GIGABYTE are trying to send the message that "Quality Components make Quality VGA cards" and "More Power Phases + Ultra Durable 2 = Lower System Temperature + Extreme Power Efficiency".
It does seem like they are trying to capitalise on the success of their high quality motherboards and implement similar power saving and high quality components to their VGA lineup of products.
The latest graphics cards to come from GIGABYTE use a custom Zalman cooler for the GPU (memory does not have any cooling) and the cards are also bundled with Neverwinter Nights 2.
