Yesterday came the news that ASUS was releasing a GeForce GTX 980 20th Anniversary Gold Edition video card. It is a high-end card with a custom cooler and a huge factory overclock, but that isn't the only thing ASUS is working on. The company also has the GeForce GTX 970 Turbo video card, which has a 1008MHz core clock and a 1228MHz boost clock. The revised stats on the GM204 core features 1664 CUDA cores, 112 texturing units, 56 raster units, and 4GB of GDDR5 on a 256-bit interface, with that VRAM split into two sections just like all the other GTX 970s. However, this GTX 970 Turbo makes use of a mini PCB and a white cooling shroud for an altogether unique appearance. The cooler has some red on it echo the company's ROG line, and is a blower-style cooler to help push the heat out of the case. The rear I/O is not the standard affair on a GTX 970, as ASUS has equipped the Turbo with dual DVI ports, one HDMI port, and one DisplayPort. Up top are two SLI connectors for some Quad-SLI action, and both 6-pin and 8-pin PCIe power connections to drive the card.
Like the GTX 980 20th Anniversary Gold Edition, ASUS did not reveal a price or release date for the GTX 970 Turbo.
