GIGABYTE, has recently introduces a powerful new addition to its Super Overclock Series: the GIGABYTE GTX 470 SOC (GV-N470SO-13I) Graphics Card, that it designed specifically for overclocking competition and gaming battle. The GIGABYTE Super Overclock Series includes HD 5870, HD 5770, GTX470, and upcoming GTX460 graphics cards.
The GIGABYTE’s GV-N470SO-13I Super Overclock Edition is built with NVDIA GeForce GTX 470 GPU and is based on 40nm processor and advanced GDDR5 memory technology, the powerful new GPU consists of ground-breaking features including Microsoft DirectX 11 and NVIDIA PhysX which leads to incredibly immersive HD gaming experience and unrivaled performance.
The GIGABYTE GV-N470SO-13I Graphics Card also features WINDFORCE 3X, 14 phase PWM design, OC Guru graphic card smart tuner and voltage read point.
GIGABYTE WINDFORCE is the latest cooling technology that is equipped with WINDFORCE™ 3X cooling solution featuring 3 ultra quiet PWM fans and includes the cooling solution that is equipped with anti-turbulence inclined-fin, ultra quiet PWM fan and pure copper heat pipe. Inclined-fins redirect airflow and help to reduce excessive heat and turbulence. Depending on its orientation, there are 3 types of inclined-fin designs: parallel-inclined, mirroring-inclined and 3D-inclined. Each type contributes to generating excellent exterior airflow for efficient heat dissipation from the interior GPU core.
GIGABYTE’s GV-N470SO-13I Super Overclock Edition is compatible with ATX standard length PCB and features 14 phase PWM design that includes 12 for GPU, 2 for memory. Standard GTX 470 graphics card has five power phases whereas GIGABYTE’s GTX 470 SOC has 12, two times the reference card.
The Super Overclock Series GIGABYTE’s GV-N470SO-13I graphics card includes Ultra Durable VGA+ that features 5+1 quality components delivering top performance in graphics benchmarking .
Unlike other leading brands that only use one proadlizer on their graphic cards, this card users 5 proadlizers (also known as film capacitor) on graphics cards are able to provide 1.6 times purer power supply compared to traditional power design (zero proadlizers).
This results in delivering amazing current capacity of up to 5000uF and extremely low ESL/ESR for super overclocking ability. Five times the regular capacitance indicates the amount of electric energy stored is fivefold.
GIGABYTE’s GV-N470SO-13I Super Overclock Edition also features smart tuner OC Guru, a graphics card tweaking utility, that puts together the best combination of software/hardware overclocking. It now features 3 profiles: OC (for overclocking mode), Gaming (for gaming mode), and Green (for power saving mode).
The different modes cater to users’ different needs. GIGABYTE’s distinctive adjustable software offers gamers to adjust tuners for memory, voltage, and fan speed. OC Guru, the user-friendly software, gives hardcore gamers liberty when overcloking.
Heavy users can change the voltage simply through software instead of manually adjusting any components on PCB and it is easy for overclockers to master the platform and monitor GPU workload at any time just through voltage read point.
