MSI officially launches new Twin Frozr II cards
GTX 465 and GTX 470
MSI has finally announced its custom cooled GF100 based cards, the N470GTX Twin Frozr II, N465GTX Twin Frozr II and N465GTX Twin Frozr II Golden Edition cards.
All of the newely announced cards feature the same military class components and the same Twin Frozr II cooler with two 80mm fans and five heatpipes. The only difference between the N465GTX Twin Frozr II and the N465GTX Twin Frozr II Golden Edition is actually in those heatpipes, as the Golden Edition uses all-copper design, while the other two are limited to aluminium.
According to MSI, the Twin Frozr II cooler is able to reduce the temperatures by 16 degrees under full load and more importantly, lower the noise output by 21.5dBA, all compared to the reference cooler.
The N470GTX Twin Frozr feature 448 CUDA cores and works at 607MHz for the GPU, 1215MHz for shaders and 3348MHz for 1280MB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 320-bit memory interface. Both of the announced N465GTX Twin Frozr II cards feature 352 CUDA cores and work at 607MHz for the GPU, 1215MHz for shaders and 3206MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface.
Unfortunately, neither one of these cards is yet available or even listed but we guess that they will show up eventually.
