GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 960 MSI Gaming 4GB Edition is a special edition of NVIDIA's Performance GeForce GTX 960 2GB, created by MSI.


Overclock: Central Unit
The Central Unit now runs at 1241MHz, instead of 1127MHz and goes up to 1304MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Overclock: Memory Clock
The Operating Memory Clock while the Frame Buffer was doubled to 4GB - a gimmick in most situations, as the graphics card doesn't prove to be powerful enough to run under circumstances in which 4GB are needed.


Cooling Solution
The reference NVIDIA Single-Fan Cooling System has been replaced by MSI's Dual Fan Twin Frozr V Cooling Solution. This means the card runs cooler under load.
