MSIN760 TF 2GD5/OC Features
The first feature on the list for the MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC is the included Gaming App. The Gaming App is included for easy tuning of the GTX 760 video card to get the most out of your games. The GTX 760 does a good job of keeping up with nearly any game anyway, but the Gaming App gives you even more versatility. The Gaming App uses three different modes, OC Mode, Gaming Mode, and Silent Mode. OC Mode lets you tune the core clock and the fan speed. Gaming Mode gives you a stable overclock for improved gaming. Silent Mode strives to give the optimal performance with the lowest amount of fan noise. OC Mode gave me an extremely stable overclock at 1215MHz.
Next up is the Military Class 4 components. This is a staple of MSI for their gaming and enthusiast series of components, and the N760 TF 2GD5/OC is no different. The Military Class 4 components are certified according to MIL-STD-810G and are intended to withstand the brutal conditions that gamers and overclockers put their components through. The Military Class 4 components include Hi-C CAP capacitors made from rare earth metals. These capacitors are highly conductive and are supposed to offer more stable overclocks. Solid CAP capacitors are also part of the Military Class 4 components. Solid capacitors are used throughout the computer hardware industry to provide longer life, lower temps and ESR, and higher efficiency.
Another feature that MSI includes with the N760 TF 2GD5/OCs the Predator tool. The Predator tool is a neat utility that gives you the ability to take screen or video captures during your gaming session. Predator is embedded within MSI’s Afterburner program. Afterburner is a great tool for manually overclocking your MSI, or any, video card. MSI also includes a program called Kombustor that hyper-stresses your video card so that you can test the thermal levels and the stability of your overclock.
Finishing off the N760 TF 2GD5/OC specific features, let’s take a look at the IO. MSI stuck to a pretty normal IO here, but this is one place that you might actually see differences between the manufacturers. Then again, it seems that this layout has become the standard now. The MSI N760 TF 2GD5/OC has two Dual-Link DVI connectors, a full-sized HDMI, and a DisplayPort 2.1 input. With this video card, you could run a four monitor setup. Both DVI ports and the HDMI port can all be used simultaneously, as well as the DisplayPort.
