PC Perspective - Palit GeForce GTX 460 1GB Sonic Platinum Review - Rivaling the GTX 470
It has been just over a month since the release of the GeForce GTX 460 GPU and it quickly became the most popular iteration of the Fermi architecture for consumers. Coming in at price points of $199 and $229 depending on the memory configuration, the GTX 460 met the demands of gamers that wanted a DX11 architecture with some advanced features but didn’t want the hassle of high noise or heat levels that plagued the GTX 470/480 since their release in March.

Almost immediately after release, NVIDIA’s card partners started releasing overclocked and over-speced models that pushed the performance and value of the GTX 460 even further. We looked at the Galaxy GTX 460 GC model in late July and found it to be a great option with a slight overclock at a price right in line with other reference options. Today we are taking a look at a much faster card, the Palit GeForce GTX 460 1GB Sonic Platinum edition, that turns out to not only run past any other GTX 460 we have tested but also rivals the performance of the GTX 470 in nearly all of our tests.

Palit might still be a name some users aren’t familiar with for NVIDIA graphics cards, but they should be well aware soon if Palit continues to offer innovative and interesting products like this one.
