Looking at the card, the cooler is very Palit; black and orange with a single fan directly over the core. It doesn't look all that fancy, but we're sure it will do the job. As for power, Palit have moved the connectors to the top of the card instead of the back. We've also got a single SLI connector at the front of the card.
Palit as always like to mix it up a bit more when it comes to the connectivity and you can see we've got two Dual-Link DVI ports, a single VGA port and a single HDMI port. Hopefully that extra DVI port doesn't cause the card to run any hotter than it needs to as it's blocking up half the vent where the hot air would exhaust.
When it came to looking at the specifications of the card, it was clear that the Sonic Platinum name was well deserved. The default core on the GTX 460 is 675MHz with a 1350MHz Shader clock. The OC version we looked at from GIGABYTE came in at 715MHz with a 1430MHz Shader clock.
Palit have chosen to just blow this out of the water, as you can see above by offering us an 800MHz core with a 1600MHz Shader clock. The company has also decided to up the ante on the memory, moving it from the default 3600MHz QDR to 4000MHz QDR.
The GTX 460 has already shown us some good performance, but it's clear that these numbers are going to take the performance numbers to another level.
