The slew of NVIDIA
GTX 460 video cards that hit the market in the last month was impressive.
Everybody wanted as much of the pie as they could get, which was not surprising
given the level of performance that the GTX460 offers for the cost. On almost
every level, the GTX 460 was a game-changer for Fermi. Some vendors weren't
satisfied with putting a label on the reference design, and MSI is one of them.
The N460GTX HAWK that Benchmark Reviews is looking at today is a brand new
board design with advanced features no one else can match. They also adapted
their Twin Frozr II cooling design for the HAWK, and bumped up the heatpipe
count to four. To top it all off, the new version of MSI Afterburner can
control voltage levels for three diferent subsystems. This could be the GTX460
that all the hard core overclockers have been waiting for. @ Benchmark Reviews
