There's more to the 1GB version of the GTX 460 than extra memory. Let's have a closer look at the GIGABYTE version.

With no package on this card from GIGABYTE we'll just get stuck straight into the card. As for the cooler you can see that GIGABYTE has opted for the dual fan design which has been very popular lately with it being seen on other mid range models.

 

A quick spin around the card doesn't reveal anything different to the MSI version we looked at earlier. We've got two 6-Pin PCI-E connectors, a single SLI connector and connectivity is provided by two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a single Mini-HDMI port.

The GIGABYTE card is overclocked out of the box which seems to be quite a common occurrence with this model. The card has moved from the 675MHz / 1350MHz / 3600MHz QDR Core / CUDA / Memory clocks to a 715MHz / 1430MHz / 3600MHz setup.

 

While not as big an overclock compared to the MSI which carried with it a 725MHz core, since this is the 1GB model we're dealing with a larger 256-bit memory bus verses the 192-bit seen on the 768MB version, while also seeing 32 ROP units verses 24.

 

It will be very interesting to see how this compares against the MSI version. Let's check out our test system and then get stuck straight into it.
