MSI has announced its newest graphics card, the MSI R7970 Lightning. This graphics card features a 384-bit memory interface, a core clock of 1070MHz with a 3GB of DDR5 VRAM set @ 5600MHz and powered by AMD’s 28nm Radeon HD 7970 GPU. Additional features include all-new Unlocked Digital Power Architecture that incorporates an Unlocked BIOS, Digital PWM Controller, SL-DVI-I, SL-DVI-D, 4x mini DisplayPort outputs, and enhanced 17 phase power design to boost overclocking potential to extreme levels and at the same time making overclocking easier than ever.
The MSI R7970 Lightning GPU reactor power supply module reduces power supply noise and to be able to keep the graphics card cool, it is equipped with a Twin Frozr IV cooling system with a dust removal technology. The dual 10 cm fans with Propeller Blade Technology generate massive airflow for fast heat dissipation while maintaining its quite sound. This beast is perfect for professional users like 3D animators because it can simultaneously run 6 displays. Unfortunately, there’s no word on pricing and release date yet.
