Conclusion

The MSI R7950 Twin Frozr III, as you can see, is more than a match of the Nvidia GTX 580. I’ve already established that in the previous AMD HD 7950 coverage. What makes the R7950 unique is the Twin Frozr III which not only runs cool, but incredibly quiet as well. And all the while it remains cheaper than overclocked GTX 580s.

The best part is, of course, the absurd ease with which the card can be pushed to its limits, giving an overclock powerful enough that the R7950 Twin Frozr III bests the AMD HD 7970 at stock speeds. Oh, and even then it still remains cooler and quieter than the HD 7970.

        Thanks :) Could you tell us where you buy the stuff from in Dubai? Its usually cheaper than Alain Centre.

          Al Ain Centre is usually the best bet as many shops there stock MSI products. Additionally you can look at our Where to Buy section for each product (on the top) and you’ll see many retailers there. 

          Don’t be surprised if you don’t find it right now in the market, as the card is still relatively new.

    What is the lowest fan speed RPM the card can be set to in idle mode?

    Do you write actual UAE prices or convert them to AED from USD? Still can’t find any place in DXB with your mentioned price.
