The EVGA GeForce GTX 980 Superclocked is a premium graphics card for the die hard gamer and those looking for overclocking capabilities.
By default the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 GPU features the new and improved cooling capabilities thanks to ACX 2.0. The GPU is based on the 28 nm architecture GM204 chip with “Maxwell”. Compared to the GTX 700 (Kepler) series, “Maxwell” is remarkable for its higher performance per watt.
Other technological innovations are “Super Dynamic” resolution, the technique of scaling to represent 4K quality in 1080p displays and sampling “Programmable Multi-Pixel”, a technology that improves image quality by reducing compression artifacts.
The GeForce GTX 980 has a dynamic frequency adjustment that increases performance automatically. TXAA edge smoothing provides even better image quality without compromising performance. The GPU has 2048 shader units and frequency of 1266 MHz und (Boost: 1367 MHz), the GDDR5 memory of 4 GB communicates via a memory controller 265 bits and operates at 1752 MHz (effective data rate of 7010 MHz).
