It was going to be hard for the MSI GeForce GTX 680 TwinFrozr 2GB to disappoint us. We're in love with the new GTX 680 GPU from NVIDIA which offers us some amazing performance and the TwinFrozr series from MSI never disappoints us. Combine those two together and you end up with an awesome video card.
The cooler is clearly the stand out for the card, though, and you can see why. Coming in cooler than the reference card when we've overclocked this one so high is what makes the cooler so great. To then throw in those strong noise levels into the mix and you're just in a win-win situation.
The only area that lacks for the MSI GTX 680 TwinFrozr 2GB is the bundle with not a whole lot going on. This is something we've been talking about for a while, though. More and more companies are choosing to shrink the bundle down when it comes to these higher end video cards. If you also look at it at the same time, there's not much more that MSI could've thrown into the mix thanks to the fact that the card utilizes a full size DisplayPort connector instead of the mini version we see on AMD cards.
Most people are going to find themselves not caring about the bundle so much, though, and are just interested in the card itself and what it's capable of. The good news is that the GTX 680 TwinFrozr from MSI is just simply awesome and capable of a lot. The TwinFrozr III cooler has been around for a while and the dual slot design is working extremely well.
Throw in these shrunken cores, and the coolers are working better than ever offering us lower core temperatures, less noise and more performance. If you're a fan of the TwinFrozr series the chances are you'll jump on this video card straight away. If you haven't had the chance to use a TwinFrozr MSI card before and you're ready to buy a new high-end video card, this is one you should be looking at.
MSI's TwinFrozr series of video cards never disappoints and this is just another situation that proves that right.
