We would like to thank the following companies for supplying and supporting us with our test system hardware and equipment: Intel, ASRock, Kingston, Mittoni, Noctua and Corsair.


We're comparing the GTX 560 Ti HAWK from MSI against a number of other setups today which include the GTX 560 Ti Twin Frozr II, Palit GTX 550 Ti Sonic in SLI along with the GTX 570 and GTX 580 from MSI.


For AMD we've got the HD 6850, HD 6870, HD 6950 and HD 6970. We've got a pretty strong line-up on offer and it will be interesting to see what this 1000MHz+ GTX 560 Ti HAWK from MSI can offer.


Let's get started!

3DMark 11 is the latest version of the world's most popular benchmark.

Trusted by gamers worldwide to give accurate and unbiased results, 3DMark 11 is the best way to consistently and reliably test DirectX 11 under game-like loads.




Straight away we can see the very strong performance on offer from the GTX 560 Ti HAWK that manages to perform similar to both the GTX 570 and GTX 550 Ti SLI setup.
