MSI Starts off With Overclocked GeForce GTX 285

Graphics card manufacturers either release entire lineups of products based on a particular GPU on one go, comprising of a base-model sticking to the GPU vendors' reference specifications, all the way up to factory-overclocked cards, or they release base-models first and follow it up with overclocked variants later. MSI did the opposite, with starting its GeForce GTX 285 lineup with a "base-model" that doesn't adhere to reference clock speeds by NVIDIA, but instead, comes slightly overclocked.

The MSI GeForce GTX 285 (model: N285GTX-T2D1G-OC), the company's first entry to its N285GTX series, comes with clock speeds of 680 MHz (core), 1476 MHz (shader) and 2484 MHz (memory). These, against the NVIDIA reference clock speeds of 680/1476/1998 MHz. The GeForce GTX 285, as we know, is based on the G200b graphics processor. It is built on the 55nm manufacturing node of TSMC. It features 240 stream processors and 1 GB of GDDR3 memory across a 512-bit wide memory bus. The MSI N285GTX-T2D1G-OC should make it by January 15.
