From Hardware BBQ:

[box type=”shadow” ]Gigabyte has made some significant changes in the GPU, one of them is the entire cooling system and even more overclocking headroom for those who want to get more performance manually. At 37 degrees closed case ambient temperatures with 52% fan speed, the temperatures barely cross 56 degrees celsius. But it’s strange to see Gigabyte did not bump the memory clock speed at the same time, considering the price for this card.[/box]


From Modders Inc.:

[box type=”shadow” ]Make no mistake about it, the Gigabyte GTX 980 G1 Gaming card is a beast. The GTX 980 G1 Gaming uses the same Windforce 3X cooler that the Gigabyte Titan-Z does and that should provide even more room for higher overclocks. Even with my limited overclocking session, I was able to go above 1500 MHz and push the memory to 8000 MHz. With a little more time and perhaps some voltage tweaks the card could be squeezed for a little more performance. [/box]


From Tech Powerup!:

[box type=”shadow” ]What is truly unique on the Gigabyte card, though, is the monitor output configuration. Gigabyte has crammed three DisplayPorts, two DVI ports, and an HDMI port onto their board, which is more than anyone else. Since the GTX 980 GPU can not support that many outputs at the same time, Gigabyte added a TMDS switch chip that automatically decides how to route these outputs. This could prove useful to gamers with exotic monitor output configurations, or as a means to simplify connectivity. I am not yet completely convinced it is worth the extra cost, though.[/box]
