MSI Building GeForce GTX 980/970 Graphics Card with Twin Frozr V Cooler

A 3D model of a certain graphics card has made its way to the Internet, along with some hands-on photos of the cooler adorning it.

The video card is none other than the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980, or perhaps it's the GTX 970? Either way, it's an NVIDIA next-generation adapter based on the Maxwell GPU architecture. This basically confirms the previous rumor about GeForce 800 video boards being skipped, and the naming scheme jumping straight from GeForce 700 to 900. The render shows a pair of 6-pin power connectors and a pair of DVI ports, plus two DisplayPorts (apparently). I assume some sort of HDMI adapter is bundled with the card, unless one of the two ports is actually of that type.

Anyway, the other photos attached to this post show the Twin Frozr V cooler that Micro-Star International is working on. There appear to be three nickel-plated heatpipes, or perhaps they're made of aluminum. It's hard to tell. As for the fans, they are radax spinners not dissimilar from those occasionally spotted on MSI mini-ITX video boards. There is still no word on the specs of the card itself (whichever it is). Hopefully there won't be any delays and the cards really do come out on September 19.
