Palit Announces an Overclocked GTX 760 JetStream Graphics Card

Palit has replenished its line of gaming graphics adapters with a new model, codenamed Palit GeForce GTX 760 JetStream. It is differentiated by an original design of the PCB, a highly-efficient JetStream cooling system, and a factory overclocking. Outstanding overclocking potential is secured by the implementation of high-quality components, such as DrMOS MOSFET transistors.

The new-comer employs PCI Express 3.0 x16 interface and is based on GK104 GPU (28 nm Kepler microarchitecture). The core consists of 1152 stream processors, 32 ROPs and 96 TMUs. It runs at an overclocked frequency of 1072 MHz, but on activating GPU Boost technology, this index rises to 1137 MHz high. Such showings exceed the reference parameters at about 10%.

To continue, this graphics card is equipped with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory type that runs also at heightened frequencies. Hence, the nominal clock frequency makes up 1550 MHz, while GPU Boost increases this index to 6200 MHz. Memory subsystem employs …
