Gainward GeForce GTX 460 1GB Goes Like Hell (GLH) Edition in SLI - Final Thoughts

We partner the GTX 460 GLH version from Gainward with another 800MHz card. How does hell go, we wonder?

Final Thoughts

 

By itself the Gainward GTX 460 1GB Goes Like Hell edition is just a beast of a card. That's thanks to the massive 800MHz core clock and 4GHz QDR memory clock that the company is offering.

 

I understand that not everyone is interested in overclocking. They can't be bothered, don't understand or are just generally worried that it could shorten the life of the product. That's why you buy pre-overclocked cards. Only a few companies have gone big with the overclock on the GTX 460, though, and fortunately Gainward is one of them.

 

Palit bought Gainward to become larger in the European market where Gainward has always been strong. What's so great about Gainward is the fact that Palit hasn't butchered them; they've kept with popular series names like "Golden Sample" while adding more to its repertoire. Gainward at worst is as good as they've always been. At best, though, they're better than they've ever been because of the power house that is Palit.

 

What's so fantastic about this card is that the overclock is so strong, when you throw it in SLI its performance is just massive. Sure, you can overclock yourself, but if you don't want to, if you can't be bothered or just simply don't mind spending a few extra dollars, this is just a fantastic buy. Performance is just crazy and like we said in our TPR graphs two pages back, have a look at the cost of the setups that are faster than this and you can really see the power that is on offer here.

 

The biggest issue with the Gainward GTX 460 1GB GHL edition is the same issue with most video cards these days; the bundle is lacking anything apart from the bare minimum. To be honest, though, who cares? - The card is the bundle and oh what a card it is.

 

If you're looking for an extremely fast out of the box GTX 460, this is one you want to look at. If you're simply looking for an extremely fast video card setup, two of these are what you should be looking at.

 

The bottom line is the performance of two of these cards just doesn't make sense for the price. The setup should be more expensive, but it's not, so quickly go out and buy a pair before someone discovers the money they could be making from this setup!
