MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II Review
The AMD 6950 was a bit of a disappointment when we first reviewed it. It didn't really inspire us in the same way that the earlier series of Radeon cards have.
Of course as the second best model in their range we wouldn't expect bleeding-edge performance, but it was just very average.
In an attempt to solve the issues of the reference card MSI have married their brilliant Twin Frozr II cooler to the AMD chip and it's time for us to see how it performs.
The MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II comes with all the normal AMD bells and whistles such as Eyefinity, Avivo and new to the 6 series, 3D support.
