For improved graphics rendering, MSI's GTX 960 Overclocked Graphics Card features a GPU core overclocked to 1178 MHz and boostable to 1241 MHz. To back that up, the GPU is supported by 2GB of GDDR5 vRAM clocked at 7010 MHz (effective). The GPU itself contains 1024 CUDA cores arranged using NVIDIA's Maxwell architecture. The Maxwell architecture allows the GPU to operate using less power and generates less heat than the previous generation Kepler architecture. To keep the card cool, the MSI GTX 970 chipset lies underneath an Armor 2X cooler. This cooler uses two large fans to whisk away hot air from the heatsink and lower the GPU's internal temperature.

Video outputs include three DisplayPort outputs in addition to an HDMI output and a DVI-I Dual Link output. The GTX 960 can support multiple displays using NVIDIA's Surround feature for an immersive gaming experience. Surround allows you to view games on up to three 2K (2048 x 1080) displays and also allows you to utilize one more 2K monitor for auxiliary tasks.

Armor 2X Cooler
Propeller Blade Technology: Produces more airflow than a traditional single-fan design with reduced noise.

Airflow Control Technology: Uses enlarged heat pipes and increases the heat-sink area to improve cooling efficiency.
NVIDIA GPU Boost 2.0
Maximizes clock speeds based on workload. Also allows control over temperature, fan speed, extra over-voltage headroom, and optimizations for water-cooling solutions.
NVIDIA CUDA Technology
Take advantage of the GPU's processor cores to accelerate demanding tasks such as video transcoding, physics simulation, and ray tracing. Utilizing GPU processors for these tasks results in performance improvements over traditional CPUs. The GTX 960 supports DirectX 12, OpenCL, and OpenGL 4.4 allowing compatible software to benefit from GPU acceleration, taking much of the processing workload off of the CPU.
