MSI has made its R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC official. This card features the new Twin Frozr III cooling solution, it has a 850MHz core and 2GB GDDR5 clocked at 5200MHz. That's a 50MHz and 200MHz boost over the reference model.
Internationally renowned graphics card and mainboard manufacturer MSI proudly launches the R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC today. This all-new graphics card is not only equipped with the latest Twin Frozr III dual fan cooling module, it also incorporates MSI's exclusive Propeller Blades technology for 20% more airflow than conventional fan designs. Under full load, the GPU core runs 11˚C cooler than the reference thermal solution and noise output is up to 13.9 dB lower. Triple Over-Voltage support and a 6+2 phase power delivery system delivers high overclocking potential and stability, achieving up to 21% more performance than the reference HD 6950*! By meeting the needs for increased cooling efficiency, enhanced power supply, improved overclocking potential and constant stability, the R6950 Frozr III Power Edition OC is undoubtedly the best HD6950 graphics card on the market today.
20% More Airflow with Exclusive Propeller Blades Technology
The MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC is equipped with the latest, MSI-exclusive, Propeller Blades technology which features air channels on the edge of the blades to expand total airflow by up to 20%! The twin 8cm PWM fans, heatpipe technology, large surface-area nickel-plated copper base and high fin density all serve to rapidly draw excess heat away from the graphics card. Under a full load, the R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition GPU runs 11˚C cooler than the reference design while noise emission is reduced by 13.9 dB. This validates the superior cooling performance and silent running advantages of the Twin Frozr III.
Since active users may use their graphics cards for a variety of applications, MSI developed the exclusive P/S Switch function for controlling the speed of the fans. The Performance Mode is used to achieve an optimal cooling performance, helping to keep the GPU cool even under high loads. For applications or settings where noiselessness is preferred, the Silent Mode can be used as the appropriate mode for playing games or watching movies, ensuring that the fan noise is kept to a minimum while still receiving outstanding cooling performance.
Triple Overvoltage and 6+2 Phase Power System for 21% More Performance
Users can Triple Overvoltage this graphics card by using the popular MSI-exclusive Afterburner overclocking utility which makes it possible to adjust the GPU-Memory-VDDCI voltage. To achieve an maximum performance and stability at high loads, the 6+2 Phase Power System design delivers 37% more power than the reference design. All together, the R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC offers up to 21% more performance than the reference card!
Handpicked Components for the Best Quality
MSI's R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC graphics card uses the newest Military Class II Components such as Hi-C CAP, Super Ferrite Chokes (SFC), and all-solid capacitors to enhance the overclocking headroom under high-load conditions. Hi-C CAPs have a lifespan 8 times larger than traditional solid capacitors which increases GPU stability and the lifespan of the graphics card. Furthermore, the SFCs improves efficiency by 10% while increasing the maximum current output by 30%.
