New Lightning strikes as heir to the overclocking throne

Posted March 16, 2012 by Kevin in News


Leading international graphics card and mainboard maker MSI is pleased to announce the release of the MSI R7970 Lightning, the new heir to the throne of Lightning graphics cards. Equipped with AMD’s new 28 nm Radeon HD 7970 GPU, the MSI R7970 Lightning features an all-new Unlocked Digital Power Architecture that incorporates an Unlocked BIOS, Digital PWM Controller, and Enhanced Power Design to boost overclocking potential to new heights and make overclocking easier than ever. In an industry first, the proprietary “GPU Reactor” power supply module reduces power supply noise and also boosts overclocking stability as well. To keep cool this beast, the MSI R7970 Lightning utilizes MSI’s new Twin Frozr IV Thermal Design equipped with Dust Removal Technology. The huge dual 10 cm fan setup with PropellerBlade Technology generates massive airflow for fast heat dissipation while remaining whisper silent. The two form-in-one heat sinks improve cooling for memory and the power supply module as well ensure structural integrity. The R7970 Lightning uses Military Class III components which have passed rigorous testing to meet Military Standard 810G, guaranteeing the card’s stability and reliability under actual use conditions.
