MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti Hawk 1.5GB Pictured and Detailed

The GTX 660 seems to be an interesting card. The Hawk edition from MSI should allow us to really push it on LN2 too!

MSI's upcoming GeForce GTX 660 Ti HAWK 3 GB graphics card, installed in 3-way SLI configuration was pictured. One of the three was put through 3DMark03 and 3DMark 11. The picture reveals a card that looks similar to the company's GeForce GTX 670 Power Edition. MSI used double the memory amount, by populating the GPU's 192-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface with 3 GB of memory (2 Gbit x 12). The card is cooled by MSI's Twin Frozr IV cooling solution. It is clocked at 1020 MHz GPU core, 1098 MHz GPU Boost, and 6.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. The GPU-Z screenshot reveals more details.

While three of these cards were pictured in 3-way SLI configuration, only one of the three were put through tests. The cards were driven by a yet-unannounced GeForce 304.87 beta driver. In 3DMark03, the MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti HAWK scored 18,731 points, and in 3DMark 11 Extreme Preset, it scored X2,862 points. Both these figures are similar to those of a reference NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670.

UDPATE: New information suggests that 3GB as shown in GPU-Z are wrong. This is in fact an error in application. It occurs when cards are connected in SLI. Unfortunately, there is no 3GB version of GTX 660 Ti.

Updated news title :)

Netherlands rsnubje says:

Don't know who typed the original, but it's definitely not 3Dmark 06, but 03. Then the score is very very low.

Belgium leeghoofd says:

no matter the benchmarks, the scores are too low to raise my interest:p

K404 says:

3 of them at stock ~= one cranked 5870 in 3DMark11-X. If they're cheap and use almost no power, there might be a market

Someone breaking NDA here lol, 16th is when NDA is up.

TaPaKaH says:

don't MSI produce their own 3-way SLI connectors?

Belgium Massman says:

No. MSI always gives flex SLI bridges with their products.
