Point of View
and TGT have released yet another batch of Charged series cards, this time as a part of the GTS 450 lineup.
The GTS 450 Charged and GTS 450 Ultra Charged are based on Nvidia's GF106 GPU and boast quite an impressive factory overclock. The GTS 450 Charged ended up clocked at 835MHz for the GPU, 1670MHz for 192 CUDA Cores and 3800MHz for 1GB of GDDR5 memory. The GTS 450 Ultra Charged is the top-notch offer with factory overclock set at 891MHz for the GPU, 1782MHz for CUDA Cores and 4008MHz for the same amount of memory. Just for comparison, Nvidia's reference clocks for this card ended up at 783MHz for the GPU, 1566MHz for Shaders, or CUDA Cores, and 3608MHz for memory.
Both cards support DirectX 11 and feature two DVI and mini-HDMI outputs, as well as the same dual-slot cooler that we've seen on POV's reference cads. Both cards should be available in retail/e-tail pretty soon with a price tag of €129 for the Charged and €139 for the Ultra Charged version.
