MSI Twin Frozr II OC GTX 560 Ti listed in Europe

Written by Slobodan Simic

Listed at €280,33
One of the forum users over at Xtremesystems stumbled upon an early listing of the upcoming MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II OC card that will feature MSI's custom cooler and a factory overclock.

The card is currently listed at €280,33 but bear in mind that we are still talking about early listings and that the card might be cheaper in some retail/e-tail shops. It appearently works at 880MHz for the GF114 GPU. The GTX 560 Ti stock clock should be 823MHz. It comes with 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4200MHz and paired up with a 256-bit memory interface. The maximal TDP is rated at 180 Watt.

We are yet to see the reference card but it appears that the card is a great overclocker and that most, if not all, partners will come up with custom cooled, factory overclocked GTX 560 Ti cards.

You can check out the original forum post here and the card can be found listed here.

Twin Frozr II, excellent cooler no question about it...i guess MSI strategy is to not try to fix something that isn't broken since they haven't changed the design from release.

Frankly if i could afford it i would only buy custom cooled cards with Twin Frozr II for nvidia cards and Vapor-X for AMD cards.

Sweet card with a quality cooler, but keep in mind that these GTX 560 are going to be wicked units for the price no matter what vendor you buy them from, SLI them and your guaranteed an awesome rig.

How are you getting excited about mid-range cards that cost nearly €300!

You could buy two 460's for that price which would be massively faster than this new card.

its a non-reference card its understandable that its gonna be a little expensive compare to its reference counterpart.

that and I doubt the Ti is the only version of the 560 were gonna see.

yes, non-reference cards carry a 'slight' premium over standard cards but factoring this cost in the GTX560 is still almost double the price of the card it's replacing.

It just really annoys me when a company replaces products with something that is yes faster but alot more expensive too. And then fanboys start getting all excited over a product that for the money you could get better performance from the last generation. Cards should be getting a better performance per £/$/€ not worse!

For that price in USD I can buy a new quad core and two WD caviar 1TB blues (mass storage without being green crap or seafail) and I'll hang onto my GTX 460 for a couple of years any way. $300 USD/Euro for this no thanks.

because you can add a second 560.... two 460's and your done. simple really., and you are comparing NON reference, aftermarket cooler, aftermarket OC with the cheapest reference 768mb gtx 460's!!! when the 460's were new they ranged from 200-250, that being said they will likely release 560's reference at 250$ thats 50$ more than 460's were new, that sounds about right to me....

How does that sound right to you? This is meant to be the next generation, therefore faster for the same money, not faster but you have to pay more!

With regards to 2 x GTX460s vs GTX560:

If you have, lets say, £300 to spend over 3 years on graphics cards. You are far better off buying 2x £150 cards (2x GTX460's) at the start which would give you very good performance for the 3 year period and then ditch them and buy all new cards when you need more speed again.

As opposed to:

Spending £250 on just one card (GTX560) having much lower performance than 2x GTX460's and then after maybe 1 or 2 years you have to buy another card to go with your first one which, yes, will result in a faster setup than the 2x 460's but you have had to spend a lot more money in a given period and had to put up with slower performance for 2 years only to have slightly faster performance in the final year.
