MSI has been teasing their Twin Frozr V cooler for the past few weeks now. So it’s about time we take closer look at GTX 970 GAMING, the first card to feature TF5 cooling.

MSI’s GTX 970 is not a card for casual gamers. GTX 970 GAMING is a real monster. It has two huge 100mm propeller-blade fans accompanied by a nice black and red shroud.

GeForce GTX 970 has 1664 CUDA cores, 384 less than GTX 980. MSI’s 970 GAMING is factory-overclocked to 1140 MHz, with a boost clock at 1279 MHz. It has 4GB GDDR5 memory across 256-bit interface. This particular card has a TDP of 148W, so two power connectors, from which one is 8pin, were not really required.

Unlike reference card, MSI’s model has only a ‘default’ set of display connectors: DVI-I, DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort. GeForce GTX 970 will launch on Friday, the price remains unknown.
