Asus and MSI have both announced a GeForce GTX 960 video card that packs 4GB of vram. The cards are both overclocked and offer three displayport connections. Both video cards are also equipped with two fans for cooling.

Asus has placed 4GB of vram on the GeForce GTX 960 Strix. The gddr5 memory speed is 7010MHz. The memory is accessed via a 128-bit-wide data bus. The GPU on the video card is clocked at 1291MHz with a boost of 1317MHz. That is higher than the reference speeds of 1126 and 1178MHz respectively that Nvidia uses.

To keep the card cool, Asus opts for its so-called DirectCU II Strix cooling system, in which two fans cool an aluminum heatsink. The card offers three displayport 1.2 connections, an HDMI 2.0 output and a dual-link DVI port. Asus has not yet released pricing.

The GTX 960 Gaming 4G from MSI also contains 4GB gddr5 memory, with the effective memory speed again being 7010MHz. The GPU is clocked at 1241MHz, with a boost speed of 1304MHz. A TwinFrozr cooler with two fans should keep the GPU sufficiently cool. MSI has also not yet provided pricing information.
