Colorful Releases GeForce GTX 980 Ti iGame Ymir-X Graphics Card

Colorful launched its factory-overclocked GeForce GTX 980 Ti graphics card, the iGame Ymir-X. This custom-design board is positioned between the Ymir-U and the KUDAN, in Colorful's product stack, and offers a reasonably big feature-set. To begin with, the card features a 2-slot thick, triple-fan based air-cooling solution, with twin aluminium fin-stack heatsink, to which heat drawn from the GPU is conducted by six 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes. Its three fans are temperature-activated, and it features a red glowing "Colorful iGame" logo on its top.

Under the hood is a completely custom-design PCB by Colorful, which draws power from a pair of 8-pin PCIe power connectors, and conditions it using a meaty 14-phase VRM, with solid ferrite-core chokes, driver-MOSFETs, and poscap capacitors. The PCB features silver instead of copper for its contact points. Other features include dual-BIOS, and a load-indicating LED array that lights up towards the back of the card. The card offers factory-overclocked speeds of 1127 MHz core, 1216 MHz GPU Boost, and an untouched 7.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. The package includes a multipurpose toolkit. Colorful didn't announce pricing.

Never heard of Zotac, I do know of a brand Zotec that is also owned by PC Partner, same owners as Sapphire. They made Zotec because it was not possible to make Sapphire brand with nVidia GPU.

You must be mistaken. It's Zotac, not Zotec.

For those who aren't too sure about Colorful, they are Nvidia's "Biggest Partner" and #1 VGA retailer and manufacturer on the Chinese market, above the beloved ASUS. As for the name, they're gaming range is actually called "Igame"

Where companies like asus and gigabyte will produce a few models of the same card, with different coolers, Igame focus on less models which allows them to give 100% attention and dedication towards the R&D of every unit they produce. Not only do they produce high end hardware like motherboards and graphics cards, they also produce, laptops, SSD's and tablets, they also have a related company called "Segotep" who manufacture PSU's, Case's and peripherals, these guys really do cover it all.

If all things work out well, you will be able to purchase Igame components from a UK retailer this year.
