MSI's HD 7970 Lightning comes soon

MSI's king of the hill HD 7970 Lightning card is apparently coming really soon and MSI Europe has uploaded a rather neat looking picture of the actual card.

The new Lightning series card was already a crown jewel at MSI's Cebit lineup and some details have already been detailed including a fully custom PCB with 14+2-phase digital VRM, Military Class III components, new Twin Frozr IV cooler, DIP switches and voltage monitoring headers, and a Reactor Core add-on device with additional tantalum capacitors for extreme overclocking stability.

MSI still hasn't revealed the actual clocks but has posted a rather interesting picture of the card on its Facebook profile. According to our sources, the reviews should show up pretty soon, most likely as early as tomorrow, and should hit retail/e-tail shelves afterwards.

The price should be around €50 or so higher than the regular HD 7970, but that solely depends on retail/e-tail and the actual region.
