Gigabyte's Super Overclock GTX 470 Unveiled

By - Source: Tom's Hardware UK | B 5 comments

We just landed at Gigabyte's headquarters early in the morning and got a sneak peek at a special graphics product.

From what we can tell, it's an Nvidia GeForce GTX 470, but it's been considerably beefed up. We're still working on the details, but this one is going to be of the "Super Overclocked" variety.

It's also sporting what we were told a total of 12 power phases, which should help overclockers sustain stable overclocks at higher frequencies. The silicon of the GTX 470, however, will be unchanged, so expect the same 448 CUDA cores and 1280 MB of RAM – but those clocks will be at a higher level.

Stay tuned as we'll have a lot more on this upcoming product soon!

    I absolutely loved my 9800 GX2! One of the best cards I've owned.

    P.s. When are you going to update us? Hasn't MS now passed Apple?

    The only thing being unveiled here is that super overclocked (versus non-super or regular overclocked) is just super market hype. They'll want to charge a 20% premium for a 5% performance gain!

    And a nuclear power plant to power it.
