With Triple Overvoltage Support to Break The 1Ghz Barrier on Air

Following the global success of the R5770 Hawk graphics card, internationally renowned mainboard and graphics card manufacturer, MSI, today launches the brand new: N460GTX Hawk. The card comes with Triple Overvoltage function supporting adjustments for core voltage, memory voltage and PLL voltage allowing overclockers to reach 1Ghz on air. The design tradition of the Hawk series continues on the GTX460 GPU including a 7+1 power design, V-Check Points, Active Phase Switching (APS), the Twin Frozr II dual fan thermal design and military class components. The N460GTX Hawk delivers unrivalled performance in thermal solution, power supply, stability and noise reduction.

World’s First Triple Overvoltage Function
MSI’s N460GTX Hawk is the world’s first graphics card to feature Triple Overvoltage Support. When used with MSI’s exclusive overclocking utility Afterburner, users can adjust the voltage of the GPU, the memory and the PLL. When compared to products of the same level from other manufacturers, the N460GTX Hawk offers superior overclocking potential. It is the world’s first GTX 460 graphic card to successfully reach the 1GHz* barrier when overclocking on air-cooling. Apart from triple overvoltage functions, V-Check Points 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 to the 4+1 PWM design on the reference card, which only supplies power up to 90A in graphic cards at the same level, 7+1 PWM design of the N460GTX Hawk 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
Built with 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 to the reference cooler, the Twin Frozr II can effectively reduce the GPU temperature by 18C and fan noise by 8.1dB to deliver a cool and quiet computing environment.

In addition to using All Solid Caps, which enhances overclocking performance, the card also comes with Super Ferrite Chokes (SFC) to enhance power efficiency by up to 10% and output current by up to 30%. The MSI N460GTX Hawk also comes with Hi-c CAPs with tantalum cores which improves the GPU power supply to increase the graphics cards overal lifespan as well as the stability of the GPU.
