MSI recently teased their upcoming Radeon R9 290X Gaming edition graphic card which has now been pictured in its full glory by GDM.OR.JP. The MSI Radeon R9 290X Gaming edition known as the Twin Frozr 4S OC graphics card would feature their high-performance Twin Frozr 4S cooling solution combined with a non-reference PCB layout.MSI Radeon R9 290X Twin Frozr 4S OC

MSI Radeon R9 290X Twin Frozr 4S OC Gaming Edition Graphic Card Spotted

MSI’s Radeon R9 290X Twin Frozr 4S OC falls in their Gaming lineup which was recently introduced and is aimed primarily towards gamers and enthusiasts. We don’t have any specific details on the clock speeds but its easy to say that the card would feature some sort of factory overclocks apart from its regular specifications which include 2816 Stream processors, 64 ROPs, 4 GB GDDR5 memory and a 512-Bit Bus. Power would be fed through an 8+6 Pin connector configuration and the card would be able to support upto 4-Way Multi-GPU functionality. Display outputs will include the regular Dual-Link DVI, HDMI and a display port.

As for the PCB, we are looking at a non-reference design featuring MSI’s top of the line Military Class IV features and components so overclocking won’t be a hassle on this red machine. For cooling, MSI tops up the PCB with a Twin Frozr 4S cooler that’s larger than the current Twin Frozr 4 cooler featuring a support bracket, backplate and two 100mm fans with propeller blade design pushing air towards a large aluminum fin array block.

The gaming world has been caught into the race to the 4K standard and now MSI has taken the first step to a Mobile 4k Standard; introducing the world’s first 3K gaming laptop.The best part is: MSI realizes that the 3k Resolution would be heaven-sent for professionals on the go and has thus also given the option for a Quadro Variant.

MSI GT60 20D-261US 3K Ultra HD Gaming Laptop and Optional Workstation Variant.

The MSI GT60 20D-261US (wow that’s a mouthful) is an absolute beast in terms of mobile gaming power. It will feature the GTX 780M and the Intel i7-4700MQ Processor, coupled with 16 GB of 1600Mhz DDR3L Ram. The exact resolution is 2880×1620 and the screen size 15.6 inch, though we have no information of the color gamut of the screen.However keep one thing in mind, such a high gaming resolution and only one Gtx 780m would mean you would have to compromise on the 60fps standard in some games (Crysis 3 at 3k with one 780m? Dream On). In our opinion 1080p/1440p/60fps is just fine for a 15.1 Laptop screen. Now onto the optional workstation variant.

MSI has just recently released its complete combo setup of the Z87I mother board and a GTX 760 Mini ITX Gaming Bundle. They will feature around 200 and 250 USD respectively (with variation across regions). Completing the combo should cost you about 500 – 600USD.

More Power than Next Gen in an even Smaller Package – MSI Z87I Gaming AC Mini-iTX and Mini GTX 780

The PS4 has the more power GPU of Net Gen. PS4′s Pitcairn GPU comes in at a decent power of 1.84 TFlops. The Mini GTX 760 Offers approximately 2.33 – 2.5 Tfops (The reason for this range is given below) as compared to the aforementioned gpu. Point to be noted here is that the 760 is a dedicated gpu while Pitcairn is on-die. Still couple this package with a beautiful bare bones BMW M8 casing and steam’s big picture and you have yourself a console (or as close as it can get anyway).

We have just learned some information regarding the MSI Radeon R9 290X Lightning. Not only that but its PCB has been pictured. The details suggest that the Radeon R9 290X Lightning will be an absolute powerhouse and will put to rest complaints that the 290X reference designs font fully utilize the Hawaii XT core.

MSI Radeon R9 290X Lightning will feature 2×8 Pin AND 1×6 Pin Power Connectors! – Rock Solid Power.

The R9 290X already runs at a very high core volt (1.25v) which is one of the reasons it runs so hot. Reducing the voltage to 1.15v can yield a temp difference of 10c even in the reference design. Now it seems that lightning is focusing on power as well, increasing power BUT giving it a more stable phase design as well (12+3+2). Naturally this unlike the reference design, Lightning will actually be able to handle all the heat. Not only that this would net a highly highly stable overclocking gpu since 3 power connectors are short of overkill. If it was any other gpu then the R9 290X i would be flabbergasted.

MSI Radeon R9 290X Lightning PCBOur friends over at Videocardz actually managed to get pictures of the PCB.

