MSI Launches N560GTX-Ti Hawk Graphics Card

MSI is one of those companies that has little interest in simply slapping its brand on a reference videocard and calling it a day, and instead often opts to crank up clockspeeds and use custom cooling solutions. This design philosophy is underscored by MSI's new N560GTX-Ti Hawk edition videocard.

The N560GTX-Ti Hawk comes equipped with the latest Twin Frozr III dual-fan cooling apparatus featuring MSI's exclusive Propeller Blade technology. According to MSI, this results in 20 percent more airflow than what you'll find with conventional fans, the end result being GPU temperatures up to 17 degrees lower.


Other features of the Hawk edition card include an 8+1 phase PWM design that doubles the power for the GPU, and handpicked "Military Class" components. Combined with MSI's Afterburner overclocking utility, MSI claims this is the world's first GTX 560 Ti that supports voltage adjustment of the GPU, memory, and PLL.

MSI's N560GTX-Ti sports a 950MHz core clockspeed and 1GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 4200MHz on a 256-bit bus. No word yet on price or availability.

Looks really nice, I can see this being cooler then MSI's Twin Frozr II GTX 560 Ti. However I wish they'd put more then 1GB on this baby with today's games. (Palit did it.)

Still, a man can dream right?

2 Gigs of memory would be nice for one of these cards. MSI's other 560ti was really nice with low temps and low power consumption compared to a few other 560's. 950 is a nice overclock, I think gigabyte is the only other one who has a factory overclock of that much. Hopefully the twin frozr III keeps it as cool as the lower clock card with the twin frozr II.

MSI makes some nice equipment, it is also generally very stable equipment for a lil tweaking. So I like there lineup generally, and always consider them an in when I am looking. This one looks pretty darn nice with a great memory setup as well as very decent cooling. One question is anyone using a liquid option on a GPU? I might like to grab some tips as I have as of yet not used any liquid cooling.

Nice cooler but how much exhaust actually exits the rear and how much stays in the case.

I'm mostly certain that most of that heat is going to be blown into the case, very little of it will actually get exhausted from the rear.

Yeah thats the only problem with most aftermarket designs now, they all blow hot air back into the case. Im surprised none of them has figured out how to make a good aftermarket cooler blow most of its air out the back.

I believe MSI is also making a 570 TF III edition and I hope they change the power phase for it

I just love their "Military Class" Components that they are pushing.
