Introduction

It hasn’t been long since Nvidia’s last launch; in fact, it’s only been a few scant weeks since we saw the release of the GeForce GTX 760, a graphics card which managed to impress us with its convincing combination of gaming horsepower, innovative features, and strong overclocking. And with Nvidia partners pushing custom products into the supply chain, today we’re seeing the latest: the MSI GTX 760 HAWK, an enthusiast-oriented gaming card that comes with some very tantalizing features and overclocking potential.

Looking to capitalize on the attractive mid-range performance gaming market with a price tag of $299, the MSI GTX 760 HAWK looks to bring the features of its more powerful siblings at much lower price point. We also get the new GeForce Experience features here, such as ShadowPlay, Adaptive Temperature Control, and GPU Boost 2.0.

In terms of competition, the GTX 760 is positioned against AMD’s Radeon 7950, and we have high expectations of this MSI card, as the company has been touting its premium Military-classed components to extract the maximum overclocking prowess out of the card.

We got it on the bench and juiced up the voltages, looking to put up some screaming numbers. Did we? Hellya. Let’s take a closer look at the MSI GTX 760 HAWK and find out just how high it can fly.

    try play crysis 3 with that overclock, it will explode




    •  

      Perhaps. You could run the fan at 100% full time. However, as we often mention: overclocks will vary, and always be sure the OC runs “stable”. What constitutes “stable” can be debated certainly, and some people prefer a bit of instability, some prefer stable at particular temperatures, and some prefer suicide runs for benching. Neither is wrong, just depends on your preferences.

      But if you have excellent cooling in your case and run the GPU fans at full tilt, you could push this card very hard. That said, I’d recommend backing down the clocks slightly and sacrifice 1 or 2 FPS at most, in order to ensure full stability and better temperatures.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    So, its safe to say this is better card than Asus version?




    •  

      I’d say yes. There are minor differences, but based on our past history with testing both MSI and ASUS cards, the MSI card will be less bulky and a bit quieter. Overclocking ability might vary, though both are certainly very capable.
