It looks like we are just days away from meeting the new GeForce GTX 900 series from NVIDIA, with a very detailed look at MSI's offering of the GTX 970 GAMING card, which features the company's TwinFrozr V cooler.
MSI's GTX 970 GAMING features TwinFrozr V, which includes two 100mm propeller-blade fans, with a beautiful black-and-red design. The GeForce GTX 970 itself features 1664 CUDA cores, with MSI's factory-overclocked 1140MHz and Boost clock of 1279MHz. 4GB of RAM is on the card with a 256-bit memory bus, with a TDP of just 148W. MSI requires one 8-pin and one 6-pin, which is up from the two 6-pin PCIe power connector requirements of the reference GeForce GTX 970.
One of the weird things that MSI has done to its GTX 970 GAMING card, is remove some of the DisplayPort outputs that the reference GTX 970 sports. The reference GTX 970 and GTX 980 GPUs include three DisplayPort outputs, but the MSI GTX 970 GAMING has just one DisplayPort, one HDMI and two DVI ports.
