Gainward are one of my favourite graphics card manufacturers; although that’s mostly because I love the design of their Phantom coolers. If you’re also a fan of the Phantom cooling solution, then you’ll be pleased to hear that it’s made its way to the GeForce GTX 970 series of cards.
Gainward have three new cards in their 9xx line-up; the first is a stock GTX 970 which clocks in at 1051 MHz, with a boost clock of 1178MHz . The second is the GTX 970 Phantom, which comes with a factory overclock of 1152MHz and an incredible boost speed of 1304MHz. Finally we have the GTX 980 which runs at 1127MHz and 1216 MHz boost. All three cards feature 4GB of GDDR5 and a 256-bit interface.
All of the new cards feature two 6 pin power connectors and prices are expected to range from 400 EUR for the GTX 970 up to 600 EUR for the GTX 980.
