MSI GTX580 Lightning Review

As the GTX580 is clearly the fastest GPU by some margin we're really going to put it to the test by comparing it to Crossfire and twin-GPU cards.

3D Mark Vantage

Straight away the Lightning flexes its muscles by not only bludgeoning a reference overclocked card, but pushing the Crossfire setups hard too.

 

3D Mark 11

Understandably once we move away from the PhysX biased Vantage to 3D Mark 11 the Lightning drops away from the Crossfire cards, but still beats the 6870 CF setup. It's a country-mile ahead of its reference brother and that's the main thing.

Did you need to bump the voltage to get that kind of OC? I am tempted to OC my Palit GTX580 because it has the palit's cooler with two cooling fans on it. I just dont know what voltages are needed to OC these cards. The default voltage on my card is 1.0vQuote
