Gigabyte GTX 460 OC SLi Review

Today our review is following a slightly different structure because we want to see how far we can push the Gigabyte GTX 460 cards in SLI then pit them in a head to head against a reference ATI HD5870 Crossfire X solution. While this seems like an unusual move, we thought it would be interesting, specifically as the HD5870 solution costs considerably more.

We used MSI Afterburner to overclock the cards.

We managed to push the cards to 880mhz and 885mhz respectively with one hitting 1000mhz on the memory and the other 1025mhz. Obviously for an SLI configuration we will take both of the lowest numbers for the final configuration, meaning 880mhz core and 1000mhz (4000 effective) on the memory. This is a 165mhz increase on the core and 100mhz (400mhz) on the memory, pretty much what we would expect from a GTX460 with modified cooling solution.
