MSI R5830 Twin Frozr II graphics card tested

One of the companies that has received increased media coverage here at Guru3D is MSI, for many good reasons. Next to their regular products they have a development team in the VGA division consistently brewing on new ideas, implementations trying to push to the outer limits of quality. Over the past, say 18 months, things have changed a lot for MSI as their products where lifted from mostly reference design based products to a series of graphics cards with customized PCBs, special coolers, the world's best overclocking software allowing not just core and memory frequency overclocks, but also voltage adjustments. They stepped it up a notch alright.

So next to the regular products, you have read up on Lightning editions, HAWK editions, pretty much gear catered for the more enthusiast end-user. End yep .. you guessed it right, that would be the Guru3D.com audience.

Today's product is based on the new Radeon HD 5830. MSI again made sure that their version needed to be interesting, so they designed a custom PCB, used durable quality components and then added their latest Twin FRoZr II cooler. The end result is a product that looks just awesome, performs at baseline level, but overclocks just really well.

The Radeon HD 5830 is positioned in-between the Radeon HD 5770 and Radeon 5850. A product that would cost roughly 250 USD and performance wise would sit in-between the aforementioned graphics cards. So here's what ATI did, they took the sweet Radeon HD 5850, disabled three shader clusters and fooled around with the clocks a little.

Have a peek at what we test today and then head on over to the next page, where we'll look at the MSI R 5870 Twin FroZR II edition graphics card.

Radeon HD 5830 review

For us as editors it's sometimes baffling to see how quickly things can change in the hardware industry. ATI crawled back on top roughly a year ago already with the famous Radeon HD series 4000. By the time Windows 7 was released last year in October, ATI already had the first DX11 class product ready BEFORE the Windows 7 launch. And sure, while the volume availability was lacking, at least they had a product out there. In the time in-between then and now, slowly and steadily ATI has been traveling that yellow brick road and was able to fortify the DX11 class graphics card segment with a product in every foreseeable segment. Today ATI will finish the lineup with the last product of the 5000 series before we see respin products.

Again, read this well, EVERY possible segment in the market after today has been addressed by ATI, whereas NVIDIA still needs to release their first card. And to me that is just baffling...

So where then was there still a gap in the market for ATI? Well, in-between the Radeon HD 5770 and Radeon 5850 there is room for another product. A product that would cost roughly 250 USD and performance wise would sit in-between the aforementioned graphics cards. So here's what ATI did, they took the sweet Radeon HD 5850, disabled three shader clusters, fooled around with the clocks a little and that's what is being released today as the Radeon HD 5830.

The Radeon HD 5830 will in many ways be an extremely attractive product when it comes to performance and features. A product that many of you have waited on, and even many more will wait a little longer on, as this is a card that is going to be very popular once it dips towards 200 USD. Let's go check it out and meet, look at, try and test out the all new Radeon HD 5830.
