Palit has recently revealed their fastest flagship GTX 980 graphics card, featuring a base clock speed of 1203MHz, – the Palit GeForce GTX 980 Super JetStream. If you think GTX 980 JetStream couldn’t get any better, well here it is, the Super JetStream. It features an eye catching Red and Black color theme and its cooler’s shroud really looks attractive. I think this kind of theme reminds me of an Asus ROG graphics cards or MSI’s latest Twin Frozr V cooler. Anyway, the GTX 980 Super JetStream features an 8-Phase power design for overclocking and stability, 0-db fan noise and many more. Check out the rest of its features and specifications below.
Palit GeForce GTX 980 Super JetStream Features
The Palit GTX 980 Super JetStream features 0-dB Tech where the fans won’t run until the temperature reaches 60°C and above. Its cooler features a cooper base plate with four heatpipes transporting the heat to the large aluminum fins. The aluminum fins are then cooled by two 10CM Smart fans that feature a TurboFan Blade design. The cooler also features an optimized air flow design where each adjacent fan rotates in a different direction to reduce airflow conflicts. Not to mention the two 10CM fans features LED lighting that gives the Super JetStream an eye catching looks.
It features a unique 8-Phase PWM design that reduces maximum current load for each phase to stabilize the voltage level and improve overclocking ability. It also provides another 30% current capacity, and features DrMOS that offers high current circuits, low noise operation, and effective reduction of heat generating.
And just like any other GeForce GTX 900 series graphics cards, the Palit GeForce GTX 980 Super JetStream supports NVIDIA GSync, NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround, Adaptive V-Sync, GPU Boost 2.0, PhysX, 4K display output and more.
Palit has also included an overclocking utility called Thunder Master that fully utilizes NVIDIA GPU Boost technology for intelligent monitoring of clock speed, ensuring that the GPU runs safely at its peak and the game is at its highest frame rate.
Under the hood, the Palit GeForce GTX 980 Super JetStream is configured to run at 1,127MHz base clock speed with boost clock speed of 1,216MHz, and still has room for overclocking. Its 4GB GDDR5 memory is clocked at 3500MHz (7000MHz effective). Check out the rest of its specifications below.
