Gigabyte Shows Off a Bespoke GTX 970 Graphics Card

Gigabyte has intrigued its fans by the design of an unusual videocard – the GeForce GTX 970 (GV-N970TTOC-4GD). It is based on Nvidia GM-204-200-A1 GPU (Maxwell) but with overclocked frequencies. The core operates at 1101 MHz/1241 MHz instead of etalon 1050 MHz/1178 MHz. The GPU is accompanied with 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit bus) that runs at 7010 MHz efficient clock frequency.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 is distinguished by the implementation of Twin Turbo Fan cooling system. It consists of three copper heatpipes with direct touch technology, an aluminum heatsink, and a radial-flow fan; the latter grasps air from both sides of the adapter due to the shortened PCB design.

As a result, the airflow increases by 24%, whereas the cooling effect enhances by 29%. Thanks to this, the card is thought to be an optimal solution for Nvidia SLI configurations.

It should be noted that this graphics card boasts a high-quality hardware base – Ultra Durable VGA. A set of external …

Motherboard Gigabyte Z77MX-D3H TH Review

Each new year brings new ideas for the developers of PC hardware. Since motherboards are indisputably the main component in the PC integration, their design and facilities are given the most attention. Hence, each manufacturer tries to implement some unprecedented technologies to attract potential audience by an improved performance and possibilities. Intel Thunderbolt technology is a hit of 2012; that is why, motherboard designers turned their looks into this direction. Gigabyte was among the first companies to integrate Thunderbolt interface into its products: model Z77MX-D3H TH is a bright evidence of it.


Motherboard Gigabyte Z77MX-D3H TH resembles the modification of its predecessor Z77MX-D3H, except for the availability of Thunderbolt interface and design of PCB. The renunciation of the third PCIe x16 slot allowed the manufacturer to free four lines of PCIe bus and employ Thunderbolt technology for their activation. As a result, a new product has got a …

Greeting Top-Notch Exoc Sniper Videocard from KFA2

KFA2 ventured upon introducing another cutting-edge videocard developed on Nvidia GTX 970 adapter. The GeForce GTX 970 Black Exoc Sniper features 271x124 mm and takes GM204-200 GPU (Maxwell) as the basis. Similar to the etalon model, the new-comer accommodates 4 GB of GDDR5 memory (256-bit interface), running at 7010 MHz frequency and offering 224 Gb/sec bandwidth index.

As distinct from the Nvidia’s elaboration, KFA GeForce GTX 970 Black Exoc Sniper boasts the integration of the factory-overclocked GPU. It operates at 1178/1329 MHz frequency (base/efficient), surpassing etalon 1051/1178 MHz showings. In order to cope with high power consumption and heat output, KFA2 has imbedded high-quality 5+2-phase power subsystem.

To continue, the model is ventilated by a two-slot Silence Extreme cooler. It consists of four nickel-plated copper heatpipes, aluminum heatsink, a rear backplate as well as a couple of 90-mm fans. On low loading, the system disables one of the fans to …
