MSI Launches N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II card

MSI has unveiled a new member for its Twin Forzr II family, one that is based on the just announced Nvidia Geforce GTX 560 Ti GPU.

The card uses two fans as well as heat pipes to keep the GPU and other components as cool as possible, up to 20 degrees less than reference card cooling.

The new model also includes a number of tweaks by MSI, including software-based GPU over voltage which allows the card to be overclocked even more.

In addition, MSI said that there will be a Golden Edition of the card, one which is likely to be a factory-overclocked card with even more overclocking capabilities.

As expected, it does support resolutions of up to 2560x1600 pixels, 3D blu-ray movies, generic 3D content as well as Nvidia's own PhysX, SLI and 3D Vision surround.

Both cards will use Military Class II components which MSI says will prolong the card's life expectancy and improve its robustness.

Pricing and availability for both have yet to be confirmed but the stock card should go on sale for around £210.
