MSI Introduces N260GTX Lightning Twin Frozr, an AirForce Panel and 10 Phase Power PWM
Today, MSI released its custom-designed GeForce GTX 260 graphics card: MSI N260GTX Lightning made of 'Military Class' parts. With its 1792MB memory and Twin Frozr thermal design, MSI N260GTX Lightning is claimed to be the most unique GeForce GTX260 on the market.
Furthermore, this graphics card has overclocking features like V-Check points to measure the voltage and MSI exclusive "AirForce Panel" only in the limited Black Edition.
Military Class is the new standard for top-quality graphics cards. It implies use of ultra long lifespan solid cap which is 2.5x times of lifespan of normal solid cap and ultra high stability Hi-C Cap that can withstand 20% higher temperature.
N260GTX Lightning is MSI's first graphics card with 10 Phase PWM for a maximum overclocking performance. The GPU needs more power than a CPU, so that is why 8 phases are reserved for the GPU and 2 phases for the memory, improving stability.
This card's memory is doubled to 1792MB GDDR3 and reaches, in combination with the original processor, a frequency ratio of 680/2100 MHz.
AirForce Panel, the exclusive bundled device, uses the touch panel to provide the complete voltage and clock settings. Just simply slide the panel to overclock the card. The AirForce panel features different profiles for office work, gaming, etc so you can easily jump to the right VGA cards settings.
In addition, MSI N260GTX Lightning is equipped with V-Check points for measuring the voltage during overclocking activities. You can simply use the multi-meter to detect the core and memory voltages.
MSI's N260GTX Lightning has an intelligent thermal design with dual fans called "Twin Frozr". The card produces ultra-low noise under regular load and dynamically adjusts the fan speed during intensive game play and other 3D-operations. Moreover, the thermal design provides a great cooling efficiency to reach the best overclocking performance.
There are 2 SKU's of the N260GTX Lightning. The AirForce panel is only included in the N260GTX Lightning Black Edition which comes with a special weapon-style packing.
* The limited black edition is shipped with factory default frequencies of 650/2000 MHz. The mentioned figures were reached using the AirForce panel with game settings set at the highest level.
