusiast class Kpeler card. Designed to go up against the Radeon HD 7950, as we'll see the GTX 760 can both beat it on performance and undercut it on price, making for a very welcome shakeup in the enthusiast market segment.

Strontium Hawk (240GB) Review @ Anandtech
Strontium is probably a new acquaintance for many of our readers, but their story may be familiar. Founded in 2002 in Singapore, Strontium is one of the many memory manufacturers who have turned to SSDs to expand their product portfolio and increase revenues. What makes Strontium special is the fact that they actually buy the whole SSD from a third party and simply rebrand it. In case of the Hawk, Strontium sourced the SSD from Toshiba. Read on to find out how the Hawk performs.

Hands-on review: Toshiba Satellite S50 review @ Techradar
Toshiba seems to be going for the scattergun approach by launching five series of Satellite laptops to meet a variety of needs. It's billing its S series as slimmer devices that offer a choice of Intel's fourth generation Haswell CPU or a quad core AMD processor.

Hands-on review: Sony Xperia Z Ultra @ Techradar
The Sony Xperia Z Ultra is meant to be a phone - but with a 6.44-inch screen it's pushing the boundaries of what a smartphone can really be.It's a huge device, there's no doubt about that, but at 6.5mm thick it sits more comfortably in the hand than you might expect and the full HD screen really impresses too.

Nvidia GTX 760 @ LanOC Reviews
ust this past week I was away on vacation, I came back to a stack of boxes with most of them being video cards. This time, most of them are a new model from Nvidia. Just like with other big launches, the Nvidia GTX 780 was quickly followed up by the GTX 770. To continue filling in gaps in their product line that the GTX 780 launch created Nvidia is launching the GTX 760 that will replace the GTX 660 Ti. Today we are going to take a look at the new GTX 760 and see what it is all about as well as seeing what it is capable in our test suite. The GTX 780 and GTX 770’s were both impressive, I am very curious to see what they will be following them up with.

MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC Twin Frozr Video Card @ Benchmark Reviews
The latest member of the GeForce GTX 700 series lineup to hit the market is the GTX 760. This GPU is built off the GK104 GPU like quite a few GPUs in the GTX 600 and 700 series. The GTX 760 is built to replace the GTX 660Ti and fill an important price position between about $250 and $300. At Benchmark Reviews, we have MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC video card on hand and have tested it with some of the most popular and graphically intensive titles currently available. The MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC takes the stock features of the GTX 760 and adds to them by overclocking the GPU, adding a proven cooling solution, and including a bunch of other extras that you won’t find on the other GTX 760s. So without further ado, let’s get into the details of the MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC video card.

Smart Optimus 400GB Enterprise SSD Review @ Myce
Smart Storage Systems (hereafter referred to as Smart) is a member of the Smart family of global companies. This family is a leading supplier of electronic subsystems for the most demanding OEMs around the world. So, whilst Smart may not be as well know as some of the household names such as Intel and Samsung, they are very well known to the large OEMs, such as IBM having won large scale contracts for the supply of Solid State Storage (‘SSS’) solutions to be used within OEMs’ integrated server solutions.

I find the term OEM a bit confusing, it stands for ‘Original Equipment Manufacturer’, so it sounds to me as if Smart is an OEM but within the computer industry it is the IBMs of this world (the systems integrators that buy specialist parts from other companies, which they then package into an integrated solution for their customers) that are regarded as the OEMs.

Running Ubuntu Linux Is Messy On The 2013 MacBook Air @ Phoronix
Earlier this month, shortly after Intel announced their latest-generation Haswell processors, Apple rolled out their new 2013 MacBook Air laptops. From a hardware perspective, the new MacBook Airs are incredible. The 13-inch MacBook Air can get a 12-hour battery life with Intel Haswell CPU. The 11-inch model continues being an ultra portable computer and has excellent performance with its Core i5 Haswell processor and HD Graphics 5000. As soon as the Haswell MacBook Airs went on sale, I bought an 11-inch model for Linux testing. Ubuntu can be installed and run on the new Apple MacBook Air, but the experience is less than desirable.

Ubuntu 13.10 development daily ISOs were used for installing to the Apple MacBook Air. When booting the LiveCD on the 11-inch model, on some boots from the Live CD the GPU would hang with the hang-check timer elapsing. Other boots, however, worked just fine for the Haswell graphics marketed as HD Graphics 5000 for the Core i5 processor. On a good boot, I proceeded to install Ubuntu 13.10 with the Linux 3.9 kernel to the MacBook Air while still being able to dual-boot into OS X.

