MSI GTX560Ti With 448 Cores Review

Up Close

Considering that the big selling point of this remodelling of the successful GTX560Ti is the 448 Cores part, it's surprising to see it take up so little space on the box. We know that the 448 is a very limited run of cards, but if you've got to make new packaging for a product that is, at first glance, the same, then shout louder.

Unlike the Gigabyte triple-fan arrangement the MSI Twin Frozr III cooler fits much more snugly to the 448, with no unsightly overhangs. We've often remarked how much we like this cooler when used on midrange cards and it has lost none of its charm.

Whereas the Gigabyte is on a blue PCB, the MSI comes on a brown one. An odd colour choice we have to confess. We don't know many people who go "mmm brown".

Further demonstrating the difference between the Gigabyte and MSI cards, the MSI still retains the two 6pin power arrangement, but only has an HDMI and two DVIs.
