The new EVGA GeForce GTX 970 is powered by the next-generation NVIDIA Maxwell architecture, giving you incredible performance, unmatched power efficiency, and cutting-edge features.
Maxwell is the most advanced GPU architecture ever made, designed to be the engine of next-generation gaming. Inspired by light, it was designed to solve some of the most complex lighting and graphics challenges in visual computing. For the first time, gaming GPUs can dynamically render indirect light using the new VXGI (Voxed Global Illumination technology. ) Scenes are significantly more lifelike as light interacts more realistically in the game environment.
EVGA is also proud to introduce the best graphics card cooler ever
With optimized Swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor, EVGA ACX 2.0 delivers more air flow with less power, unlocking additional power for the GPU.
Introducing EVGA PrecisionX™ 16 version 5.3.5 with full support for Microsoft DirectX® 12 OSD support. This latest version of EVGA PrecisionX™ adds new features, overclocking support, functionality, and full support for the upcoming Microsoft DirectX® 12 API.Key Features

".. I was able to overclock significantly and that is one of the great benefits of the 970, one of the benefits of the Maxwell architecture allows for some pretty insane overclocks....."
"Overclocking our sample worked extremely well, reaching the highest clocks inn our GTX 970 test group. Memory topped out at beyond 2 GHz, in part due to the card's well-overclocking Samsung chips. EVGA's heatsink does not cool the memory chips with the baseplate, but uses the fans' airflow instead, an approach that works quite well."
"With the ACX/ACX 2.0, EVGA designed a special heatsink with a lot of dissipation surfaces. To maximize dissipation volume, EVGA used a few tricks, such as tall fins at the sides of the cooler. The heatsink was designed in such a way to minimize airflow turbulence between the fans, with clever barriers directing the airflow."
