Does the world need another GTX 460?  Gainward apparently thinks so, and has set forth to impress with a new graphics card containing a whopping 2GB of VRAM. This Golden Sample (GS) is based on the GF104 chip’s 40nm technology, which means that it comes with 336 CUDA Processors, 256-bit memory interface and output connectivity options such as D-Sub, Dual-DVI and mini-HDMI output. While it is capable of 2-way SLI, Gainward’s GTX 460 is clocked at 700 MHz –  which does not come across as anything particularly impressive due to the fact that it is only 15MHz higher than the stock speeds. In addition,it appears that this card does not have any support for the overclocking of the VRAM, as they remain at default frequency of 3600 MHz. Simply put, the impressive amount of memory of this card is pretty much the only aspect that differentiates it among the other GTX460s in the market. Unfortunately there are no official price tags on this card yet, but we figure that it will cost around EUR/$220-250.
