Gigabyte has just announced their new GeForce GTX 980 WaterForce graphics card, known as the GV-N980WAOC-4GD, if you want to get technical. Gigabyte are known for their premium cooling solutions when it comes to graphics cards and this one is no exception. It features an all-in-one liquid cooler that is going to let the card run harder, longer and cooler, which is always a great thing for a gaming system.
The card boards high-quality components and has gone through “GPU Gauntlet Sorting” so that only the best GPU cores are picked for this lineup, giving you the best chips for overclocking and performance. The AIO cooler and its top cover don’t just sit on the GPU either, and will bring benefits to the VRAM and MOSFET, helping further enhance the performance of the card.
The 120mm silent fan, as well as a low-noise pump mean that the WaterForce will perform up to 38.8% cooler than the reference cooling solution.
Super Overclock – GPU Gauntlet Sorting
The GTX 980 WATERFORCE is fitted with only the top-performing GPU core through the very own GPU Gauntlet Sorting technology that guarantees superior overclocking capabilities in terms of excellent power switching and thermal efficiency. Only the strongest processors survived can be qualified for the GTX 980 WATERFORCE, which can fulfill both gaming enthusiasts’ and overclockers’ expectations with greater overclocking headroom, and higher, stable boost clocks under heavy load.
More Experience-Optimizing Features
GIGABYTE takes multi-display further by utilizing its patented technology to provide dual DVI support in addition to the 3 DisplayPort and 1 HDMI. Compared to the reference, the GTX 980 WATERFORCE offers more flexible output connectivity options. Gamers could optimize their gaming experience at ultra high resolutions with extended flexibility in arranging multiple-monitor configurations and making future system upgrade extremely easy.
You’ll also find an LED Gigabyte logo on the card, a microfiber gaming mouse pad included and support for OC GURU II. No specific details on price right now, but we expect they’ll crop up very shortly.
