Introduction

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.

The Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce is the latest in the company’s popular model series, and this model now comes with an updated version of its namesake cooler. We’ve been impressed in the past with Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. At a price of only $259, it’s just $10 more than the reference design, but comes with an aggressive overclock and what we expect will be an impressive cooler.

In terms of competition, the GTX 760 is positioned against AMD’s Radeon 7950, and we have high expectations of today’s launch, since we’ve seen the 780 and 770 crush the competition. Can the GeForce GTX 760 continue the winning trend?

Let’s take a closer look at the Gigabyte GTX 760 OC Windforce and find out.
