Built around the third generation GPUs from AMD with 28nm process, the new MSI AMD Radeon HD 7850 graphics cards features the highly applauded GCN graphics processing architecture.
This card - MSI 7850 TwinFrozrIII/OC edition, is already factory-overclocked to 900 MHz engine and 2GB of effective 4800 MHz memory that offers great performance than other standard models. The card is equipped with MSI's TwinFrozrIII Propeller blade that will generate 20% more airflow than traditional design while the operations of the card is 10C cooler.
Talking a little about AMD's GCN (Graphics Core Next) technology, one that is available on the HD 7850, is a radical new approach towards consumer GPU design. Based out on 28nm process, AMD has been able to fit in a massive 4.3 billion transistors into approximately the same space once needed to fit 2.6 billion giving the card the ability to push the limits of DirectX 11 gaming.
Graphics card tuning is one thing that all gamers would want and with Afterburner - a free utility by MSI and Rivatuner you can boost performance of the card and will be able to monitor all kinds of critical information in real-time.
Some of the other features of the HD 7850 are AMD ZeroCore Power Technology for efficient use of idle GPUs; AMD HD3D Technology for enhanced visual experience on Stereo 3D-capable desktops; AMD App Acceleration for beautifully rich and clear video playback when streaming from the web; AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU Technology to harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel for improved gaming performance; AMD PowerTune Technology for optimized clock speeds, etc. among others.
The output interfaces on the card include 1 x DVI-I, 1 x HDMI and 2 x Mini DisplayPorts. Maximum digital resolution supported by the card is 2560x1600 pixels.
