MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G Review

MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G is a fantastic video card which is making obsolete AMD Radeon R9 290 and GeForce GTX 780. Over-clock is rather staggering for this gaming facility which comes at cost-friendly pricing, compared to other versions.



The design goals of NVDIA for GeForce GTX 970 appear to be quite similar to those of GeForce GTX 980. It is designed to go well with 1600p gaming at maximum settings of graphics along with high AA levels. GTX 970 has 1664 CUDA cores together with 13 SM units. The memory at 7GHz comprises of 4GB GDDR5 on 256-bit bus. While the base clock operates at 1050MHz, boost clock functions at 1178MHz. This video card still provides 64 ROPs, yet reduced 104 texture units.



Another major difference in-between GTX 980 and GTX 970 from GeForce arises in terms of power delivery. For the 980, power gets sent to GPU and is balanced across all its three sources. Over-clocking GTX 980 nonetheless triggers lack of balance in delivery of power, drawing more power from some sources compared to others and maxing out input of power. This application steers power across inputs in such manner that if one source of power maxes out, the board is able to draw in more power from others, making up the difference. It is available only on GTX 980 and not GTX 970.



MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G has Twin Frozr V cooling system, which is a new functionality from MSI, along with much higher over-clock potential. The cooler features fan control technology which disables both fans under 60c, enabling the video card to remain silent at low-end or idle gaming. The fans slowly get activated once temperature gets to 60c, ramping up as required. In essence, Twin Frozr V boasts being smaller compared to Twin Frozr IV, yet having stronger fans, while also generating less noise and embracing new heat-pipe design. MSI presents this card over-clocked at factory to 1140MHz Core base clock and 1279MHz boost clock.



Fans utilized have been branded by MSI as “Torx Fans”, providing brilliant airflow with new “dispersion blade” design. The dispersion fan is meant to significantly cut down on noise. Temperatures get reduced while operating at the maximum fan speed, in comparison to Twin Frozr IV. Design utilized by the heat-pipe, known as SuperSU architecture, allows heat pipes of regular size and SuperPipes to function in more effective manner.



This video card offers support for DisplayPort, HDMI 2.0 and possesses 2 dual-link DVI ports. This video card uniquely has 6-pin and 8-pin power connector, which add to power ability during over-clocking. It exceeds specification of two power connectors with 6 pins on reference design. The MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G is totally customized for GTX 970 GPU and by length measures 10.5 inches. The power connectors appear to have been designed quite well by MSI, with clip lying on backside. This offers convenience when disconnecting power, as it excludes having to squeeze fingers in-between heat-sink in order to achieve this function.

    Improved cooling, user-friendly power disconnection, quiet operations
