Gainward Intros GeForce GTX 470 Golden Sample

Gainward released a new custom-design GeForce GTX 470 graphics card, which is based on the Gainward GTX 470 GOOD Edition that was launched a month ago, replicated as Palit GTX 470 Dual-Fan. The factory-overclocked model is designated with the Golden Sample (GS) identifier. It packs clock speeds of 650/1301/850(3400) MHz (core/shader/memory), against reference speeds of 607/1215/837(3348) MHz.

As with the GOOD Edition design, it features a slightly longer PCB at 10.5 inches, custom dual-fan GPU cooler, and display outputs which include two DVI-D, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort (though only two displays can be connected at a time). The DirectX 11 compliant GeForce GTX 470 packs 448 CUDA cores, and 1280 MB of GDDR5 memory across a 320-bit wide memory interface. It is expected to be priced at a slight premium of the GOOD Edition.

No, no its not. This card probably runs cooler than any stock 470 and quieter.

The name sounds like an insult to nvidia LOL. "Your design sucks so bad we had to make a GOOD one."

Finally some more innovation, I remember when the first 4870 came out it ran pretty hot, I wonder how many people bashed ATI? At least some companies are innovating on Nvidia's fail reference cooler.

Not entirely sure why you guys are laughing. Gainward's Golden Sample cards have usually been terrific overclockers. It's a shame they're so hard to find them here in the 'states.

Sigh* Die hards.... rolls eyes*

I agree Gainwald cards are usually solid overclockers, I want to see some reviews in SLI with these.

I think it's about Gainward's use of mystical terminology.
