The first pair of our charts helps compare the MSI GeForce GTX 760 HAWK and the reference GeForce GTX 760:
The MSI version is an average 6% faster than the reference card at 1920x1080 and 6 to 7% faster at 2560x1440.
The overclocked HAWK is compared with the reference GeForce GTX 770 in the next pair of diagrams:
As you can see, the MSI GeForce GTX 760 HAWK cannot beat the higher-class card even when seriously overclocked. The gap is small, however. The HAWK is 6-7% behind at the resolution of 1920x1080 and 5-7% behind at 2560x1440. In some games the two graphics cards are no different at all thanks to the MSI’s good memory overclocking.
The MSI GeForce GTX 760 HAWK is a hawk song for MSI’s GTX 760 product series. It is the uncompromisingly best version of the GeForce GTX 760 and is obviously the last in its series. Featuring military-grade components, dual BIOS, voltage check points, a pre-overclocked GPU and a highly efficient and very quiet cooler Twin Frozr IV Advanced, the MSI GeForce GTX 760 HAWK is a perfect mainstream product that is going to be interesting for extreme overclockers as well as for people who value silence.
We guess it can satisfy any demanding user and is certainly worth the price difference from the reference GeForce GTX 760. That’s why we recommend the MSI GeForce GTX 760 HAWK as the perfect midrange gaming graphics card for any user.
