What I like about the Power Series is that it's the series between the HAWK and Lightning ones. It's not aimed at those killer mid-range cards we've seen from AMD and NVIDIA lately, nor is it only for the top single GPU cards like the GTX 580 and HD 6970.
Like we mentioned in the introduction, it sits at that point where people want to spend a bit more money than the mid-range cards that are part of the HAWK series, but don't want to blow the bank with the high end Lightning cards that concentrate on those top models.
What the Power Edition brings to the table is the fun of adjusting the voltage in three areas; Core, Memory and AUX without breaking the bank. The ability to just adjust those little extra things like Memory and AUX along with quite often getting slightly more voltage headroom on the core means that you're able to overclock more than the competition where only the core can be adjusted.
Combine that extra overclocking ability with the fact you're using MSIs top GPU cooler, the Twin Frozr III, and you've got a really great HD 6950 here. It's a perfect choice for people who are looking for a dual slot card that's going to overclock strong and just offer strong performance overall.
The HD 6950 2GB Twin Frozr III Power Edition is another great card from MSI and this is just a fantastic series which like the HAWK and Lightning really targets a clear market. This is one dual slot HD 6950 that people will no doubt be keeping an eye on.
