Another addition to the MSI Lightning line is the GTX 480, which we will be reviewing today. MSI has slightly overclocked the GTX 480 Lightning by 50 Mhz on the core and 75 Mhz on the memory. This is also not a reference designed card from MSI. They have installed improved voltage controller circuitry and to help cool it all off they have tossed on their custom Twin Frozr III dual fan cooling solution. They have also added dual BIOS, voltage measuring points, and the ability to change three voltages to help overclock the card. The Lightning also includes the world’s first 16 phase PWM on the GTX 480, as well as the world’s first independent memory power connection. With a price tag of $515, we will run it through a gamut of tests to see if it lives up to it’s price tag.
