Pictures of MSI's Radeon HD 6790

Details of AMD's upcoming Radeon HD 6790 cards have been leaking all week and now VR-Zone can offer you the first pictures of MSI's upcoming card based on the new GPU. We don't have too many details on hand, but what we do know is that MSI has gone for a different rear port layout that the Sapphire card of which pictures appeared earlier this week.

We presume MSI will offer a couple of different versions and the pictures we have are of the most basic model which we believe will be called the R6790-2PM2D1GD5 going by MSI's standard naming scheme. We'd also expect to see an OC version at some stage and maybe even a Cyclone or Twin Frozr II version. MSI has gone for a high-end rear I/O layout with a pair of DVI ports, a pair of mini DisplayPorts and an HDMI port. The cooler features three heatpipes and is of the same design as MSI uses on a couple of its Radeon HD 6850 cards.
