    MSI is readying a new ATI Radeon HD 5770 based graphics card with its new "HAWK" branding. Its design will involve overclocking headroom, and a cooler superior to the reference design in terms of cooling performance. The MSI R5770 HAWK is said to feature "Military Grade" components, and a cooler which looks like a shrunk version of the Twin Frozr II found on many of MSI's Lightning series graphics cards. Another interesting feature is its voltage measure points that pop out by two wires. These let you measure vGPU and vMem voltages. The PCB features just one CrossFire finger. Display connectivity includes one each of DVI-D, HDMI, and DisplayPort. The AMD Juniper GPU powering it is DirectX 11 compliant, features 800 stream processors, and 128-bit GDDR5 memory interface, with which it connects to 1 GB of memory. There's no word on the release date or price yet, but we expect it to be out very soon.

    All this for a 5770? Seems like this type of "enthusiast friendly" featureset would be better suited for a full-fledged 5850 or 5870.

    Seems overkill for a sub 200$ part.

    But that's the point. You're getting something that's overkill for a ~$200 part, for ~$200.

    Looks nice and there's a default cooler you don't have to change, for the minuscule amount heat that thing is butting out.

    I dont think thats important - theres already a HDMI & Displayport to choose from - & you can probably get a HDMI - DVI adaptor or something. plenty of connections to choose from not to mention DVI is slowly being phased out in favour of HDMI & Displayport

    That looks like a pretty nicely thought out cooler.(fins along the axis of the card, low profile tubes easy for multiple cards)

    The reference cooler is fine but at anything over 50% fan speed it can be a bit loud.

    The heat tubes dont look like they are pinched closed like the awful Sapphire coolers were.

    Too bad this didnt come out sooner

    technically you are right, the original card with 1 fan OCs a LOT and while it dosent run as cool as I like it is 1000X cooler than the 4870(which radiates off a bunch of heat).

    However its nice to see coolers begin to improve over the standard reference ones. The Sapphire Vapor X is also a better cooler(it would be nice to see a comparison of the 3 cards, Ref, Vapor X and MSI coolers)

    And there are a few of us that dont mind paying a bit more as long as we get more for our dollar..

    So, if you have more than one DVI only monitor, you have to pick up an additional 100 dollar DP to DVI adapter, right?

    Strange... Seems that they forgot to add wings to the design because that card was obviously created to fly at high speeds :/
    Seriously, looka it's gonna take off at any moment :laugh:

    I really wonder what the reasoning is to have only 1 Crossfire connection??? First it is XFX now its MSI.

    Another great product by MSI

    MSI really go the distance with their products, competition on all price segment levels by providing more bang for the buck is the best for the consumers. :D

    Interesting. I wonder who can o.c. better, this or the VaporX? And the price must be sthe same for a true comparison...
