MSI GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr III 2GB (N660-TF-2GD5-OC)
MSI offers as many as five GeForce GTX 660 models. The most exciting of them are the N660 Hawk (Limited District) with a GPU clock rate of 1085/1150 MHz and the today's GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr III. The eye-catching packaging with a 3-year warranty badge is extremely informative.
You can open the front flap and discover even more information about the graphics card and its technologies.
The accessories include everything we’ve come to expect from MSI products.
Manufactured in China, the graphics card costs $239.
MSI cards can be identified easily by their original Twin Frozr III cooler that covers the entire face side of the PCB.
The MSI GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr III looks splendid indeed. It has a standard selection of video outputs protected with plastic caps:
These interfaces allow using up to four monitors concurrently.
MIO and power connectors can be found in their conventional locations.
The MSI GeForce GTX 660 Twin Frozr III follows the same design principle as the above-discussed Gigabyte.
We can see the reference design with a 4+1-phase power system. It is additionally reinforced with solid-state capacitors that feature aluminum cores and super-low resistance.
Such capacitors are rated for 10 years of working at full load, so they can be easily sent on a Mars mission and expected to get back still working.
The revision A1 GPU is dated the 30th week of 2012, just like the Gigabyte’s:
It also has the same base clock rate of 1033 MHz (1098 MHz in the boost mode). The two gigabytes of GDDR5 memory are represented by the same Samsung chips as we've seen on the EVGA and Gigabyte cards.
