New World-Leading Afterburner Feature
Taipei, Taiwan — At Computex 2011—the annual technology expo was held this year from May 31 to June 5 in Taipei. International motherboard and graphic card maker MSI displayed its new N580GTX Lighting Xtreme Edition (N580GTX Lighting XE).
The new N580GTX Lighting XE comes equipped with a new Propeller Blade fan with “Smart Temp Sensor” and “Dust Removal” technologies as well as support for Afterburner’s latest “Triple Temp Monitor” feature.
The new technologies and comprehensive product lines on display are a testament to MSI’s leadership in the graphics card market and our continual spirit of innovation.
Revolutionary Fan Design with Smart Temp Sensor and Dust Removal Technology MSI continues to develop industry-leading cooling solutions to meet the needs of graphic card enthusiasts, and two new revolutionary fan technologies were on display at Computex 2011 this year:
Smart Temp Sensor: When temperatures exceed 45 ° C, the special coating on the fan will change from blue to white to warn users that the system might be running too hot and remind them to check the system’s cooling status.
Dust Removal: When the system is turned on, the graphics card fan will rotate in the opposite direction for 30 seconds. By running in reverse, the fan helps to remove dust from the heatsink fins to ensure optimal cooling every time.
Triple Temp Monitor: New World-Leading Afterburner Feature MSI’s proprietary Afterburner utility is the industry’s most comprehensive and most powerful professional graphics card overclocking utility and has many fans in the media as well as followers among overclocking enthusiasts.
This year’s Computex was used to showcase the latest feature added to Afterburner: Triple Temp Monitor for GPU/Memory/MOSFET.1
Using temperature sensor chips on the graphic card, Afterburner’s monitoring window can display the GPU, memory, and power supply module temperatures in real-time.
This not only enables the user to monitor the graphic card’s operation, but also to check system temperatures in order to make improvements to the system’s overall cooling strategy for smoother operation.
In addition to the latest Triple Temp Monitor technology, Afterburner also comes with the “Predator” video-capturing feature.
Gamers can use Predator to record in-game video and then upload their clips to YouTube to relive their favorite moments.
Other MSI-exclusive features supported by Afterburner include Triple Overvoltage, advanced fan-speed control and 5 types of overclocking profiles.
Triple Temp Monitor is supported by N580GTX Lightning XE, N580GTX Lightning, R6970 Lightning and N560GTX-Ti Hawk
