Con il comunicato stampa di seguito allegato, Leadtek Research ha lanciato la video card WinFast GTX 460 OC 1024MB in versione "overclocked by factory" (la scheda segue la variante con 768MB di RAM lanciata nel corso del mese di luglio, ndr).
La nuova scheda grafica è basata, al pari di ogni altra GTX 460, sulla gpu GF104; tuttavia il maker ha impostato la frequenza di clock del processore grafico, che include 336 Cuda core, e della memoria RAM (1024MB di G-DDR5) rispettivamente a 725MHz e a 1800MHz (3600MHz). Il bus di interconnessione tra il core grafico e il frame buffer è a 256-bit.
La stabilizzazione termica della video card è ottenuta con il ricorso a un cooler attivo a basso livello di rumore, dotato di due heat-pipe in rame con diametro di 8mm.
Tra le tecnologie supportate dalla scheda, che può lavorare con filtro antialiasing a 32x, citiamo DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.0, Shader Model 5.0, PhysX e 3D Vision Surround. Il set di connettori di uscita include una porta HDMI e due DVI-I.

After launching the WinFast GTX 460 768MB in July, Leadtek Research Inc., known globally for its extreme visual graphics technology development, offers the new Overclocked version of WinFast GTX 460 1024MB graphics card for enthusiasts seeking an increase in the performance of their computers. Based on NVIDIA GeForce 104 GPU and 336 cores, the new version features a core clock speed of up to 725MHz and its memory clock (memory bandwidth) reaches up to 1800 (3600) MHz.
When overclocked, the card shows great promise and compares more favorably to the WinFastGTX 465. According to executing the 3DMark Vantage performance test in laboratory, WinFast GTX 460 1024MB Overclocked has raised 30% 3D performance under specific games. But the speed benefits are accompanied by high levels of heat generated by the card, which can make systems very noisy. This new version has two 8mm copper heat pipes and a copper base to dissipate heat from the back of the card for quicker cooling, which can lower temperature quickly. The special durable cooling design not only creates a dramatic cool-down effect, but also maintains low noise, ensuring top cooling efficiency and silence in the system.
WinFast GTX 460 1024MB Overclocked gives your games an adrenaline shot with incredible DirectX 11 performance and futuristic, visually stunning graphics. Tessellation - one of the biggest new features of Microsoft DirectX11 - helps developers create more detailed characters and terrain in games, bringing you sharper, crisper images and a more realistic experience. The WinFast GTX 460 1024MB graphics card not only provides a 37.8 billion pixels/sec fill rate, but it also features new, high-speed 32x anti-aliasing, which smoothes the edges for top-notch visual quality. From jaw-dropping PhysX technology and stereoscopic 3D Vision Surround technology to lightning fast gaming effects processing, all accelerated by the GPU, the WinFast GTX 460 1024MB graphics card does it all with mind-blowing performance.
With the full support of the latest Microsoft Windows 7, DirectX 11, OpenGL 4.0 and Shader Model 5.0, WinFast GTX 460 1024MB is also able to deliver realistic and high quality gaming effects. Gamers are ensured more flowing video quality in the latest gaming environment, especially in large scale texture processing. Moreover, with one native HDMI connector, 2 DVI-I connectors and the 7.1 LPCM audio through PCI-Express 2.0 interface, gamers enjoy a high definition audio experience with no extra SPDIF cable needed.
