Last month, we got a chance to look at the new GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB from NVIDIA and found ourselves really impressed with what the company was offering.
When you talk about dollar for dollar and FPS for FPS, the model just screams value against its main competitor, the similarly priced AMD Radeon R7 260X 2GB. While impressed with the performance of the card from an FPS stand point, we saw some room for improvement.
Out of the box, the cooler on the reference card was nothing to get excited about. If anything, it was something to be disappointed in. Of course, we knew that this was only going to be temporary and when we got our hand on retail versions of the card, this small issue would be fixed.
The other thing is we've always got room for improvement when it comes to stock clocks. Today, the MSI card we're looking at is, of course, overclocked out of the box as the "OC" label would suggest.
Outside of that, there's really not much else for us to say. We're doing exactly what we wanted today: getting the chance to look at a retail version of the new GTX 750 Ti 2GB. Let's see what MSI is able to bring to the party with its GTX 750 Ti 2GB Twin Frozr Gaming OC offering.
Taking a look at the box, we really don't see anything out of the ordinary with the overall design. The Gaming series has been around for a while now, and the black and red color scheme looks great. We can see the model clearly on the front, and, in the corner, you can see that we're dealing with an OC model as we mentioned in the introduction.
Turning the box over, you can see some of the main features in more detail, including support for the Gaming APP, which brings easy overclocking via three modes. Along with that, you can see Military Class 4 support, which brings Hi-c and Solid Capacitors along with the Twin Frozr IV cooler, which we've always been a fan of. We're looking forward to seeing how it performs on the new Maxwell chip.
Moving inside the package, you can see there's not a whole lot going on besides the standard User Guide and CD being present. Along with that, we've also got another piece of paper that explains the Hybrid BIOS feature that is included on the card. We'll take a closer look at that in just a moment when we move to the card.
