I worked for a small computer retailer for just under 10 years before joining the ranks of TweakTown and I still fondly remember the brands of video cards that we would sell. One of the more popular ones at the time was Gainward, as they had some truly silent, passively-cooled cards that some of our customers loved.
These PCs were built with the passively-cooled Gainward cards as they were living room PCs that the customers didn't want making noise. I still remember the brand to this day, and in the nine months that I've been reviewing video cards for TweakTown now, this is my first time with a Gainward product. It just so happens that the first Gainward card I received was an enthusiast-grade GeForce GTX 980 Ti, the new Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' to be exact. GS, if you didn't already know, stands for 'Golden Sample', something that Gainward used to push a few years ago.
All GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards are pretty much the same, with AIB partners like Gainward playing around with the cooling and the display output configuration. Gainward has kept the identical display output configuration that we know and love from the reference Maxwell-based GTX 900 series cards, which is nice to see.
The Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' has the same GM200 GPU, meaning we have the identical 2816 CUDA cores, 384-bit memory bus, and 6GB of GDDR5 that the rest of the GTX 980 Ti cards have. Gainward has pushed an 11% overclock on the GM200 GPU, up to 1152MHz on the Base Clock, resulting in a Boost Clock of 1241MHz.
Availability & Price
You can pick up the Gainward GeForce GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' in a few markets, including Australia, Vietnam, Malaysia, and Korea. The GTX 980 Ti Phoenix 'GS' has an MSRP of $799.
