NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 core — which faster than its predecessor as it has more shader processors, as it’s a castrated GTX 570 really.
The GeForce GTX 560 448 will certainly be a nice speed bump compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Being based off that GeForce GTX 570 means it also comes with a wider memory bus at 320-bit and yeah, more memory as 1280 MB GDDR5 will be placed on these products.
The new MSI N560GTF-448 TwinFrozr III Power Edition comes with a triple over-voltage function which supports voltage adjustment of GPU, memory & VDDCI. And the power indication hints towards a P/S Switch Function where two fan speed profiles (Performance / Silence) can be configured.
The product will get that new GPU seated into a custom PCB and will be cooled by that lovely TwinFrozr III cooler. Armed with a 210Watt TDP.
This card will eat up two PCI slots. Sitting on top of the GPU is the heatpipe based TwinFrozr III cooler which on top of that has two fans blowing air towards that heatpipe based cooler with multiple thick pipes.
Alongside the quality component selection, the custom PCB, the cooling and the PWM FAN switch, the card will also get full voltage support with AfterBurner, meaning that the GPU, memory and VDDCI may be voltage tweaked.
It comes with an extra 256MB of memory, a faster memory bus (320-bit) and uses that GTX 570/580 silicon with a couple of shader clusters disabled.
Gaming wise the 448 core might just be what the doctor ordered for the latest game titles though, it has a chunk of extra memory which Battlefield 3 really likes in MMOG environments, it has that little extra bite that Crysis 2 likes so much and as such it can be looked at as a really nice 1920×1080/1200 resolution graphics card.
MSI has done a terrific job with this card, it is very quiet, runs very cool temperatures and offers you a lot for the money as they throw in that TwinFrozr III cooler, which works out really nicely.
The MSI GTX 560 Ti Power Edition managed to keep up with and beat a GTX 570 in most of the testing while costing far less and still managing to have top notch temperatures, performance, power consumption at idle, and overclocking capability!
Overall, the GTX 560 Ti 448 cores is a great deal for its $289~$300 price range, but limited availability could be its downfall.
MSI announced a pair of Radeon HD 7970 graphics cards which feature PowerTune with Boost, yet aren't based on the HD 7970 GHz Edition chip. The company labeled these cards simply "HD 7970 Boost Edition." Among the cards MSI unveiled are a base-model (R7970 TF 3GD5 BE), and a factory-overclocked one (R7970 TF 3GD5 BE/OC). The base model features a GPU clock speed of 925 MHz, PowerTune Boost clock speed of 975 MHz, and memory speed of 5.50 GHz. The OC variant, on the o ... »
ASK Inc. Japan has added another graphics from MSI to its product page, the N650GTX-Ti Twin Frozr III OC BE. Powered by NVIDIA’s Kepler GPU, the card is equipped with 768 CUDA Cores, a 192-bit memory interface, a core clock of 1033MHz (1098MHz Boost Clock) and a 2GB of GDDR5 memory set @ 6008MHz. Not only that, the card also employs the third-generation Twin Frozr cooling system and features dual-link DVI-I, dual-link DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. N650GTX-Ti T ... »
MSI showed off its first Gaming Series branded graphics card, the N660Ti PE Gaming Series. Based on NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Ti, the card looks virtually identical to the GTX 660 Ti Power Edition, with a couple of purely cosmetic changes. The blue streak on the cooler shroud makes way for a red one, and the fan impellers bear the Gaming Series dragon-head decal. It features clock speeds identical to the OC variant, with 1019 MHz core, 1097 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz m ... »
