Silent-Pipe II
Witness the evolution of the revolution. Silent-Pipe II technology that generates natural convection provides more efficient cooling without the use of fans. This is achieved through a unique design that draws cool air in through a new proprietary front-flow thermal module to remove heat from the heat sink on the VGA card. With the improved natural airflow generated by GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II technology, even hardcore 3D processing applications can run smoothly and reliably with minimal noise from high-speed VGA card cooling fans. With its extremely quiet operation, GIGABYTE Silent-Pipe II technology is ideal for home theatre and media center enthusiasts who require impeccable performance from high-end graphics cards without the intolerable whir of cooling fans.

Turbo Force Ultra <o:p></o:p>
Each GIGABYTE Turbo Force Ultra edition VGA card includes T3 technology and V-tuner3 overclocking utility. T3 technology comprises a series of performance tuning processes that ensure maximum performance and st<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:PersonName w:st="on">abi</st1:PersonName>lity. GIGABYTE Graphics Accelerators guarantee high clock speeds with Turbo Force Ultra, while other cards can only be overclocked at the user’s own risk. Additionally, Turbo Force Ultra cards would deliver 30~50% better performance than standard cards for enthusiasts together with unprecedented realism for 3D graphics applications.
