The folks at Techpowerup have sourced images from a little birdy in Taiwan that show an upcoming HD 5870 graphics card on steroids from MSI which the company will place in its Lightning Series of overclocking-friendly models.

The images show the card in naked form without its custom cooling solution attached (whatever that may look like, we're not sure yet).

This card has two 8-pin PCI-E connectors for maximum power delivery and MSI has even chosen to give the card easily accessible measuring points for voltmodders to monitor GPU voltages directly. You can also see from the picture directly above that the card appears to have a 12-phase vGPU and 3-phase vMEM.

No word on a release date or pricing just yet.
