Product Gallery - MSI GeForce GTX 460 768MB Cyclone OC
Let me introduce the graphics cards tested today to you. We start off with the MSI GeForce GTX 460 768MB Cyclone OC edition.
MSI will introduce several SKUs based of the GeForce GTX 460 series. Above you can see the GeForce GTX 460 768MB Cyclone OC edition. The card comes with a basic bundle, no additional game software or anything. Good news on the MSI side, voltage tweaking with AfterBurner is supported, and as our overclock demo will show... we can get this puppy even over 900 MHz on the core making it the most overclockable product we have tested today. And again, yes you read that right... 675 MHz is the default reference clock frequency on the core... we took it over 900 MHz, but more on that later of course.
At default the card already comes a tiny bit overclocked, 727 MHz on the core, 1455 MHz on the shader processors and 3600 MHz on the gDDR5 memory over a 192-bit memory bus. As you can see, the card is equipped with two dual-link DVI connectors and a mini-HDMI connector, an adapter for this mini-HDMI connector is included.
The card is built MSI style, the military class components show (stronger, higher quality, better heat levels), a nice black PCB and of course the eye-catching Cyclone cooler, which works really well I might add, this card can not be heard even under full GPU stress. Especially when overclocking it shows more muscle compared to the reference design cooler.
The PCB is very clean and crisp alright. Here we see the backside, notice that you'll get only one SLI finger, meaning a maximum of two cards set up in SLI is as far as you can go with a multi-GPU setup.
Last photo of the MSI GTX 460 768MB Cyclone OC edition; two 6-pin PEG power connectors are required for this board. Power consumption is rated at a 150W TDP. This card will come with a price tag of roughly 210 USD and as our tests will show, that is an awful lot of value for money. Especially when you overclock a little, these puppies can be boosted close to Radeon 5850 / GeForce GTX 470 performance.
In this review we test the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti SC SuperClocked ACX review, armed with that 450W cooler and our FLIR camera we'll see if it really is good cooling. Oh and hey, SC means a factory o...
