Galaxy launched one of the first few factory-overclocked, low-profile GeForce GT 740 graphics cards, the Galaxy GT 740 OC Slim 2GB. The card relies entirely on the PCI-Express 3.0 x16 bus for power, and features an aluminium fan-heatsink that, sadly, is thicker than one slot. The card offers a slight factory OC of 1058 MHz core (vs. 1006 MHz reference), while leaving the memory untouched at 5.00 GHz (GDDR5 effective). Based on the 28 nm GK107 silicon, the GT 740 offers 384 CUDA cores, 32 TMUs, 16 ROPs, and features a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. Galaxy's card offers a dual-link DVI, an HDMI 1.4a, and D-Sub. Low-profile brackets are included.
