MSI sure does seem infatuated with its Twin Frozr III cooling solution, which has been appearing on a number of the board maker's graphics cards. That's not a bad thing, considering MSI claims big temp reductions due in part to the cooler's propeller blade technology. The newest card to get the Twin Frozr III makeover is the N570GTX Power Edition. MSI claims its Twin Frozr III cooler provides 20 percent more airflow to the N570GTX, chilling the GPU by 18C over reference, and reducing fan noise by 7.7dB. Cooler and quieter? That's what we calling having your cake and eating it too. In addition to... Read more...
NASA tells us that "contrary to popular misconception, lightning often strikes the same place twice." This would certainly explain why MSI is launching not one, but TWO 'Lightning' videocards, the N580GTX Lightning and R6970 Lightning. These cards play for different teams obviously, the N580GTX representing Nvidia and the R6970 entrenched in AMD's camp. But both cards sport many of the same features, including MSI's Power4 architectures with all kinds of component upgrades, like a PWM module that's twice as large as previous Lightning cards. Memory has its own indepedendent power supply using an... Read more...
MSI is rarely content to stick with reference designs and prefers to march to the beat of its own drum. This is evidenced yet again with the release of thier R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition graphics card. What makes this card different from all the other Radeon HD 6950 parts is the cooling solution, which MSI claims offers 11C lower temps than reference. It also comes with triple over-voltage support and a 6+2 phase power system. This, MSI says, will greatly improve overclocking potential. Combined with a cooling apparatus that offers 20 percent more airflow and "handpicked components for best... Read more...
