ECS Black GeForce GTX 460 1GB Video Card (Page 1)

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

Introduction

I saw the press release the other week for the Black GTX 460 from ECS and ever since then I've been a pain to them asking when I was going to get a chance to look at it. The moment I saw the card and that massive Arctic Cooling cooler that ECS had implemented, I knew it was going to be a beast. The question we ask now, is it beasty enough?

The GTX 460 has become one of the toughest video card markets for partners; the model is very popular, very overclockable and most partners are offering something that's outside the norm.

So with the bar set high already, let's look at the package before we have a closer look at the card, its clocks and performance.

The Package

Checking out the package, there's not much going on. We've got a simple driver disk, DVI to VGA connector, SLI connector, Dual Molex to 6-Pin PCI-E convertor along with an 8-Pin to 6-Pin PCI-E convertor which might come in handy for people who only have a single 6-Pin and 8-Pin PCI-E power connector on their power supply.
