When the GTX 980 and the GTX 970 arrived (our full review here), Nvidia's board partners didn't immediately flood the market with all of their reference and custom card variants (although there were several). One of those vendors is Palit, which has now revealed its GTX 980 Super-JetStream. This graphics card is the company's fastest GTX 980 variant, and it comes with a respectable spec sheet to back that up.
The card is overclocked to have the GM204-400 GPU run at a speedy 1203 MHz, and it will boost at around 1304 MHz. Memory is also overclocked to run at an effective speed of 7.2 GHz. For comparison, the reference GTX 980 runs at 1126 MHz, boosts at 1216 MHz and has an effective memory speed of 7.0 GHz.
Palit also built the GTX 980 Super-JetStream with a custom PCB and cooler, which should improve overclocking headroom thanks to more stable power delivery and improved cooling. The JetStream cooler comes with two LED-lit fans that can be switched off when the GPU isn't running a heavy workload.
A Mini-HDMI port, three Mini-DisplayPort interfaces and a DVI port handle display connectivity, all of which are mounted on the bottom expansion slot, which should make it possible to build single-slot water cooled cards.
The company didn't reveal when the card would hit US shelves, although it is available (opens in new tab)in the UK for £469 GBP.
