Gigabyte GeForce GTX 260 (SP216) SO
Honestly .. seriously honestly I did not expect to review any more GeForce GTX 260 cards after the incredible amount of reviews we already posted on them in the past year or so. But NVIDIA is very late to the market with their upcoming DX11 class products and as such the NVIDIA board and card partners are drastically looking at ways to keep selling and refreshing the current lineup. One of the things that is receiving a lot of attention these days are overclocking, overclock competitions and products based on that theme -- as such Gigabyte technology is releasing their SO series of graphics cards, short for Super Overclocked.
Today we'll test their all new GeForce GTX 260 (SP216) SO -- it comes with an Ultra durable design (long-lasting components) and as the title already suggests .. a pretty nice overclock -- making this product faster than say a GeForce GTX 275.
According to Gigabyte each GPU for this graphics card is cherry-picked for top performance, power efficiency and reliability using something that Gigabyte calls GPU Gantlet Sorting Process. Using advanced technical selection with combined with Ultra Durable VGA boards these boards should be top of the line.
And that is always interesting enough to take a look at. Have a peek at what we are reviewing today please and then head on over to the next page.
We test and review the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 WindForce 3x OC edition. The graphics card comes witha factory overclock and the new WindForce 3X 2 Slot 450W fan sink with Triangle Cool fans, as they like to cool it. That would be three silent 80mm fans. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
