After careful consideration and much regret I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

MSI Radeon HD 6950 1GB Twin Frozr III Power Edition OC Review @ Hardware Canucks

There are several things that makes MSI video cards unique and the most notable is the cooling solution comprised of elegant heatpipes and dual variable speed fans.  While the card doesn't have an external exhaust the overall cooling is exceptional.

The most recent graphics card in MSI's quickly expanding stable doesn’t aim for the headlines but continues a longstanding tradition of offering excellent performance at a reasonable cost. Their HD 6950 Twin Frozr III 1G/OC (yes, it’s a mouthful) only goes for around $260 but should be able to play almost any game on the market at its highest detail settings and mid to high resolutions.

HD6950 cards are the current sweet spot in the AMD lineup offering good DX11 performance with only a slight sting in the pocketbook.  Makes you wonder if these cards can be flashed to HD6970 status.
