MSI introduces NX7800GTX Series

After the announcement of NVIDIA´s latest GPU, G70, we are witnessing the natural wave of graphics cards made by every vendor there is. The first models resemble the reference design as usual.

MSI introduced MSI NX7800GTX Series graphics cards.

We won´t be describing the architecture of GeForce 7800 GTX again, but will link you to our review.

Like other top models of this company the new leader features D.O.T. Express (Dynamic Overclocking Technology Express).

The vendor claims overclocking increases the performance for up to 10%. There are also 6 overclocking presets, including Commander, General, Colonel, Captain, Sergeant and Private. Also naturally, MSI NX7800GTX supports SLI.
