MSI Unveils GeForce GTX 970 Gold Limited Edition

At its BeatIT 2014 event, MSI unveiled its limited-edition GeForce GTX 970 Gold graphics card. The card looks essentially similar to the GTX 970 Gaming, with the exception of a pure copper-stack heatsink, instead of aluminium, exposed copper heat pipes, and a golden-orange tinted cooler shroud applique. The back-plate features a unique vent pattern, with a golden "dragon" logo. MSI didn't disclose clock speeds, but we expect the card's design-focus to be on overclocking headroom, rather than factory-OC. The other thing that remains to be disclosed is just how "limited" the card's production run is, and in which markets it will be available.

MSI Holding Off on GTX 980 Lightning, in Anticipation of Bigger Chip

MSI is reportedly holding off on launching an overclocking-grade GeForce GTX 980 graphics card that you can ride into record-setting competitions, based on its coveted OC Series Lightning brand. The company probably wants to avoid a repeat of last year, when launch of its GeForce GTX 780 Lightning graphics card was closely trailed by NVIDIA's launch of the inherently faster GeForce GTX 780 Ti, and resulting price-cuts for the GTX 780, throwing MSI's inventories in jeopardy. The year before that, MSI launched the Radeon HD 7970 Lightning just weeks before AMD launched the faster HD 7970 GHz Edition.

MSI could stick to selling its Gaming Series GTX 980, equipped with the new Twin Frozr V cooling solution, even offering factory-overclocked variants of the card. This also leads one to wonder if NVIDIA has a third, high-end graphics card based on the GM204 silicon, on the 'cards,' one with higher clock speeds, or a higher temperature-based clock speed throttle, which is currently at a hair-trigger 80°C on the GTX 980.
