With 2GB of vRAM and a Maxwell GPU underneath an Armor 2X thermal design, the MSI GeForce GTX 950 Overclocked Graphics Card can render high-resolution graphics while keeping cool and quiet. The GTX 950 chipset's vRAM is coupled with 768 CUDA cores running at a base clock speed of 1076 MHz with a 128-bit interface. Using the included utility the GPU can be boosted and overclocked to 1253 MHz for more intense gaming sequences or rendering tasks.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, which are DVI, HDMI, and DisplayPort. Using either the HDMI or DisplayPort outputs, 4K resolutions up to 4096 x 2160 with 60Hz refresh rates can be achieved. The GTX 950 can support multiple displays using NVIDIA's Surround feature for an immersive gaming experience.
Not only for driving displays, this card features NVIDIA's Maxwell microprocessing architecture. Graphics intensive programs can utilize the Maxwell architecture's parallel configuration of the 768 CUDA cores to speed up render times and other tasks that benefit from parallel processing. Maxwell architecture also allows the card to run efficiently and quietly, even under a full processing load.
This GTX 950 features an Armor 2X thermal design, which delivers more airflow than a traditional single fan setup. The large heat sink provides improved heat dissipation. The propeller blade technology of the dual fans produces 20% more airflow than traditional fans as well as less noise.
