MSI Radeon R9 290X LIGHTNING Graphics Card


MSI has showcased their latest Radeon R9 290X Lightning graphics card at the CES 2014, featuring its flagship Tri-Frozr cooling and custom printed circuit board (PCB), designing it with a 12+3+2 phase power design for unprecedented cooling and overclocking performance for PC enthusiasts and overclockers. Specs-wise, the card uses the Hawaii XT GPU and has a 512-bit memory bus, which drives the 4 GB of GDDR5 VRAM installed on the adapter with 2816 Stream Processors, and a core clock of 1080MHz. The R9 290X Lightning will need two full 8-pin PCI Express power connectors to power it, but the board also has a third port, of 6 pins, for extra juice.

In addition, MSI also implemented a new Triple force architecture, with 3 basic features. One is Triple Level Signals, consisting of on-board LEDs that show real-time load in three colors: green for light, blue for mid, and red for heavy. In terms of outputs, it has 2x dual-link DVI-D, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs. Pricing info is still unknown at the moment.
