Introduction and Technical Specifications

MSI GTX980 Gaming Review

Introduction

The GTX980 has been around for long enough now that we've seen a variety of models from various manufacturers. All of the main partners have got their cards available, and today we're taking a look at MSI's own Gaming range model, the MSI GTX980 Gaming 4G. 

Regular readers will know that the MSI Gaming range has been consistently brilliant since its inception a couple of years ago, and nearly everything we've tested has been fantastic.

With the nVidia Maxwell GPU core beating at the heart of this, and the incredible performance of the GTX980 well known, we're very much looking forward to discovering how the Gaming fares.

Technical Specifications

As is often the case with a graphics card the specifications table doesn't really give us any insight beyond the core speeds. The MSI Gaming is somewhat cautious in its overclocking, just up to 1317MHz at full chat. Hopefully there is plenty to be squeezed out, and we know how good GPU Boost is at doing so.

We are paying an arm & leg for these GPU at least they could put a back plate on or even do what EVGA does sell them as a add onQuote

It all depends on silicon lottery.

I have a reference 980 that can do 1560/2100 which is far higher than the EVGA SC.Quote
