It’s the beginning of a new era. Radeon™ is gaming.

A graphics card is the single most important element for more FPS. As gamers, we understand that not just any graphics card "will do". That's why we bring you the best of the best. We don't want to bug you with noise and heat, but we DO want to give you more performance. With MSI GAMING series graphics cards you get just that.

GPUs built for the demands of ultra-high resolution gaming in single and multi-display configurations: get the most out of every square inch of screen.

Most MSI Gaming graphics cards come pre-overclocked out of the factory. This simply means you get more performance out of your card, without spending any time on checking for maximum clocks and stability. Pre-overclocked graphics cards simply give more performance and you don't have to worry about damaging your card, it is completely covered by our warranty!

ADVANCED TWIN FROZR IV
MSI's Twin Frozr has been the industry defining graphics card cooler. The first Twin Frozr kicked of the dual-fan trend and today MSI stays true to its dual-fan dual-slot design where others have to resort to less effective means.

The other part that the Twin Frozr cooler uses is a large Aluminium fin grid array that provides a huge amount of surface area for cooling. Heat from the GPU is transferred to the fin grid array by virtue of heat pipes with MSI's special SuperPipe technology. SuperPipes transfer heat twice as fast as regular heat pipes enabling an MSI GAMING graphics card to stay cooler than the competition.

Futhermore, MSI provide all new Airflow Control technology on Twin Frozr. This new thermal tech. is leading airflow to heat pipe by spcial deflector on heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to heat pipes directly. In addtion,This exclusive heatsink design is increasing the area of heatsink so that enhancing the efficiency of dissipation much more.

MILITARY CLASS COMPONENT
One of the deciding factors in performance is the quality of the components used. That is why MSI only uses MIL-STD-810G certified components for its Gaming cards because only these components have proven to be able to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking.

Customer Reviews
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 35 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Incredible performance for the price The card works out of the box and can play all the games I've thrown at it on ultra settings without even breaking 60 degrees - Arma III, Skyrim+tex. packs, Wolfenstein NO no problem. At the time of buying it was one of the top 25 most powerful graphics cards on the market, which for this price is ridiculous. If you need to upgrade in the future (probably not in the next 5 years with this card!) you could always buy a second one and use crossfire, which is fully supported. 13 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great GPU Amazing value for money perfect size for my elite 120 case, very very quiet built my pc to replace PS4! Best decision I've made in years 20 March 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Its ok now but it had issues First, does it perform well when it works? Well sort of, skyrim 1080p with 200+ mods 2k texture and enbs ~45-60 with dips to <20 in 1 or two areas. Get 60fps on shadow of mordor at high settings. The issues however are with blank screens of solid colour, it will work fine 1 second, the next it will go a block colour and a restart will be required, its very annoying. This is lessened by underclocking it and increasing the power available to it. The fact that i have to mess about with it to get it to work under normal conditions (and it still does it every so often) mean i cannot recommend this. 15 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by 2D Driver Issues This graphics card, like many these days, has different modes it steps between so when you switch from intense 3D gaming to just general web browsing it steps down to a lower 'mode'. Unfortunately on this card #and on many AMD cards# this causes a strange 'flicker' on the monitor a couple of times per minute. Took a lot of faffing to track it down but this card will definitely be RMA'd now. Almost £200 for a product that doesn't work properly under low-strain? Not acceptable. It's a lottery whether you get a working card or one with the problem and MSI have been very poor in their customer support. My first and last product from them. Very disappointed. 11 March 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great card very good performance Today this card arrived installed it easy and simple played Middle earth shadow of mordor on ultra i get minimum of 56fps but it stays at 60fps of most of the time im really happy that i bought this card upgraded from gtx 560 ti the card is quiet and it does good job my specs Monitor: AOC e2343f2 23' Full HD Cpu:i5 4460 3.2ghz Ram: Corsair 8gb 1600mhz GPU R9 280x 3 GB Motherboard: Gigabyte H81M-H PSU: Cx600 +80 SSD: Crucial MX100 256GB HDD: 1tb 06 February 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by So many driver issues Nothing but trouble with this card - months of back and forth with both MSI and AMD Support, BIOS flashes, endless suggested tweaks and changes... still can't get the issues resolved. Loads of people suffering the same problems on various forums, no-one has found a reasonable solution. Constantly "skips" and flickers in 2D (desktop, 2D apps, etc) when the card downclocks for 2D power saving which makes it completely un-usable for 2D. Suggested solution from AMD is to disable power-saving and lock the voltage/clock speeds to "gaming" for normal desktop use to prevent downclocking/powersaving, which is nothing short of ridiculous. I've been an AMD/ATI fanboy for years, big mistake staying with them for this card. Lured in by good reviews, ignored the widely reported driver issues... major buyer regret. Advise people to dig past the reviews before buying and do some research on the AMD Support forums. Review benchmarks for gaming only tell half the story - it rocks for gaming, but constant glitching and corruption while doing anything 2D really kills the experience. 24 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Everything I hoped and more I fell out of the PC gaming world for a few years (drawn to the Xbox 360 because most of my friends were on it) and desperately needed to upgrade my rig to play the newer games that I had missed like Battlefield 4 and Bioshock Infinite to name just a couple. I went with the r9 280x based on benchmarks and the awesome MSI edition boasted low temps and quiet fans. Boy does it deliver. Not only does it run Battlefield 4 (for me the most important atm) on Ultra with ease 35-100 frames ... probably 50-60 average but it seems like it runs pretty cool and its remarkably quite. Really like the design of the MSI frozor as well. Great card that wont break the bank completely. So far it has lived up to all my expectations. 23 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A great card for the current crop of games. Bought this as a replacement to a HD6850 that was starting to struggle on some of the latest games. Whilst it can't run everything at top settings at 1080p at 60fps (Crysis 3/Assassins Creed IV I'm looking at you) it gets pretty close. It's a quiet card that runs well in my system that contains an i5 3750K overclocked to 4.2. Power usage dosen't seem to much of a problem either as my PSU is only rated at 450W. It's at a good price/performance point as the next level up (R9 290) is just getting too pricey. 22 August 2014

Answer: 
When I purchased the card there was no promotion from AMD at the time, best place to find out if there will be any kind of promotion would be to check AMD's website and the participating vendors or manufacturers. However, I do believe that the never settle bundle was designed specifically from promotion of the HD 7970 series cards and is no longer being run.
