MSI ATI Radeon HD R4890 Cyclone SOC specefication

MSI now has officially announced their new R4890 Cyclone SOC, which brings ATI’s Radeon HD 4890 core towards 1GHz on its 800 stream processors and 1GB of GDDR5 256-bit memory. Since cooling takes some effort, there’s also a huge 10cm fan with four 8mm heatpipes to be found on it. That makes for the biggest fan on an HD 4890-based video card to date, and a setup which MSI claim is far quieter than rival systems. The company is also saying that the R4890 Cyclone will last longer, as it uses “military class” components; namely the SSC (Solid State Chock), which reduces high-frequency noise and apparently makes overclocking more stable, the solid CAP, and the Hi-c CAP. The latter both reduces power consumption thanks to greater efficiency and, MSI claim, lasts over 200 years at regular 65-degree operating temperatures. Whether you’ll still be using your MSI R4890 Cyclone in 200 years is obviously beside the point.
