The Latest Gaming Technologies
Pascal is built to meet the demands of next generation displays, including VR, ultra-high-resolution, and multiple monitors. It features NVIDIA GameWorks™ technologies for extremely smooth gameplay and cinematic experiences. Plus, it includes revolutionary new 360-degree image capture.

Performance
Pascal-powered graphics cards give you superior performance and power efficiency, built using ultra-fast FinFET and supporting DirectX™ 12 features to deliver the fastest, smoothest, most power-efficient gaming experiences.

TORX 2.0 FAN
Teamwork For Greater Strength
Just like in games, the exclusive MSI TORX 2.0 Fan technology uses the power of teamwork to allow the TWIN FROZR VI to achieve new levels of cool.

TORX 2.0 Fan design generates 22% more air pressure for supremely silent performance in the heat of battle.

Zero Frozr-Stay Undetected
First introduced in 2008 by MSI, ZeroFrozr technology has made its mark and is now the industry standard among graphics cards. It eliminates fan noise by stopping the fans in low-load situations. This means you can focus on gaming without the noise of spinning fans.

Catch The Vibe With Cool LED Effects
Each LED can be controlled individually by choosing any of the animation effects availiable in the MSI Gaming App, ranging from responding to your game sounds or music to steady light, breathing and flashing. Of course, you can also turn them off.

Heatsink
Lurking under the cover of the GAMING graphics card is an engineering masterpiece designed to keep the graphics card cool. Every tiny detail of the intricate heatsink plays an essential part in providing a cool & quiet gaming experience.

Backplate
A powerful graphics card needs a strong build to harness its performance. MSI GAMING X graphics cards are fitted with a solid metal back plate to make it extra tough. The matte black finish completes the TWIN FROZR VI design to perfection.

Airflow Control Technology
Using advanced aerodynamics, Airflow Control Technology directs more air directly onto the TWIN FROZR VI heat pipes. The special deflectors on the heat sink enlarge the surface area, which means lower temperatures and better gaming.

The Future Of Gaming

Nvidia G-Sync
The smoothest, fastest and most exciting gaming experience ever by eliminating screen tearing, display shutter and input lag.

4K UHD
Ultra-high resolution (UHD) delivers 4x the resolution of 1080p content, enabling much sharper and crisper images with delicate details during gaming.

Customer Reviews

Great Price, Card and Service from RARU

Reviewed by on

At R5504, it's the best price I could find in SA for this card with stock available.

The card is fantastic, well made, performs great for me at 1080p and is cool and quite. Haven't gone above 65 degrees. One thing to note is the size of this card, it is HUGE! I had to make some minor case mods (basically bent the HDD cage a bit) to get it to fit. So measure out the dimensions in your case first. But the build quality is great, the backing plates make it look great and the lighting is a cool extra. Note that the lights around the fans are red only. My lighting scheme is white, so I turned them off in MSI gaming app. Mine boosts to 1968MHz in the gaming mode. Haven't tried to OC. Probably one of the best cards right now for 1080p, I play Fallout 4 at absolute max and it runs beautifully.

The service from RARU was fantastic, I ordered on Wednesday morning last week and it arrived Friday morning even though I am in a "rural" area in KZN! Their anticipated delivery time was around 2 weeks so I was amazed!

Very good card for what you pay.

There isn't a doubt that if you want the best GFX performance right now you'd get a GTX 1080. But at a third of the price the 1060 is fully capable of running games beautifully and smoothly. I have a good 45+ FPS in Overwatch with all graphics settings on Ultra.

Though my reason for getting the card was for VR games, and it does quite the stellar job with them. Definitely the best cost for performance card on the market right now.
