A Closer Look
Aesthetically the card plays things very safe: there’s an all-black design with a metal shroud encasing the main cooling solution.
Around the back we find a backplate which sports the G1 Gaming logo, the right way up, for it to be seen in your case.
The whole design is open for additional ventilation to allow it to achieve that 600W cooling capacity.
The Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 Gaming has a dual slot design. Along the top we find dual 8 pin power connectors and dual SLI fingers. 4-Way SLI is the maximum supported.
Gigabyte’s fans use a new style of blade which they claim increases airflow by 23% over their previous generation VGA fans.
At the end of the card we can see the ends of five of the 8mm heat pipes.
Display outputs are provided in abundance: dual DVIs, triple DisplayPorts and a single HDMI 2.0.
