MSI GeForce 8600 GT sports 'turbo' button


— 2:53 PM on August 28, 2007

Back in June at Computex, we saw an MSI notebook that featured a "turbo" button. Said button allowed users to quickly and easily toggle the machine's processor speed between stock and overclocked settings. MSI has now carried over this turbo button technology to a new graphics card based on Nvidia's GeForce 8600 GT graphics processor.

As DailyTech reports, the new NX8600GT Twin Turbo graphics card sports a dual-slot cooler and has a button on its back plate that switches between two different BIOSes. One of the BIOSes sets the card's core speed to 540MHz and its 256MB of GDDR3 memory to 700MHz, while the other BIOS overclocks the card's GPU to 580MHz and the memory to 800MHz.
