MSI announced the all new R4600 HDMI series of graphics cards, which has native HDMI output, as well as digital 7.1 sound channels.
The new series includes the R4670-MD1G/512 and the R4650-MD1G/512/512Z models.
MSI's R4600 HDMI's entire series has native HDMI output to allow direct connection of your pc with hi-def TVs, monitors and projectors. The R4600 HDMI series also supports Unified Video Decoder (UVD) 2.0, so that the CPU is not decoding the entire digital stream itself, which helps lessen the amount of electricity used by the CPU and prevents lag.
MSI's R4600 HDMI series implements the Hi-c capacitors. Performing even better than the already high-quality capacitors, Hi-c capacitors have twice the life-span of their long-lived predecessors at the same temperature.
The MSI R4600 HDMI series power connector module also uses the latest solid state chokes (SSC), something rarely seen on cards at this level. SSC's not only help to extend the life of the card and increase stability, they also help prevent high electrical frequencies from creating a buzz noise.
Aside from full series HDMI support, Hi-c capacitors, and SSC design, the MSI R4600 HDMI series keeps its total power use to a maximum of 75W and does not require an extra PCI-E 12v power supply. It is made to fit almost any PSU ? including those with low-wattage power supplies. Additionally, the series equips a cooling pipe system with a slim design that won't infringe on other PCI-E/PCI space.
