MSI N760 Hawk Testing:

Power consumption of the system will be measured at both idle and loaded states, taking into account the peak voltage of the system with each video card installed. I will use Unigine's Heaven Benchmark version 4.0 to put a load onto the GPU using the settings below. A 15-minute load test will be used to heat up the GPU, with the highest measured temperature recorded as the result. The idle results will be measured after 15 minutes of inactivity on the system. With dual-GPU setups, the two core temperatures will be averaged.


  • Unigine 4.0 Heaven Benchmark
  • 1920x1080 Resolution
  • 8x AA
  • 15-minute load test
  • 15-minute idle test
  • Measurement is in watts

















Idle power consumption on the MSI GTX 760 Hawk is slightly higher than the reference card at both stock and overclocked settings. Load power consumption by the reference card was roughly 20 watts more efficient at stock speeds, but this margin shrinks when both cards are overvolted and have the fan speeds raised to improve cooling performance. Even though the GTX 760 Hawk is equipped with a pair of propeller blade fans, the power consumption is close between the two cards at idle.
