Wednesday Palit Microsystems Ltd. introduced the GTX460 Sonic 2GB, its latest entry in the GTX 460 series. As the name implies, the card provides 2GB of GDDR5 high speed memory clocked at 3.6 GHz on a 256-bit memory bandwidth. The card also has a factory-overclocked core speed of 700 MHz--25 MHz higher than the reference speed.
When compared with the previous-generation GeForce GTX285 2GB, Palit's GTX460 Sonic 2GB provides a 12-percent increase in performance when rendering visuals at a 1920 x 1200 resolution. "It also enables end users to enjoy extreme enhanced performance while playing the latest DX10 / DX11 PC games under HD large screen and high quality imagery," the company said.
Palit also threw in a huge, 2-ball bearing fan keeping things cool while the GF104-powered card cranks out DirectX 11 visuals. Other bells and whistles include 336 CUDA Cores, a shader frequency of 1400 MHz, 2-way SLI support, D-Sub, dual-DVI and HDMI outputs, and more. The card is also 3D Vision ready, 3D Vision Surround ready, and supports DirectCompute, OpenCL, OpenGL 4.0, and 32x Anti-aliasing technology.
Stay tuned for pricing and availability.
