The Card

 

Having a look at the GTX, we see there really isn't anything we haven't seen before. As always the case is covered with a shroud that takes up the whole card from left to right and top to bottom.

MSI has of course added its own sticker to the cooler which sees the brand and model on the left side of the shroud. On the right side we see the fan which pushes air across the two cores and out the back of the card.

Moving to the back of the card, we can see two power connectors; one is a 6-pin that sits on one PCB while the other an 8-pin connector which sits on the other PCB that holds another GPU. Closer to the front we have a SLI connector; unlike other NVIDIA cards we only have one and this is due to the fact that we can only have two of these cards together, meaning a second connector isn't needed.

In the I/O department we're split into two sections; one section has two Dual-Link DVI connectors while the other consists of a number of vents that let the hot air escape along with a HDMI connector that some people may find useful.

 

Specifications

 

As mentioned previously, the MSI GTX 295 carries with it the stock clocks that we've become accustomed to seeing. The core is 576MHz, the shader clock 1242MHz and the memory comes in at a nice 1998MHz DDR.
