Gigabyte has recently released a new GeForce GTX 960 featuring a super-compact dual-fan WindForce 2X cooling solution, the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 WF2X. The new Gigabyte GTX 960 WF2X is available in 2GB (model: N960OC-2GD) and 4GB (model: N960OC-4GD) memory variants. Honestly I don’t see the real need for a 4GB memory on a GTX 960 graphics card, since 2GB is pretty much enough for a GTX 960. Check out more details below.
Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 WF2X Released
The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 WF2X features a new compact WindForce 2X color with a noticeable blue highlighting on the cooler’s shroud. It features a factory overclock setting of 1190MHz base and 1253 MHz GPU boost, which is just a tad faster compared to the reference GTX 960. The Gigabyte GTX 960 G1 Gaming remains to have the highest factory overclock settings amongst Gigabyte’s GTX 960 lineup.
The new Gigabyte GTX 960 WF2X also features a dual-link DVI-I / DVI-D ports, an HDMI and DisplayPort. It has a system power supply requirement of 400W and draws power from a single 6-pin PCIE power connector.
Its heat sink features a direct heat pipe touch approach with a single 8mm copper heat pipe that is shape in “S” that connects the aluminum fin stack. Finally, the card measures only 181mm x 136mm x 42mm.
Price and Availability
Gigabyte didn’t mention the retail price of the GTX 960 WF2X but it is expected to be priced similarly with other small GTX 960 in the market. Expect the card to become available a few days from now on popular online stores.
