Gainward will be releasing three different cards based on NVIDIA’s GM204 silicon. These cards include a GeForce GTX 980 reference card, a slightly non-reference GeForce GTX 970 and a completely non-reference Phantom Edition GeForce GTX 970 card.
The most notable card is the Gainward GeForce GTX 970 Phantom card. This card features Gainward’s custom cooling solution which comes with fans than actually can be removed for easy cleaning. The card will also most likely ship with a factory overclock.
The Gainward GeForce GTX 970 card will feature a slightly different cooling shroud than the reference card, but will carry with it the same reference design as other cards.
The Gainward GeForce GTX 980, much like all GTX 980 graphics cards that we will see on launch day will carry the reference design, so not much to see here.
