We have already shown shots of MSI’s upcoming GeForce GTX 780 Lightning graphics card. This will be the top of the line card from MSI. After seeing the leaked shots many people were unimpressed with the new design. Because of that MSI has released a few photos with a better view of the card.
The photo you see above shows off the new TriFrozr cooler from a top down view. While it is not a super flashy design, the TriFrozr cooler should provide better cooling than previous Frozr cooling designs. The card will make use of the GK110-300-A2 GPU which has 2304 Cuda cores, 192 TMUs and 48 ROPs. We are still unsure of official clock speeds, but we are assuming the card will be overclocked. The PWM on the card is a 16+3+1 phase VRM along with the DrMOS 4 MOSFET design.
The TriFrozr cooling solution is first made up of three fans. Two of which are black and one that is yellow. There is a black shroud with yellow lightning accents. Beneath that is a massive aluminum fin array. From the photos it looks like there are seven heatpipes. The cooler is designed so the center yellow fan dissipates heat off the PWM and the other two fans cool the GPU and memory chips.
We will of course have more details on this card when it launches next week!
