Later trying 2 top-end graphics boards from GB and EVGA founded on the Nvidia GF110 processor, we have acquired still another similar-class product to assure it. This is the MSI N580GTX Lightning Xtreme
Version that was declared back in summer at Computex 2011.
Early the declaration MSI extended an common N580GTX Lightning but the Xtreme Version is supposed to be quicker, more advanced and more pricey. Let's assume a closer appear at it.
You do not have to be a military aircraft master to identify the American fifth era fighter F-22 Raptor in the image on the confront and back sides of the box. The box is vast, measuring 460x310x78 millimeters.
As well the fighter, there are too a number of information images, tags and slogans referring to the product comprised within. If you require still more data, you can open up the top of the box and read as much about the graphics board as you need.
There is a window here, permitting you a peep at the graphics boards cooler. Added into the box are 2 power adapters (6-pin->8-pin), 2 flexible SLI bridges, one DVI-I->D-Sub adapter, 3 multimeter cables, a CD with drivers and utilities, and a promo booklet.
Now we are going to speak about another so quick and so costly graphics accelerator. What are its advantages and drawbacks equated to the lastly reviewed products from EVGA and GB? The answers to these and other questions are in our fresh review.
As against to the same products from GB and EVGA, the MSI N580GTX Lightning Xtreme Version extends a complete selection of links: 2 DVI-I slots with support for high resolutions (dual-link), one HDMI 1.4a link and a Display Port.
The links are entire gold-plated. This can scarcely develope the signal quality but appears well anyway. There are 2 MIO links at the top of the PCB to construct 2-, 3- and still 4-way SLI forms.