The entire AMD Radeon R9 280X, Radeon R9 270X and several Radeon R7 series graphic cards from several AMD’s AIC partners have been unveiled. Each graphic card features a non-reference cooling design from the manufacturer’s and the most notable are the MSI Gaming series, XFX Double Dissipation and ASUS’s DIrectCU based Radeon R9 and Radeon R7 series graphic cards. We just recently detailed the specifications of these models, you can get more information regarding them here.

XFX Radeon R9 280X Double Dissipation

Custom AMD Radeon R9 280X and R9/R7 Series GPUs Unveiled

The Radeon R9 280X is a Tahiti rebrand but would arrive at a price of only $299. The same GPU launched at $549 and with almost two years of experience at hand, manufacturer’s would now be able to offer some highly clocked models of the Radeon R9 280X GPU to users. The specifications of the GPU are virtually the same over the AMD Radeon HD 7970 including 2048 stream processors, 32 ROPs, 128 TMUs and a 3 GB GDDR5 memory operating across a 384-bit wide memory interface. The card would be clocked at 1000 MHz at base and 1050 MHz with GPU Boost while the memory would be clocked at 1600 MHz or 6 GHz effective clock speed.

The follow up is the Radeon R9 270X which is a Tahiti LE rebrand with 256-bit memory interface and 2 GB GDDR5 memory. This graphic card is supposedly faster than the Tahiti LE based Radeon HD 7870 XT due to faster clock frequencies though the other specifications would remain largely the same however we cannot confirm this at the moment.

AMD was supposed to make their Radeon R9 290X Battlefield 4 bundle go live today and its available on a few retailers including Newegg. Those of you interested in the next generation flagship card from AMD should know that only 8000 bundle packages of the card would go on sale for a limited time and those of you lucky enough to grab it know would be able to redeem a copy of Battlefield 4.

AMD Radeon R9 290X Newegg

AMD Radeon R9 290X Listed On Newegg For $729.99

The Radeon R9 290X bundle listed on Newegg has a pre-order price of $729.99 which isn’t exactly mentioned on the site itself but rather hidden inside the HTML code as found out by TechPowerUp. Newegg usually imposes a $30-$10 tax on their products so we can come to this conclusion that the card may end up costing much more than all of us have been anticipating, $699 US. This puts the Radeon R9 290X at $50 US higher than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780. Newegg usually don’t price their products at unusual rates prior to their launch since the follow the official pricing anyways. Though the high price may be limited with the pre-order bundle while the official retail modes would cost slightly lower around the previously reported $649 range. AMD may have a faster card but they are going the NVIDIA route if they actually price it higher than the GeForce GTX 780.

MSI A88X G43

The ‘Bolton D4′ A88X chipset based MSI A88X-G43 motherboard features the latest Military Class IV components and a 6+2 Phase PWM with OC Certified components that offer top quality and stability to users. The MSI A88X-G43 comes with the socket FM2+ which supports both Richland/Trinity and Kaveri APUs. Power is supplied by an 8-Pin connector while the PWM and A88X PCH sit beneath large heatsink blocks that offer cooling. The A88X-G43 features the blue and black color design which MSI has been using since some time now on their motherboards.

The A88X chipset motherboard comes with four DDR3 DIMM slots supporting upto 64 GB of memory with rated frequencies of upto 2400 MHz (O.C+).

MSI has officially released the much awaited GeForce GTX 780 Lighting graphics card featuring one of the most powerful and impressive design ever built for a graphics card. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning is equipped with the same DNA as MSI’s OC products featuring Military Class IV components and the Lightning exclusive Triple-Force architecture.

MSI Unleashes The GeForce GTX 780 LIGHTNING Graphics Card

he GeForce GTX 780 Lightning features the GK110-300-A2 GPU which comes with 2304 Cuda cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs. The card is clocked at factory overclocked specs of 980 MHz stock and 1033 MHz boost while the memory comes at a clock speed of 1502 MHz or 6 GHz effective. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning comes with the standard 3 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 384-bit interface.

Those clocks and memory would be factory overclocked and would obviously be good enough to run all of the current and upcoming games cranked up to the highest resolutions. You may think that the frequencies are a little lower than what the competition has to offer on the GeForce GTX 780 custom models but the overclock design makes up for it allowing users to push past the barriers restricted by weaker PWM designs on reference and other custom models. Not to mention the cooling that’s offered by the latest TriFrozr cooler.

With the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning, MSI has no doubt got one of the most impressive and the most powerful GeForce GTX 780 design out. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning launches tomorrow but CoolPC has got a preview ready for those who can’t wait to learn more about the performance and design aspects of MSI’s flagship GPU.

