MSI GeForce GTX 760 Packaging Mistakenly Pictured

By - Source: VideoCardz.com | B 15 comments

Oops, it appears that someone had forgotten to check the model numbers of the boxes retrieved from their shelves, and accidentally included the packaging of the GTX 760 with a roundup of GTX 780 cards.

While little is known about the GTX 760 currently, it appears that someone from PC Games Hardware has mistakenly taken a picture of the packaging of the GTX 760 card and published it. The reason we say that it was accidental is because it was included in a roundup of three GTX 780 cards, and it seems that someone may have accidentally swapped the MSI GTX 780 packaging for that of MSI's GTX 760. From the packaging, we can see that the card will carry the TwinFrozr cooler, and will be themed as part of the Gaming series of PC components, meaning that it will be black and red. The box also indicates that the card will be factory overclocked.

An earlier report did shed some light onto the GTX 760's specifications, though their likeliness remains questionable. According to these specifications, the GTX 760 would not be very different from the GTX 660 Ti, featuring higher clock speeds and a wide memory interface. More details here.

Reports indicate that the GTX 760 is expected to launch this week still with an MSRP of $299.

    I love these "rumor" posts in the news section where the writers fake speculate about "unknown" specs of not officially confirmed upcoming products. Why don't you guys walk up the hallway to see 10 of these imaginary cards you know nothing about (wink wink), getting run through a battery of tests for a review that will probably be posted on this website in a few days?

    Hm, so GTX 660 Ti = $299. GTX 760 = $299 and same performance. Am I missing something here, or is this the most pointless product ever?

    I was under the impression that the GTX 760 Ti was to launch at the MSRP of $299. It wouldn't make any sense to rebrand the GTX 660 Ti and launch it at $299 since the 660 Tis are already available for around $250-275 quite regularly.

    Dear EVGA, your boxes suck. Nobody wants your posters or badges anyway so at least use your money to make the boxes look good.
