The MSI GTX560 Ti Twin Frozer II tested today is an impressive card. It is the traditional Twin Frozer II series build and that means customized PCB with quality components, a nice aesthetic design, the card is factory clocked higher at 880 MHz and then the Twin Frozer II cooler does its enchantment alright. At factory clocks when we stress the card with a hefty game, the temperatures did not rise over 55 Degrees C, and that's testimony of a good and proper cooled product alright.
With that level of game rendering performance you can address any modern game up-to say a monitor resolution of 1920x1200 combined with 4x Antialiasing and 16x Anisotropic filtering. Power consumption isn't really an issue either either consuming roughly 170 Watt when it's stressed badly in a game. Mind you these are peak levels, the average power consumption will tell another story.
Noise wise you will not complain neither, the noise level is a tiny bit higher than average but remains incredibly acceptable, while in return you receive amazing cooling performance. Now add features like 3D capability, CUDA and PhysX. Then overall you'll notice that the GTX 560 Ti series really offer a lot.
And sure performance wise you can't complain about anything here as all modern DX11 and lower games will play absolutely fine on the MSI GTX560 Ti Twin Frozer II, and that's with decent image quality settings enabled at say 4xAA and 16xAF + very high in-game quality settings.
Much like all other GTX 560 Ti reviews we have written, the success of the product will depend on the pricing level. MSI definitely has a very nice product here in their hands, and if they offer it at the right price these GTX 570 Ti cards can become golden; because remember, with a good tweak you'll lift it close to GTX 570 performance.
As such the product is definitely recommend and is an incredible fun card to not just play games with, but to fool around and tweak with a little as well. There's plenty of headroom there and we are confident it will not disappoint you.
MSI N560GTX Ti Twin Frozer II review The MSI GTX560 Ti Twin Frozer II tested today indeed comes all customized and factory overclocked, Armed with some Military grade components and a robust build the dark PCB of the MSI GTX560 Ti Twin Frozer II will carry a GPU clocked at 880 MHz and it's memory at 4200 MHz, both thus a nice chunk faster than reference. To top things off, MSI put the Twin Frozr II cooler on this card and that admittedly does do wonder as we measure peak temperatures BELOW 55 Degrees C.
