Gigabyte displayed its high-end non-reference GeForce GTX 470 based graphics card, the GTX 470 SuperOverclock (GV-N470SO-13I). The card is built using Gigabyte's Ultra Durable VGA Plus (UDV+) technology, and makes use of a 12+2 phase VRM, because of which the PCB is about as long as a GTX 480. The GPU and memory chips used are said to be hand-picked (by binning), to have the highest overclocking potential. The GPU cooler used is no less complex, making use of a large aluminum fin array that's cooled by three fans that's are slightly inclined to reduce turbulence. There is no word on the clock-speeds, though being an SOC model it will likely be on the higher side.
