Introduction

It feels like it's been ages since I've tested a video card. Unfortunately I was then quick to realize that it's only been a little over a week, and became concerned that 10 days felt like an eternity. To get back into the swing of things, though, we fired up the HD 6950 from MSI which has just gotten the Twin Frozr II treatment.

 

The HD 6900 series runs a little warmer than the previous generation HD 5800 series, so it's good to see MSI attack the model with the Twin Frozr cooler; in this case the Twin Frozr II.

 

Out of the box the focus has never been about a pre-overclock on this model; instead it's been all about the cooling and making sure the core is running as cool as possible while not being too loud.

 

Before we look at the cooler and card in detail, followed by its performance, let's first check out what's going on with the bundle.

Looking at the bundle, there's nothing too out of the ordinary here. What has to be said is that it's fantastic MSI has chosen to include a mini DP to DP adapter, something most companies aren't choosing to offer. Kudos to them for that!
