MSI N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II OC Video Card Available for Pre-Order

The GeForce GTX 560 video card from NVIDIA has not yet started selling, but details about upcoming models have, of course, began to leak to the web, such as the supposed pre-order price of the MSI-made model.

That NVIDIA will launch its first mainstream GeForce 500 series card on January 25 is a piece of information that has been known for some time now.
Granted, the GeForce GTX 560 from NVIDIA will only be accessible to the higher part of said mid-end market, the so-called performance segment as it were, but it is mainstream nonetheless.
There have also already been reports regarding a certain board that Micro-Star International is preparing.
The card in question has been going by the name of N560GTX-Ti Twin Frozr II and is a custom version of the GeForce GTX 560 Ti.
Since the 500 series are powered by GF110-series GPUs, and the GTX 460 used the GF104, it makes sense that the new board uses the GF114.
There is mention of 384 CUDA cores, dual-DVI, mini HDMI and even the clock frequencies are given, the numbers suggesting a fairly high performance standard.
The graphics chip itself has a core clock of 880 MHz, while the shaders and 1 GB of GDDR5 VRAM are set at 1,760 MHz and 4,200 MHz, respectively.
Other elements known are that the memory interface is of 256 bits and that the product is kept cool and stable thanks to two things.
One is the construction based on MSI's military Class II Components, while the other one is the Twin Frozr II cooler.
For those that do not know, said cooling module uses five heatpipes and a pair of 80mm fans, among other things, to disperse heat.
Apparently, pre-orders can already be set for the price of 280.33 Euro. Hopefully, the tag will go down once the official news breaks.
