MSI working on GTX 680 Twin Frozr III

New card gets pixellized


According to a leak over at Cowcotland.com, it appears that MSI is going to pair up the GTX 680 with its quite famous Twin Frozr III cooler. The new card will unfortunately be based on the reference PCB, so we are probably looking at a similar overclocking potential that you would get from a reference card.

Although it is based on the reference PCB with 4-phase VRM design and two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors, we must note that the Twin Frozr III certainly looks good on it. The new N680GTX Twin Frozr 2GD5/OC as MSI calls it, will work at 1058MHz base and 1124MHz boost clocks for the GPU, while those 2GB of GDDR5 memory paired up with a 256-bit memory interface are left at reference 1502MHz (6.0GHz effective).

Of course, we do not doubt that MSI's Twin Frozr III will do a really good job in keeping the noise level and temps at lower values when compared to the reference cards as this cooler has already proved its worth on many other cards. In case you missed it, it features five 8mm heatpipes connected to a hefty heatsink cooled by two 70mm fans.

Unfortunately, there is no word on the actual release date or the price for that matter. You can check out the rest of the pictures over at Cowcotland.com.
