GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 960 Gigabyte WindForce 2X OC 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by Gigabyte.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1216MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1279MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock remains the same while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB: a gimmick which doesn't yield any performance boost and can be considered market to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.


Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by Gigabyte's WINDFORCE 2X With Unique Blade Fan which is Equipped with two 90mm unique blade fan and three copper heat pipes. The airflow is spilt through the triangle design at the fan edge, and is guided smoothly through the fan by special 3D stripe curve design. At the same time, it effectively enhanced the cooling capacity while reducing air turbulence.


Performance
Benchmarks indicate a 8% performance over the reference GeForce GTX 960 2GB.

If you're happy to reduce settings then you should be okay for lower settings. You'll Probably find that med-high would be okay at that resolution.

Contrary to what myself and Stefanosgr17 said below, I just received my card yesterday which was the 1.1 revision with 2 x 6 pin power connectors. The original 1.0 revision, however, does have a 6 pin and an 8 pin.

Quite interested in moving to this card, what performance to others see from this? I like quality graphics so I don't mind compromising at 30 FPS if I can get the latest games looking great.

Seconded, though this may be my naivety but I'm surprised a 960 has a 6 and 8 pin when 970's seem to have two 6 pins.

As I said in my post at the top, the 1.0 original release has 1 x 8 pin and 1 x 6 pin. The 1.1 revision has 2 x 6 pin. This was quite confusing when buying since the 1.0 specs were quoted yet I received the 1.1 card which is better but it meant I'd bought the wrong power cables.
