MSI GTX 760 OC Twin Frozr Gaming review - Page 1

Submitted by Robbie Pyckhout on Sat, 04/05/2014 - 15:25

Introduction

Nvidia's GTX 760 features the same architecture like the GTX 670, 660 Ti and GTX 770. In terms of performance, the GTX 760 should perform in between the GTX 670 and the GTX 660 Ti. They claim it to be the best valuable option for gaming at a resolution of 1080p/1200p. No current available game should be able to get this card on his knies using this resolution. To be sure of that, MSI offers his GTX 760 Gaming card factory overclocked and with the award-winning Twin Frozr design. In addition to that, the card offers full potential for even more overclocking with the 6 pin + 8 pin connector. With a retail price of around 210 euros, the MSI GTX 760 OC offers a far more valuable option than the older GTX 670.

Featuring several premium options, like the Hi-c and Solid CAPs, MSI promises the user a longer lifetime of the card. Also the Twin Frozr IV advanced thermal design should give you a longer guaranteed life of the GTX 760. The Twin Frozr is able to reach high clock speeds without switching to a triple fan design, like other companies are forced into. Another feature of the card is the gaming app to easily overclock the card even more, or to set it up to perform even more silent.

Now, let's have a look at the packaging:

As you can see on the pictures, the package includes these things: 

  • MSI GTX 760 OC Gaming
  • 6-pin to 8-pin PCI-Express adapter
  • Twin Molex to 6-pin power adapter
  • Driver installation CD
  • User guide
  • DVI adapter

Product Showcase

The new cooler offers two fans to pump fresh, life-bringing cool air onto the heatsinks, and features a nice black/red colored shroud design. Of course, the card's looks have no impact on its real-world performance numbers, as it's the cooling and acoustic levels that matter when addressing the hardware's design. Anyway, MSI also did a great job on the looks of the cooler. We'll see how it performs though.

As you can see on the pictures, MSI's design looks very neat, cool and quality just springs to mind.
