MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti HAWK Video Card Review

Final Thoughts


The GTX 560 Ti HAWK does exactly what you would both expect and want it to do. Priced at $264 US, the card performs exceptionally well at that price point in both performance and also cooling and noise.


The design team behind the HAWK series of cards has, as always, done a great job and what you ultimately end up with is just a fantastic performing mid-range video card that's not going to bust the bank account open like the higher end Lightning models.


If you're looking for a GTX 560 Ti with great cooling but would like to save some money, the MSI Twin Frozr II version we looked at is a good option at $239. On the other hand, if you're looking for something with some more out of the box grunt and you can really have a bit of fun with, then the HAWK version we're looking at today is the perfect choice.


Something else that really stands out on the HAWK version of the GTX 560 Ti is the 950MHz out of the box core clock. So often we see MSI opt for a lower out of the box clock speed and instead give you the tools to make it the fastest card in that price bracket. Here today, though, we've got an exceptionally strong out of the box overclock so in the event you don't want to overclock you get a card that will not only perform fast out of the box, but also cool exceptionally well thanks to that Twin Frozr III cooler.


As always, MSI don't disappoint and we've got ourselves a really great GTX 560 Ti on our hands that people will no doubt want to get their hands on.
