MSI Intros Limited Edition 'Batman' Graphics Card--Seriously!

We had to do a double take to ensure this was real, but sure enough, the video card shown here is no joke. Though, it does have something in common with The Joker. In what we believe is a first for any company, MSI has just released a Batman video card. Let that sink in: a Batman-themed GPU.

In fact, the company is "proudly" introducing the N260GTX-T2D896 Batman: Arkham Asylum Edition GPU, which ships with a Harley Quinn image on the card as well as the PC title "Batman: Arkham Asylum." If you can get past the crazy antics, you'll find an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 onboard, 896MB of GDDR3 memory and twin DVI ports.

Wilder still, MSI is limiting these to just 1,600 pieces, and they'll only be available in Europe, Japan, Taiwan, Australia and some of the SEA countries. In other words, any Batman-loving North Americans best call someone overseas to snag them one, and then use those vacation days you've been banking to go pick it up. What, you think that suggestion is in jest? Why so serious?

With a full-version game bundle to experience the amazing NVIDIA PhysX technology
MSI N260GTX-T2D896 Batman’s exclusive Game bundle "Batman: Arkham Asylum" is developed by well-known Rocksteady Studios. Its story continues from the movie “Batman: The Dark Knight.” After the Joker is defeated by Batman, he has been sent to the Arkham Asylum. Therefore, with Harley Quinn’s help, the Joker controls the asylum and releases those caged prisons. Batman must find the way to beat all evil challengers.

It is worth mentioning that the game supports NVIDIA PhysX technology. Through the physical effects processed by GPU, users can experience the swinging clothes, flying flags, breaking-down and crazing things in a much more realistic way. So gamers can enjoy a brand new gaming experience.

Military Class Concept Components – SSC (Solid State Choke) and All Solid CAPs
MSI N260GTX-T2D896 Batman adopts form-in-one SSC (solid state choke) and All Solid CAPs (solid capacitors). The former effectively reduces buzz noise under heavy loading and can increase the maximum current value up to 30% compared to traditional chock. Therefore, SSC can provide more stable current when under extreme overclocking operation. The Solid CAP has a longer lifespan than a liquid one. Under the high frequency and high temperature operating environment, Solid CAP provides even more stable power supply. To ensure the best quality, MSI N260GTX-T2D896 Batman adopts SSC and all Solid CAPs.
