Zotac GeForce GTX 460 1GB review

The only £200 graphics card to buy

TODO alt text

So now we get down to the nitty gritty – how does the GTX 460 1GB perform?

Well, pretty good actually. Especially when you utilise some of that overclocking headroom that exists inside the GF104 GPU, as you can see from the comparative benchmarks.

It's also very much worth noting that as well as besting the 768MB version and the HD 5850, when in its overclocked state it gives the GTX 470 a good run for its money too.

In many benchmarks it actually beats it.
