EVGA GTX460 SLI Review


In keeping with the stripped-down nature the box is very simple. After all there is nothing really to advertise as this isn't a FTW edition, or custom cooled. The back is the typical multi-language tiny-text fest.

In keeping with EVGAs commitment to the environment the internals are in recycled cardboard. Like an egg-box. It actually works very well and is as good a solution as any.

The card itself is understandably simple in design, although the inclusion of a big fan in the middle should help keep the chip under control. If anyone knows why the reference designs use a tiny fan up one end, do let us know because it makes zero thermal sense.

As this is only the 768MB version the rear of the card is fairly simple. But yes, we have two of the blighters with their copper heat-pipes shining through the fan.

Alongside the twin DVI ports is a mini-HDMI. Plenty of output options. Although today we're only going to be using one of them.

Two PCI-e power inputs should ensure that the card is kept supplied with all the juice it can draw.

EVGA? *swoons* don't tell me they finally let OC3D give their products some love?

*reads* cheers fellas !

Ahh, brilliant as always

I actually rather like the look of those cards too (eats some humble pie) as the stickers on them are quite tasteful and not overdone and gaudy.

Will stick with my 5770s (and hopefully soon AMD's 9800GTX for Physx) but if these had come sooner (7 months sooner) I would have had no qualms about grabbing a pair (ooer).

Thanks again for the reviews lads, Stepster will be very pleased. He can gloat even more on MSN now Quote
