Looking at the card the overall design is very similar to what we've seen before, since the Twin Frozr III cooler is being used. There is a dual fan setup with a large heatsink behind them. You can see across the top and bottom some heatpipes which are going to help move the heat away from the core. One of the nicer features of the cooler is the fact that we're dealing with a metal shroud instead of a plastic one which just makes the card not only look better, but feel more solid as well.
Taking a quick look around you can see just what we'd expect with a single 6-pin PCIe power connector at the back and a single SLI bridge at the front, in the event you want to run two of these cards together.
When it comes to the connectivity side of things we've got two Dual-Link DVI connectors in the form of DVI-D and DVI-I. We've also got a HDMI port along with a DisplayPort connector.
Out of the box a reference GTX 650 Ti Boost comes with a 980MHz core clock that jumps to 1033MHz via Boost, and the 2GB of GDDR5 comes in at 6008MHz QDR. Looking below you can see out of the box this video card comes in at 1033MHz which is pushed to 1098MHz via Boost. As for the 2GB of GDDR5, MSI decided to leave that alone.
As we mentioned before we decided to overclock the card today and you can see above that we managed to push the core up to 1140MHz, which gives us a boost clock of 1205MHz - this can be seen on the far right. As for the memory, that's also been bumped to a strong 6880MHz QDR.
