Newegg has cooked up a nice graphics deal for TR readers. Until 1:59 AM Central Time Friday, the e-tailer is taking 4% off a hot-clocked GeForce GTX 980 with coupon code TR1111VGA. The deal applies to Gigabyte's GV-N980WF3OC-4GD, which can be had for just $556.79 after the discount.
With 1178MHz base and 1279MHz boost clocks, the card is a little bit faster than the reference design but a little bit slower than the Gigabyte G1 Gaming GTX 980 we looked at last month. Its dual-slot, triple-fan cooler looks similar to the one on the G1 Gaming, but with fewer heatpipes and what appears to be a slightly slimmer radiator. You still get dual eight-pin power inputs and a generous assortment of digital video outputs that includes three DisplayPort, two DVI, and one HDMI.
Unlike a lot of GeForce GTX 980s, the GV-N980WF3OC-4GD is actually in stock. Shipping is free, too, but the card isn't part of Nvidia's latest game bundle promotion. It does, however, come with the OC Guru II tweaking utility that Scott lauded in the G1 Gaming card review. All things considered, the GV-N980WF3OC-4GD is a pretty nice deal for $557 shipped.
