Default EVGA GTX 460 768MB Superclocked Single & SLI Review Comment Thread

Our initial impressions of the GTX 460 768MB were extremely positive since it offers amazing performance for a card that is priced at around $200. But what happens when you combine two of them together and then add a bit of EVGA's Superclocked goodness? Will this combination prove to be a match for higher-end cards like the GTX 480? Let's find out...

Wow, scaling is impressive to say the least. Well besides the atrocious minimum framerate in Far Cry 2.

It certainly looks like Nvidia is well on its way to getting better control of its thermal and power issues evident in the 480/470 architecture. Perhaps this could lead to a dual gpu to knock the 5970 down a notch and reclaim the overall crown of the most powerful gpu on the planet. Might be time to sell my 5970 Blacks,hehe.


As always, this review is nothing less than excellent. Unfortunately, this is keeping your reviews intense. Maybe tougher on you, great for all of us. If I could, I'd buy you a brew! Not too many though, wouldn't want to get you drunk!!! I'm sure you love doing these, as is evidenced by your thoroughness. Keep up the great work SKYMTL!

These cards are quite loose. They should use belts to tighten up

Great scaling and performance, but when serious muscle is required it fails. Like high tesselation and AA. Sometimes the 460SLI fails and a single 480 holds it self mighty
