ASUS ENGTX480/2DI/1536MD5 GeForce GTX 480
Featured Reviews: Video Cards

Nearly half a year since that launch of NVIDIA's GF100 Fermi GPU, the landscape has hardly changed. NVIDIA still sells the most powerful graphics processor made, and for a select few with money set aside for elite-level graphics the top-end GeForce GTX 480 video card still offers good reason for purchase. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests the ASUS ENGTX480/2DI/1536MD5 GeForce GTX 480 video card. This GF-100 GPU Fermi-based graphics card is the key to many things: high-performance 3D-Vision and 3D-Vision Surround, unmatched PhysX potential, and one part of an unbeatable SLI set. Our benchmark tests compare 3D frame rate performance with the ASUS GeForce GTX 480 in single-card and SLI-modes against some of the most powerful graphics products on the market.

MSI N460GTX HAWK GeForce GTX 460
Featured Reviews: Video Cards

The slew of NVIDIA GTX 460 video cards that hit the market in the last month was impressive. Everybody wanted as much of the pie as they could get, which was not surprising given the level of performance that the GTX460 offers for the cost. On almost every level, the GTX 460 was a game-changer for Fermi. Some vendors weren't satisfied with putting a label on the reference design, and MSI is one of them. The N460GTX HAWK that Benchmark Reviews is looking at today is a brand new board design with advanced features no one else can match. They also adapted their Twin Frozr II cooling design for the HAWK, and bumped up the heatpipe count to four. To top it all off, the new version of MSI Afterburner can control voltage levels for three diferent subsystems. This could be the GTX460 that all the hard core overclockers have been waiting for.

GeForce GTS 450 SLI Scaling Performance
Featured Reviews: Video Cards

Only a few years ago NVIDIA's SLI technology was a feature only the most elite gamers took advantage of, helping them to push the fastest graphics cards on the planet even faster. Often times a second GeForce video card could be combined into a SLI set and produce 33-50% more performance. Those days are gone, and Benchmark Reviews has learned that a set of GF106 GPUs can do a lot more than scale; they can multiply. Since a single $129 GeForce GTS 450 can outperform an AMD Radeon HD 5750 and match the 5770, what kind of performance do you get from two GTS 450's for $258? It seems like a pair of mainstream GTS 450's in SLI should compete nicely against AMD's $200 Radeon HD 5830, or maybe even their $270 Radeon HD 5850. As it turns out, two GTS 460's in SLI are good enough to threaten NVIDIA's top-end segment. In this article, Benchmark Reviews tests NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 SLI performance scaling.

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 GF106 Video Card
Featured Reviews: Video Cards

NVIDIA recently earned its reputation back with the GF104 Fermi-based GeForce GTX 460; a video card that dominated the price point even before it dropped to $179 USD and completely ruled the middle market. Priced to launch at $129, the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 packs 192 CUDA cores into its 40nm GF106 Fermi GPU and adds 1GB of GDDR5 memory. Benchmark Reviews overclocked our GTS 450 to nearly 1GHz, and even paired them together in SLI. NVIDIA expects their new GTS 450 to compete against the Radeon HD 5730 at 1680x1050, but we learned from GTX 460 there's usually more performance reach than they suggest. Since the price to performance ratio is critical to this entry-level segment, Benchmark Reviews also tests the NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 1GB against the more-expensive Radeon HD 5770 using several of the most demanding DirectX-11 PC video games available.

EVGA GTX 460 SC Superclocked Video Card
Featured Reviews: Video Cards

The NVIDIA GTX 460 is quickly establishing itself as the graphics card to beat in its price segment. The reconfigured Fermi architecture gives the card a real edge in gaming performance. With 1/3 fewer transistors to feed, it uses less power, runs cooler, and overclocks extremely well on air. With that kind of capability baked into the design, it didn't take long for NVIDIA's partners to start releasing overclocked editions. EVGA is one of the top AIC vendors for NVIDIA products, with a well established and loyal customer base. Their latest GTX460 video card is an SC (Superclocked) model that takes the reference design and pumps it up to 763 MHz. Benchmark Reviews takes a comprehensive look inside the EVGA GeForce GTX460 SC 01G-P3-1372-TR and then runs it through a full test suite. Read on if you want to see how this EVGA Superclocked edition performs and then watch as we push it even further with EVGA Precision and OC Scanner software.

PNY GeForce GTX 460 OC XLR8 Video Card
Featured Reviews: Video Cards

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 460 graphics solution has convincingly dominated the mid-range price point, and its GF104 Fermi architecture threatens several competing high-performance products. Our benchmark tests have concluded that both the 768MB and 1GB version can offer great gaming performance, along with outstanding overclocking headroom. Combined into a SLI set, two stock-speed GeForce GTX 460's compete with the Radeon HD 5870 in terms of frame rate performance. In this article, Benchmark Reviews takes the highly overclocked PNY 'XLR8 Black Box' video card (model VCGGTX4601XPB-OC) and compares it against a field of DirectX-11 graphics solutions. If you're shopping for a powerful middle-market video card, this externally-exhausting 1GB GeForce GTX 460 product could be the perfect fit.

MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GD5/OC Video Card
Featured Reviews: Video Cards

There is no doubt that the NVIDIA GTX 460 has created quite a splash since its introduction. The reconfigured Fermi architecture of the new GF104 chip gives the card a welcome boost in gaming performance, compared to the first GPUs in the series. With 1/3 fewer transistors to feed, the board uses much less power, runs cooler, and it overclocks well with just air cooling. With that kind of capability baked into the basic design, it didn't take long for NVIDIA's partners to start releasing overclocked editions with advanced cooling hardware. MSI has taken on the challenge, and released one of their custom designs under the Cyclone banner. Benchmark Reviews can't resist a good HSF assembly; that much should be obvious to long term readers. So here we are with a detailed review of the MSI N460GTX Cyclone 1GD5/OC video card.

Benchmark Reviews was stunned to see NVIDIA's mid-range GeForce GTX 460 graphics solution dominate the price point and threaten high-performance products. Our tests have concluded that both the 768MB and 1GB version can offer great gaming performance, and outstanding overclock headroom. Combined into a SLI set, two stock GeForce GTX 460's compete with the Radeon HD 5870. In this article, Benchmark Reviews takes the highly overclocked ASUS ENGTX460 DirectCU TOP/2DI/1GD5 video card and compares it against a field of DirectX-11 graphics solutions. If you're after a new video card, this 1GB GeForce GTX 460 could be the best $230 ever spent.

ASUS GeForce GTX 460 SLI Performance
Featured Reviews: Video Cards

When Benchmark Reviews first tested the video card, we knew that NVIDIA had a winner on their hands. For the mid-range price of $200, gamers can enjoy high-speed frame rates and PhysX enhancements. After some additional investigation, it seemed that the price point offered more than just a successful domination of the rivaling ATI Radeon HD 5830, it also surpassed the more expensive GeForce GTX 465. There are several enthusiast video cards that cost more than the GTX 460, which presents the case for combining two of these video cards into a $400 SLI set. At this price segment the GTX 460 SLI set directly competes against the ATI Radeon HD 5870, but could potentially deliver more performance than ATI's Radeon HD 5970. In this article, Benchmark Reviews compares single and SLI performance for the 768MB GTX 460 against the entire enthusiast graphics card segment.
