GIGABYTE had a large VGA display at Computex this year, the majority of which are made to stand out in the market using non-reference cooling solutions, factory overclocks and more attractive bundles.
One of the real standouts on display, though, would have been a new member of its highly impressive SuperOverclock series video cards that's based on the GTX 470. This is one GTX 470 well worth having and leaves the reference design for dead.
The GTX 470 SuperOverclock (GV-N470SO-13I) has been built using GIGABYTE's proprietory Ultra Durable VGA Plus (UDV+) technology on a modified (longer) PCB with superior VRM (12+2 phase). Further to this, GIGABYTE says it has hand-picked the GPU and memory chips for these particular cards to ensure optimum stability and the highest overclocking potential.
And we can't forget the icing on the cake, a mega beefy cooler with three large fans that have been inclined slightly to reduce turbulance. When you consider what a reference GTX 470 is already capable of when overclocking, it's exciting to imagine just how much farther this beast can go. Unfortunately clock speeds of the model have not yet been mentioned.
