780 Lightning Drool Fest
Hardware

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.

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.

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.

GTX 780 Lightning Cooler

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.

MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning Twin Frozr V With Propeller Blades Teased

The teased picture shows the MSI’s propeller blade technology that would be incorporated on the new Twin Frozr V cooler which the GTX 780 Lightning makes use of. The new cooler is unlike anything ever made by MSI featuring a new and powerful PCB design and also the latest iteration of the GPU Reactor Module. The card makes use of dual propeller blade fans which would sit on top of a large densely packed aluminum fin array. It looks like MSI isn’t going yellow this time with their Lightning graphic card and instead making use of a silver and black color theme.

MSI Teases GeForce GTX 780 Lightning Performance – Fastest GTX 780, by Far!

The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning which was teased in a teaser video a few weeks back would arrive on 7th August. The new GeForce GTX 780 Lightning would feature the GK110-300-A2 Kepler core holding 2304 Cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPS plus a 3 GB GDDR5 memory interface running along a 384-bit interface. The card would feature a massive factory overclock and has a new backplate and shroud design which probably means that its making use of the next iteration of the MSI’s renowned Twin Frozr cooling solution, Twin Frozr V.

MSI Z87 MPOWER MAX
Hardware

Introduction

It has been over a month since Intel launched their latest Haswell platform for consumers. The Haswell chips or specifically, the K-Series processors brought some revolutionary new features for overclocking that were before limited to the HEDT X79 platform. Intel’s Haswell CPUs come with an Integrated voltage regulator “FVIR” along with enhanced BCLK overclocking. With the launch of Haswell platform from Intel, motherboard manufacturers popped up some really impressive designs and features for the new platform that were not available on the main stream platform.

Micro Star International or MSI as formerly knowned is a pioneer in the hardware department offering some of the most impressive and award winning technologies to date. With the launch of Intel’s Haswell platform, MSI launched three tiers of lineups for their motherboards – Gaming/Overclocking/Legacy. Each lineup is built for a specific range of consumers. The Overclocking lineup has three products in its tier, the flagship Z87 XPower, Z87 MPOWER MAX and the Z87 MPOWER. Each motherboard is designed to offer unprecedented overclock features to the users allowing for the best and stable overclocks possible with the K-Series Haswell processors.

Today, we will be taking a look at the Z87 MPOWER MAX motherboard which is sandwiched between the Z87 XPOWER and the Z87 MPOWER motherboard. Specifically, the motherboard offers better features and a much powerful power supply area to allow for better overclocks. But before we talk about the board itself, let’s take a look at the new chipset and socket which support the latest Haswell processors.

Games Hardware

SCB_Image_Screenshot_N1We’ve mentioned the imminent EOL status of the Nvidia 600 series. Yet even as it goes the way of the dodo bird, Nvidia is still using a few SKUs making them eligible for their promotional partnership with Ubisoft and their impending sly and sneaky Splinter Cell Blacklist coming to PC and console, around the last days of Summer.

Ubisoft encourages gamers noting they have worked closely with the GPU giant so SC Blacklist supports the most cutting edge features such as DX 11 Tesselalation, Nvidia HBAO+, TXAA anti-aliasing and surround tech. Now you have bit more incentive to pull the trigger on a new Nvidia GTX video card. Nvidia states, “…starting today, gamers who purchase a GeForce GTX 660, 660 Ti, 670, 680, 760, 770, or 780 from a participating partner will receive a free copy of Splinter Cell Blacklist Deluxe Edition for PC…” The operative phrase here being “participating partner”. So check with your favorite end card partner (EVGA, MSI, ASUS, Gainward, Gigabyte, etc…)

MSI has released a new teaser video of their upcoming GeForce GTX 780 Lightning graphics card. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning was displayed at the Computex 2013 event at MSI’s booth but it was hidden for visitors to view.

MSI GeForce GTX 780 Lightning Teaser Video Released

The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning teaser video talks and shows alot of thunder which represent the Lightning cooler of the card. The date being displayed of 7th August may be the launch date but a hint at what’s coming next from MSI as at the end the digits 780 “GeForce GTX 780″ begin to glow. So we may still have to wait a bit to see the launch of this new beast from MSI but i guess the card would finally launch in  August 2013.

So what does the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning brings in terms of specs? Its based on the GK110 core featuring 2304 cores, 192 TMUs, 48 ROPs. The card can feature 3 GB or even 6 GB of GDDR5 memory running across a  384-bit wide interface. It wouldn’t be a surprise if i told you that the card is a factory overclocked model with a custom designed PCB that features Military Class IV components, Digital PWM controller and an Unlocked BIOS. l Can’t say what clock speeds would the GTX 780 Lightning run at but if i was to make a guess then i’d probably say something above 1 GHz for core and boost clock frequencies.

