The Card

Looking at the card itself, there's nothing too unusual here. We've seen the Twin Frozr II cooler before and you could easily mistake this card for one of the many others that are part of the Twin Frozr II series. Of course, that massive heat pipe configuration and dual fan setup is the highlight of the cooler and hopefully it does a good job of handling the HD 6900 core.

Taking a spin around the card, you're going to continue not to see anything too new. We've got two 6-Pin PCI-E power connectors at the back of the card, our two Crossfire connectors at the front and connectivity comes in the form of a Single-Link DVI, Dual-Link DVI, HDMI and two Mini-DisplayPort connectors.

Specifications

While this card carries with it the "OC" Edition tag, there's not really much of an overclock on offer which you can see below.

The 2GB of GDDR5 comes in at 5000MHz QDR which is default, while the core has only been bumped up 10MHz too 810MHz. It's hardly an overclock and I'm not too sure why MSI bother calling it an overclock.
