MSI R6950 Twin Frozr II Review

3D Mark Vantage

Price-wise the major competitor for the MSI Twin Frozr II R6950 is the newly released GeForce GTX560 Ti. As you can see in 3D Mark Vantage its definitely not very close in performance terms. Once again the AMD cards are so perfectly aligned that we have a sneaking, if cynical, feeling that it's been engineered this way.

 

3D Mark 11

In the less PhysX reliant 3D Mark 11 the 6950 does much better at stock than the 560, although the 300 point gaps between the different AMD cards in the performance mark, and 100 points in the Extreme Mark, sadly only strengthens our opinion that these have been deliberately built to a target, rather than as good as they can be. Of course this is no reflection upon MSI and the Twin Frozr II is doing its best.
