Twin fans and 7+1 VRM

In addition to a couple of HD 5450 cards announced yesterday, MSI has decided to also introduce another far more interesting card based on the HD 5770 GPU, the MSI R5770 Hawk. The new HD 5770 Hawk has all the goodies that was previously limited to MSI's Lightning series, so this one might end up to be the quietest, fastest and most reliable HD 5770 on the market.

The new MSI R5770 Hawk features a slight factory overclock for the GPU which ended up working at 875MHz, while the memory remained at reference 4800MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory. MSI also completely redesigned the PCB and this card comes with 7+1-phase VRM design which is quite a boost from the 4-phase VRM on the reference HD 5770.

The card features MSI's Twin Frozr II cooler which has dual PWM fans and three heatpipes. According to MSI, this is enough for up to 13 degrees lower temperature when compared to the reference cooler. The card also comes with V-Check points for easy multimeter voltage monitoring and support for Over Voltage which can be raised up to 1.35V for the GPU.

The card also features "military class components" like Hi-C Cap, solid state chokes, and solid CAPs, all included with a single goal, to make this card as reliable and stable as it can be.

The price for the new R5770 Hawk should be somewhere around €150, but it is still to show up in retail/e-tail.
