MSI debuts AMD R6850 and R6870 video cards

With the latest video cards from AMD hitting the market late last week, it’s natural that we see more and more makers offering up their own branded version of those new video cards. MSI has pulled the wraps off its own R6850 and R6870 video cars for gamers to peruse.

The new video cards both support stereoscopic 3D and Eyefinity multiple displays. The cards also use the exclusive MSI Afterburner software for adjusting the speed of the fans and setting saved profiles. All of the capacitors on the cards are solid state and the video cards are designed for performance and power.

MSI puts DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 1.4a ports on the cards and they both support 7.1 channel sound. The 6850 has a special 9cm fan and direct heat pipe tech for heat dissipation and better thermal performance. Pricing is unannounced at this time.
