MSI Radeon 7970 Lightning Quicky preview

Graphics Cards 1673 Published by

Due to some shipping issues our sample of the MSI Radeon HD 7970 Lightning had been delayed. The card finally arrived though and I wanted to share some photo's with you beforehand. It is a gorgeous card to see and use alright.

The Tahiti-based R7970 Lightning graphics card uses a big PCB, 17-phase digital power, a Twin Frozr IV dual-fan heatsink, and something new called a GPU Reactor. We'll explain that in our full review of course.

The Reactor Core in short is an add-on that has severalĀ  tantalum capacitors. Next to the capacitors, there are blue LEDs and a round window that seems to lit up. It should help with overclocking. The card is clocked at a default to 1,070mhz on the core for you.

Anyhow, here are some photo's, click the thumbnail. A full and deep review will follow shortly.
