MSI Intros its New GTX 780 Gaming Graphics Card

While we might have seen MSI's GeForce GTX 780 Gaming Graphics Card at Computex, it hadn't been officially announced yet. However, now it has.

As its name indicates, the card is based on the GTX 780 part. The GPU core runs at a base clock speed of 954 MHz, with a 1006 MHz boost clock speed. The card's memory consists of 3 GB of GDDR5 memory running over a 384-bit memory interface at an effective speed of 6.0 GHz. External connectivity is handled by two DVI ports, an HDMI port, and lastly, a DisplayPort.

The card's cooling is taken care of by MSI's own TwinFrozr IV cooler. This features a nickel plated copper base, copper heat pipes, large aluminum fin stacks and a pair of 100 mm fans to cool the heart of the card. It also keeps the card at noise levels around 25.7 dB under full load, and keeps the core temperature around 67°C. Being part of the Gaming series of components, it is also themed in black and red.

Sadly, MSI has yet to give word on what the card would be priced at or when it would be available through retail channels. We imagine it won't be long, though.

    Is it just me or do those fans look huge for Twin Frozr?

    I think a 5-slot card would offer a much better cooling solution.
