Introduction

It’s been while since Nvidia’s last graphics card launch; more specifically, it’s been quite awhile since Kepler first hit the market. And if we really want to split hairs, the Maxwell cards we saw with the GTX 750 Ti were really only half-measures, hitting the budget segments earlier this year. Suffice it to say, we’ve been eagerly waiting for Nvidia to release “the next big thing” in graphics cards, and today brings the end of that wait: the GeForce GTX 960.

The Gigabyte GTX 960 G1 Gaming is the specific model we’re looking at today, and it’s latest in the company’s popular model series, coming with updated features for the namesake cooler. We’ve been impressed in the past with Windforce graphics cards, and we suspect this new one will be no different. It’s constructed in metal rather than plastic, and comes with an aggressive factory overclock and a few great features such as ShadowPlay, Adaptive Temperature Control, and GPU Boost clocks. Suffice it to say, we’re rather excited to get this card on the bench.

Let’s get started.
