The Packaging

 

The box that the Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' comes in is something that surprised me, as it's actually kinda cool.

We have a tall, but not wide box, that has a huge 'G' on the front of it. Gainward teases that this is a Golden Sample and that it is 'Born to Kill'.

On the back, we get a detailed rundown of the features of NVIDIA's flagship gaming GPU, the GeForce GTX 980 Ti.

Inside of the box, we have another box that the card itself is housed in, keeping it nice and safe.

 

 

Detailed Look

The card itself has to be one of the most uniquely themed cards we've seen, with an off pink/peach colored cooler with three clear fans. The two large heat sink and heat pipe arrays can be easily seen through the fans, which I actually think looks great.

Gainward has chosen to use backplate on the GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS', as well as letting the cooling system run over the edge of the card.

As we explained before, we have the usual display connectivity from the GTX 900 series: 3 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI 2.0 and 1 x DVI out.

The Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' requires 1 x 8-pin and 1 x 6-pin PCIe power.

If you want some insane performance, you can throw four cards into SLI. Thanks to the GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' being a dual-slot card, 4-way SLI is actually achievable here.
