Nvidia AIB partner Colorful seems to be taking overclocking rather seriously. The outfit has introduced a 900MHz GTX 460 card and it appears to be the fastest 460 around.
The reference clock is 675MHz, so it turns out Colorful managed to overclock it by 33 percent, which is nothing short of impressive. Shader clocks were bumped up to 1800MHz and memory runs at 4200MHz effective.
In order to reach such clocks, Colorful used a new PCB with a 6+1 phase power design rather than the reference 3+1.
The card uses a sizable dual-fan cooler and it doesn’t appear to be too loud, either.
