MSI R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition Review

Rating: 8.5.

MSI and ASUS have been producing some of the finest video cards this year, and today we are reviewing the R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edtion card which features the latest Twin Frozr cooler with dual fans. This design utilises Propeller Blade Technology for 20% more airflow when compared against a traditional implementation.

MSI claim that this design helps ensure that the card runs with 11% lower temperatures and with almost 14dBa reduced noise emissions.

Additionally the card supports triple over voltage support via the MSI Afterburner tool (Riva Tuner) and it also features a very capable 6+2 phase power delivery system for improved overclocking potential and stability.

    Their coolers are really very good, we get a very low return rate on these cards.

  • Davis

    Good deal on OCUk for that card. especially with two free, and very tasty games.

    The big question is, with AMD about to release a new range of cards (well in a few months at least), is anyone opting for one of these now?

  • Frank

    Really good looking card as usual from MSI. I never see them listed in many sites. Do scan even stock them?

  • Thomas

    I have one of these and its very good. I have problems with overclocking it however and I had hoped you might do better. mine is limited to 910mhz and it crashes 🙁

    Quite a sexy card. Can’t wait until MSI will realease TwinFrozr III as retail cooler.

    A very good and complete review. Just one question. Due to a discusion on the dutch site hardware.info it became clear that using the latest version of the drivers has a significant effect on the results. I would like to know if the results of the other cards as used in your graphs are also obtained using the same driver versions. If these are older results with older drivers then it might be a good idea to mention the driver version / date with the different test scores for the different cards.

    I just like to mention that i frequently use this site to keep abreast of al the latest tech news. Keep up the good work.
