Dual slot, dual fan and factory overclock

In addition to reference GTX 460 cards announced yesterday, Gigabyte has also prepared a WindForce series card based on the same GPU. Featuring a non-reference dual slot cooler, these GTX 460 cards will also be available as a 768 and 1024MB version and will feature a factory overclock.

The new WindForce cards will work at 715MHz for the GPU, 1430MHz for those 336 CUDA cores and 3600MHz for either 768 or 1024MB of GDDR5 memory. It also features Gigabyte's 2oz copper PCB, Japanases solid capacitors, Low RDS mosfet and Ferrite/Metal core chokes as well as only Samsung and Hynix memory chips.

The new WindForce cooler features two pure copper heatpipes connected to a large heatsink which is then cooled by a dual quiet PWM Windforce fans that have anti-turbulence inclined-fin. The Windforce cooler should provide up to 11 percent better cooling.

Both cards should be available on the market pretty soon.
