Last month, Asus introduced a limited-edition GeForce GTX 980 to celebrate 20 years of making graphics cards. This "Gold Edition" has the highest GPU clocks we've seen from the GTX 980 to date: 1317MHz base and 1431MHz boost, up substantially from the 1126/1216MHz defaults. It also has a steep $749.99 price tag, but you could get one completely free of charge. We're giving away a GTX 980 Gold Edition to one lucky TR reader.
I'll let that sink in while you behold the blinged-out beast.
I dig the dual-slot cooler's angular lines and blacked-out pipes. The fans spin down completely under lighter loads, and there's a nifty defroster feature designed specifically for LN2 overclocking. If an OC attempt goes awry, pressing a button on the card resets the clocks and voltages to their default values. Pretty slick.
