The Card

As we mentioned already, the card is pretty much the spitting image of the Palit GTX 460 Sonic Platinum we looked at a few weeks back. Being a duplicate can be good or bad; the verdict on this particular card is all positive. To be honest, we actually prefer it over the Palit version because the red fan looks cooler than the orange.

As for the rest of the card, you won't find any surprises here with a pair of 6-Pin power connectors at the top, a single SLI connector and two Dual-Link DVI connectors and a single VGA and HDMI port to round off the I/O side of things.

 

Specifications

 

The clocks on the Gainward offering are impressive. Unlike most companies, they opted to overclock both the core and memory clock. Most others have chosen to only bump the core up.

 

A stock clocked GTX 460 comes in with a 675MHz core, 1350MHz Shader clock and the 1GB of GDDR5 carrying a clock of 3600MHz QDR. Gainward, like both Palit and Galaxy, have blown these numbers out of the water.

Out of the box the GLH Edition gives us an 800MHz core which bumps the Shader clock to 1600MHz. As for that 1GB of GDDR5, that gets rounded off to a lovely sounding 4000MHz QDR.
