MSI GTX580 Lightning Review

Alien vs Predator

The Asura engine has proven to be very stable when testing, giving similar performance across a range of testbeds. So it's pretty awe-inspiring to find the Lightning besting the overclocked reference GTX580 by 12 FPS average.

Crysis Warhead

If the MSI GTX580 Lightning hasn't already proven itself worthy of any accolades we can bestow, with Crysis Warhead at maximum settings it gains an extra 7 frames per second average over the standard card. 43 FPS at this level of detail was unthinkable from a tri-SLI setup a short while ago. How things change.

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
