Resized ImageThe MSI R5870 truely is one of the most interesting versions of the 5870 graphics cards out there in the market. MSI delivers the card with a factory overclocking to 900 MHz and the entirely overworked 12 phase power design should provide the card with exceptional abilities also if you want to do extreme overclocking.

We'd like to thank MSI for providing us with the testsample.

As with all the HD5870s this one is also being empowered by a RV870 chip (codename "Cypress"). Furthermore the GPU measures 334 square millimeters and carries an astonishing 2.15 billion transistors. MSIs R5870 Lighning supports ATI Eyefinity which allows a user to connect three displays simultaneously.

On the following pages we will show you the strenghts and weaknesses of the MSI R5870 Lighning.
