As we get closer to the official launch of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 more cards have been appearing. We have already seen Gigabyte’s G1 Gaming card, now cards from ASUS, EVGA and Zotac have been revealed!
On NVIDIA’s latest releases, the GTX 970 and 980 we saw many add-in card (AIC) partners that use custom cooling solutions feature a idle-fan off mode. This feature allows for the fans on the card to turn completely off when the card is at idle or below a temperature threshold. This in turn makes the card completely silent when you are not gaming. NVIDIA is planning at add this feature to their next generation GeForce GTX Titan X graphics card.
Even after receiving some very positive feedback on their launch version of the GTX 970, Zotac has decided to make some changes to the cooler and release a couple of more options for their customers.
It does not look like both AMD and NVIDIA will be releasing any new cards for the rest of the year. For those expecting to see the GeForce GTX 960 this month, it won’t be coming. It seems NVIDIA really does not even have to release it with the popularity of their GTX 980 / 970 cards. Back to AMD, they are prepping a faster Hawaii variant that should release a few months from now.
If you follow Galaxy or GALAX as they are now known as you know that their top of the line cards are their Hall of Fame Series. Well GALAX has just released their Hall of Fame cards for the GTX 980 and GTX 970. Each card is factory tuned with the highest core clock in its class.
