    •newegg Unlocked Digital PowerThis card boasts an all-new Unlocked Digital Power architecture that
    provides record breaking potential. The key components involved include the Unlocked BIOS, digital PWM chipset, and an enhanced power supply design. Unlocked BIOS allows one-click unlocking of all protection for extreme overclocking. Digital PWM controller provides more stable and precise voltage by digital signal. Enhanced power design outputs 2x power for maximum OC potential.

    •newegg NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0Ensure that the GPU runs at its peak and the game is at its highest frame rate possible. It offers new levels of customization, including GPU temperature target, overclocking, and unlocked voltage.

    •newegg NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical SyncNothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
