The graphics card world experienced a shake-up when NVIDIA announced the Titan X, a 12GB VRAM monster, then did it again just a few weeks after with the launch of the GTX 980Ti. With this, it brought extreme performance to a much more affordable level and at just $600, it was around half the price of the Titan X and a in some tests just 5% slower than the Titan X.
Today on the test bench we have the Palit Super JetStream GTX; the Super JetStream branding is reserved solely for the top end air-cooled Palit graphics cards. Poised at just £539, this is only £10 more expensive than the reference design and boasts figures that only some of the higher priced models can achieve. The card features twin 10cm turbo fan blades with are designed to disperse heat as much as possible and also are translucent to project the built-in LED lighting even further.
We know that the GTX 980Ti is the current top mainstream graphics card and when it’s given to a sub-vendor it only gets better; so let’s find out how it performs in today’s review!
