MSI N465GTX Twin Frozr II Graphics Card review

👤by Sahil Mannick Comments 📅01-07-10

Twin Frozr II Thermal Design - Reduces Heat by 16 degrees Celsius and noise by 21.5dB
Dual 8cm PWN Fans: Dual Ultra Quiet fans provide 50% better thermal efficiency and direct airflow to cool down GPU, memory and power module at once.

Five heat pipes with dual SuperPipe technology: 8mm SuperPipes can transfer heat much faster to the fins under the dual PWM fans, and the fans dissipate heat directly from fins.

Nickel-plated Copper Base: Large copper base coated with nickel provides the fasted heat dissipation and a bigger contact area with the GPU.

Direct Contact Design: Copper base, heatsink and heat pipes are all connected together and directly contacted, creating the shortest path to dissipate the heat of the GPU and to improve cooling efficiency.

High-Density Heatsink: Ultra high-density aluminium heatsink has large area for heat dissipation. Heat of GPU will be dissipated to each fin equally.

Military Class Components

Over voltage function of GPU
Supports over voltage function of GPU with Afterburner, and performance gain can be up to 15%.
-MSI Afterburner, a powerful overclocking/monitoring VGA utility, is co-developed by MSI & Rivatuner. It supports both Nvidia & ATI-based graphics cards from MSI and has a friendly user interface, helping users overclock and monitor their graphics cards easily. MSI Afterburner includes some unique features: Over Voltage function of GPU, support SLI and CrossfireX mode, Customized profiles for 2D and 3D modes, Advanced fan speed control.

PhysX & 3DVision Surround Technology
-Support PhysX technology effects for realist physics effect
- Support 3DVision Surround technology to provide 3 monitor output simultaneously and real 3D image experience. (Need to work with 3D monitor and 3D glass.)

MSI Live Update 4
MSI Live Update 4 is a single utility software that automatically checks BIOS, driver and utility updates and installs for you , which can save your time for searching and lower the risk while updating.

PCI-E 2.0
Designed to run perfectly with new PCI Express 2.0 bus architecture, offering a future proofing bridge to tomorrow's most bandwidth-hungry games and 3D applications by maximizing the 5GT/s PCI Express 2.0 bandwidth (twice that of first generation PCI Express). PCI Express 2.0 products are fully backwards compatible with existing PCI Express motherboards for broadest support.

HDMI Support
MSI graphics cards offer the HDMI functionality to provide access to premium digital content. HDMI enables gaming enthusiasts to seamlessly connect to their LCD monitor to bring the ultimate multimedia experience. (Only 1 single HDMI cable is required while streaming audio/video data to flat-panel display devices, such as Plasma/LCD TVs, or projector.)

SLI Support
Delivers up to 2x the performance of a single GPU configuration for unequalled gaming experiences by allowing two cards to run in parallel. The must-have feature for performance PCI Express graphics, SLI technology dramatically scales performance on today's hottest games.

Industry leading 3-way NVIDIA SLI technology offers amazing performance scaling by implementing AFR(Alternate frame Rendering) under Windows Vista/7 with solid, state-of-the-art drivers.

Blu-ray & HD-DVD Support
Both support the latest specifications of Blu-ray and HD DVD(High Definition DVD). It comes with the latest GPU and DDRIII superior processing performance in which users can easily enjoy the high-definition video of 1920x1080(1080p/i).

Nvidia CUDA
NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology is the world’s only C language environment that enables programmers and developers to write software to solve complex computational problems in a fraction of the time by tapping into the many-core parallel processing power of GPUs. With millions of CUDA™-capable GPUs already deployed, thousands of software programmers are already using the free CUDA™ software tools to accelerate applications—from video and audio encoding to oil and gas exploration, product design, medical imaging, and scientific research.
