Gainward launches three GTX 460 cards
Tops with Golden Sample Goes Like Hell card
As most partners did or shall do, Gainward has also released its Geforce GTX 460 card. In order to use the overclockability of the GF104 GPU, Gainward has come up with a total of three cards, one reference with 768MB of memory and two factory overclocked 1GB GTX 460 cards.
The top of the line is the Gainward GTX 460 GS-GLH, or short for Golden Sample Goes Like Hell edition which will be working at 800MHz for the GPU, 1600MHz for shaders and 4000MHz for that 1GB of GDDR5 memory. The next in line is the GTX 460 GS set at 700MHz for the GPU, 1400MHz for shader and 3600MHz for the same 1GB of GDDR5 memory.
The last but not least is the reference GTX 460 with 768MB of memory and clocks set at 675MHz for the GPU, 1350MHz for sahders and 3600MHz for memory. All three cards feature 336 CUDA cores, feature support for DirectX 11 and Nvidia's CUDA, SLI and PhysX.
Although it looks like all three cards use the same cooler, that isn't the case as Gainward decided to use its GP Heatpipes on those two overclocked cards. This one has 6mm copper-water heatpipes and a "Great 8cm" double ball bearing fan. All three card feature the same connectivity so you are looking at D-Sub, DVI and HDMI outputs.
