Danish overclocker THC noted that "the MSI R6870 Hawk has increased the phase of the power supply to 8+2 phase, allowing me to operate extreme overclocking on the GPU with the huge amount of current required. With MSI's Afterburner triple super-overclocking software, I was able to avoid the risk of damaging the graphics card when making modifications, thus enabling me to effortlessly increase the GPU/memory/VDDCI voltage and break the HD 6870 records for 3DMark05 and 06!"
 
The R6870 Hawk boasts MSI's exclusive Propeller Blade fan technology, which increases airflow by 20%. The 8+2-phase power supply provides twice the amount of current compared to the reference design, increasing stability while overclocking. Combined with the triple over-voltage technology, VMEM and VDDCI can be boosted along with VGPU, further lifting overclocking headroom. With overclocking-friendly implementations, MSI claims its R6870 Hawk has become the hottest Radeon HD 6870 product on the market.

With THC achieving a record-breaking feat using the HAWK series, MSI hopes that more overclocking enthusiasts will pick MSI cards as their choice for both performance and quality components.
