For our second GeForce GTX 560 448 core review we have a peek at MSI's finest offering. Just in time to make this article they finalized their GeForce GTX 560 448 Power OC edition. As the name suggests, the card is factory overclocked.

It doesn't stop there though as the card comes with a custom PCB, the latest update of their TwinFrozr III cooler and an extra trick or two to ensure you'll get the most out your graphics card experience.

So, NVIDIA released the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 core. It's a product that will be faster than its predecessor as it has more shader processors, as it's a castrated GTX 570 really.

See, take a GeForce GTX 570, disable one shader processor cluster and boom, that's the GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 core -- a product that carries the same clock frequencies (if reference) as that GTX 570 yet with fourteen shader processor clusters out of the fifteen on the GTX 570. In theory that means that the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core is merely a fifteenth slower then the GTX 570...

So make no mistake, the GeForce GTX 560 448 will certainly be a nice speed bump compared to the regular GeForce GTX 560 Ti. Being based off that GeForce GTX 570 means it also comes with a wider memory bus at 320-bit and yeah, more memory as 1280 MB GDDR5 will be placed on these products.

Anyway, we'll talk tech on the next page as this is just the introduction. The product reviewed today comes from MSI. It's their all new GeForce GTX 560 Ti 448 core tagged under the codename N560GTF-448 TwinFrozr III Power Edition, which comes factory faster clocked.

The card comes with a triple over-voltage function which supports voltage adjustment of GPU, memory & VDDCI. And the power indication hints towards a P/S Switch Function where two fan speed profiles (Performance / Silence) can be configured.

The product will get that new GPU seated into a custom PCB and will be cooled by that lovely TwinFrozr III cooler. Armed with a 210Watt TDP, will the card be a good chunk faster than its predecessors? Let's find out shall we?
