Micro-Star International (MSI) has launched its new R6850 Cyclone 1GD5 Power Edition graphics card equipped with the latest AMD Radeon HD 6850 GPU. Apart from being the first Radeon HD 6850-based graphics card supporting triple over-voltage functions, the R6850 Cyclone 1GD5 Power Edition is equipped with a 6+1 power system to improve power supply quality and stability, MSI claimed.

MSI also pointed out that the graphics card's Cyclone thermal solution is able to reduce the GPU temperature by up to 14-degrees Celsius, while lowering noise by 4dB versus the reference design under full-speed operation.

MSI also introduced its exclusively developed P/S Switch for users to adjust fan speed between two modes, performance and silent.

Meanwhile, the R6850 Cyclone 1GD5 Power Edition is equipped with the latest Military Class II materials including Hi-C tantalum and solid caps as well as SFC high-performance chokes to ensure the best power supply quality and stability.
