The Gainward GeForce GTX 460 Golden Sample GLH “Goes Like Hell” might be really compact, but it boasts one of the highest clock speeds we have seen on a GeForce GTX 460 right out of the box - a heady 800MHz at the core, 1600MHz at the shaders, and an equally impressive 4000MHz DDR at the memory. This should make it a close competitor against the reigning GTX 460 speed king - the Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 Super OC. However, despite its considerable clock speeds, Gainward has decided to go with a pretty basic cooler, hence it’ll be interesting to see what kind of temperatures this card will reach.
What’s also interesting is that unlike the usual twin DVI and mini-HDMI video output options we get on Fermi cards, Gainward has decided to be more practical and is offering two DVI ports, a single HDMI and VGA ports instead.
Of all the cards here, the Manli GeForce GTX 460 is unquestionably the plainest, sporting not only a reference cooler, but also reference clock speeds. Hopefully the cooler will be tuned to provide better cooling and overclocking.
