Palit GTX 460 Sonic Platinum Overclocked w/ Voltage Adjustment

When it comes to video card overclocking there's really only one choice. MSI Afterburner has become a favorite of not just me but anyone who's interested in overclocking their video card period. When you combine the fact that the program is capable of handling both ATI and NVIDIA cards with the fact that MSI is on top of updating the program and making sure voltage adjust ability is present in as many models as possible and it's just a winner of a program.

We heard that we should be able to get around the 850MHz / 4000MHz QDR clock so this was our main target. We had hoped we wouldn't run into too much trouble getting these clocks because it was only 50MHz more on the core from the stock Sonic Platinum clock and the memory was the same.

The first thing I did was push the memory to 4200MHz while staying at 800MHz on the core; I thought if we could up that a bit to pass what we were told what we should get I would be happy and we could start working on the core.


We ended up with a core clock of 925MHz which is not only a 125MHz overclock from the Sonic Platinum but more importantly it's a huge 250MHz overclock from the stock 675MHz speed. This means that the Shader clock has sky rocketed; at 1850MHz it's 250MHz higher then what the Palit offers out of the box, compared to the reference NVIDIA clocks, though, it's 500MHz up which is just insane.

We also managed a bit of wiggle room with the memory and ended up at 4200MHz QDR which is 200MHz QDR above the out of the box Palit clocks and an impressive 600MHz QDR up on the reference card.
