Gigabyte GTX 970 Xtreme Gaming Thoughts??

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi All,

Looking at purchasing the new Gigabyte GTX 970 Xtreme Gaming 4GB GPU. Just wondering if anyone has this card and what their thoughts are.

Is it worth it over any other GTX 970?

What Capabilities (OC) can be achieved?

How does it fair over the G1 Gaming Edition?

Thank you!

Hey I would like to know the same thing.

From what I gather Xtreme Gaming is basically an upgraded G1. My dillema is, either Zotac 970 AMP! Extreme Core Edition or Xtreme gaming, can't figure in between the two. But to your main question, it goes over the G1.

A mate of mine bought one, it's a well built card and a joy to behold but it tops out at a measly 1530mhz....my Gigabyte Windforce 970's both do 1550mhz....not worth the extra 100 bucks IMO

Could you please ask him about the temps after OC?

I heard the card was beast for even higher clocks than what it already has. Apparently it can be pushed a bit further no worries?

I have an OC msi gtx 970 and I'm happy with it, glad I purchased it, can imagine it would be the same for the card in your OP

I decided to bite the bullet and grab one. Got the one pictured up top. Not bad at all. I downgraded from a 980ti because i wasn't seeing the point in having such a beast card when all i do is play league of legends. So ill put up with the 970 xtreme until the new line comes out.

Just wondering what everyone's O/C for these GPU's are? Just bought myself the Gigabyte GTX970 Xtreme Gaming 4G (Base/Boost) clock: 1190 / 1342 MHz (Standard:1051/1178) and currently have O/C'd it to 1268/1420 with a Memory Clock of 7120Mhz. is this a good clock?

Can i go higher with increasing Voltage?

Thank You!
