Late last month, Nvidia launched the GeForce GTX 760 (opens in new tab), a new generation mid-range graphics card available for around £205. We already tested cards from MSI, EVGA and Inno3D (opens in new tab), but ASUS did not have a card for us at the time. By now we've had the opportunity to test an ASUS GeForce GTX 760, and the prices of the others are also available to us. Today we will find out which of Nvidia's partners has done the best job, and who has the most value for money.
The recommended retail price of €240 (£205) that Nvidia mentioned at the introduction of the card, appears to be on the mark, when you look at current street prices. You can find a few below that price point, but those are all standard, non-overclocked models. Overclocked models with custom coolers, such as the cards in this review, are typically €10 or €20 (£8 or £17) more expensive.
In our original review we came to the conclusion that the Nvidia GeForce GTX 760 is a very interesting product. With current prices, it's a better card to get than the AMD Radeon HD 7950 Boost. For Full HD gaming, as long as you don't always need to have maximum settings, the GeForce GTX 760 is an affordably-priced and capable graphics card.
MSI sent us the N760 TF 2GD5/OC card based on the GeForce GTX 760. It's equipped with the latest generation Twin Frozr cooler, which has a black and red colour scheme in line with MSI's new gaming motherboards. The cooler has three 6mm heatpipes and one 8mm one. Two 9cm fans provide airflow over the heatsink. You can read the rest of GeForce GTX 760 round-up: ASUS vs. MSI vs. EVGA vs. Inno 3D on Hardware.info (opens in new tab).
