GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 970 WINDFORCE3 OVERCLOCKED
As far as high performance graphics cards go the GeForce GTX 970 is one of the best value cards around. NVIDIA has combined its latest Maxwell graphics technology with 4GB of video memory to easily power your HD monitors. The efficient Gigabyte GTX 970 WindForce3 OC can offer excellent gaming performance for an affordable price.
GIGABYTE WINDFORCE3 Cooling System
GIGABYTE understands that the fans are crucial to any graphics card, so only the fans with the most efficiency are selected for WINDFORCE™. WINDFORCE™ 3 cooling system is equipped with high performance pure cooper heat-pipes which direct touch the GPU can strengthen the speed of heat dissipation. The air flow is effectively enhanced by the unique blade fan design, this not only increases the cooling capacity but also reduces the air turbulence resulting in lower noise levels.
Flex Display Technology
The Gigabyte GTX 970 WindForce OC graphics card supports multi-display but also takes advantage of the Flex Display Technology with auto output detection and dual DVI support, in addition to the 3x DisplayPort and 1x HDMI. This patent-pending technology provides gamers with much more flexible output connectivity options compared to those of the reference card. For gamers looking for a multi-display gaming rig using 2 DVI monitors, or enthusiasts going all in for a full 4K surround view using multiple DisplayPort monitors.
Ultra Durable VGA™
Lower GPU Temperature
Provides dramatic cooling effect which lowers both GPU and memory temperatures by doubling the copper inner layer of the PCB.
Better Overclocking Capability
Reduces voltage ripples in normal and transient state, thus effectively lowers noises and ensures higher overclocking capability.
Decrease Power Switching Loss
Allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance. The less circuit impedance, the more stable flow of current and can effectively improve power efficiency.
3x DisplayPort / 1x HDMI 2.0 / 1x DVI-I DL / 1x DVI-D DL
