MSI announced the N285GTX SuperPipe graphics card, which brings to bear the Nvida GPU - GeForce GTX 285 and uses the 'SuperPipe' and Twin Frozr thermal design for increased thermal efficiency.
The N285GTX SuperPipe is MSI's first card to use SuperPipe technology. Heatpipe is an important component on a graphics card, which is responsible for transferring heat away from the GPU to the cooling fins for dissipation. The thicker the heatpipe, the more heat it can transfer, the faster it dissipates, and the better its overall thermal efficiency. MSI's SuperPipe technology uses special 8mm thick heatpipes that are 60% thicker than the traditional pipes, and show about a 90% improvement in thermal efficiency, according to the company.
N285GTX SuperPipe also equips a Twin Frozr dual-fan thermal design that cools down GPU and other graphics card components (such as capacitors or memory).
