[FONT=Verdana]MSI has just released its greatest custom-designed GeForce GTX 260 graphics card after a great introduction at Cebit 2009: The MSI N260GTX Lightning. Utilizing “Military Class” components, which redefine the standards of top quality graphics cards, 1792MB double-sized memory and exclusive Twin Frozr thermal design, the MSI N260GTX Lightning is the most unique GeForce GTX260 on the market. Additionally, the MSI 260GTX Lightning has important overclocking features such as V-Check points which measure the running voltage and the MSI exclusive “AirForce Panel” which only comes in our “limited” black edition package. All the user has to do is slightly touch the panel to enjoy high speed performance by overclocking! [/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]Military Class – The standard of top quality[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Military Class is the new standard in top quality graphics cards! The N260GTX Lightning uses ultra long lifespan solid caps, which maintain a 2.5x times lifespan compared to normal solid cap and ultra high stability Hi-C Cap that can withstand 20% higher temperatures. With such high quality components on one card, the MSI N260GTX Lightning has incomparable overclocking potential and extremely high stability and reliability.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana]World’s first 10 Phase PWM[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]The MSI N260GTX Lightning is the world’s first graphics card with 10 Phase PWM for maximum overclocking performance. Given that the core of the video card (GPU – Graphics Processing Unit) needs more power than a CPU, the new power design dedicates 8 Phases for the GPU and 2 Phases for the Memory, giving it extreme stability and the ability to break new overclock records! [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Double the memory [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]The N260GTX Lightning doubles the onboard memory 1792MB GDDR3 and reaches (in combination with the original processor) a frequency ratio of 680/2100 MHz*. DirectX 10 high resolution games are easy to handle for the N260GTX Lightning.[/FONT]

[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Revolutionary Overclocking Panel[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]The MSI AirForce Panel, an exclusive bundled device, uses a touch panel to provide the complete voltage and clock settings, allowing the user to slide the panel to overclock the card! With the AirForce Panel, everyone can easily reach the professional overclocker’s world! The AirForce panel features different profiles for office work, gaming, etc. so you can easily jump to the appropriate setting. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]In addition, MSI N260GTX Lightning is equipped with V-Check points for measuring voltage during overclocking activities. You can simply use the multi-meter to detect the core and memory voltages and keep your video card running at optimal power.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]Twin Frozr thermal design[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]MSI’s N260GTX Lightning has an intelligent thermal design with dual fans dubbed Twin Frozr. The card produces ultra-low noise under regular load and dynamically adjusts the fan speed during intensive game play and other 3D-operations. The thermal design provides great cooling efficiency to reach the best overclocking performance.[/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana] [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]There are 2 SKU’s of the N260GTX Lightning. [/FONT]
[FONT=Verdana]The AirForce panel is only included in the N260GTX Lightning Black Edition which comes with a special weapons style packing.[/FONT]
