Palit GTX460 1GB registering as having 128 Bit

Hi guys.

I recently bought a second hand Palit GTX 460 Sonic 1GB 256 Bit card (not the Platinum one) and GPU-Z is indicating something very disturbing: a bus width of 128 Bit and a bandwidth of only 57,6 GB/s.
I know for a fact that there are no GTX 460s with 128 bits (only 192 and 256) so what's going on?

Can anyone help to track down the problem?

does it show the right product name in cpu-z?? with video cards someone may have flashed a lower end card to cheat people. look at the pci id info in cpu-z and google it. also run spacy from ccleaner see if they can read hardware id of the card for you. also look on the card for product numbers that could not be labled on to see if the gpu you got is the gpu you paid for.

The device id is 10DE-0E22. It seems to belong to GTX 460 cards but not Palit (Gigabyte GTX 460, EVGA GTX 460).

lok at the pallite bios files there the same as gigbytes...looks like someone took a 450 and flashed it to a 460 card.

Having read all that that's my opinion as well. Guess I'm going to have to contact the seller.
Thank you for the help and happy holidays!
