The MSi N260GTX Lightning Black Edition is a video card built for serious gamers. It has a fast processor and a large amount of fast memory. The Black Edition is identical to the original N260GTX Lightning, but with the addition of an AirForce Panel. This panel allows the user to increase the speed at which the processor and memory are operating at a simple touch, and it also allows them to do so on the fly while in a game. In addition, up to three of these cards can be linked together in a single PC for even more processing power.
The processor is a 680MHz GeForce GTX 260, working with 1792MB of DDR3 memory in 448-bit mode. The memory clock is set to 2100MHz, and there is 111.9GB/s of bandwidth allocated to moving data in and out of memory. The card can support two DVI displays, a VGA display, or an HDMI display. There is also HDCP support for home theater users, but the two large fans on the card prevent it from running silently. This card supports DirectX 10.0 and OpenGL 2.1.
