MSI Radeon HD 6950 1GB Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC Review @ HardwareCanucks

MSI Radeon HD 6950 1GB Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC Review
MSI has put a serious amount of effort into increasing their exposure within the gaming community. Their Z68 motherboards were among the first to include support for PCI-E 3.0, the GTX 580 Lightning and follow up Lightning Extreme Edition were two of the most impressive cards we reviewed all year and their notebooks continue to offer excellent performance in an appealing package. But most important of all, the prices for most of their products have continually undercut those of the competition without sacrificing quality.

The most recent graphics card in their quickly expanding stable doesn’t aim for the headlines but continues a tradition of offering excellent performance at a reasonable cost. Their HD 6950 Twin Frozr III 1G/OC (yes, it’s a mouthful) only goes for around $260 but should be able to play almost any game on the market at high detail settings and mid to high resolutions. You may remember the HD 6950 1GB as being one of our all time favorite budget friendly gaming cards and MSI seems to have made it all that much better by adding their highly regarded Twin Frozr III heatsink and a healthy dose of overclocking.
