Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 WindForce 2X Gaming is developed on Nvidia GM206 GPU (Nvidia Maxwell architecture) that can operate in two modes, presumed by OC Guru II software package. The first mode, Gaming, offers etalon 1127 MHz/1178 MHz clock frequency, while the second one, OC, is distinguished by increased frequencies: 1152 MHz/1203 MHz (nominal/dynamic). In its turn, video memory runs at 1752 MHz (nominal) and 7010 MHz (effective) frequency.

Along with improvements in memory subsystem, this graphics adapter …
