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.

Anyone know what the reference design Phase VRM is?

This card is a very nice non-reference design.

How big is this thing? Maybe it's an optical illusion or something but it definitely looks a lot bigger than the reference 470 with its one tiny fan.

Oh yea, and noob question, what's phase vrm and how does the bigger numbers make it better for overclocking (Like 12+2 vs 4+1)? Seems like the reference 470s overclock fine.

This card is a very nice non-reference design.

4+1 phase iron-core choke, controlled by ON Semi controller which gives limited voltage control. This is Gigabyte's board:

i know we don't know the specs yet but seriously....all the retail oc'd cards recently have been PISS POOR!!! G92, RV770, and GT200 all had way better overclocks on the XFX XXX, PC PCS+++, . Now its like no core overclock, 25mhz memory oc, or 25mhz core overclock. We used to get like 80mhz-110mhz overclocks on cores from manufacturers, 75-150 overclocks on memory. now its just pathetic. on fermi i can sorta understand, but on HD 5XXX series come the fuck on. just my opinion. :)

Well, of course! Because an OC GTX470 will consume more power than the CPU/mainboard it is paired with.

Personally, I dont like the idea of ubersuperoverclocking an already power hungry GPU. We all know that OC'ing improves performance but at the same time performance/watt gets worse; it uses ever more power to get the extra stretch.

I might actually prefer a leanunderclocked GTLV 470, operating at extra low volts and being more power efficient.:pimp:

I guess I'm confused by the numbering system; 4+1 vs 12+2 What do each correlate too?

hey that rhymes :laugh:

12 vGPU and 2 vMem. There are independent circuits to power the GPU and memory.

Yeah but that didn't rhyme!


Kidding, I'll do some research and learn some more.

Because "e-peen" does not contain the word "Super!" or "Overclock!"

Lol, I was thinking the exact same thing. Next think you know it would be something even cooler like Supabigmommaoverclock!
