Hardwarecanucks.com was there as well:

So the MSI 6970 is shorter than the gtx580, but how does it compare to reference 6970s?

Amazing

I now have a reason to sell my HD5870... Too bad I don't have enough money to add and buy the 6970... Buess I'll keep mine then


That's a very smexy piece of hardware.

Also would like to know. Haven't heard a single peep about these cards in a long time and its been nearly two and a half months after they originally emerged. I've been itching to buy two 6970 Twin Frozr III's for Crossfire...
post #125 of 129
I am wondering too. I kinda want to sidegrade when it comes out/if I have the money. I most likely would go with the 6970 lightning if they shrank the PCB down to around 10.5inches. The 580 if they didn't shrink it that much.

New 580 Lightning details from CeBiT:

http://www.vortez.net/articles_pages...hd_6990,3.html

Whilst MSI do produce a small selection of cards that feature the reference cooler from the likes of NVIDIA and AMD they specialise in 4 different series of after-market cooled graphics cards. Cyclone, Twin Frozr III, HAWK and Lightning.

The card that took centre stage at the MSI booth was the upcoming N580GTX Lighting which has a 16 phase PWM design, independent memory power with Proadizer, plus CoperMOS for excellent power stability. It goes without saying that this card will be the ultimate NVIDIA GTX 580 variant. It will feature 1.5GB/384bits GDDR5 memory with dual DVI-I and HDMI. Dual BIOS switch with LN2 mode for extreme enthusiasts who want to break records. There are even V-Check Points located on the card for use with multimetre voltage reading.

In case you are wondering, the Twin Frozr III thermal design has dual 90mm PWM fans that are said to provide up to 20% more airflow than standard 90mm fans. It also features SuperPipe Technology for the best heat dissipation. MSI commented on the thermal performance of this card/cooler and confirmed that the results they had experienced so far were astounding, so expect very good things.





They did show off the 6990 and I'm sure you can read all the other threads on it.

So when is this thing coming out?

MSI better not be too late to the party because ATI is rumored to launch their next gen gpu Q2 2011.

No... They will be manufacturing their next gen models Q4 2011 which means you'll be able to use one in your PC Jan-Feb 2012. 28nm models will be manufacturing Q2(May-June) 2012.



No clue when MSI will release their 6990s though. Alex might be able to give a hint.

So HD 69XX will last until this time next year. Time for second HD 6950, maybe 2 more.
