Gigabyte clocks the card's Fiji GPU at 1010 MHz and its 4GB of High-Bandwidth Memory at 1 GT/s. Prospective overclockers can use the included OC Guru II software to push the card even further. The newcomer stays chilly with Gigabyte's "Windforce 3X" cooling solution, a triple-fan arrangement which we've enjoyed on other cards from the company. The card comes with a metal backplate, as well.
A total of five display outputs grace the card's backplate—three DisplayPorts, an HDMI connector, and a dual-link DVI port. Much like its direct competitors, Gigabyte's version requires two 8-pin PCIe power connectors, so make sure your power supply is up to the task. There's yet no word on pricing and availability, but given the Asus and Sapphire versions hover roughly around the $550 mark, that's likely where this card will land.
