GIGABYTE Unveils the GeForce GTX 970 Twin-Turbo

GIGABYTE has revealed its latest graphics card, the GeForce GTX 970 Twin-Turbo (model: GV-N970TTOC-4GD), a custom GTX 970 modified with a lateral blower-type cooling solution that forces hot air out of the card’s case and through the I/O air vents. Though it only has one blower, the “Twin-Turbo” moniker comes from the intakes positioned on either side of the board, which comes thanks to GIGABYTE choosing the short GTX 970 PCB for its modding, and allows air to be sucked in from both sides. The Twin-Turbo design increases air flow by 24% and provides 29% cooler performance than the reference design.

The GTX 970 Twin-Turbo boasts factory-overclocked speeds of 1101MHz core, 1241MHz GPU dynamic Boost, and a plain 7012 MHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. The custom card is also available in a non-OC SKU, which offers the NVIDIA reference clocks of 1076MHz core and 1216MHz Boost.

The card is powered via a single 8-pin PCIe power connector.

Display outputs include three DisplayPort 1.2 ports, one HDMI 2.0, and one dual-link DVI port.

The factory-overclocked GeForce GTX 970 Twin-Turbo is expected to be priced at around $310, with the non-OC version at $300. Retail availability will be announced shortly.
