The best GTX 460 in the market.

Price: AED

As usual, our testbed comprises of an Intel Core i7 965 EE with 3GB Corsair XMS3-1333 RAM on the ASUS II Rampage Extreme Motherboard. Drivers used were the latest Forceware 258.96. Once again, all settings were kept at the maximum possible allowed.

Both DX11 benchmarks seem comparable to ASUS GTX 460 which was also factory overclocked to 775MHz at Core speeds. That’s quite a significant jump from stock speeds represented by the Zotac GTX 460, although the N460GTX Hawk seems lacking in Unigine for some strange reason.

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.
