The GTX 460 models are coming in thick and fast with the next one to go on the chopping block that is the TweakTown testbed being a version from Palit. This seems to be a new series from Palit. While we're familiar with the Sonic series which tend to revolve around the card being overclocked and the Super series letting us know the card would be carrying more memory, we're not too sure about the Sonic Platinum one that we're looking at today.
The GTX 460 is off to a great start here at TweakTown; we're extremely happy with the model. The price is super aggressive and performance on a whole is just great. The big question is, how does Palit stand out against the GIGABYTE 1GB version we've already looked at and the MSI 768MB one?
Has Palit been a bit bored lately and just decided to slap on an extra word to the known Sonic series, or does Platinum actually mean something? Are we supposed to get excited about what the Sonic Platinum offers us when compared to the other GTX 460s we've already looked at? Well, I'm going to let you in on a little secret; yes, you should! - The Sonic Platinum looks to be the goods, but before we look closer at the card and its specifications, let's see the package that Palit has put together.
