MSI Mobos and Graphics @ Computex 2010 - Wooing the Enthusiast


Soaring to Greater Heights - MSI's Graphics @Computex 2010

Soaring to Greater Heights - MSI's Graphics @Computex 2010 

With names like Hawk, Afterburner and Lightning, speed or rather overspeed is one of the main focus of MSI's graphics cards in recent times. Together with its Twin Frozr II cooler, with its emphasis on cool performance, these two approaches summarize MSI's efforts in developing its graphics cards.

These efforts include having the best components onboard; again like its motherboards, military grade components are preferred for its enthusiast GPU offerings. Meanwhile, there are also features to enhance the power delivery for these cards, from a 15-phase power design to having dual 8-pin connectors for those overclocking situations where more power is required. Finally, the Twin Frozr II cooler comes with two fans, two SuperPipes (which are thicker heat-pipes than the average) to ensure better thermal performance than the reference design.

With NVIDIA recently releasing its GTX 465 graphics card, MSI has prepared a Twin Frozr II Golden Edition, and we also saw a liquid cooled GTX 480 among the graphics cards on display at MSI's booth.

 

We have finished with the components section of MSI's booth but stay tuned for more Computex 2010 updates, including the consumer electronics products from MSI.
