MSI’s Radeon HD 4870 X2 is ready and should be available very soon. Radeon HD 4870 X2 is based on R700 GPU (2xRV770) and features the monstrus number of 1600 stream processors with 2Gb of GDDR5 memory.
This graphics card by MSI, is equiped with MSI’s new cooler using Hybrid Freezer technology. It offers a total silence in idle (normal Windows operation) as well as in loading (during intensive gaming). This card has 1Gb of onboard memory that can help when the gamer wants to play at ultra high resolution (but in that case, the gameplay is limited by the power of the 9600 GT so ultra high res gaming is not an good example of application of 1Gb of memory). Anyway, the cooler is the key of this GeForce and temperature stays around 46 degrees in idle and does not exceed 65 degrees in full load.
MSI GeForce 9600 GT Hybrid Freezer has the following features:
- GPU: G94
- stream processors: 64
- core clock: 650MHz
- shader clock: 1625MHz
- memory clock: 900MHz
- memory: 1Gb DDR3 / 256-bit
- DirectX 10 / OpenGL 2.1 / Shader Model 4.0

FiringSquad has reviewed the MSI’s Radeon HD 4850 that runs significantly cooler than ATI’s stock Radeon 4850 reference design. To reach that goal and offer maximum cooling performance, MSI uses four copper heatpipes for cooling the RV770 GPU. With their copper design, the heatpipes are capable pulling quite a bit of heat off the GPU. This heat must then be dispersed in order to prevent the heatpipes themselves from becoming a hotspot on the graphics card. To accomplish this, MSI employs a dual-slot aluminum heatsink.
Main features of the Radeon HD 4850:
- GPU: RV770
- 800 stream processors
- ROPs: 16
- Transistors: 956 million
- Memory: 512Mb GDDR3 256-bit
- core clock: 625MHz
- memory clock: 1.0GHz
- DirectX 10 / Shader Model 4.1
- OpenGL 2.1

The weird thing is FiringSqaud has used the Catalyst 7.7 to test this Radeon. Mistake???
