Gigabyte Announces Three New GeForce GTX 960 Graphics Cards

Gigabyte rolled out three new graphics cards based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960, which look to be graded by fan count. All three are factory-overclocked. The series begins with the GV-N960IXOC-2GD, a compact model, featuring a single-fan heatsink cooling solution, and clock speeds of 1165/1228/7012 MHz (core/boost/memory), against reference speeds of 1127/1178/7012 MHz. This card also features a light display output configuration, with two DVI, and one each of HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 connectors.

Next up, is the GV-N960WF2OC-2GD, featuring a slightly longer PCB, a dual-fan WindForce 2X cooling solution, and a higher factory-overclock of 1216/1279/7012 MHz. This card features a full-spec FlexDisplay configuration, a Gigabyte-exclusive consisting of two DVI, three DisplayPort 1.2, and one HDMI 2.0 connectors. Leading the pack, is the GV-N960G1 GAMING-2GD (GTX 960 G1.Gaming). Featuring the highest clocks on offer, with 1241/1304/7012 MHz, this card features a massive triple-fan WindForce 3X cooling solution, the same one that cools GTX 970 G1.Gaming, which stays silent until a temperature threshold is reached. Also featured here is FlexDisplay.

Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 G1.Gaming Pictured

Here are the first pictures of Gigabyte's GeForce GTX 960 G1.Gaming graphics card. This factory-overclocked card is designed to woo mid-range graphics card buyers with a hefty, high-end looking package. To begin with, Gigabyte deployed its large WindForce 3X cooling solution on this 120W TDP chip, the same one it used on the GTX 970 and GTX 980 G1.Gaming products. This cooler may seem overkill, but Gigabyte may set a temperature-activated fan profile, which keeps the fans off until the GPU hits a temperature threshold, which we imagine will be very high, given this chip's thermals, and the size of this cooler's heatsink.

The GTX 960 G1.Gaming from Gigabyte will also be different from other offerings based on this chip, due to its display I/O. While most other GTX 960 cards will feature two dual-link DVI and one each of HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2, this card features an I/O that looks identical to Gigabyte's GTX 980 G1.Gaming, with two dual-link DVI, three DisplayPort 1.2, and one HDMI 2.0 connectors. NVIDIA will launch the GeForce GTX 960 on the 22nd of January, 2015. Looks like some stores are already stocked-up.

Gigabyte Announces GeForce GTX 980 WaterForce Tri-SLI

Gigabyte announced the GeForce GTX 980 WaterForce Tri-SLI (model: GV-N980X3WA-4GD), arguably the highest pixel-crunching power that ever came out of a single box. This contraption is a trio of GeForce GTX 980 graphics cards, with a factory-fitted liquid cooling loop, which sits outside your case. Each of the three cards features a factory-overclocked GTX 980 chip featuring 1228 MHz core, 1329 MHz GPU Boost, and 7.00 GHz memory; with a liquid-cooling pump-block over the GPU, and a base-plate that conveys heat from the memory and VRM to that block, using heat-pipes.

Coolant tubes from the three cards meet at the external unit, that has an independent 120 x 120 mm radiator for each of the three cards. Fan-speeds and coolant pressure of each of the three loops can be controlled at the unit's front-panel, which features an LCD display with coolant temperature and fan-speed readouts. Also part of the kit, are a custom 3-way SLI bridge, a reinforcement beam that counteracts PCB bending, a 5.25-inch front-panel bezel, from which the coolant tubes make their way out of the case, and to the external unit, and some tubing managment grommets. Gigabyte didn't announce pricing or availability.

GIGABYTE Announces the Release of Raptor FPS Gaming Mouse

GIGABYTE, the world's leading premium hardware brand, announces the release of the Raptor FPS gaming mouse, the champion design from the 2013 GIGABYTE Make It Real Mouse Design Competition. Co-designed by three emerging designers, this award winning piece was highly appraised by all judges and won the opportunity to turn the prototype into a mass-produced product.

Its compact body offers them with the agility to perform with sharp and precision movements quickly during intense in-game shooting. The optimally positioned sniper hotkey also provides a valuable tool in the combat, helping gamers immediately lower the cursor speed while aiming at the target to assure accuracy for every single headshot whilst making a rapid move or a sharp turn.

Gigabyte Outs G1.Gaming Branded H81 Chipset Motherboard

Gigabyte took the concept of H81M-WW a notch higher, and gave it the G1.Gaming branding. So what, if you can't run PCI-Express gen 3.0 graphics cards at their native gen 3.0 bus speeds, the H81 Express chipset must still amount for something? Gigabyte thinks so, and launched a G1.Gaming branded entry-level micro-ATX motherboard based on the chipset, which Intel reserves for "essential computing."

The new H81M-Gaming 3 is mostly identical to the H81M-WW, and the only visual differences we can spot are the second PCI-Express 2.0 x1 slot on the former, instead of the latter's legacy PCI; and the fancier PCH heatsink. The board still gives you onboard audio with audio-grade electrolytic capacitors and ground-layer isolation, even if its centerpiece, the ALC892 CODEC, doesn't have a three-figure SNR. One notable difference here is Gigabyte opting for an Intel-made gigabit Ethernet controller, instead of the cheaper Realtek-made one on the H81M-WW. Gigabyte didn't announce pricing or availability, but something tells us this package could sell well with entry-level gaming PC builders.

