The MSi R5770 Hawk is a desktop graphics card based on the mid-range ATI Radeon HD 5770. It supports DirectX 11 and features 1 GB of GDDR5 memory, with a core clock speed of 875 MHz, slightly higher than the HD 5770. It also features greater overclocking capabilities than the base model, enabling a performance boost of up to 20% via Afterburner technology. The R5770 Hawk is a step below MSi's HD 5830-based model, however, utilizing only 128-bit memory and fewer stream processing units. But it includes technologies not available with MSi's lower-end graphics cards, including CrossFireX for multi-GPU scalability, and Eyefinity, which enables simultaneous output to up to 3 displays. The Hawk adds a more complex cooling system to the base GPU, with dual fans and three heatpipes. The graphics card supports DisplayPort, DVI, and HDMI outputs.
