Gigabyte announced a new entry to the crowded GeForce GTX 960 field today. The GTX 960 Xtreme Gaming offers a host of overclocking features and some extra flash over lesser GTX 960s. The card ships with a moderate overclock to 1279MHz base and 1367MHz boost clocks. This card also comes with 4GB of GDDR5 memory running at 7010MT/s.
The list of overclocking-friendly features on this card starts with high-quality power regulation. Gigabyte uses a six-pin and an eight-pin PCIe power input for the Xtreme Gaming. Power irregularity warning lights are included on the PCIe power inputs, which should help users troubleshoot any instability caused by a flaky power supply.
A modified Gigabyte Windforce cooler should help keep the GM206 GPU chilly if users are tempted to turn up the clocks further. This hefty cooler includes integrated RGB LEDs for custom lighting colors and animations. The cooler also features counter-rotating fans for a bit of extra visual flair. Gigabyte includes a neat demonstration of the lighting in the release announcement.
