MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G review – best buy SLI option

Even if NVIDIA launched their new generation graphics cards, the previous series is still kicking, especially that the new products are not in store until 24th of May. So I have the pleasure to write the review for MSI GTX 970 Gaming 4G which also includes the SLI performance, as MSI was kind enough to send me 2 pieces. It will be nice to compare the SLI with MSI GTX 980 Ti Gaming 6G, both in terms of performance and price.

As you can see there is also an MSI branded SLI bridge that looks way better than the simple, usual one.

MSI card comes factory overclocked and uses 2x 8-pin power connectors, so I’d say some more overclocking is quite possible.
