ZOTAC today announced the launch of its own GeForce GTX 460 SE card – the release coincides with the official announcement of the new GPU by NVIDIA. With the announcement, ZOTAC joins MSI as only the second company to enter the GTX 460 SE league.
ZOTAC’s GeForce GTX 460 SE is not much different from the stock design. Like NVIDIA’s reference card, ZOTAC’s piece also features 288 unified shaders. The ultra-wide 256-bit memory interface with 1GB of video memory has been left in place. No changes have been made on the core, shader, and memory clock speeds of 650 MHz, 1300 MHz and 3400 MHz either.
The manufacturer has loaded the card with a PCI Express 2.0 interface, and has also made it HDMI 1.4a compliant. Just like the reference card, the ZOTAC GeForce GTX 460 SE also supports Direct X 11 and is NVIDIA CUDA ready. The new GPU is also Blu-ray 3D ready.
The biggest change on the card from the reference card is the ZOTAC Boost Premium software that has been bundled for enthusiasts who like to push their cards beyond its regular capacity.
The card is expected to be available with retailers shortly, though pricing is yet to be announced; it should however not be much different from the one fixed by NVIDIA for its card.
