EVGA sent out two GTX 460 768MB cards. The first board is a reference based card, and comes with a 675 MHz core frequency, 1350 MHz on the shader domain and 3600 MHz on the gDDR5 memory (256-bit).
The card to the right (both look 100% identical) has been binned for better yields though as that is a GeForce GTX 460 768MB SuperClock edition graphics card. eVGA really spiced up the clocks on that baby as the core GPU frequency is an astounding 763 MHz, the shader domain runs at 1526 MHz and the memory is overclocked as well to 3800 MHz.
Overall a very interesting card which comes standard with two years warranty, and when you register within 30-days online eVGA will bump that warranty up towards 10 years !
The bundle is okay, it's good to see all the usual accessories are in there and what we like very much is an included HDMI cable. eVGA sticks to the reference design cooler. Not only does that cooler look nice, it actually performs really well.
As stated, both cards look exactly the same, besides the better binned version that gives a very nice default overclock with this card.
Both the reference and SC models definitely offer a little extra to be found in overclocking. Being eVGA this product also comes with eVGA Precision software, which is developed by Guru3D's Unwinder. Also included in the software bundle is OC Scanner (attached) EVGA OC Scanner is fully supported by the EVGA GTX 460, this utility allows you to benchmark, monitor and stress test your EVGA GTX 460 graphics card.
Connectivity wise we see some pretty decent stuff, a dual-link DVI connector, HDMI and one Display Port connector. The card is 4.4 In / 11 CM in height and 8.25 In / 21 CM in length. Nice and small.
Located all the way up front we again see a single SLI finger, allowing a maximum of two cards to be set up in SLI mode. We'll address SLI in a separate article by the way.
We flip around the board once more and spot two 6-pin power PEG headers, nicely located at the rear. With the entire package, software and pre-overclocked card we feel that eVGA has a very solid product series on their hands. eVGA thus will release the regular and other overclocked models, let's hope they can keep pricing a little under control, as that is everything in this segment of the graphics card arena alright. We test both the regular and SC (SuperClocked) editions today in this article. We expect the regular version to retail at 200 USD and the SuperClocked version at give or take 249 USD. Time will tell though.
