Twin Frozr IV Thermal DesignMSI's Twin Frozr is the industry defining graphics card cooler. The first Twin Frozr kicked off the dual-fan trend and today MSI stays true to its dual-fan dual-slot design where others have to resort to less effective methods. The Twin Frozr cooler uses a large Aluminium fin grid array that provides a huge amount of surface area for cooling. Heat from the GPU is transferred to the fin grid array by virtue of heat pipes with MSI's special SuperPipe technology. SuperPipes transfer heat twice as fast as regular heat pipes enabling an MSI GAMING graphics card to stay cooler than the competition. Furthermore, MSI provide all new Airflow Control technology on Twin Frozr IV. This new thermal technology leads the airflow to the heat pipes via a special deflector on the heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to heat pipes directly. In addition, This exclusive heatsink design increases the area of the heatsink enhancing the heat dissipation.
Military Class 4 ComponentsOne of the deciding factors in performance is the quality of the components used. That is why MSI only uses MIL-STD-810G certified components for its Gaming cards because only these components have proven to be able to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking.
Gaming AppTune up core clock speed and fan speed with 'Gaming Mode' for the ultimate gaming performance. Switch to 'Eco Mode' to reduce core clock speed and fan speed for a discrete setting that reduces noise and power consumption. Switch to 'Default Mode' for factory settings and performance.
Predator AppPredator is a built-in screen and video capturing tool which captures your screen as still images or videos with the push of a button and allows you to capture and record your coolest, goofiest and most awesome gaming moments on your PC!
MSI Afterburner UtilityMSI Afterburner has quickly become the favourite overclocking software for media, overclockers and end-users. Because of its simple interface, it's easy to learn, but it packs a lot of powerful features like an integrated benchmark utility called Kombustor that can check your system performance in benchmarking mode, or run as a stability test.
AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) TechnologyAvailable on select, high-performance AMD Radeon R series and AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics products, the visionary Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture is a radically new approach to the design of a consumer GPU, making it a top choice for gamers who expect the best. Designed to push not only the boundaries of DirectX 11 gaming, the GCN Architecture is also AMD's first design specifically engineered for general computing. Equipped with up to 32 compute units (2048 stream processors), each containing a scalar coprocessor, AMD's 28nm GPUs are more than capable of handling workloads-and programming languages-traditionally exclusive to the processor. Coupled with the dramatic rise of GPU-aware programming languages like C++ AMP and OpenCL, the GCN Architecture is truly the right architecture for the right time.
Mantle OptimisationThere’s optimisation, and then there’s Mantle. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of the Graphics Core Next architecture to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality. It’s a game-changing innovation developed by AMD.
AMD ZeroCore Power TechnologyAMD ZeroCore Power Technology leverages AMD's leadership in notebook power efficiency to grant our desktop GPUs the ability to power down when your monitor is off, also known as the "long idle state." This is great for those times when you've stepped away from your PC to take a call, watch TV, or pop down to the store. Furthermore, AMD ZeroCore Power allows additional GPUs in an AMD CrossFire technology configuration to shut off when they're not in use-even the fan stops spinning! An AMD-exclusive technology, AMD ZeroCore Power ensures that unused or idle GPUs are as efficient as possible. Even the most hardcore gamer with an AMD CrossFire multi-gpu configuration benefits from AMD ZeroCore Power. Unused or idle GPUs are shut down until needed to conserve power.
AMD HD3D TechnologyAMD HD3D Technology is supported by an advanced and open ecosystem that, in conjunction with specific AMD hardware and software technologies, enables 3D display capabilities for many PC applications and experiences. Your PC has evolved, offering unprecedented amount of games, photos and movies for you to play, watch, design, create, share and download in 3D. With the arrival of the latest in 3D technology you can now enjoy an enhanced visual experience on Stereo 3D-capable desktops and notebooks powered by AMD HD3D Technology.
AMD App AccelerationGroundbreaking AMD App Acceleration technology helps you to enjoy beautifully rich and clear video playback when streaming from the web. Take in your favorite movies in stunning, stutter-free HD quality. Run multiple applications smoothly at maximum speed. Enjoy lightning fast game play and realistic physics effects
AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU TechnologyAMD CrossFireX technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFireX harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance. With AMD CrossFireX-certified AMD Radeon HD graphics cards ready for practically every budget and the flexibility to combine two, three or four GPUs, AMD CrossFireX is the perfect multi-GPU solution for those who demand the best
AMD PowerPlay TechnologyAMD PowerPlay technology is designed to enable power saving profiles that help reduce power consumption when the GPU is idle or in minimal use in comparison to previous AMD products. This dynamic power management enables the GPU to automatically adjust power between low, medium and high states for a tremendous power efficiency advantage. For example, when receiving and composing emails little demand is on the GPU and it runs in a low state, whereas when gaming, there is high demand on the graphics engine and the GPU runs in a high state.
AMD PowerTune TechnologyAMD PowerTune technology helps deliver higher performance that is optimized to the thermal limits of the GPU by dynamically adjusting the clock during runtime based on an internally calculated GPU power assessment. AMD PowerTune technology also improves the mechanism to deal with applications that would otherwise exceed the GPU's TDP. By dynamically managing the engine clock speeds based on calculations which determine the proximity of the GPU to its TDP limit, AMD PowerTune allows for the GPU to run at higher nominal clock speeds in the high state than otherwise possible
AMD Eyefinity 2.0 Multi-Display TechnologyThe next generation of AMD Eyefinity technology is here, featuring all-new support for stereo 3D, universal bezel compensation and brand new display configurations.
