Today is GTS 250 day, and MSI is one of the first vendors to show off a non-reference GTS 250 card at Cebit.
The GTS 250 is a rebranded and slightly improved 9800 GTX+ card, it features the same GPU, but ships with faster memory and has slightly lower power consumption. MSI's N250GTS-2D1G-OC is clocked at 760MHz, 22MHz over the reference clock, and it features a non-reference cooler.
The GDDR3 memory on MSI's card runs at 2300MHz, 100MHz over the reference clock, and MSI will offer the card with 512MB and 1024MB of memory.
MSI claims the card runs at up to 20 percent lower temperature thanks to its non-reference cooler with four 6mm heatpipes and the quiet Seaweed Blade Fan.
