MSI Announces TwinFrozr III Powered Radeon HD 7800 Series

MSI announced two Radeon HD 7800 series graphics cards, both based on its TwinFrozr III cooling solution, albeit different variants. The R7870 TwinFrozr III from MSI uses a long PCB, and a meatier version of the TwinFrozr III cooler, which has been featured on high-end GeForce GTX 500 and Radeon HD 6900 series, in the past. It uses five 8 mm-thick nickel-plated copper heat pipes to convey heat drawn directly from the GPU, to a large aluminum fin array, ventilated by two 80 mm fans. This card is labeled to have factory-overclocked clock speeds.

The R7850 TwinFrozr III uses a shorter PCB, and a new, leaner version of the cooler, which has never been used by MSI before. It uses three 8 mm-thick n nickel-plated copper heat pipes to convey heat drawn directly from the GPU, to the heatsink. The two fans are nested within the aluminum fin stacks to maximize air-flow flow for heat dissipation. MSI boasts about how the noise output of this cooler is “only 27 dB” on load. Like the R7870 TF3, this card is factory-overclocked, too.

Looks like MSI cheaped out on the 7850 TFIII edition.... no bracing whatsoever between the cooler and the PCB. :shadedshu

This card is definitely going to hang down with the weight of the cooler on it :(

I wonder if they will include the BIOS switch for fan profiles on these cards like they did on the 6870 Hawk????
