Nvidia's GTX 460 to be great overclocker
Nvidia nods for 800MHz
It looks like Nvidia's upcoming GTX 460 card has s lot of overclocking headroom as we are hearing that even Nvidia gave the nod for up to 800MHz. Most partners, if not all, will go for a factory overclocked card, and some might even hit the magical 800MHz mark.
We already caught a glimpse of MSI's card that works at 725MHz for the GPU and it's quite a boost from the reference 675MHz, but we guess that some partners will go even higher. The best bet for the 800MHz card is EVGA, as it has always launched at least three cards and Superclocked version might be the one that will go this high.
Of course, some of the GF 104 chips will not be able to go this high, or at least partners will not make such a high factory overclock, but there is a lot of room for overclocking on these cards.
