The MSi R5850 Twin Frozr II is a 1GB, PCI Express 2.1 graphics card featuring the 40nm Radeon HD 5830 GPU. It utilizes military-class components, dual 8-cm PWM fans, and dual 8-nm SuperPipe technology to ensure the unit never overheats, thereby allowing it to survive years of heavy use. It measures at 800MHz (slower than its peers, such as the Lightning), but it comes with Afterburner Overclocking software, which allows advanced power users to customize the card’s performance and voltage specifications. As for connectivity, the unit hosts a single DisplayPort, a single HDMI interface, and a single DVI input. Unfortunately, it only supports one monitor at a time. Additional features include DirectX 11 support, automatic BIOS updates, and HDCP compliance.
