EVGA Reveals GeForce GTX 980 Classified/ Hydro Copper
Now that Nvidia’s latest GeForce GTX 900 series is official and currently on sale, the sub-vendors are doing their magic and bringing in their own variants of the already powerful Maxwell based GPUs. EVGA just revealed GeForce GTX 980 Classified and GeForce GTX 980 Hydro Copper. Both of these GPUs are quite simply the most powerful GTX 980 variants we have seen up until now. Both of the GPUs will come with a factory over clocked clock and will feature different PCB design than the stock variants. So without wasting anymore time, let’s get down the specifications and details about both of the GPUs.
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Classified.
The GTX 980 Classified will be joining EVGA’s elite Classified series. This GPU is currently the fastest, most powerful GTX 980 we have seen, it comes with a a custom designed PCB as well as factory over clocked clocks and a nice, elegant design. EVGA is using the same colour combination of black, grey with accents of red we have been seeing in their Classified series. As the name suggests, this GPU is strictly for those who are always on the hunt to over clock their hardware to the max. The GPU offers the same heat sink layout we have seen in the GTX 780 Ti. EVGA has put in an ACX 2.0 cooler in it, this will ensure that the GPU performs silently and remain cool under idle situations. The GTX 980 Classified will be coming with a huge 1405 megahertz boost clock, and that too out of the box. Goes without saying that this card is a dual slot GPU. Moving on, this card can capable of SLI set up to 4 cards. CUDA cores still stand at 2048, base clock is 1291 megahertz and boost clock is 1405 megahertz. Memory size remains 4 gigs and will be clocked at 7 gigahertz. Below is what the GTX 980 Classified will look like.
EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Hydro Copper.
The GTX 980 Hydro Copper is a bit of a mystery here. We have no words on the specifications apart from the fact that it will have 2048 CUDA cores and it will be featuring the Hydro Copper cooler from EVGA. One obvious thing is that it will be arriving strictly for those who are looking for a water cooled GTX 980. It will be featuring the same 4 gigs memory and a 256 bit interface. Both the GPUs are expected to arrive somewhere next week. Stay tuned for more. Check out the image of GTX 980 Hydro Copper below.
