Nice for a GTX470, though a 5870 is tempting at this price...

In is no secret that we very much admire Gigabytes high end motherboards, their X58A range is industry leading and the 890FXA boards match anything else available on that platform. In terms of graphics cards Gigabyte often come to market early with...

The GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 470 Super Overclock Edition is an incredibly fast version of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 graphics card. Sure you pay a premium, but you are getting a premium product! Superior performance, a barely audible cooler that does a...

The Gigabyte GTX470 Super Overclock is a very powerful card, as shown by our testing. With the ability to compete with a CrossFire 5770 system, this card packs a considerable punch. Unless users decide to go for high end models, however, the...

Gigabyte’s Super Overclock series has been a regular fixture here at Hardware Canucks but the last few attempts to carry this brand over to ATI cards met with mixed results. In this review we take a look at the SoC’s return to NVIDIA...

In a world dominated by reference design video cards we find extremely satisfying when a company puts forth the time and effort to push the design limits, and create something unique. This was our first experience with a Super OverClocked Edition...

As a GeForce GTX 470, Gigabyte's Super Overclock card is certainly worthy of praise. Turning NVIDIA's hot-and-noisy design on its head, Gigabyte's custom derivative is cooler, quieter, less power hungry and, most importantly, over 10 per...

for the product we test today. Will it be good? Will it be able to handle the heat levels and keep noise under control? I mean, Gigabyte applied really serious heat pipe based cooling solution on top of the GTX 470 with three active fans. Well, you...

Gigabyte’s GV-N470SO-13I Super Overclock edition card performs very well compared to Nvidia’s reference GeForce GTX 470. The ~100 MHz core clock and ~200 MHz shader clock rate advantage result in tangible speed-ups in a number of games. More...

International Review By Tom's Hardware on

Gigabyte hat uns eine sehr hoch übertaktete GeForce GTX 470 zukommen lassen. Ist die speziell gekühlte Karte die zusätzlichen 70 Euro auch wert? Wir haben die GV-N470SO-13I getestet und mit dem GTX 470 Referenzmodell von Nvidia...

La famiglia di GPU NVIDIA della serie Fermi comprende, al momento attuale, differenti soluzioni che vanno ad occupare livelli di prezzo che partono da circa 200,00€, con le soluzioni basate su GPU GeForce GTX 460, in poi. Sono due le architetture...

La GeForce GTX 470 SOC est une solution graphique étonnante. Plus longue et moins lourde que sa petite sœur classique, son design personnalisé, aussi bien du côté du refroidissement que de l’électronique...

International Review By Sabios del PC on 90

La version de Gigabyte 470 SO funciona muy por encima de la version de serie de la Gigabyte 470. Si bien no es simplemente una version 470 con overclocking de serie, sino que desde Gigabyte la han rediseñado para obtener un mejor rendimiento, con...

GeForce GTX 470 byla po svém uvedení nesmyslně drahá a Nvidia se před pár týdny rozhodla, že bude zlevňovat. Tento model se tak dostal do cenové relace okolo 7 tisíc korun, což je teritorium...

International Review By Hardwareluxx on

Wir waren ziemlich überrascht als die Gigabyte GeForce GTX 470 SuperOverclock bei uns eintraf, denn sie kam weder mit Verpackung noch mit Zubehör in einem Paket direkt aus der Fabrik. Wir mussten schon zwei Mal hinschauen, um herauszufinden,...
