The other day we checked out the brand new MSI GTX 560 Ti-448 1280MB Twin Frozr III Power Edition and found ourselves extremely impressed what the limited edition model from NVIDIA was offering us for the holiday season. Being part of the Power Edition series from MSI, though, means that it stands out more so than a lot of other companies, and via the help of MSI Afterburner we're able to overclock the card.
The biggest benefit to the Power Edition cards, though, is they expand the range of voltages we can adjust when it comes to overclocking. With more range for voltage adjustment, we're able to get higher overclocks and of course higher overclocks, meaning we're going to see more performance out of the card.
Today we'll be firing up MSI Afterburner and seeing just what we can do on the overclocking side. Knowing MSI, the Power Edition should give us a decent overclock and we should hopefully see a nice boost in performance. Before we get into the performance side of things, though, the first thing we need to do is check out our test system setup. Once we've done that we'll quickly cover how we went with the overclocking side of things before we of course run the card through our gauntlet.
Let's find out if our limited edition card has limited overclocking capabilities or if the Power Edition naming to the card can live up to its name and give us some more power.
