Our fourth GeForce GTX 960 video card is here thanks to GALAX, continuing our GTX 960 train of reviews on the back of the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 960 AMP! Edition, continuing with the EVGA GeForce GTX 960 SuperSC ACX 2.0+, and the MSI GeForce GTX 960 GAMING 2G OC Edition review.
Some of you might not know who GALAX are, but late last year GALAXY and KFA2 merged to become GALAX. GALAXY was founded back in 1994, but it really kicked things off in 2000 where it started making its "Hall of Fame" series of video cards, with the beautiful white PCBs, and of course, kick ass performance. GALAX doesn't ditch GALAXY and KFA2 away either, as the company will continue to support all of its GALAXY and KFA2 customers and their respective warranties.
What we have here today is my first GALAX video card, but I did use countless GALAXY branded cards in the previous years. I was excited to see what GALAX could offer me against the likes of the ZOTAC, MSI and EVGA cards we've reviewed already, so let's jump straight into the 'Quick Specs' before talking about the pricing and availability on the GALAX GeForce GTX 960 EXOC.
GALAX has steered away from the reference GTX 960 design from NVIDIA, opting to use a different display output configuration. The standard for GTX 960s has been three DisplayPort outputs backed up by a HDMI port. The GALAX GeForce GTX 960 EXOC has a DisplayPort 1.2 port, HDMI port, and two DVI ports. We still have a single 8-pin PCIe power connector, and a great cooling set up that we'll go into very soon.
Availability & Price
Something that GALAX does that stands out from the rest when it comes to purchasing their products, is that they can sell them to you, direct. The GALAX GeForce GTX 960 EXOC can be purchased from GALAX for $209.99, and at the time of writing they had 19 left in stock.
