MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC
When the behemoth Nvidia GTX 580 launched, we found it to be a very impressive card, having corrected the power, heat, and noise problems that plagued its GTX 480 predecessor. Then not long ago came the GTX 570, lowering the performance and price a notch while managing to hold off AMD’s flagship 6970. And now Nvidia is looking to continue their success with today’s launch of the GTX 560 Ti, bringing performance to the masses.
Beyond the reference design card, some manufacturers are taking what appears to already be an impressive product and pushing things further, with improved power distribution, custom heatsinks for lower temperatures, factory overclocked settings, and even voltage tweaking capabilities for enthusiasts who want to extract the most our of their graphics card. MSI is bringing these with the release of their GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC.
Featuring a sleek custom heatsink design, beefy power components, and a strong factory overclock, this MSI card appears to have its sights set on the Radeon 6950. At a price of $260, the Frozr II OC doesn’t cost much more than the reference Nvidia card, but it comes with a boatload of more features, not to mention impressive overclocking headroom.
So let’s jump in and take a closer look at the MSI GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II OC and find out just how fast it is.
