Gigabyte Launches GTX 980 WaterForce 3-Way SLI Set

On the decline of 2014 Gigabyte decided to gladden its North American customers with a unique solution – the GeForce GTX 980 WaterForce 3-Way SLI. This is an extreme set of three factory overclocked graphics cards (1228 MHz/1329 MHz clock frequencies) combined with a powerful liquid-cooling system. Each GPU features 4 GB of GDDR5 memory, providing for the best visual experience. Enthusiasts might already acquire this extraordinary kit for the price tag of $2999.99.

The enclosed liquid-cooler is housed in a massive case that is installed over the system case. It consists of three heatsinks combined with pumps, and three 120 mm fans. In order to enable the system, the user needs to involve a single bay for 5.25-inch drives. On their part, the GPUs are equipped with independent full-cover water pumps; the latter are able to cool not only GPUs but VRAM circuitry as well.

To continue, this liquid cooler boasts the availability of OLED display. It designates temperature of GPU …

Gigabyte Debuts with Mini-ITX Motherboard C1007UN-D

Gigabyte has officially introduced a new motherboard model C1007UN-D, developed in mini-ITX form-factor. As seen from the dimensions, the novice is intended to be employed within small-sized multimedia or industrial systems. Chipset Intel NM70 with the integrated two-core ULV processor Intel Celeron 1007U are considered to be the heart of the board. The CPU is cooled down by a compact active cooling system which involves an aluminum heatsink and a small fan.

Video subsystem is represented by an integrated graphics core that belongs to Intel HD Graphics series. The core runs at the nominal 350 MHz clock frequency, however this index might be dynamically increased up to 1000 MHz. Audio subsystem is realized by means of Realtek ALC887 controller that supports 7.1-channel sounding. Network facilities (LAN) are ensured due to a pair of gigabit controllers elaborated by Realtek.

To continue, memory subsystem consists of two DIMM slots which support up to 8 GB modules of DDR3-1333 …

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 …
