With new TwinFrozr III cooler

During MSI's MOA (Master Overclocking Arena) 2010 finals, guys from TechSweden.org managed to get some one-on-one time with MSI's latest Lightning series addition, the MSI N480GTX Lightning card. The newest N480GTX Lightning is a beefed up GTX 480 with special PCB and the latest version of the TwinFrozr cooler.

Under the TwinFrozr III cooler, which features two 90mm fans, five heatpipes and a backplate, is the special PCB that has 17-phase VRM, four super ML Poadlizer capcitors and high-C capacitors. The card works at 750MHz for the GPU, 1500MHz for 480 CUDA cores and 4000MHz for 1.5GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 384-bit memory interface.

The rest of the features include a V-check points, DIP switches, two DVIs, HDMI, DisplayPort, and the card requires two 8-pin and one 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors to run. According to the guys at TechSweden, the card should show up in retail with a price tag set at US $550, which isn't that bad considering the features that it should offer.

We are quite sure that MSI will share more info in the upcoming days, but until then, you can check out the preview with more pictures over at TechSweden.org.
