GIGABYTE released a new super-compact dual-fan WindForce 2X VGA cooling solution, and launched a pair of GeForce GTX 960 graphics cards featuring it. The cooler allows the card to have a length of just 18.1 cm. These include the 4 GB N960OC-4GD and the 2 GB N960OC-2GD. Both cards come with factory-overclocked speeds of 1190 MHz core, and 1253 MHz GPU Boost (against reference clocks of 1127/1178 MHz), with 7.00 GHz memory. The cooling solution consists of a single 8 mm-thick copper heat pipe, which passes through the center of the heatsink base, projecting out in an "S" shape, and passing through two ends of an aluminium fin stack. It's ventilated by a pair of fans. The card draws power from a single 6-pin PCIe power connector. Display outputs include two dual-link DVI, and one each of HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2.
