MSI GeForce GTX 660 HAWK Graphics Card Detailed

Having recently tested the GTX660 Twin Frozr, the "normal" edition, I must say I'm looking forward to seeing what the Hawk can do. Just want to try LN2 on the GTX660 ...

MSI's flagship factory-overclocked graphics card based on the GeForce GTX 660, the N660GTX HAWK, was pictured and detailed by Expreview, earlier this week. According to the source, the card will be designed for about 15% higher core clock speeds than reference, backed by high-grade voltage regulation circuitry and the company's TwinFrozr IV cooling solution.

To begin with, the GeForce GTX 660 HAWK will ship with clock speeds of 1100 MHz core, 1176 MHz GPU Boost core clock speeds. The memory is left untouched at 6.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective). Under the hood is a 10-phase VRM that uses SSC chokes (low energy loss to noise), and IR DirectFETs. The card appears to use a high-end voltage controller that allows software voltage control, and consolidated voltage measurement points. The card draws power from two 6-pin PCIe power connectors.
