A surprisingly long card considering it's mid-range placing. I'd not expected to see a three fan cooler fitted to these - I wonder how much impact that'll have on temps, noise and potential overclocks?

Yeah, that is a very very big card for a mid-range GPU...

Wonder if anyone's going to do a 170mm version again like they did with the 670/760/970.

This one seems short, and I'm sure the reference cards (I think this one is reference design actually) will be short too

As for this card, I think it looks ace. I bet the Windforce cooler will have positive results on performance and overclocking-potential as well!

My 270x is also a midrange card with the massive 3 fan gigbyte cooler, and it works wonders. Hovers around ~70 degrees in games with ~35% fan speed, utterly silent.

The 960 with it's low power consumption and improved cooler should be even better

It's actually the other way around

The video outputs on Gigabyte's G1 Gaming cards are amazing. The GTX 980 and 970 G1 Gaming have the same ports on them.
