MSI to have four GTX 560 Ti cards

Written by Slobodan Simic

All copper Twin Frozr II Golden Edition

Following the launch of Nvidia's GTX 560 Ti card, MSI decided to release no less than four different SKUs, all featuring its own Twin Frozr II cooler that should keep the temperature and noise levels at much lower values when compared to the reference cards.

As noted, MSI's GTX 560 Ti lineup will feature four different cards, The N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II, N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/OC, N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/SOC and N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II Golden Edition. All of the cards will feature a Twin Frozr II cooler that should be up to 20 degrees Celsius cooler than the reference cooled card and Military Class components including All-Solid Caps, Hi-C Capacitors and Supper Ferrite Chokes. The cooler itself features four copper heatpipes (two 6mm and two 8mm), copper base and two 80mm PWM fans. The special representative of the GTX 560 Ti lineup is the N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II Golden Edition that features all copper heatsink and cover.

In addition to the reference clocked card, the OC version will be working at 880/1760/4200MHz for core, shaders and memory. The N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/SOC ended up clocked at 950/1900/4200 while the Golden Edition one works at 900/1800/4200MHz.

Unfortunately, the rest of the lineup has still to appear in retail/e-tail as for now the N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II/OC is the only one that can be bought for as low as €229,90.

Why doesn't MSI ever put these coolers on AMD products?

Put a cooler like this on the new 6990 and it would be cooler, quieter but most of all much faster. They could use 6970 frequencies or even higher!

Still i agree they seem slow at making custom cooled AMD cards, but it might be more related to AMD's policy in this matter. I remember they didn't allow parterns to release custom cards for quite some time after the launch of 6870 while for 6850 there were custom ones since day 1(if my mind isn't playing tricks on me).

Partners seem borderline desperate to get these things sold, i don't remember a launch with so many different versions launched within a few days by EVERYONE. Makes me wonder about the margins and sales of the 580 and 570.

@arclight

Yes i think you are right, the 68xx was the first AMD cards, that i can remember, to be launched with non-ref coolers. AMD seems to be very worried about custom coolers and i have no idea why. It is the only thing that stops me buying AMD as i like the look of custom coolers, how they lower the temps, noise and allow you overclock the nuts off your card!


@Regenweald

This is the first time i have seen a launch actually done right! If i needed/could afford a new card then i would be buying one of these. Normally you have to wait months for all the custom boards to come out and by then i am looking at the next generation coming over the horizon!!

WOW! Just saw the link you gave me. Not sure how that baby got past me. That is one sweet card, with that cooler and that overclock and then unlocking it to a full 6970 would make it a very fast puppy.

Good point Loadwick, nice to see a gigabyte SuperOverClock so soon after launch :-)

I think the question will they ever be in stock?! From what i have seen the average 560 only gets to about 930-960MHz so we are talking about some serious cheery picking. TBH i think its a very good value card right now and wouldn't be surprised if either the price goes up or the clock goes down like we have seen with other cards in the past.

MSI really does make the best cooler around:
