Review MSI N580GTX Lightning: Pushing the Fastest to the Limit


With a boatload of exclusive features, it’s hard not to consider the N580GTX Lightning as one of the best graphics cards available today. According to our test, this graphics card should have no problem generating 30+ FPS in most modern games with all the graphics detail turned on and set to maximum. The factory overclocking helps it gets ahead of the reference-based GTX 580, albeit only by a relatively small margin. You will need an equally powerful processor to balance its performance though.

Of course, N580GTX Lightning’s true potential could only be unleashed by overclocking it beyond the 60/ 192 MHz factory overclock. When it comes to that, the vast array of overclocking-oriented features on this card could prove to be very helpful in the process. We will be overclocking this card in our next article. Keep checking for the complete result!
