Looking at the card itself, there's nothing that you haven't seen before with the Twin FrozrII cooler being used on a few of the recent MSI cards we've looked at. The biggest difference with this card compared to other HD 5830s is the decision for MSI to drop the second Dual-Link DVI connector. Of course Eyefinity is still supported, but instead of using two DVI monitors you'll have to use HDMI connectivity or buy an inexpensive HDMI to DVI adapter.

Specifications

Out of the box the HD 5830 from MSI carries the default clocks; this means we've got an 800MHz core and the 1GB of GDDR5 memory coming in at an even 4000MHz QDR.

Spending a bit of time in Afterburner, we moved the core up 75MHz to 875MHz and the memory clock from the standard 4000MHz QDR to a very impressive 4760MHz QDR.

Some nice increases indeed which should hopefully give us a bit of extra punch when it comes to performance in our benchmarks today.
