Point of View / TGT GTX 460 768MB Ultra Charged first glimpse

Preview: GTX 460 768 MB Ultra Charged runs at 820MHz


Some ten days ago, Point of View / TGT informed us that the first GTX 460 Charged and Ultra Charged cards are in the channel and they should be on the shelves soon enough. The cards are already listed and available at Alternate.de and the prices stand at €209,90 for the GTX 460 768MB Charged, €229,90 for the GTX 460 768MB Ultra Charged and €239 and €259 for the GTX 470 1024MB Charged and Ultra Charged.

We received the GTX 460 768MB Ultra Charged, currently the fastest GTX 460 768MB card POV has to offer. The card’s GPU ticks at 820MHz and naturally, this left a mark on the pricing as well. The memory runs at 1000MHz (4000MHz effectively) whereas the shaders can easily be calculated by multiplying GPU clock by two. Let us refresh your memory – the reference clocks are 675MHz for the GPU and 900MHz for memory (3600MHz effectively). Note that TGT overclocking team is readying the GTX 460 BEAST card that will run at 850MHz.

With its 820MHz worth of juice, the GTX 460 768MB Ultra Charged card can easily keep pace with the overclocked GTX 460 1GB in Aliens vs. Predator at 1920x1200. We’ll soon know whether TGT Ultra Charged card (overclocked but with less memory and 192-bit memory interface) loses its pace in more memory dependent tests.

As far as the card goes, it’s a reference design so we’re talking about quiet dual slot cooling solution with Point of View’s TGT logo. The cooler is excellent and not even FurMark managed to push temperatures beyond 78°C, despite the fact that the cooler ran quietly and at only 59% RPM.

Point of View included a mini HDMI-to-HDMI converter with gold plated connectors, which is a really nice touch, but we must admit that given the €229,90 price we’d much rather see one of the newer games.
