The first stand out point for the MSI HD 5670 is the fact that the company has opted for its own cooler. This means that compared to the reference card, we're looking at another dual slot version of the HD 5670.
The whole design isn't anything we haven't really seen before and if past experience is anything to go by, we shouldn't have any issues when it comes to keeping our GPU cool with this option.
Like the other HD 5670s we've looked at, we don't have any extra power needed like the reference version we looked at, but with the MSI one we do have some CrossFire connectors on top of the card.
In the I/O department we don't see anything new; a single Dual-Link DVI Port, DisplayPort and HDMI port round off the connectivity. This setup allows us to make use of EyeFinity which for me is quite a nice feature on these more budget orientated cards.
Carrying 1GB of GDDR5 like the other retail HD 5670s we looked at, we don't see anything that we haven't already seen from the model. The core comes in at the same 775MHz while the memory carries with it a 4000MHz QDR clock.
The piece of information to pay the most attention to here is down the bottom of the GPU-Z screenshot where you can see that we've enabled CrossFire and two cards are currently running together.