GPU Overclocking Utilities Revisited – Part II

GPU Overclocking utilities have made GPU overclocking a piece of cake with the passage of time . In case you have not transcended the ‘geek’ world, overclocking, in layman’s term is running your hardware at greater speeds than it was designed too, although it greatly increases performance, but as a side-effect, also decreases your GPU’s life span. In the past GPU overclocking was extremely hard, mods were needed for the tiniest overclocks. Technology changed, and manufacturers started equipping better coolers, voltage regulator’s and what not, to allow your average user to overclock easily. It was made even easier with various utilities that allow real-time overclocking, which not only was safer, but easier as well. The utilities are come in handy, allowing one to set fan speed, core GPU clock’s, shader clock and various such meters to monitor the GPU.

With the passage of time, we have seen many updates regarding GPU overclocking. We have seen some great custom solution, liquid coolers and some manufacturer’s even putting in entire phase change cooling on a single GPU as of recently. At the same time, we have seen NVIDIA limiting their cards to reference design as a part of their Greenlight program by removing overclocking features or limiting voltage control to their flagship graphic parts. This stirred up alot of heat in the GPU industry but with time many consumers settled with the new program. The Greenlight program is the reason due to which we haven’t seen any GeForce GTX Titan, GeForce GTX 690 GPU in non-reference or custom variants. NVIDIA also limited manufacturer’s to offer their own custom dual chip offering which ended up the ASUS MARS III GPU getting cancelled as a showcase product only and the plans to another card under the ASUS MARS brand with dual GK110 cores getting washed out. AMD on the other hand still allows manufacturer’s to release any cards as they wish which was the reason we saw TUL made HD 7990′s before the launch of the official reference variant codenamed “Malta” in 2013.

MSI GeForce GTX 760 Gaming OC Edition GPU Unveiled

The GeForce GTX 760 Gaming OC graphics card would feature a GK104-225-A2 Kepler core architecture that supposedly boasts 1152 cores, 96 TMUs, 32 ROPs along with a 2 GB GDDR5 memory interface running along a 256-bit wide memory interface. The GPU runs at a base clock of 1085 MHz while boosts upto 1150 MHz which are similar speeds as seen on other non-reference models. The memory on some of the overclocked variants is clocked at 7 GHz while others still operate at the reference 6 GHz effective clock speeds, the GPU pumps out a bandwidth of 192 GB/s at 6 GHz and 224.4 GB/s at 7 GHz effective clock speeds.

GeForce GTX 770 Lightning
Hardware

MSI is preparing two GeForce GTX 770 models which would be featured in their Lightning and Gaming series branding. Both cards would feature the Twin Froze IV cooling solution and a non-reference PCB design which would boost overclocking and performance.

MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning – Designed for Overclockers

The GeForce GTX 770 Lightning has already been detailed and was even benchmarked a few days ago. The GeForce GTX 770 Lightning from MSI comes with a non-reference PCB that uses the GK104-425-A2 cooler that features 1536 Cuda cores, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs along with a 2GB GDDR5 memory that operates along 256-bit interface. From previous reports, we know that the reference models would be clocked at 1046 MHz core and 1085 MHz boost while the memory would be effectively clocked at 7 GHz which would give a good performance boost over the GeForce GTX 680. However, the MSI GeForce GTX 770 Lightning being a custom model would make use of a factory overclock out-of-box. Chances are that the base clock would be configured over 1100 MHz.

Z87 XPower
Hardware

Yesterday, we showed you a picture of MSI’s upcoming Z87 XPower motherboard suited for hardcore enthusiasts and overclockers. Chinadiy has unveiled a full preview of the motherboard which provides every single bit of detail  and features the Z87 XPower has to offer.

MSI Z87 XPower – Set New Overclocking Records

The Z87 XPower is so large in size that it makes the Z87 MPower MAX looks like a midget next to it. It features 32 phase power supply featuring all creamic conductors, fourth generation DRMOS and 330uF tantalum capacitors. These are part of the OC Genie 4 engine and Military Class IV design that provide unprecedented power for overclocking. The Z87 XPower features an 8-Layer PCB and several overclocking switches which can be used to adjust BCLK and FSB settings dynamically without entering the BIOS. There’s a Multi BIOS switch which would help in overclocking.

The CPU socket is powered via dual 8-Pin connectors while the electrical parts are seated beneath a large heatsink split in three parts which makes use of heatpipe cooling. The heatsink solution comes with glowing patterns and a large X Logo that glows on both sides in yellow color. The motherboard features a black and yellow design scheme, the second heatsink sits on top the Z87 PCH.
