Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition is a very low performing piece of gaming hardware and can probably only run indie system requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 12.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 248.

The GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition graphics card is returning a weak performance on Battlefield 2042 at 1080p of 0 frames per second at Ultra graphics settings. Another popular title that is good to benchmark graphics cards against is Back 4 Blood which we saw got playable frame rates of 35 FPS. A third game we can look at on Ultra at 1080p is the popular Far Cry 6, which was getting 0 FPS under tests.

Next up we increase screen res tests to accommodate the growing in popularity 1440p screen size. So we booted up Battlefield 2042 to see how the GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition dealt with it. It scored up a weak series of FPS results across these graphics presets - Low: 0 FPS, Medium: 0 FPS, High: 0 FPS and Ultra: 0 FPS. Next we looked at Back 4 Blood which was playable with a 27 FPS at Ultra 1440p. And finally looked at Far Cry 6 that got an Ultra 1440p FPS of 0. Running games at 1440p with a GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition is going to underperform if you try and run modern games.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 46% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 616 games from the most demanding games today. Alternatively if you want an upgrade suggestion for the GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition then a good choice would be RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5300 as this is better than 309 of the top 1000 most demanding game requirements with 21% better performance as well.

GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

GeForce GTX 770 DirectCU II 4GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end GeForce GTX 770.
This edition comes with a custom cooling solution, 20% cooler and 3X quieter, which by itself should allow a slight performance boost, as GeForce GTX 770 benefits from the GPU Boost 2.0 technology.
Also, it has been overclocked out of the box from 1046MHz to 1058MHz while its boost clock is now of 1110MHz. The memory clock was left untouched.
Furthermore, the frame buffer was doubled to 4GB though this will not boost its performance and can be addressed as a gimmick - marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.
Benchmarks indicate a 4% performance boost when compared to the reference card and so this edition performs very slightly better than GeForce GTX 590.
