Review: GTX 460 1GB Beast beats GTX 470



Today we’ve had a chance to check out the fastest GTX 460 cards currently available in retail, courtesy of Point of View and TGT overclocking team. The GTX 460 BEAST runs at 855MHz for the GPU and 1005MHz for the memory, proudly earning the title of the fastest overclocked GTX 460 money can currently buy. Note that all the TGT GTX 460 overclocked cards use reference PCB and cooling, but that’s nothing to worry about as this cooler is quiet and effective enough to cool GF 104 GPU on GTX 460.

GTX 460 Ultra Charged and BEAST cards are excellent and we’ve seen the BEAST outrunning the reference card by up to 23%. Unfortunately, we’re a bit worried by the high pricing. In fact, GTX 460 1GB BEAST costs about the same as GTX 470.

Point of View/TGT overclocked cards should be pretty attractive to users who don’t want to meddle with overclocking and by buying one of these cards, you’ll get an overclocked card still covered by warranty.

The cards are listed and available at Alternate.de and the prices stand at €209,90 for the GTX 460 768MB Charged, €229,90 for the GTX 460 768MB Ultra Charged and €239 and €259 for the GTX 470 1024MB Charged and Ultra Charged respectively. The GTX 460 768MB Beast and GTX 460 1GB Beast sell at €249 and €280 respectively.

If your priority is bragging rights, it is the card for you, but if not, then for the same amount I'd get the 470, since the charts are comparing them to a reference 470, meaning with no overclock yet.

not very impressed looking at the metro2033 scores, I'll wait for next-gen cards.

Can't see the point of these overclocked cards at that price point.I picked up a very nice Gigabyte 1GB GTX460 at £170 Delivered.I can clock that to 820Mhz and 4Ghz for the memory should the game demand it.That is very good value for money in my book.

460 GTX beast is a mainstreem card and no overclock will make it high end. Just compare it with 480 GTX.

Wait until 6770 comes out which will probably be on par with the beast version while drowing 50 - 60W less power according the rumors that are floating around.

Also Nvidia in order to beat the upcoming 6870 should release a full 384 sp GF104 and clock it at 1GHz and call it 460 Bitch version.
