Pricing, Availability and Final Thoughts
Coming in at $259.99 at the time of writing, the MSI GTX 760 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC hits at an awesome price point. It's only $10 more than the suggested price that NVIDIA announced when the new model launched. You can see, though, that the model is really leaps and bounds better than the reference design.
Move away from the overclocking and the gaming performance for the moment and look just at the Twin Frozr IV cooler. You can see in typical MSI fashion they've really put a wonderful product together. The cooler looks great and you can see when we overclocked as high as we did, we still managed to get a video card that operated 11c cooler than the reference card.
The new black and red color scheme also looks fantastic. MSI have put together a fan that not only looks good, but performs exceptionally well in all the key areas.
Of course overclocking is one of the highlights and you can see that the effort that MSI has put into the card helps make a real difference when it comes to the overclocking side of things. The reference card managed to push the core clock up to 1155MHz from the 1105MHz that we saw out of the reference card.
1105MHz is of course a very strong overclock from the default 980MHz. But when you combine the even higher clock we got from the MSI GTX 760 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC with the Boost clock, you can see some really awesome performance gains that equate to over 10% when compared to the overclocked reference card and gains of over 20% when compared to the reference card at its stock clocks.
MSI really came out swinging with the GTX 760 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC. Its addition to the new Gaming Series is fantastic and we're really looking forward to seeing more video cards fall into this new category in the coming months. If you're on the hunt for a new GTX 760, this is one you should be looking at for sure.
