Back when the first Kepler cards came out and reviews (including ours) showed the GeForce GTX 680 to be the all-around fastest single-GPU graphics card on the planet, the general consensus was that AMD would have to lower the price of its Radeon HD 7970 series.

MSI this week announced a handful of its own brand Radeon HD 7950 graphics, including the R7950 Twin Frozr 3GD5/OC, which brings more to the gaming table than just a funktastic model number. Sharing the spotlight with AMD's 7950 GPU is a custom air cooler MSI claims is up to 10 percent chillier and produces 13.7dB less noise than the reference heatsink under full load. To achieve that level of cooling performance, the Twin Frozr III heatsink battles thermals with a dual 8cm fan design and two 8mm "Superpipe" heatpipes that whisk heat up and away from the GPU. A special fan blade design takes care... Read more...
