New MSI graphics have Beefy Cooling, Big Ram... And Quieter Too?
MSI officially launched two new cards for CES 2014 in response to customer demands, a triple-fan R9 290X and a 6GB R9 280X.
Perhaps in response to Chris Angelini, who demanded a new cooling solution to reduce both temperatures and noise, and MSI has stepped up with a custom-fit sink and three lower-speed fans. We didn’t hear any screaming noises coming from the displayed configurations, but still look forward to seeing the noise data.
Next on display was a 6GB version of MSI’s famous R9 280X Gaming, aptly dubbed the R9 280X 6G. That’s twice the RAM of MSI’s original version.
