ECS Black GeForce GTX 460 1GB Video Card - Card and Specifications

We check out a very mean GTX 460 from ECS. The question is, can it stand up amongst this tough competition?

The Card

The stand-out aspect of the card is no doubt that massive TwinTurbo Pro Arctic Cooling cooler which is just huge in every way with it towering over the top of the card and hanging out to take up a third slot.

Apart from the cooler there's not a whole lot else to see with just two 6-Pin PCI-E power connectors, a single SLI connector and connectivity in the shape of two Dual-Link DVI ports and a single mini-HDMI one.

 

Something that must be said, though, is the fact that ECS thought about the cooler and chose to include an extra long SLI connector in the event you want to run two of these bad boys, assuming you've got the space between slots.

Like every other GTX 460 we've seen to date, the ECS doesn't carry with it stock clocks. Instead they've chosen to bump the core from 675MHz to 765MHz and the memory from 3600MHz QDR to 3700MHz QDR.

 

It's not the biggest increase in speed we've seen to date, but more impressive than some which have only bumped the core up to 715MHz or 725MHz and chosen to leave the memory clock alone.
