Gigabyte lets loose overclocked GTX 460s

Gigabyte has been busy overclocking the heck out of the GeForce GTX 460 series, implementing its Windforce-cooling tech on a couple of new cards.

It claims that the GV-N460OC-1GI and GV-N460OC-768I run “extraordinary” gaming performance with GDDR5 high speed graphic memory included. Gigabyte boldly boasts that its overclocked cards can “easily beat all the competitors and surpass the performance of upper-end products.”

Ultra Durable VGA components and the new Gigabyte Windforce keep the card stable while offering high performance.

The anti-turbulence cooling Windforce 2X has a dual fan design which promises to minimise turbelence between them, as well as advanced heat dissipation of hot areas found underneath the fans. It also manages to enlarge air channels on the graphics card’s vents to create an effective air flow system in the chassis.

The products, which feature Gigabyte’s Ultra Durable VGA Technology, means that you can overclock to your heart’s content without worrying too much about high GPU temperatures, as well as offering a decent bit of power efficiency with the 2 oz PCB board.

The memory is by Samsung and Hynix. Gigabyte reckons with all this in tow you’re going to have a lot of fun with gaming.
