TGT's magic makes PoV's GTX 460 the fastest GTX 460 around

Preview: GTX 460 1GB Ultra Charged
What you have in front of you is the fastest GTX 460 around, a direct result of TGT overclocking team's efforts on Point of View's cards. We're talking about the 1GB version of the card with the 256-bit memory interface and the card's full name is GTX 460 1GB Ultra Charged.

With the GPU running at 820 MHz and the memory at 1000 MHz (4000 MHz effectively), you're getting a lethal combination of a large frame buffer and significant GPU juice which will be enough to defeat every other GTX 460 out there.

Just like the GTX 460 768MB Ultra Charged card, the GTX 460 1GB Ultra Charged relies on reference cooling. The golden rule applies - if it ain't broke, it doesn't need fixing, and we were pretty happy with the cooler's performance.

We recorded 79°C in FurMark (HAF-X case, standard fan setup). The measured temperature is only 1°C higher than on the GTX 460 768MB Ultra Charged, which is a nice feat considering that both cards run at identical clocks.

As you can see from our short test, GTX 460 1GB Ultra Charged is the fastest GTX 460 around, and TGT's job on PoV's cards will surely set a benchmark for the future.

GTX 460 1GB Ultra Charged will most likely remain the fastest factory overclocked GTX 460 1GB card, whereas the so-far fastest GTX 460 768MB card - the GTX 460 768MB Ultra Charged will be replaced by yet another TGT flavored Point of View card - the GTX 460 768MB Beast.

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.

Hmm I wonder how much Nvidia pay you and other sites to advertise their cards like this...

You are clearly using benchmarks that Nvidia want you to use

We will see that if FZ staff will publish (or not) the article about BFG returning broken cards to its customers because nvidia won't support them anymore, even under warranty... and those are for the older 200 series, not even the broken fermi.

OH THAT WAS ME! I had to get the same GTX 280 replaced SEVERAL times, They got it right on the 4th one and were so nice to give me an OC edition for all the trouble lol, the 4th one they sent me I think they made SURE it was working good cause they got sick of hearing from me haha, but now its nice and below 80 Celcius(from 120)

Yea i bought it over a year ago and finally have a good working one, first was fine too actually nvidias drivers turned autofan off and killed it..

Well, I hope it will last 'cause you won't be getting warranty for this one if it breaks.

you know what BFG was actually really awesome to even RMA my graphics card when they knew next week they would liquidate and didn't actually have to do anything. But, they did and I have a nice working card now.. better than the original I bought. It sucks it broke, and it sucks they got cut off from Nvidia, but they still RMA'ed me while liquidating the company. Obviously I won't be getting a warranty if it breaks again, they informed me themselves that they can't anymore.
