Review: Overclocked Edition 

Recently announced Gainward GTX 470 Good Edition card comes with nonreference cooling but reference clocks, so it was only a matter of time when Gainward will launch an overclocked card as well. Today we have a card based on the GTX 470 Good’s design, but it’s dubbed more familiarly – Gainward GTX 470 Golden Sample.  

Compared to the reference GTX 470, Gainward’s GTX 470 Golden Sample comes with a redesigned PCB which should provide better overclocking potential as well as better thermals.

Gainward’s GTX 470 Golden Sample comes preoverclocked – GPU runs at 650MHz, and the memory at 850MHz (reference card runs at 607MHz GPU and 837MHz memory). Apart from nonreference, dual-fan cooling, Golden sample comes with a nice set of video outs; the I/O panel features two dual-link DVIs, HDMI and DisplayPort.

The GTX 470 is based on a scaled down version of the GF100 chip, with two disabled SMs and with 448 stream processors in total. It sits in Nvidia’s GTX 400 DX 11 graphics card series and they’re aimed at AMD’s HD 5800 offer.
