MSI: Overclocked GeForce 8800 GTS 512

Just in time for the start of the GeForce 8800 GTS 512 based on the G92, the board partners present their selected product solutions. MSI stands out among them because they give their variant significantly higher clock frequencies.

The 'NX8800GTS-T2D512E-OC' is overclocked as standard in the factory. Shader overclocking not only increases the chip clock from 650 to 730 MHz, but also the frequency of the streaming processors (shader units) from 1,625 to 1,825 MHz. With an effective 1944 MHz, the memory clock is on the level of the reference design . The overall package should enable a performance increase of up to twelve percent.
