Well CeBIT 2012 has started and MSI starts off with a bang. If you have been keeping up with the reviews of the newly released AMD 7800 series, you should know they are priced in the $250 to $400 range. You should also know they do not disappoint when it comes to performance. Well MSI is going to push the envelope with their Twin Frozr III R7870 and R7850 2GB GPUs.

These two great cards got a retrofit, so to speak, from MSI and their top of the line cooler. The Twin Frozr III brings down noise by 9 dB and temperatures down by up to 15C. This can either be used to overclock the MSI R7870 and MSI R 7850 up to 20% higher than stock cards or you can leave the factory OC and just enjoy the extra level of quiet.

No matter how you slice it, the MSI R7850 Twin Frozr III 2 GB and MSI R7870 Twin Frozr II 2 GB are going to be among the best GPUs the market. While I think the stock pricing on the AMD 7800 series is $10 to $40 too high, I can pay a premium for something like these MSI cards.
