KFA2 Readies Three GeForce GTX 960 Graphics Cards

KFA2 is readying as many as three graphics cards based on NVIDIA's upcoming GeForce GTX 960 GPU. The first one is a vanilla NVIDIA reference design board, featuring the same cooling solution found on the GTX 760, and several older cards. This card will stick to reference clock speeds, and will be the cheapest. The next card is the GTX 960 OC, which retains the NVIDIA reference PCB, but tops it off with a factory-overclock, and a custom, compact dual-fan cooling solution.

The third, and topmost variant is the GTX 960 EXOC, which is based on a custom-design PCB that draws power from a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, with a meatier VRM to support even higher factory OC, a bigger dual-fan cooling solution, and a back-plate to cool memory chips on the reverse side of the PCB. The three will launch on the GPU's expected launch date, that's 22nd January, 2015.

A company in Germany filed a copyright complaint on the 'GALAX' branding, so they've had to revert back to being KFA2.

Do you have any more info on that? Was it the same company that filed against the Galaxy branding before?

Sorry I don't, I only found out about it via the Overclocker's UK forum, who are owned by the German retailer Caseking.

..so I don't know any of the specifics, just that it was for legal reasons they had to revert back to 'KFA2'.

So the most expensive one has dumbest video outputs, what kind of idiotic solution is that.

It's kind of raise one question: Is gtx 960 gm204 after all, or is gm206 pin compatible with gk104/gm204 so that you can reuse gtx760/gtx970 pcb:s. I don't really see some one to make custom pcb, which is inferior in anyway than reference.

So the 960Ti will get 3GB memory on a 192 bit interface?

The 960 looks very underwhelming unless the price is a LOT lower than it seems like it's going to wind up being.

So I guess we'll know pricing in about ~8 days.

I can see ~$199 or so but I would prefer less. I've been eyeing some GTX 970 cards in part because I want HDMI 2.0 support but I also want the better card. I think the GTX 960 May make too,....compromised,....


I came across a deal on a 3x combo WD 3TB Red drives and spent ~$299 on it so I kind of want to spend less on the card now.
