Gainward Phoenix GTX 970 4GB Graphics Card Review

A Closer Look


It’s quite a striking card compared to what Gainward generally produce with the Phantom range. This follows a similar design as the other Phoenix graphics cards with a slashed red and white colour scheme.

I’m surprised Gainward hasn’t installed a backplate considering how many consumers consider this when buying. It would also hide the hideous brown PCB.

LOOK AT HOW MUCH PCB IS SPARE!!! Seriously, the GTX 970 is an extremely compact card, but adding 2-inches after the power connectors just seems completely pointless. At least Gainward thought about access with the power connectors and left cut-outs for fingers to get in.

Something I like about Gainward is the resilience to keep using miniDP. Along with two miniDP, there is 1 HDMI and 1 DVI port.
