EVGA Announce their 4GB GTX 960

 

EVGA have announced their range of 4GB GTX 960s, which feature a "true 4GB" of VRAM, so these 4GB GTX 960's will not have the memory issues present in the GTX 970.

Over Nvidia's reference design EVGA are very happy to fit this card with their ACX 2.0+ cooling system which offers a longer lifespan and 20% higher cooling efficiency, it also has a 0dB fan mode for silent operation at idle or low loads.

Here is what EVGA say on their own site;

 

"The EVGA GeForce GTX 960 delivers incredible performance, power efficiency, and gaming technologies that only NVIDIA Maxwell technology can offer. This is the perfect upgrade, offering 60% faster performance and twice the power efficiency of previous generation cards*. Plus, it features VXGI for realistic lighting, support for smooth, tear-free NVIDIA G-SYNC technology, and Dynamic Super Resolution for 4K-quality gaming on 1080P displays. The latest versions come outfitted with 4GB of high speed GDDR5 memory giving you higher texture qualities and better 4K performance!

The new EVGA ACX 2.0+ cooler brings new features to the award winning EVGA ACX 2.0 cooling technology. A Memory MOSFET Cooling Plate (MMCP) reduces MOSFET temperatures up to 11°C, and optimized Straight Heat Pipes (SHP) reduce GPU temperature by an additional 5°C. ACX 2.0+ coolers also feature optimized swept fan blades, double ball bearings and an extreme low power motor, delivering more air flow with less power, unlocking additional power for the GPU."

EVGA will release 3 4GB GTX 960s, the ACX 2.0+ the SuperOC and the FTW. As you can see above the SuperOC and the FTW feature higher clock speeds and a higher binned chip, so expect better overclocks with these samples, but as always the silicon lottery applies.

Each GPU is powered by a single 8-pin GPU power and will feature a dual Bios. The GPUs memory will be clocked at 7018MHz for all versions.

my 2gb 770 seems to run everything just fine, at max settings at 1920x1200, it seems mad that everyone is vram crazy these days. unless ya running high res/multi monitors isnt it just a waste? many videos out there testing how much vram is needed. i know 4k is a thing, but anyone running a 4k panel isnt gonna be using a £200 gpu are they?Quote

It's generally the ultra texture packs that are pushing up VRAM. Can't test it myself yet, but apparently Skyrim with the ultra textures is about 3.5GB, GTA4 with all the juicy mods too, is apparently higher.Quote

Exactly, I've got a GTX 760 2GB at the same res and have no problems. VRAM usage reading on programs is also not 100% accurate, for example, I was running a game on the same settings on both a GTX 260 and a 760 and the 760 was listed as using quite a bit more vram.

My opinion is for full HD 2GB is more than enough for now but if you wanna run 1440p or higher than a 4GB card is a good investment.Quote

All depends on the price really. To make any sense it needs to still come in way under the lowest 970. Because, RAMgate or no RAMgate, the 970 is a much better card.Quote
