MSI R5870 Lightning Review

maximum pc
14 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Factory overclocked graphics cards seem too good to be true. You get increased performance plus the manufacturer’s warranty. XFX’s Radeon HD 5870 XXX was the first factory-OC’d version of that GPU we reviewed (May 2010); that card pushed core clocks to 875MHz and memory to 1,300MHz (5,200MHz effective.) Now MSI is jumping into the game, and unlike XFX, builds a custom cooler onto its 1GB R5870 Lightning.
  • Pros: Factory overclocked with warranty support; custom cooling solution.
  • Cons: Pricier than the competition; limited success in actually overclocking.
