The Packaging

 

MSI is known for using its dragon on its boxes, with the new GeForce GTX 950 Gaming 2G being no exception.

On the front of the box, we have the aforementioned dragon, and to the right, we have the model of this card. In the bottom left, we see that it has 2GB of GDDR5, supports PCIe 3.0, and is the OC edition.

On the back of the card we find out the various technologies that MSI has on the card, such as the use of Torx Fans, SU Pipe, and Zero Frozr technologies.

Inside, the card is kept nice and safe inside of this box.

 

 

Detailed Look

Starting off with the front of the card, we have the usual red and black theme from MSI which continues to impress. Even though this is the cheapest entry in the GTX 900 series from NVIDIA, MSI isn't cheaping out in the looks department.

There's no backplate in use here.

One very good thing that MSI has done with the GeForce GTX 950 Gaming 2G is continued the Maxwell tradition of display connectivity. We have 3 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI 2.0 and 1 x DVI output.

A single 6-pin PCIe power connector is required, keeping power consumption very low.
