Gainward has the usual 2816 CUDA cores in the GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' thanks to it being powered by the GM200 GPU from NVIDIA. This is baked on the 28nm process, with 6GB of GDDR5 spread out on a 384-bit memory bus providing 336GB/sec of memory bandwidth.
The GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' has a Base Clock of 1152MHz, a Boost Clock of 1241MHz, and its 6GB of RAM is clocked at 3.5GHz (7GHz effective). The overclock that Gainward has used on the GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' is a decent 11% overclock, but it is much cooler than the reference GTX 980 Ti, thanks to its improved heat sinks and cooling technology.
Not only does the cooling on the Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' look great, it performs just as great as well.
The triple-fan cooler that Gainward has deployed onto the GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' is an excellent piece of kit. The two-slot design makes it simple to use in SLI setups, but it is also super-silent during those all-night gaming sessions.
Gainward has used a back plate on the back of the board which takes off some of the heat from the back of the card, and it also protects the back of the card from any accidental damage.
Here we have a closer shot of the heat pipe system that Gainward has used on the GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS'.
Once again, we have a closer look at the card, this time towards the end of the card. Gainward is only asking for 1 x 8-pin and 1 x 6-pin PCIe power connectors to power the card. We can see that the heat sink keeping the VRMs nice and cool hangs over the edge of the card.
Peaking under the clear fans, we have that massive heat sink and heat pipe array keeping the GM200 GPU cool.
