MSI's Radeon R9 290X TwinFrozr 4S OC Pictured

Image Source: Hermitage AkihabaraImage Source: Hermitage AkihabaraMSI has revealed its upcoming Radeon R9 290X TwinFrozr 4S OC graphics card, and it's a big one.

The graphics card, which features a non-reference PCB design is, as its name indicates, also equipped with the TwinFrozr 4S cooler. This is a bigger variant of the TwinFrozr 4 cooler, which allows the card to run cool enough to reach the full 1.0 GHz GPU clock speed. The card is powered by an 8+6-pin PCIe power connector configuration. The card also features a backplate.Image Source: Hermitage AkihabaraImage Source: Hermitage Akihabara

In addition to this graphics card, MSI is reportedly also working on a Radeon R9 290X Lightning card, as detailed in this story.

The MSI Radeon R9 290X TwinFrozr 4S OC graphics card is expected to hit the market sometime between late-December and early-January. In Japan the card will retail for 80,000 Yen, which translates to about $775. Ouch!

    Wake me up when these things cost what they were advertised to cost. Was so excited to get an aftermarket 290 once I saw the performance for the price despite the horrible blower. AMD better get its shit in gear soon or green team is getting my money (have had a new PC waiting on new GPU since October). I've been a diehard AMD supporter for years, but this BS bait and switch with the price is garbage.

    I get it, they want to gouge the litecoin miners or whatever, more power to them. But we better see some inventory shortly after so that the people who wanted to use these cards for their intended purpose (GAMING) can actually afford them.

    Yeah, I'm bitter.
