MSI GTX580 Lightning Review

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
