When Nvidia launched the Kepler-based 600 series graphics cards, it represented a revolution of sorts from the previous generation cards, with engineering innovations and features to improve not only gaming horsepower but also power efficiency and temperatures. Nvidia succeeded quite well, proving popular with gamers and enthusiasts alike. Kepler was, quite simply, a resounding success. The question later became: where to go from there?
Indeed, you’re only as good as your last success, and today we’re looking at a custom implementation of the impressive GeForce GTX 780 from MSI. This particular variant is called the GTX 780 Twin Frozr Gaming.
We’ve been impressed in the past with MSI Twin Frozr graphics cards, and while this new card is technically referred to as the “Gaming” model, there is history here with the Twin Frozr lineage. We suspect this new model, regardless of its name, should be no different (at least we hope that’s the case). It’s constructed to keep temperatures in check during heavy fragging sessions, and with dual fans and copper heatpipes set against sexy styling, it seems to have the stuff to make enthusiasts drool.
Looks like a great card, but the proof is on the bench, so let’s get to it with the MSI GTX 780 Twin Frozr Gaming.
