This is so tempting, really want ppd results on this at 1ghz+ core though. Might be a good downgrade from my GTX470. Someone buy/review this!

I can tell you with a 900mhz core, I'm getting 11k PPD, 47 second TPF's on the 611's., I would estimate that 1GHz would net you around 12-12.5kppd

very nice lookie lookie what we got here : techPowerUp :: MSI GTX 460 HAWK 1 GB Review :: Page 1 / 32

very nice cooler, but i see its not touching everything it should

techPowerUp :: MSI GTX 460 HAWK 1 GB Review :: Page 31 / 32

it seems you got to fiddle with the settings a bit. power consumption is a bit higher too

Why would you downgrade from your GTX470? GTX470 is better than the gtx460 plus that gtx460 has a custom cooler basically so if u do the same for GTX470 you will have a card thats like twice the speed of gtx460 well maybe not twice but almost as good as a gtx480 stock

actually the card stock(ok oc'ed compared to 'stock' nvidia specs) is quite close to a 470. http://tpucdn.com/reviews/MSI/GTX_46...es/perfrel.gif

why would one fork more than 220 for a 1gb version gtx 460 that oc's +- like all the others? maybe the cooler, maybe the potential that rests in the tweaking abilities..maybe :)

+ adding juice doesnt necessarily give you as good performance per watt numbers as with a stock oc'ed 460. which doesnt burn much more even when scaling quite high, as long as said juice is not touched.

I don't play a lot of new titles and the card was originally bought to fold with. I know 1ghz on the core should come close to 12k ppd, which is the same as my GTX470 on stock clocks but with a lot less heat and power consumption. I'd be giving up the 14-16k PPD that the 470 can do though, but 25% less PPD for ~30% less power seems pretty nice to me, plus the added bonus of tinkering with O/C features.
