has refreshed its Geforce GTX 460 lineup with a couple of FTW Edition cards with massively bumped up clocks.
Both cards feature 1024MB of memory and a 256-bit bus, but the EVGA Geforce GTX 460 FTW with external exhaust (EE) features a non-reference cooler. Both cards feature an 850MHz core clock which means they should end up as some of the fastest 460 boards around. In fact, only PoV’s TGT Beast Edition is faster, with an 855MHz clock. The memory has also been given a proper whipping and it runs at 1000MHz.
Neither card could be called cheap, as the FTW with standard exhaust version has an MSRP of $259, while the FTW EE with non-reference cooling should cost $269. Still, it’s probably better to go for the EE version, as EVGA usually knows what it’s doing when it comes to coolers and a $10 premium doesn’t sound like much anyway.