Oblanc NC2-4 UFO 5.1 Surround Sound USB Gaming Headset Review @ HiTech Legion
When NVIDIA launched the 700 Series, I must say I was more than pleased to see that EVGA is now perusing the non-reference territory. It has been two years since I have personally reviewed an EVGA video card (not by choice, by time) so when I became aware of the change, I knew I had to make the time to review at least one EVGA product in the 700 Series. EVGA's new ACX cooling is available on all 700 Series GeForce GTX video cards (to date), which includes the newest member the EVGA GeForce GTX 760. Choosing a model with ACX cooling will not increase the price over the reference design. What ACX cooling offers is a 40% increase in heatsink volume, which makes it more efficient than the reference design by lowering GPU temperatures by 15%. EVGA has also added a reinforcement baseplate, which assists in lowering mosfet and memory temperatures. Just to make sure they haven't overlooked anything, the ACX fan blades have increased strength and are 25% lighter than their competitors, making them 20% more efficient by requiring lower power levels.

The EVGA Geforce GTX 760 SC with ACX cooling is priced at $259 USD. The EVGA GTX 760 SC ACX has a base clock of 1072MHz and a boost clock of 1137MHz, there is 2GB of GDDR5 memory and a 4GB version will be available. The GTX 760 Superclocked edition is built on its own PCB, which contains a 6 phase power controller and requires one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCI-e power connector. A minimum of a 500W power supply is needed (system dependent) and the video card's TDP is 180W. For overclocking, EVGA has included Precision X and OC Scanner software. The EVGA GeForce GTX 760 SC with ACX comes standard with a 3 year limited warranty.

Diamond Multimedia WR300NR Wireless Extender and Router @ MEGATech
When you look at the vast majority of routers on the market today, they’re typically about the size of a hardcover book. Some of them might have more bells and whistles than the others, but they serve the same fundamental purpose. What’s interesting about the Diamond Multimedia WR300NR is not only how compact it is, but also how it’s more than a simple wireless router. Indeed, it’s a multifunctional device that can serve four different functions.

The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 Tech Report @ Tech ARP
The new NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 is based on the same GK104 GPU used in the GeForce GTX 680. It has the full complement of 1536 CUDA cores with a 40 MHz (4%) faster base clock and a 27 MHz (2.6%) faster boost clock.

The only significant feature that the GeForce GTX 770 brings to the table is its 7 Gbps GDDR5 graphics memory - the fastest memory clock speed to date! This allows it to deliver a peak memory bandwidth of just over 224 GB/s, or 16.6% more than that of the GeForce GTX 680!

Like the GeForce GTX TITAN and the GeForce GTX 780, it will also support the newer GPU Boost 2.0, which gives you more advanced controls for overclocking, fan control, and hardware monitoring.

OCZ Vertex 450 256GB @ PureOverclock
We’ve said it many times, and we’ll say it again: the hard drive is the biggest bottleneck in modern systems. And for those of you who want to fix that, then a Solid State Drive really needs to be your next hardware purchase. We’ve seen solid improvements in controller technology and the corresponding performance increases have also been accompanied by dropping prices, making these drives far more affordable to consumers who want to experience life in the fast lane on their computer.

One of the companies that has ridden this wave of popularity is OCZ. Not long ago, OCZ acquired Indilinx, with plans to develop their own proprietary controller. First came the “Indilinx-Infused” Everest 1 controller on the OCZ Octane, and it was impressive but not entirely reality-altering. Maybe we’re curmedgeons but we wanted more. Then came the Everest 2 controller which we saw in the Vertex 4. Then we saw the Barefoot 3 controller in the Vector, and today brings the latest chapter in that Indilinx saga, with Barefoot 3 M10 version in an attempt to reach a wider audience.

Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 @ PureOverclock
It hasn’t been long since Nvidia’s last launch; in fact, it’s only been a few scant weeks since we saw the release of the GeForce GTX 770, a graphics card which managed to impress us with its convincing combination of gaming horsepower, innovative features, and strong overclocking. And a week before that we saw the flagship GTX 780. It appears Nvidia is not content to rest on laurels, so today we see the launch of the GeForce GTX 760, rounding out the trifecta in the new Kepler lineup, all within the span of a month.

Looking to capitalize on the attractive mid-range performance gaming market with a price tag of only $249, the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 looks to bring the features of its more powerful siblings at much lower price point. Nvidia is continuing the new GeForce Experience features we saw recently such as ShadowPlay, Adaptive Temperature Control, and an updated GPU Boost 2.0.

Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce @ PureOverclock
Nvidia’s latest Kepler launch is the GeForce GTX 760, and while it’s only been about a month since we’ve also seen the GTX 770 and 780 models launch, it appears Nvidia is keeping on the gas with the latest card. Looking to capitalize on the attractive mid-range performance gaming market with a price tag of only $249, Nvidia is continuing the new GeForce Experience features we saw last week such as ShadowPlay, Adaptive Temperature Control, and an updated GPU Boost 2.0.

While we may be a bit surprised with the speed in which Nvidia moved to release this card so quickly after the GTX 770 only a few weeks ago, we can’t say we’re surprised at what we saw when we got a closer look at this newest card. And the one we’ve got on the bench here is the Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce.
