The Twin BIOS design and Twin Frozr IV advanced thermal design boost overclocking potential.
August 12, 2013
Taiwan-based motherboard and graphics card maker Micro-Star International Co. Ltd. (MSI) has announced the release of the new MSI N760 Hawk graphics card. The graphics card’s new Twin BIOS and enhanced power design not only improve overclocking performance, but also bring extreme overclocking closer to home—whether you’re a beginner or a veteran.
The Twin BIOS design consists of two specialized separate BIOS chips, one optimized for general gaming use and one configured for extreme overclocking. The enhanced power design improves on the regular GTX 760 design by beefing up the amount of power that can be delivered and the quality and efficiency of the components used. This allows more performance to be extracted from the GTX 760 Hawk.
The MSI N760 Hawk is equipped with the next-generation Twin Frozr IV advanced thermal design. Besides the 8 mm Super Pipe, propeller blade technology, and dual 10 cm temperature-controlled fans, proprietary Airflow Control Technology and Dust Removal Technology significantly improve cooling capacity and run fans in reverse for 30 seconds every time the system is started. This is designed to help remove dust from the heat sink fan module and optimize the cooling performance.
Two form-in-one heat sinks aid in cooling the memory and power components while balancing the thermal conditions of the graphics card and adding extra ruggedness. The next-generation cooling design of the N760 Hawk allows it to run 10 °C cooler and 12.48 dB quieter than the reference design.
Using the latest Military Class 4 components, the N760 Hawk has been certified by an independent laboratory to be compliant with MIL-STD-810G military standards.
The overclocking tools are designed specifically for overclocking enthusiasts. The V-Check Point monitors GPU, memory, and VRM voltages with a multi-meter, while MSI’s proprietary afterburner overclocking utility supports triple overvoltage to help overclocking enthusiasts master their card.
