MSI Brings Turbo Button to GeForce 8600GT

MSI has announced its new NX8600GT Twin Turbo, which uniquely features dual video BIOSes, each containing different core and memory clock settings. Users can switch between the two clock speed profiles with the press of a turbo button placed on the metal expansion bracket above the DVI ports. With the stock speed profile, the NX8600GT Twin Turbo operates at 540 MHz core, 1400 MHz memory and the shader clock operates at 1450 MHz. A press of the turbo button raises the clock speeds up to 580 MHz core, 1600 MHz memory and the shader clock receives a boost to 1508 MHz. MSI claims a 20% performance boost in 3DMark06 with a press of the turbo button. Other notable features of the NX8600GT Twin Turbo with 256MB of GDDR3 memory include dual dual-link DVI, HDCP compliance, HDMI output capable and component video output.
