MSI N460GTX Hawk Review

» Discuss this article (6)


Power Consumption of the system will be measured in both idle states and loaded states and will take into account the peak voltage of the system with each video card installed. I will use MSI Kombuster to load the GPU for a 15 minute test and use the peak load of the system as my result for the maximum load. The idle results will be measured after 15 minutes of inactivity on the system.


  • MSI Kombuster Stability test
  • 1920 x 1200 Resolution
  • 8XAA
  • 15 minute load test
  • 15 minute idle test
  • Measurement is in Watts













Lower = Better


The MSI GTX 460 Hawk has power characteristics similar to that of the Palit GTX 460. Both cards come with a factory overclock and both can be over-volted to increase the clock speeds. The MSI looks like it is a little more efficient when under load at both stock and overclocked voltage settings. The higher grade military spec components and 7+1 phase power design may have something to do with that.
