MSI is the latest brand in our non-stop coverage of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti cards, with MSI's GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G. MSI has just two cards in its GTX 980 Ti offerings, this card and the GTX 980 Ti 6GD5 V1, which is a slightly modified reference card.
The GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G on the other hand features MSI's impressive Twin Frozr V cooling technology, and has an overclocked GM200 GPU, amongst other things. MSI has always impressed us with their offerings, with our most recent review on the MSI GeForce GTX 980 Gaming 4G leaving us more than impressed. But can MSI do it again with the GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G? The answer is yes, yes they can.
MSI has used its Twin Frozr V cooling technology, with the GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G being a dual-slot card. This is a great way to start the review off, as it means MSI's card can be used in 3- and 4-way SLI setups for the serious enthusiast and multi-monitor gamers out there.
When it comes to specifications, MSI has veered off of the reference design considerably. Not only do we have a much improved cooler, but the Core Clock has been increased from 1000MHz to 1178MHz (in MSI's 'OC Mode'), with the Boost Clock at 1279MHz, versus the 1075MHz on the reference design. There are two other modes to use, with 'Gaming Mode' seeing the Base Clock at 1140MHz and Boost at 1228MHz.
Finally, the 'Silent Mode' has MSI using the same clocks as the reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 Ti.
