MSI HD 5870 Lightning Edition

MSI HD 5870 Lightning Edition

Product image

A picture of MSI’s upcoming HD5870 Lightning Edition has leaked online. This PCB based image certainly shows some promise – Lightning Edition cards have always been well engineered high overclocking cards and this is sure to continue that tradition.

MSI are clearly opting for a higher power drain to help with overclocking potential as there are two 8 pin power connectors (rather than 1×6 and 1×8) and it also appears to be slightly wider than a reference card. While this is unusual it is certainly better than making it longer because that can cause some issues in certain chassis. The cooler is not yet mentioned but we would assume it will be a dual slot model with either a single big fan or two slightly smaller ones. More from CES in January.
