MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G Review


NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture has proven time and again that it is capable of delivering all the performance of Kepler, but in a much more energy efficient manner. After looking at both a reference GTX 980 and MSI's own GTX 980 Gaming 4G, the fact is...

MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming 4G Graphics Card Review


We have taken a look to one of a gamers' dream graphics card based on new Nvidia Maxwell chip. And it's unbelievable, but we cannot find any drawbacks in MSI GeForce GTX 970 Gaming. And now we will try to convince you of its advantages.

The MSI GeForce GTX 780 Gaming delivers unprecedented performance for its class. It is much faster than the previous-generation GeForce GTX 770 it has come to replace and is available at a lower initial recommended price. The impressive overclocking...

MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G Video Card Review


The MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G video card is making the GeForce GTX 780 and AMD Radeon R9 290 obsolete. This $349 video card puts up a fight and punches in a win at this price. The overclock alone is somewhat staggering. If you are about to spend...

Standard pricing on GeForce GTX 970 video cards is $329, this is a perfect price for GeForce GTX 970. As we mentioned it kicks many cards to the curb, the GeForce GTX 770 and GeForce GTX 780 are going away. The GTX 970 pushes the AMD Radeon R9 280X and...

MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4 GB Twin Frozr V “Maxwell” Graphics Card Review


NVIDIA's Maxwell based GeForce GTX 970 Gaming revolutionzes the GPU industry once again with its amazing architecture design, a ton of features, massive performance output, superb energy efficiency and a custom design which the masses would like to get...

With Maxwell, NVIDIA has entered a new era of GPUs. While Maxwell currently is built off a 28nm process node, it takes efficiency to such heights that I think there’s little reason to consider that 20nm will be much better than what Maxwell is at the...

MSI GTX 970 GAMING 4G Review


The third of our NVIDIA GTX 970 reviews see's MSI's GAMING 4G graphics card complete with 4GB of GDDR5, Twin Frozr 5 cooling and overclocked from the factory.

Very cool ; Very quiet ; Good looking ; Excellent overclocking headroom

Slightly more expensive than a R9-290X ; Slightly slower than a R9-290X

It would be easy to position this card prior to testing simply because of the clockspeed which places this card between MSI's closest competitors. There is however more to this card than initially meets the eye.

one of the prettiest looking graphics cards we have seen.

could have been clocked much higher out of the box without compromising stability under load.

Kitguru says: The MSI GTX970 Gaming 4G is a looker. They say beauty is only skin deep, but this overclocked GTX970 has bags of performance and massive potential for overclocking well past the ‘out of box speeds’. Right now AMD have nothing to come close.

While my motherboard experience with MSI hasn't been the best, I am very pleased with the graphics card.

Very reliable card. Stays cool and quiet on 1080p/60 FPS in any game on high settings and I have never had any problems with it. The driver support is unmatched; GeForce Experience Beta is absolutely amazing.

Love the hardware, hate the software.


It was easy to install, came with the necessary adapters. I was upgrading from a 7950, so the visuals are top notch. Can't complain about the hardware.

The software is buggy or something. I wanted to use Shadowplay to capture my gaming, instead of fraps. I also like to take screenshots in game. Something I used Steam for my steam games, and fraps for my non-steam games. Was surprised to see that...
