MSI GTX 960 Gaming 2G Graphics Card Review

Temperatures
So how does Twin Frozr V cool do? We will be running it through our set of temperature tests. First is our idle test, which is taken from the Windows desktop.

Our first load test is a loop of Heaven Demo 4.0 for 30 minutes. This is a good representation of typical gaming conditions.

Our final test is Furmark’s 15 minute 1920 x 1080 benchmark. This puts the maximum load on the graphics card. Although most users would never put their cards under this much stress we like to include it in our tests.

Wow! You can see the Twin Frozr V has been improved quite a bit!

Power Consumption
Power consumption for a system is of course very important. To measure power consumption I used a killawatt meter. The idle test is taken on the Windows 7 desktop. The first load test was taken running a loop of Heaven benchmark for 30 minutes and the second load test was running Furmark’s 15 minute 1920 x 1080 benchmark. Keep in mind the wattage value is for the full system not just the graphics card.

As you can see the card the most efficient that we have tested to date!
