MSI GTX580 Lightning Review


MSI GTX580 Lightning Review

Unigine 0xAA

Unigine really requires a lot of extra performance to gain any increase in result so it's surprising to see the minimum frame-rate of the Lightning so far ahead of the reference GTX580. An extra couple of frames overall are not to be dismissed lightly.


Unigine 8xAA

The song remains the same with the anti-aliasing set to 8x. The Lightning dominates its reference brother at minimum frame rate and just edges overall. It's worth noting that the Lightning keeps up with the HD6870 CF setup, which is especially imposing when you consider how suited to Unigine the AMD 6 series is.
