Computex 2010: MSI Twin Frozr II Graphics Cards Keep GPUs Cooler

by Reads (1,757)

At Computex 2010 in Taipei this week, MSI introduced the next generation of their Twin Frozr graphics cards.  The Twin Frozr II series of GPUs take graphics chips from chipmakers like ATI and add “military class” materials to keep temperatures at load fifteen percent cooler than GPUs with reference cooling designs.

The snappy fan designs use twin 8cm PWM fans and what MSI calls twin 8cm SuperPipe technology.  The cooling system has five sets of heat pipes built into a nickel and copper base that transfers feat from the GPU chips straight to the radiator fins beneath the fans.

MSI is claiming that the improvements in cooling can translate to cards that are thirteen degrees cooler than competing consumer graphics cards in the market. Even though the cards are cooler, MSI says that they’re quieter, too, since the fans don’t have to work as hard.

The first products in the Twin Frozr II lineup include ATI’s Radeon HD 5870 and Radeon HD 5850.  There are no prices or shipping dates available just yet.
