CeBIT 2011:
R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition

MSI has officially launched and showed its newest Radeon HD 6950 card, the R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition. The new cooler will bring a new fan design and will use the previously seen SuperPipe technology.

The card itself features 1408 stream processors, and clocks are set at 800MHz for the GPU and 5000MHz for memory. MSI will also roll out an OC version of the same card which should run at 850/5200MHz.

The PCB features a 6+2-phase desing and will feature Military Class II components as well as support for "Triple Overvoltage", which means that you will be able to set voltages for GPU, memory and VDDCI. It also comes with a hardware switch on the back of the card that regulates the fan speed for either maximum cooling or lowest possible noise.

As noted, the new cooler features a new "propeller blade" fan that should provide 20 percent more airflow while being 11 degrees cooler and 13.9dB quieter when compared to reference cooler. The fans are cooling a large heatsink that is connected to a copper base via five heatpipes (three 6mm and two SuperPipes 8mm).

The card should launch pretty soon and might reach some shops this month.

I always felt that there was something 'off' with the frozr fan shroud design, but with version III, I think MSI has nailed it (at least for me) they really give a military spec feel ;-) love them...

The problem is that even The Frozr II is expensive, even against ASUS's DirectCU II trislot one which in some shops is cheaper... the card is nice, the price I doubt it.

MSI go the extra length to put in the High Qual Caps and the 3 way overvaltage.

thats the reason for your price increase.
