Palit GTX 460 Sonic Platinum 1GB
One of the things we’ve loved about the GeForce GTX 460 design is that it offers some great performance and value to gamers on modest budgets that don’t want to compromise too much. Nvidia really struck back with the release of this card, and it’s made for some interesting developments of late in the GPU wars.
Beyond the reference design cards, some manufacturers are taking what is already an impressive product and pushing things even further, with features such a custom heatsink or a factory overclock, for example. One such company that has is typically known for taking reference designs that extra mile is Palit. And true to form, they’ve done exactly that with their GTX 460 Sonic Platinum 1GB.
The Sonic Platinum sports a smaller PCB and a custom heatsink. But what’s really interesting about this card is that it comes with a huge factory overclock. And not some some lame little 25MHz either. Palit shoves caution to the wind and overclocks the snot out of this card, almost to its very limit. Sound promising? We think so.
