MSI officially launches its N480GTX Lightning

The meanest Fermi around

Although it was detailed at last MSI MOA (Master Overclocking Arena) finals, MSI has now officially launched its latest Lightning series card, the N480GTX Lightning. Based on Nvidia's GF100 GPU, this beast brings an improved PCB design, Twin Frozr III cooler and is aimed purely at overclocking enthusiasts, especially those that are not afraid to meddle with LN2.

The card works 750MHz for the GPU and comes with 1536MB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4000MHz. It features 480 CUDA Cores clocked at 1401MHz. The Twin Frozr III cooler has two 90mm fans, two 8mm heatpipes and should be quite enough to keep this beast well cooled.

The card can brag with 16-phase VRM design, Military Class components, Dual BIOS, Proadlizer capacitors and DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort gold-plated outputs. Bear in mind that in order to run this beast, you'll need two 8-pin and one 6-pin PCI-Express power connector.

Back during MOA, the card was capable of scoring P39281, which is actually a 3DMark Vantage record, of course, under LN2 cooling.
