In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M.

The GTX 965M has a 113 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 770M. This results in the GTX 965M providing 53.4 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GTX 965M has a 113 MHz higher core clock speed and 40 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 770M. This results in the GTX 965M providing 39.6 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The GTX 965M was released over a year more recently than the GeForce GTX 770M, and so the GTX 965M is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the GeForce GTX 770M.

The GTX 965M has 1024 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 770M, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the GTX 965M also has superior memory performance overall.

The GTX 965M has 63.8 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the GeForce GTX 770M, which means that the memory performance of the GTX 965M is much better than the GeForce GTX 770M.

The GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 770M has 960. However, the actual shader performance of the GTX 965M is 2627 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 770M is 779. The GTX 965M having 1848 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the GTX 965M delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 770M.

The GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI requires 100 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 770M requires 75 Watts. The GTX 965M requires 25 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 770M to run. The difference is not significant enough for the GTX 965M to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the GeForce GTX 770M.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI is a solution of two GeForce GTX 965M 4GB put together using NVIDIA's SLI technology.

Architecture
The Second variant of the Maxwell Architecture, despite being also manufactured with a 28nm technology, has an extremely large L2 Cache and features a Third Generation Delta Color Compression which allows NVIDIA to produce Graphics Cards with relatively small memory data transfer rates, without causing too much impact on the overall performance. Furthermore, the Shaders have been redesigned and are both more powerful and energy efficient.

GPU
It consists of 2 GPUs Codenamed GM204-N16E-GS which, together, offer 2048 Shader Processing Units, 128 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The central unit runs at 924MHz and goes up to 950MHz, in Turbo Mode.

Memory
Each GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1253MHz.

Power Consumption
Power Consumption is around 100W.

Performance
Gaming benchmarks prove that at 2560x1440, the best suited resolution, GeForce GTX 965M 4GB SLI is around 10% faster than a Single GeForce GTX 980M.

System Suggestions
We recommend a High-End Processor and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.
Overview
GeForce GTX 770M is a Performance Mobile Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Kepler Architecture.

Architecture
The Kepler Architecture was NVIDIA's big step to power efficiency. Each Stream Multiprocessor (SMX) now hosts 192 Shader Processing Units - against the 48 of older Fermi Architecture, and has been redesigned being now clocked at the same speed of the Central Unit. This means they are more energy efficient and will consequently lead to cooler operating temperatures. However, it also means they are weaker. It can be said that one Fermi SMX is as fast as 2 Kepler SMXs.
Additionally, and not available in all GPUs, Kepler also introduced the Boost Clock Feature. The Boost Clock is an even higher Clock Speed activated when in gaming mode and becomes the effective speed of the GPU.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Kepler GK106-N14E-GS-A1 which has 5 Stream Multiprocessors activated and thus offers 960 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 24 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 811MHz.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is exaggerated and no way benefits the GPU. The Memory Clock Operates at 1002MHz.

Features
DirectX 11.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for SLI, Kepler Boost, Optimus, CUDA, OpenCL, DirectCompute, 3D Vision Surround, PhysX, Realtime Raytracing and other technologies

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it is suited for large laptops.

Performance
GeForce GTX 770M is essentially a fast GeForce GTX 675MX.
Gaming benchmarks indicate its performance is slightly better than the older GeForce GTX 675MX.

System Suggestions
We recommend a Powerful Processor (Intel Core i7 Mobile) and 8GB of RAM for a system with GeForce GTX 770M.
