Her er den officielle pressemeddelelse fra MSI:
After launching the highly succesful MSI R5800 and MSI R5700 series, MSI today announces the most powerful graphics card available: the R5970-P2D2G. This card features dual 40nm GPUs to provide the best performance in today’s most demanding games. Powered by 3200 stream processors (SPs) and ultrafast 2GB 512-bit GDDR5 memory, the card fully supports the DirectX 11 en OpenGL 3.2 standards. Additionally the card features overvoltage support via MSI Afterburner overclocking software and offers support for AMD-exclusive audio-visual technologies like ATI Eyefinity, Powerplay and CrossFireX. Without a doubt, this card will be the first choice of performance enthusiasts.
MSI’s Afterburner software is the most advanced graphics card overclocking software available today. Besides offering basic frequency adjustment and system monitoring, Afterburner also allows the user to adjust the voltage of the MSI graphics card. It’s the easiest way to adjust the circuit board in order to provide a higher voltage to the GPU.
To improve the cards stability, MSI’s R5970-P2D2G comes with military class components: Hi-c CAPs, solid state capacitors and Solid State Chokes (SSC). With these ultra high-grade components, the R5970-P2D2G maintains an incredible level of stability. Additionally, these SSCs eliminate unwanted buzz noise during heavy load and ensure a longer product life.
MSI’s new R5970-P2D2G graphics card is equipped with dual 40nm GPUs to provide the best performance for this generation of graphics cards. The 40nm architecture improves processing efficiency by increasing the usability of all available transistors, thus allowing for lower temperatures and less power consumption.
MSI R5970-P2D2G supports all the latest graphical standards including DirectX 11 (Shader Model 5.0) and OpenGL 3.2. Gamers can take advantage of the powerful specifications for an astonishing experience in the newest games under Windows 7 O/S.
