Some fans of mixed-martial arts probably do not remember, or maybe are not aware of, what the sport was like in the mid-90s. Back when UFC started, for example, the rules were very limited and it wasn't as much a sport as it was a free-for-all. It took several years of refinement before it gained mainstream acceptance. Despite the detractors, it eventually found a core group of enthusiasts who saw great potential in the sport and supported it until its presence, influence and importance became undeniable.
In much the same way, computer graphics for the PC started out as rudimentary representations. Early video cards were merely "color cards", which provided an escape from the monochrome doldrums on the screen, usually in retina punishing green or amber. Modern gamers are often not even aware of just how far video card technology and PC graphics technology has come. In the MMA world, new talent crops up every generation to take the game to the next level, just as the most innovative technologies from video card manufacturers propel video games beyond entertainment into works of art. Gigabyte, as one of the world's leading names in PC components, has been at the forefront of every major technological leap and is here to usher in NVIDIA's latest Kepler line of GPUs.
The Gigabyte GTX 670 comes factory overclocked with a 980MHz base clock and a custom PCB, as well as heatsink design. The Gigabyte GTX 670 video card is outfitted with the Windforce 3X cooling system, comprised of a DHT heatsink with the patent pending Triangle Cool technology design, RAM heatsink plate and three ultra-quiet PWM fans, which not only effectively lowers GPU temperatures but barely produce any noise, as well. Armed with 1344 CUDA cores and 2GB of GDDR5 on a 256-bit bus, the Gigabyte GTX 670 video card is capable of delivering next-generation GeForce performance that leaves the competition in the dust.
