The last time we looked at a Gainward offering we were impressed. The GTX 470 we looked at a few months ago brought with it everything we wanted; better cooling and more performance, while at the same time not costing much more.
Today we're looking at another card from the company; this being the new GTX 460 which has become the apple of so many eyes. Its low price and high performance has made it a winner in so many people's hearts. If the GTX 480 stopped the heart of NVIDIA, the GTX 460 is the defibrillator that brought it back to life.
The version we're looking at today from Gainward is the GLH or Goes Like Hell edition. We wonder, though, how exactly does hell go? - To be honest, we already know since the card is pretty much a carbon copy of the Sonic Platinum Palit card we looked at a few weeks back. What that means is Hell goes fast...damn fast!
Since we ultimately knew how the card was going to perform in single form, we wanted to SLI it with the Palit version we looked at earlier on. We figure the only thing better than going through hell alone is going through it with your twin brother. Before we see how they went, let's have a closer look at the Gainward version of the GTX 460 1GB.
There's not a whole lot going on in the package. We've got some paperwork, a driver CD and a power convertor. Apart from that there's really nothing else to see, so let's have a closer look at the card itself now.
