MSI has yet again teased another picture of their upcoming GeForce GTX 780 Lightning graphics card on their Facebook page. The GeForce GTX 780 Lightning would be the flagship GeForce 700 series card from MSI with a powerful cooling and PCB design.

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.

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.

So as far as the performance is concerned, the GeForce GTX 780 Lightning was tested in 3DMark 11 by MSI’s in-house overclocker “Elmor” who broke 20,195 Performance points which is pretty impressive for a GTX 780 making it the fastest in the world. MSI themselves call it the fastest GeForce GTX 780 in the world so far but not mentioned whether these are the stock or overclocked results. The price would be set at a premium range since this an absolute premium card by MSI so expect around $700 + pricing.
