MSI Radeon HD 7870 TwinFrozr III OC review -
Connectivity wise for monitor outputs we see a four-fold of connectors supporting all high-resolution monitors. We get two display port connectors (mini), HDMI and one dual-link DVI connector.
The TwinFrozr III cooler we found to be quite average. Pre-overclocked at 1050 MHz the temps during gaming jumped over 70 degrees C (hottest peak temp).
The board's overall power consumption from idle to load is slightly higher than reference. Expect an idle wattage of roughly 10 Watts and, when the monitor goes into power save mode, the card throttles down even lower to 3 Watts. We measured the TDP for the 7870 at roughly 160 Watts for the card tested today.
We test and review the MSI Radeon HD 7790 OC edition, also known under SKU code R7790-1GD5-OC incl FCAT Frametimes. The new graphics card is intended to boost a little more performance into entry-level gaming.
MSI Radeon HD 7770 Power Edition review
We review the MSI Radeon HD 7770 Power Edition. MSI recently released an updated Radeon HD 7770 1GHz edition with their own 1.1 GHz custom model. They use their own custom 4-layer PCB and equipped it with a dual cooling solution. I say dual here as you get an extra fan that you can pop onto the card for extra cooling. MSI also opened up the voltages for Aux, GPU and memory making the card very tweakable.
MSI Radeon HD 7850 Power Edition OC review
We review the MSI Radeon HD 7850 Power Edition OC with that all new TwinFrozr IV cooler. The updated cooler has much better looks and MSIs proprietary TwinFrozr IV cooling system that packs 8mm thick nickel-plated copper heatpipes to convey heat drawn directly from the GPU to a large aluminum fin array, ventilated by two 80 mm fans. These fans are based on the new dust removal technology, which means that the 1st 30- seconds they'll spin backwards in an attempt to remove any residual dust that can build up over time.
MSI Radeon HD 7870 TwinFrozr III OC review
MSI releases their Radeon HD 7870 TwinFrozer III OC series, a factory overclocked (50 MHz higher at 1050 MHz) Radeon HD 7870 solution with room for even higher tweaks. As its name implies the graphics card utilizes MSIs proprietary TwinFrozr III cooling system that packs 8mm thick nickel-plated copper heatpipes to convey heat drawn directly from the GPU to a large aluminum fin array, ventilated by two 80 mm fans.