NVIDIA’s flagship GeForce GTX 780 graphics card has been out since three months and is currently the fastest GeForce 700 series card in NVIDIA’s lineup. Since its launch, NVIDIA’s board partners have released some very impressive custom models featuring enhanced cooling design, faster clock speeds and non-reference PCBs with powerful VRM and phase design.

I wanted to do a round-up of these cards since the first custom made GeForce GTX 780 was unveiled. But at that time, it would had been pointless since most of the non-reference cards were yet to be released and only a short list of details were available regarding them. But now, the entire non-reference lineup has been launched with the exception of MSI’s GeForce GTX 780 Lightning which would also launch in five days but we have almost every detail available regarding it so let’s do a round-up and now which GeForce GTX 780 model is the best purchase in terms of value, design and performance.

We already got a look at MSI’s gorgeous GeForce GTX 780 Lightning through a leak but it looks like alot of people aren’t pleased to see the new design of the graphics card. MSI has gone ahead and provided a much better view of their upcoming card which indeed looks much nicer in the new picture.

MSI Goes Triple Everything With GeForce GTX 780 Lightning

When the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning got accidentally leaked last week, the pictures shown off by the user didn’t had the plastic material removed from the cooler shroud which didn’t provide a better look at the card. The new picture from MSI shows off the new TriFrozr cooler from a top down view and its nothing less then a beauty. We have got to see some impressive designs with the GeForce GTX 780′s this round and MSI’s Lightning boats one of the most impressive design yet seen on a GTX 780 graphics card.

The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning features the GK110-300-A2 GPU which comes with 2304 Cuda cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs. While the clock speeds are still not known, we do have information regarding other features which the new card boasts. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning comes with the standard 3 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 384-bit interface. Those clocks and memory would be factory overclocked and would obviously be good enough to run all of the current and upcoming games cranked up to the highest resolutions. Of course those looking for in more memory can always opt for the 6 GB Titan.

MSI’s flagship GeForce 700 series card aka the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning has been unveiled by HardwareZone showcasing a powerful design that only a few GTX 780 cards from competitors have to offer. Built with the same DNA as of the MPower overclock motherboards, the GTX 780 Lightning offers great performance, a new beastly cooling design called TriFrozr and the ability to withstand massive overclocks with extreme voltage tuning.

MSI Unleashes The GeForce GTX 780 LIGHTNING Graphics Card

The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning features the GK110-300-A2 GPU which comes with 2304 Cuda cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs. While the clock speeds are still not known, we do have information regarding other features which the new card boasts. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning comes with the standard 3 GB GDDR5 memory running along a 384-bit interface. Those clocks and memory would be factory overclocked and would obviously be good enough to run all of the current and upcoming games cranked up to the highest resolutions. Of course those looking for in more memory can always opt for the 6 GB Titan.

As for overclocking, the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning comes with mighty strong PWM supply. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning features an 16+3+1 phase VRM along with the new DrMOS 4 being the next-gen MOSFET which is used to deliver the power for the CPU. MSI DrMOS 4 does not waste much power, stays cool and is more power efficient than other power saving solutions. Because DrMOS 4 is a 3-in-1 chip it delivers much more power with less components needed. This solution gives you the power to break world records. The card is powered through Dual 8-Pin connectors.

With just a week left in launch, MSI has released yet another GTX 780 Lightning teaser detailing the cooling fan design a bit more. The last pictures showcased a full black and silver color theme which brought us to a conclusion that MSI won’t be using the yellow theme on the next Lightning graphic cards, we were wrong.

MSI Goes Black and Yellow With the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning

The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning is built around the legacy of MSI’s Lightning “Overclocking” products with a new cooler design and sticks with the yellow / black color theme of its predecessors. From the cooler, we can see that MSI used two individual propeller blade cooling fans on the card, one is a 120mm fan while the other yellow fan is probably 100 or 92mm in size since its smaller than the black one. Now the thing to note is the close positioning of these fans to each other. This could probably hint at a third fan on the cooler shroud which would be teased at a later date in the upcoming week. This would be the first tri-fan cooler GPU built by MSI when released and the new Twin Frozr design would end up not only on the GTX 780 Lightning but also the next generation of NVIDIA’s flagship cards (Maxwell).

Additionally, We also have two images that were teased by MSI a while back, one shows the LIGHTNING logo embedded on the cooler shroud, i think it’ll probably be backlit by yellow color of the cooler. Next up, we see the MSI’s recently introduced reactor module on the back of the PCB. To note, MSI mentions that this is an upgraded version of the reactor module. The Reactor module is a small PCB board that increase current volume, offers better stability and reduces noise emitted by the PWM supply. Looking forward to see what the next iteration of this small device has to offer.
