The GeForce GTX 460 was easily the most well received Fermi-based graphics card to come from NVIDIA thus far; using the GF104 GPU that was tweaked slightly to target the graphics markets rather than the high-performance computing fields the GTX 460 turned out to be more power efficient compared to AMD’s GPUs. Add to that the noticeably lower price points of $199 for the 768MB model and $229 for the 1GB size and you can see why gamers on a budget are buying up these cards pretty damn fast.
On our day 1 review we only test the reference models but since then we have gotten a couple of retail, overclocked options from Galaxy and Palit and we are finally ready to start sharing the results with you! Not only are we going to be seeing how the Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 GC 1GB card stands up to the reference speeds but we are going to test how a pair of GTX 460 cards in SLI compare to a single GTX 480 card in the value department. The results might surprise you there…
Galaxy was a launch partner with NVIDIA for this GPU release and they have three different models available: one stock, one slightly overclocked and one more running extensively over spec. We are looking at that middle option today, the “GC” model.
