Choice of Champions: MSI’s Lightning Graphics Cards
MSI is putting two new Lightning graphics cards on display, these being the HD 7970 Lightning and GTX 680 Lightning. The Unlocked Digital Power architecture’s Unlocked BIOS, digital PWM chip and improved power supply design greatly increases overclock ability. The exclusive GPU Reactor power supply back plate is a patented design that increases the power to the core, reduces power supply noise and enhances overclocking stability. For performance enthusiasts, the HD 7870 Hawk will also be shown. Featuring the same Unlocked Digital Power architecture, Military Class III components and Twin Frozr IV cooling, the HD 7870 Hawk stands head and shoulders above other cards in its class.

All New Twin Frozr IV and TransThermal Cooling
The Power Edition graphics cards on display supports MSI’s exclusive Triple Overvoltage function and improved power supply for increased overclocking potential. On the cooling front, Twin Frozr IV and TransThermal both incorporate the exclusive Dust Removal technology. The fans automatically run in reverse every time the system starts up to remove any dust build-up and maintain optimal cooling performance. The HD 7850 Power Edition (P/N: R7850 Power Edition 2GD5/OC) and GTX 670 Power Edition(P/N: N670GTX PE 2GD5/OC) cards are equipped with the Twin Frozr IV thermal design including Propeller Blade technology, dual temperature-controlled fans and SuperPipe technology for the best balance between temperature and noise. As for the HD 7770 Power Edition (P/N: R7770 Power Edition 1GD5/OC) and HD 7750 Power Edition (P/N: R7750 Power Edition 1GD5/OC), the innovative TransThermal design allows additional fans to be added as necessary. Apart from supporting Propeller Blade and Dust Removal as well, the single fan module can be upgraded to dual-fan “Double Airflow Mode” for increased air flow and better GPU cooling. Two fans can also be mounted side-by-side in “Dual Fan Mode” to increase the cooling coverage and reduce component temperatures.

MSI Unveils 3DMark for Windows 8
With its many years of experience in graphics card development and production, MSI’s professional R&D team has developed the Lightning, Hawk and Power Edition series. MSI has now consolidated its leading position through exceptional overclocking performance and advanced software/hardware technologies. Recognizing MSI’s achievements, internationally renowned benchmarking software developer Futuremark will unveil its next-generation 3DMark benchmarking software “3DMark for Windows 8” at Computex 2012 using an MSI GTX 680 Lightning to demonstrate all new test scenarios and MSI graphics cards’ superior performance.
