[PureOC] EVGA GTX 460 2Win Review

post #1 of 79
Thread Starter 
Quote:
The GeForce GTX 460 proved to be an extremely popular graphics card from Nvidia, offering some excellent gaming value to consumers in the mid-range market segment. But it also avoided much of the high temperature problems exhibited by its flagship GTX 470/480 siblings because custom heatsink could tame the heat on the 460.
EVGA has decided to take that popular card and essentially twin (2WIN.....twin, to win...) a pair of those GF104 chips onto a single PCB design. While Nvidia has offered dual-GPU cards before, its success has been spotty. High heat, noise levels, and power consumption, along with questionable driver support and game implementation, were major detractions to what was otherwise an innovative idea. The GTX 460 2WIN doesn't really have a direct predecessor other than the single-GPU GTX 460 in a sense, and EVGA has engineered this new card from the ground up. With claims of beating a GTX 580, this new EVGA card has some big performance numbers to hit in order to reach that goal.

Similar to a 580 interms of performance, costs less but produces more heat and very long.

It's loading fine for me.

But it beats the GTX580 in almost all tests.

Very slow loading. I still think the price could be lower.

Seriously? It preforms on par with a GTX580...
& is 70$ less.

You dont compare it price wise to a GTX580, You compare it to the price of buying 2x GTX 460's
