The heatpipes are what MSI is staking their reputation with. This means a few more dies per wafer, but mm squared is still awfully large. Knox, but pretty close. A quarter century tour; a Space Marine’s job is never done. When I was writing at my previous site, I rarely had the chance to get my hands on the latest and greatest video cards.

The GTX is not without flaws though. Priced as the card is supetpipe, I think it is a fair deal considering what else is out there. The GTb is the 55 nm shrunk version of the GT, and the changes to the design are minimal as compared to the older 65 nm version.

While it is big, it did not skimp on the features or the performance. Logitech’s intelligent solution to their smart vtx restores Harmony.

My case is a showpiece with glass and lots of lights, so this is more an esthetic issue for me. During certain applications the fan spins up so it is the loudest thing on the test bench and in the test lab. As such the bundle is fairly mundane.

It had few problems with the majority of applications at x with varying amounts of AA thrown in. It’s not that bad, a black PCB would of improved it’s looks a bit, as would a black rear IO plate and red dvi sockest But the real question will be how well it performs.

At max the GTX pulls around watts. Posted by Pob – Sat 28 Mar The heatpipes are what MSI is staking their reputation with. The biggest differences are those brought about by the 55 nm process.

Without all the plastic cladding, the NGTX is slightly smaller in size. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone.

Logitech’s intelligent solution to their smart home restores Harmony. Not a whole lot of definition here for the card, especially with the layers of bags around it!

This is a half-node shrink from 65 nm, but TSMC was able to include a few new material advances at that node which have helped in overall power consumption. No word on pricing yet, but we expect availability soon, and we’d be surprised not to see SuperPipe implemented on other MSI cards in the near future, too. While this has not made the folks at MSI very happy about how late the review is, know very well that the card has not been tested for a week and then thrown in a box to lie around.

Is Topre Realforce the Realthing?


Even if it’s used, I would be interested. Personally i think its fugly. Windows Vista 64 Ultimate was used, but I am certain that by the time the next vid card review rolls around I will be using Win7. The build quality is excellent, the cooler design works just as it is supposed to, and the NVIDIA GTX is a very good chip that provides a very good gaming and entertainment experience.

Logitech’s intelligent solution to their smart home restores Harmony. In fact, it is likely the most tangible of upgrades, as the results of upgrading a video card can be seen with smoother frame rates and increases in resolution and levels of AA in our favorite supsrpipe applications.

I decided to do something a little different. This turned out to be not a quiet card in these circumstances.

The power requirements have gone down quite a bit from the GTX What we can walk away with at the end of the review is that MSI has produced a pretty tremendous card. Let us hope that these things will not happen for a variety of reasons. It also really raised the bar on GPGPU performance, as it turned out to be much more flexible than its previous parts, or parts from its main competitor. The big question that we all will be asking in a mwi weeks is how this card will compete with the upcoming DX 11 products from AMD?

Even if it’s used, I would be interested. This question is for testing whether you are a human visitor superpupe to prevent automated ytx submissions.
