NVIDIA GeForce GTX TITAN X To Feature Tweakable Idle Fan-off Mode

Taking advantage of the low TDP of GeForce GTX 970 and GTX 980, several NVIDIA add-in card (AIC) partners such as ASUS, MSI, and Palit, innovated their VGA cooling solutions to feature idle fan-off. Such a feature lets the card turn its fans completely off, when the GPU is idling, or is below a temperature threshold, making the card completely silent when not gaming. NVIDIA plans to standardize this with its next-generation GeForce GTX TITAN X graphics card.

Given that its TITAN family of super high-end graphics cards never get to be custom-designed by AICs, NVIDIA has decided to standardize an idle fan-off feature of its own. Unlike AICs, who have used specialized fan-controller chips that take auxiliary temperature input to decide when to turn the fan off, NVIDIA's approach will be more driver-based. Future drivers accompanying the GTX TITAN X will offer a new feature, which when enabled, lets you choose between a non-linear fan curve that keeps the fan off; and one that runs it at low speeds. This should let the driver power the fan of a GTX TITAN X completely off, until it reaches a temperature threshold, and only then begin to ramp up speeds. It could help not just idle (desktop), but also light-gaming scenarios (think League of Legends).

Both variations of essentially the same card, the GTX 960 Gaming OC and GTX 960 100ME (100 million edition) cards are based on NVIDIA's new GM206 silicon. The only specs we have at hand are 2 GB of memory across a 128-bit wide memory interface, and a very low power footprint. These two cards feature a 4+1 phase VRM, which draws power from just a single 8-pin PCIe power connector. Reference cards may feature just a single 6-pin. Both cards feature a compacted variant of MSI's TwinFrozr V cooling solution, which debuted with the GeForce GTX 980/GTX 970 Gaming series.
