After a little more work in its labs, Gigabyte has managed to build a new non-stock Radeon HD 6970, one that makes use of the WindForce 3X (tri-fan) cooler, like the GV-R697OC-2GD, and has its GPU and memory clocked at 920 MHz 5500 MHz, respectively (880/5500 MHz stock, 900/5500 MHz for the R697OC).

Gigabyte’s card also features an Ultra Durable VGA+ design (2oz copper PCB, a Proadlizer capacitor, Ferrite Core and Metal Chokes, Low RDS MOSFET), 1536 Stream Processors, a 256-bit memory interface, 2GB of GDDR5 VRAM, CrossFireX support, and four display outputs – two DVI, one HDMI and one DisplayPort.

Gigabyte’s GV-R697OC2-2GD has yet to be priced (or dated for that matter).
