MSI today introduced the brand new MSI N460GTX Hawk Graphics Card to the great expectation of global gamers which is world’s first graphic card with triple overvoltage function and successfully challenges 1GHz under air-cooling.
The MSI N460GTX Hawk Graphics Card is world’s first graphic card with triple overvoltage function supporting core voltage, memory voltage and PLL voltage adjustments and is also the only model on the market that has successfully achieved 1GHz under air-cooling during overclocking.
In addition, the design tradition of the Hawk series continues on the MSI N460GTX Hawk Graphics Card, including 7+1 PWM power design, V-Check Points, APS (active phase switching), Twin Frozr II dual-fan thermal design, and military class components, to deliver unrivaled performance in thermal solution, power supply, stability, noise reduction and performance.
Just recently, MSI also launched N460GTX Cyclone series graphics cards, including the N460GTX Cyclone 768D5 and N460GTX Cyclone 1GD5 – both equipped with military-class components.
Operating with Afterburner (V2.0.0) overclocking software exclusive from MSI, users of MSI N460GTX Hawk Graphics Card can adjust the voltage of the GPU, memory and PLL.
The MSI N460GTX Hawk Graphics Card is the world’s first GTX 460 graphic card to successfully achieve overclocking to 1GHz under only air-cooling.
Apart from triple overvoltage functions, the MSI N460GTX Hawk features V-Check Points that allows users to measure voltage on the graphic card with just a multi-meter in order to capture various data in an overclocking session, thus making overclocking simpler.
7+1 PWM power design and APS technology
When compared with 4+1 PWM design on the reference card which supplies power only up to 90A in graphic cards at the same level, 7+1 PWM design of the MSI N460GTX Hawk graphics card not only supplies power up to 120A for the GPU to enhance GPU stability and performance in overclocking session, APS technology can automatically save the power consumption according to the GPU’s workload
Exclusive Twin Frozr II dual-fan thermal design
The MSI N460GTX Hawk Graphics Card features two 8cm fans, four heat-pipes with SuperPipe technology and a large-area nickel-plated copper heat-sink. The MSI-exclusive Twin Frozr II thermal design can effectively and efficiently dissipate heat produced from the GPU.
When compared with the reference cooler, the Twin Frozr II can effectively reduce the GPU temperature by 18 degree Cel and fan noise by 8.1dB to deliver a cool and quiet computing environment.
Military Class Components
In addition to All Solid CAPs which enhance the overclocking and high loading performance of GPU, the MSI N460GTX Hawk Graphics Card is also equipped with the SFC (Super Ferrite Choke) to enhance power efficiency by 10% and output current by 30%.
