Biostar releases first own GTX 960 card
The Taiwanese motherboard maker Biostar, which is not usually associated with video cards, has jumped on the newly created GeForce GTX 960 wagon by releasing the first company graphics card based on GTX 960 technology. The card is called VN9605XPX1 and includes Biostar-designed PCB and cooler. The cooler has an aluminum heat sink and two cooling fans that spin only when the GPU underneath is under load and reaches a specific temperature point.
As to the PCB – it houses the NVIDIA GM206 GPU, which is the heart of every GeForce GTX 960 video card. The GPU has 1024 CUDA cores and runs at 1127 MHz (1187 MHz Turbo) and gets fed by 4 GB of GDDR5 memory that runs at 7012 MHz. The card also has two DVI ports, one HDMI port and one DisplayPort connector.
The new Biostar GeForce GTX 960 is available now for around USD 200.
