Product Showcase: GeForce GTX 960
Let's start with our photo-shoot. Two pages worth of photos then and all of them from our own photo-shoot.
So as you can see, this is the GeForce GTX 960 ASUS Strix edition, we have two of these samples. The Strix specifically comes with a faster standard clock frequency opposed to the reference clock frequencies.
The card PCB is 17 cm in length, so we'll see a mITX version soon as well I guess :) With the 2-fan / four heatpipe based cooler included that runs towards 21 cm though. This card has higher factory clocks as mentioned on page one. The core clock frequency for example is set at 1253 MHz, the dynamic boost clock can go up-to 1317 MHz.
This card has 1024 shader processors. The memory has been clock at 7.2 GHz (effective data-rate) on its 128-bit wide memory bus of 2 GB GDDR5 memory. The fan and cooling design is pretty impressive as the cooler will keep the card in the 60~65 Degrees C range under full gaming load. We will check that out later of course.
The card has a maximum power design of roughly 120 Watts, but due to the higher clocks and extensive tweaking please allow for 10, maybe 20 extra Watts, these boards have been designed with overclocking in mind. Its power phases are fed from one power header.