Gigabyte Launches GeForce GTX 970 Mini-ITX Graphics Card

A time-traveler from two years ago would see the graphics card below to be a $100-ish mainstream fare, but looks can be extremely deceptive. This puppy packs more bite than a Radeon R9 290X. Gigabyte's latest creation puts a GeForce GTX 970 into a compact board that should play well with mini-ITX builds. The GTX 970 ITX card (model: N970IX-OC) features a full-height PCB that's about as long as a mini-ITX motherboard (17 cm), and a dense WindForce cooling solution that uses a single 100 mm fan to ventilate a dense aluminium fin heatsink, to which heat is fed by two 8 mm thick, and one 5 mm thick copper heat-pipes.

The card draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include one HDMI 2.0, two dual-link DVI, and three DisplayPort 1.2 connectors. It comes with factory-overclocked speeds of 1076 MHz core and 1216 MHz GPU Boost, compared to reference clocks of 1051/1178 MHz. The memory is left untouched at 7.00 GHz. The best part about this card is its price. Gigabyte is charging no premium, pricing it at US $329.99.

Gigabyte Outs Second GeForce GTX 970 WindForce OC Graphics Card

Gigabyte rolled out its second factory-overclocked GeForce GTX 970 graphics card after the GTX 970 G1.Gaming, the GTX 970 WindForce OC (model: GV-N970WF3OC-4GD). Its board design is identical to that of the GTX 970 G1.Gaming, but its factory-overclock is milder. The card ships with factory-overclocked speeds of 1114 MHz core, 1253 MHz GPU Boost, and 7.00 GHz memory, compared to the 1178 MHz core and 1253 MHz GPU Boost of the G1.Gaming, and NVIDIA reference speeds of 1050 MHz core, and 1178 MHz GPU Boost. The card features Gigabyte's new generation WindForce 3X cooling solution, which is capable of handling heavy thermal loads, which may look surplus to requirements for a 170W GPU, but serves to keep temperatures off the hair-trigger 80°C thermal limit. Based on the 28 nm GM204 silicon, the GeForce GTX 970 features 1664 CUDA cores, 104 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 4 GB of memory. Expect this card to be priced around US $350.

New Gigabyte Entry-level Motherboard Designed to Sound Well

Gigabyte launched the H81M-WW, its newest entry-level socket LGA1150 motherboard, in the compact micro-ATX form-factor, and based in Intel H81 Express chipset. Its unique selling point is an unusual onboard audio solution. The board features a Realtek ALC887 HD audio CODEC in the 6-channel configuration. Its 8-channel configuration is possible, if you plug in two channels through the jack wired to the front-panel audio header. The CODEC itself isn't impressive, with its under 90 dBA SNR, but is backed by Nichicon audio-grade electrolytic capacitors, and ground-layer isolation from the rest of the board.

The rest of its feature-set is pretty basic. The H81M-WW draws power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 4-pin CPU power connectors, and features a basic 3-phase CPU VRM. The CPU is wired to a PCI-Express 2.0 x16 slot. Other expansion slots include one each of PCI-Express 2.0 x1 and legacy PCI. Storage connectivity includes two each of SATA 6 Gb/s and SATA 3 Gb/s ports. The only display output is a D-Sub (analog, max resolution 1920 x 1200). The board's other legacy connectivity includes one each of serial (COM) and parallel (LPT). Two USB 3.0 ports, and a gigabit Ethernet connection make for the rest of it.

Gigabyte Announces G1.Sniper B6 Socket LGA1150 Motherboard

Gigabyte announced a new G1.Gaming series socket LGA1150 motherboard for gamers who don't plan on overclocking their CPUs, the G1.Sniper B6. Retaining the classic black+green color scheme, which should go well with reference-design GTX 980 and GTX 970 graphics cards, the G1.Sniper B6 is based on Intel B85 Express chipset, and comes with out of the box support for Core "Haswell" and "Devil's Canyon" CPUs. On the flip-side, while the board features two long PCI-Express x16 slots, only one of the two is gen 3.0 x16, and wired to the CPU. The other is electrical gen 2.0 x4, wired to the PCH, instead. The board hence lacks NVIDIA SLI support.

Drawing power from a combination of 24-pin ATX and 8-pin EPS connectors, the board features an 8-phase CPU VRM. Other expansion slots include two each of PCI-Express 2.0 x1 and legacy PCI. Storage connectivity includes an M.2 10 Gb/s slot, and four SATA 6 Gb/s and two SATA 3 Gb/s ports. Gamer-grade features include AMP UP onboard audio featuring an EMI-shielded 115 dBA SNR CODEC, ground-layer isolation, audio-grade electrolytic capacitors, and a user-replaceable headphones amp; and Intel gigabit Ethernet. Expect this board to be priced under $120.
