MSI GTX 960 Gaming GPU Review

MSi’s GTX 960 Gaming 2G with Twin Frozr V and Torx fan is on the bench warmed up and ready to go. we suggest you fasten your seat belts, wear head protection and if the mood strikes an impact label on your shirt to measure GeForces. The MSI GTX 960 comes in a snazzy Red and Black and the fan hubs are imprinted with the MSI Dragon and the traditional “MSI”. Looking more like some sports car from Speed Racer than a Video card it packs all of Maxwell’s technology in a newly named chip the GM206.

Up until recently Nvidia only let two GPU’s out of the Maxwell nest, generally NVIDIA releases the Top Dog GPU and maybe shortly later a variant of the GTX X80 class.  In this case the all-powerful GTX 980 splashed on the market at between $550 to about $700 depending on how steroidal a model you want. Then later comes the GTX 970 bowing only to the GTX 980 (speaking strictly about the Maxwell GPU’s at this point) it commands a price of between $330 to just under $400, still pretty steep for most end users hanging onto their GTX 660 and below trying to maximize their upgrade dollars. Enter the Sweet Spot Strategy starting out with plain Jane GTX 960’s around $210 up to nicer well worth the bump $240 dollar models… at Bjorn3d
