Default NVIDIA GTX 960 5-Way Roundup Comment Thread

The GTX 960 is a polarizing graphics card but we have five of the best models on the market going head to head. These may just change your opinion of NVIDIA's latest GPU.

I like having a single review (roundup) to directly compare models. I think it's a more clean and direct way to do it. Once the initial GPU review is out, there is only really a point in knowing how the rest are head to head with on another.

The gtx 960 seems to have massive variance in board/cooler design.

Nice one!

How does this work; do you have review models sent to you by the manufacturers or do you go out and purchase them yourself?
If it's the latter, could you include an itx version in these roundups for variety? e.g: Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 OC ITX 1228MHZ 2GB 7.0GHZ GDDR5 2xDVI HDMI DisplayPort PCI-E Video Card - GV-N960IXOC-2GD

They all perform so close to each other, it's pretty pointless to even review that particular section these days.
The form factor and acoustics is where it's at. On that note, that massive gigabyte card is just retarded. People are going towards smaller, efficient, quieter cards and they just derp their shit and still require 2*6pins.

They are sent to us. I'll request the Gigabyte ITX version and maybe the EVGA one too.

Finally some justice done and credit given where it's due. Zotac also nailed the design of the gtx 970 but it went unnoticed.
