In addition to a blower-style cooler, the new Gigabyte Geforce GTX 970 Twin-Turbo also uses a custom shorter PCB, which allows the cooler to pull air from both the front and the back of the cooler and draw more air, which is the reason behind the Twin-Turbo name.

The factory-overclocked version will work at 1101MHz for the GPU base and 1241MHz for the GPU Boost clocks while the standard version will work at reference 1076MHz for the GPU base and 1216MHz for the GPU Boost clock. Both versions will pack 4GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 7012MHz.
