I recently had the opportunity to test the graphics card MSI GeForce GTX 960 Gaming 2G, which surprised me with a polished cooling. The manufacturer has just introduced a new variant of it with double dose of video memory.
Geforce GTX 960 is based on Maxwell GM206 GPU with 1024 CUDA cores – manufacturer has given the choice to players to run it in different modes of operation, and in the most efficient (OC) frequency raised to 1241/1304 MHz. In addition, the on-board features 4 GB of GDDR5 memory, 128-bit, but now standard 7010 MHz memory frequency.
We still have to deal with black and Red color scheme and Twin Frozr V cooler, which consists of a smaller radiator heat sink with a memory chip, a larger radiator pierced by three heat pipes and two fans. Not to forgotten the card is available with backplate (traditionally with dragon logo).
Standard set of video outputs includes – DVI-I, HDMI 2.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 three and one 8-pin.
