MSI Rolls Out Radeon HD 7790 2GB OC Graphics Card

MSI launched a new Radeon HD 7790 graphics card with 2 GB of memory, and factory-overclocked speeds. The R7790-2GD5/OC from MSI features custom PCB and cooler designs by MSI. The card uses a tall, dual-slot GPU cooler, which uses a 100 mm fan to ventilate a heat-pipe fed aluminum fin-stack. The PCB uses components selected by MSI, including SFC chokes, which don't whine on load. 

The card offers clock speeds of 1050 MHz core, over 1000 MHz core, while leaving the memory untouched. It features double the memory amount as AMD's reference design. Based on the 28 nm "Bonaire" silicon, the Radeon HD 7790 packs 896 stream processors, and a 128-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface. The card draws power from a single 6-pin PCIe power connector; display outputs include two DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. MSI didn't reveal pricing or availability.
