ELSA Launches GeForce GTX 770 Hybrid Graphics Card

By - Source: Guru3D | B 17 comments

ELSA has announced its GTX 770 Hybrid, which features an Arctic Accelero Hybrid cooler.

ELSA, a manufacturer of graphics cards, has introduced its GTX 770 Hybrid graphics card. This graphics card is simply a GTX 770 with an Accelero Hybrid cooler slapped onto it. The graphics card itself is overclocked, and like many custom cards, it has a premium price tag to go with it.

The GPU on the GTX 770 Hybrid is overclocked to a frequency of 1163 MHz with a 1202 MHz boost clock. The card packs a noteworthy 4 GB of GDDR5 memory, which runs at a speed of 7.28 GHz over a 256-bit wide memory interface.

The Accelero Hybrid cooler cools the graphics card with both air and liquid cooling. It features a single 120 mm water cooling radiator, as well as an 80 mm fan on the cooling shroud itself. It is capable of cooling up to 320 watts, though we'd be proud of you if you manage to get the card to need such cooling power. Of course, such a powerful cooler can also run at much lower speeds to be quieter. As such, the card, at factory clock speeds, should not make more than 25 dBA of noise.

ELSA's GTX 770 Hybrid should already be shipping and carries a price tag of about $700.

    $700? How about "no".

    For $700, you can get the fastest single gpu card on the planet, the Galaxy GeForce GTX 780 HOF Edition:

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DZIFN4M/

    When overclocked, it will match (and sometimes beat) the performance of a GTX 690 or Radeon HD 7990, but without any of the problems associated with dual-GPU setups. I cannot stress this enough: Single GPU >>> multi-GPU.

    Before you ask, the answer is: No, you cannot take any regular GTX 780 and overclock it to the same levels as the HOF edition card, since the chip used in the HOF card was especially binned for higher overclocks and the card itself is heavily modified to handle much higher voltages and heat without degradation.

    For that price you can get a great GTX 770 and the cooler put it on your self and still save money. I did it with both of my GTX 670's since there was no full water blocks that are made for my cards.

    $700? For a 770? Not just no but HELL NO! I think they have the price mixed up w/the model number.

    Jeez. I hope the cooler's price becomes justified. Why don't you tell that to us, Tom's?

    My ASUS 770 clocks itself to 1306 MHz

    the cooler is only $125 at microcenter lol. I am kicking around the idea of getting one for my 7870 LE, they do perform quite well and will keep WAY quieter and cooler than my single 80mm fan now. BAD POWERCOLER !! single 80 on a high end GPU, just silly,

    merikafyeah,

    The HOF does not boost as high as some of the other 780s. Also, unlike the Asus DCUII, it ships with Elpida memory. As for binned, I'm not so sure they are. I've done extensive research on both the Asus and the Galaxy because I'm still trying to decide which one to go with. From what I've seen in numerous reviews, the Asus actually clocks really high with ease. But to give your argument a little credit, the Asus does only come with one 6 pin and one 8 pin instead of the Galaxy's two 8 pins for power. If I could find proof that they are cherry picking the chips for the Galaxy, then I'd buy it even with its Elpida memory.

    Did you guys forget to mention The EVGA 780 Classified.. As far as I know, it's the best overclocker in all GPUs.

    The thing about hybrid coolers is that they are jacks of all trades and masters of none.

    Is it Asetek-based like the NZXT cooler adapter?

    It's overpriced, but damn, I love the look. Looks NZXT-ish.
