Synthetic Game Benchmarks

In the Synthetic Gaming Benchmarks section we will show a number of benchmark comparisons of PNY GeForce GTX 770 XLR8 OC2 and other comparable GPUs, using various benchmarks which come included with five popular modern PC games. This will illustrate how much performance this card has to offer. To ensure that long term performance is and not short term performance is illustrated 15 minutes of Unigine’s Valley benchmark was run to ‘warm up’ the video card. Only then were any tests run on the now warm video card.

Please Note: We will be very surprised if this 770 ever reaches above ‘last place’ as this is the most value orientated card in amongst a group of cards which cost significantly more than it. No, this card is not going to compete against the 780 and Titans of the industry on sheer performance for the simple reason it is not meant to! Rather this card is all about price vs. performance and it is with this radically different metric that we will be judging it performance results.

Sleeping Dogs Gaming Benchmark

Sleeping Dogs is an open world action-adventure video game developed by United Front Games in conjunction with Square Enix London Studios and published by Square Enix, released on August 2012. Sleeping Dogs has a benchmark component to it that mimics game play and an average of four runs was taken.

The settings used in the testing below are the Extreme display settings and a resolution of 2560×1440 and 1920×1080. World density is set to extreme, Vsync disabled, high-res textures are enabled, and shadow resolution, shadow filtering, screen space ambient occlusion, and quality motion blur are all set to high.

SD 1080 - PNY GeForce GTX 770 4GB XLR8 OC2

SD 1440 - PNY GeForce GTX 770 4GB XLR8 OC2

To be perfectly candid we were surprised to see how close the results between this overclocked GeForce GTX 770 and a stock 780 were. This is especially true at 1080P resolutions as the difference is only about 2.5 frames per second on the all-important minimum frames results! That is rather fantastic and just underscores how much extra power PNY have squeezed from the aging GK104. Color us impressed.
