Serious gamers require serious gear. That is why Gigabyte has developed the Super Overclock Series. All of the GPUs in these graphics cards have been cherry-picked for top performance, efficiency and reliability. Innovative GPU Gauntlet Sorting selection process ensures that only the highest-performing GPU processors are used for these graphics cards. Coupled with Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable VGA boards, users can rest assured that the Super Overclock Series graphic cards will not let them down as they enter the digital battleground.

The GV-N470SO-13I features overclocked 700MHz Core Clock (standard 607MHz) and Gigabyte’s WINDFORCE 3X, 14 phase PWM design, OC Guru graphic card smart tuner and voltage read point. Coupled with GTX 470’s full Microsoft DirectX 11 support and NVIDIA PhysX, CUDA, SLI and 3D Vision technologies, the GV-N470SO-13I enables immersive, realistic visuals and explosive HD gaming performance so you can dominate the competition.

  • newegg GIGABYTE GPU Gauntlet Sorting Gigabyte’s proprietary database analysis system evaluates the GPU core engine, shader engine, and memory, and selects the qualified GPU processors for upcoming maximum overclocking ability and stability test using proprietary professional testing toolkit and Graphics benchmark (FurMark and 3DMark Vantage). Final power switching and stability test will pick up those GPUs with the best power efficiency and lowest power consumption, which are qualified for the Super Overclock Series. Thus, the Super Overclock Series have been factory overclocked at optimal stability point (Super OC point), an exact balance between high frequency and efficient power consumption.
  • newegg WINDFORCE 3X: Anti-turbulence Cooling WINDFORCE 3X features 3 ultra quiet PWM fans. The special inclined triple-fan design effectively minimizes the flow of turbulence between three fans. With a unique vapor chamber, WINDFORCE 3X is able to transfer heat from the hot spot to the cool spot as thermal energy becomes evaporated to the surrounding air. By capillary action, the condensed liquid droplets circulate back to the base of chamber. The cycles of evaporation and condensation enhance heat dissipation for greater cooling efficiency. Moreover, WINDFORCE 3X is equipped with three copper heat pipes to strengthen the speed of heat dissipation.
  • newegg Ultra Durable VGA + Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable VGA+ features 5+1 quality components to support top performance in graphics benchmarking. Its five units of NEC Proadlizer (also known as film capacitor) are able to provide 1.6 times purer power supply compared to traditional power design for super overclocking ability.
  • newegg Pure Power Architecture Unlike Standard GTX 470 graphics cards using five power phases, the Gigabyte GV-N470SO-13I features a 14 phase PWM design with 12 for the GPU and 2 for memory, leading to more stable system and better overclocking capability. 12 power phase status LED indicators indicate graphics card’s current power phase, helping users monitor power consumption.
  • newegg OC Guru – Graphic Card Smart Tuner Gigabyte’s graphics card tweaking utility OC Guru puts together the best combination of software/hardware overclocking, with 3 profiles to cater to users’ different needs - OC (for overclocking mode), Gaming (for gaming mode), and Green (for power saving mode). Gigabyte’s distinctive adjustable software offers gamers to adjust tuners for memory, voltage, and fan speed.
  • newegg Voltage Read Point Gigabyte’s specific voltage read point allows users to change the voltage simply through software instead of manually adjusting any components on PCB, offering hardcore gamers an ultimate benching experience at overclocking competition. It is easy for overclockers to master the platform and monitor GPU workload at any time just through voltage read point.

Review 3/4/2012 11:28:29 PM

Pros: Great performance for many games played (genres mostly played: MMO and RTS). Not as bad on heat as thought before purchase. Handles all games on top settings for most (95%) of environments, but the fans working harder is noticeable. Never had a problem with card 'crashing' during play.

Cons: Card can be unstable around start up. Approximately 8% of computer starts, video locks up. Sometimes it shows the starting Windows screen in psychedelic waves (effectively locked) and other times after logging in to Windows and manually starting a program (not tied to any specific program) the screen will go black and will not come back until power cycle (effectively start up twice).

Overall Review: PS: Corsair - Enthusiast Series CMPSU-850TX 850W
MB: Gigabyte - GA-890FXA-UD5 AM3 AMD 890FX
CPU: AMD - Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition Deneb 3.5GHz
MEM: G.SKILL - Ripjaws Series 8GB (4 x 2GB)
Case: Cooler Master - HAF 932, RC-932-KKN3-GP

So close to being awesome 8/12/2011 12:55:59 PM

Pros: Lower power usage, quieter, more overclocking options.

Cons: Quality/stability.

Overall Review: I got two of these, both were not stable at stock speeds. It's really caught me off guard because they really emphasize that they use better quality components and a non-reference PCB to give better performance. My thought is though that they just simply cut things too close. Both cards I got were not able to pass a simple OCCT GPU test. My overclocked Zotac GTX 470 can handle it just fine ( 760Mhz GPU/ 1920Mhz Mem). I have been very disappointed in the quality of these cards considering I have been a Gigabyte use for years and have never had any problems.

BUYER BEWARE 7/16/2011 8:11:04 AM

Pros: "WHEN" it works, it's fast.


I've already RMA'd this card once because it locked up constantly with artifacts on the screen, or would lock up at boot up time.

I received my RMA'd video card back, with the same serial number, but didn't receive any communication as to whether they had fixed any problem or done anything at all.

Now, I'm back to lockups during games and lockups during boot time.

While the card was being RMA'd, I used a GTX 8800 without any problems.


Overall Review: I have a Gigabyte motherboard, a Corsair 750W power supply, and a well vented Thermaltake case.

Great Card 7/2/2011 9:53:10 AM

Pros: Three working Fans

I like this GPU. just waiting for the price to to drop into the 1xx area do i can run SLI with these.

Cons: Fans are facing down... shouldn't they be facing up? thats where heat goes... up.

Overall Review: The green and orange led lights make my case look nice in a ALL blue set up... :)

Software can be improved or remade into a better one. something that will be usful to the user. wouldn't they like us to buy there GPU card and then RAVE about their Software that came with it or do they rather hear us say, software stinks and MSI Afterburner is way better??

king's chip 6/1/2011 12:28:59 PM

Pros: Great perfromance, on par with 570 gtx
Tessellation, dx11, shader model 5, 1280 mb ram
Run stone giant demo, unigine, endless city to see what its all about, what tessellation & displacement mapping can do for detail and overall polygon count

Cons: a little warm (45 C idle, 70s C load), recommend running a scaling autofan profile with a program like msi afterburner or evga precision

thought the software was garbage, dont need to use it tho

Overall Review: idles cooler than my gtx 260 in the same antec 1200 case
