As impressive of a card as the GTX 960 is for more budget conscious PC gaming enthusiasts, many have been deterred by the GPU’s 2GB of DDR5 RAM which, while still plenty for most games, is becoming more limiting as time goes by. Fortunately, EVGA has the solution in the form of a new variant of the NVIDIA GPU that packs twice the RAM, meaning 4GB of DDR5 RAM.
Today EVGA announced its plans to move forward with a new variant of the GTX 960, dubbed the SuperSC, that’s been doubled up with 4GB of DDR5 RAM and a refreshed cooling system that should be able to handle anything that 4K gaming enthusiasts have to throw at it. Along with the boost in memory, EVGA says the 4GB GTX 960 will come equipped with its ACX 2.0+ custom cooling system. The upgrade will supposedly result in a quieter card that can be overclocked to speeds beyond the stock 1,127MHz factory rating, without melting any components when the firefights really start to pick up during intense frag sessions online and off. EVGA says the base clock will be 1,279MHz, with a maximum boost clock of 1,342MHz.
