Galaxy GeForce GTX 460 Hall of Fame Edition Graphics Card Pictured

First reported in October, Galaxy's GeForce GTX 460 HOF (Hall of Fame) edition graphics card seems to have finally taken shape, with the company giving out pictures of the card with its cooling solution installed. The card sports a milky-white colored PCB that makes use of 1 Gigabit memory chips and digital PWM power circuitry that makes use of proadlizers to condition power.

Its cooling solution makes use of an aluminum fin array to which heat is conveyed using four copper heat pipes, cooled by a single 80~90 mm fan. The card makes use of a 6+2 phase digital PWM power circuit that allows software voltage control. Out of the box, the card is clocked at 850/1700/1000 MHz (4 GHz GDDR5 effective), core/CUDA cores/memory. More pictures can be found at the source.

Does the color of the PCB affects performance?
Or it does not mean anything?

I was more interested in the 1ghz core GTS 450 HOF, but this looks pretty sweet. But at its price I'll have to wonder how it ends up shaping up vs. GTX 560.

white? Really? That looks pretty, its been a long time we dont see white pcb, they just go around black, blue, green, red some still brown
i vote on white today..

Looks very nice, now if only there were still manufacturing motherboards with this color. Cooling seems decent too, and with that 6+8 power input seems like there will lots of room for OC. If only those cards were sold here... :(

Does Sapphire not make motherboards with white PCB's anymore? SAPPHIRE MB1013 AM2 AMD 690G HDMI AMD Motherboard

the great thing about this card (and also the other great non reference GTX460's) is that when Nvidia release the 560, it should be able to drop straight onto these PCB's with the better cooling solutions too.

If GF110 and GF104 is anything to go by (nvidias ability to tweak a chip on the same fab process, and an already kickass GPU, respectively) 560's should be cheap to produce, easy to cool, overclock like maniacs and sell like hotcakes.

GTX 460 Not Fast Enough To Justify 2 gig memory

So if it costs a lot more than 1 gig versions even overclocked to 1ghz it still just is not fast enough even in SLI to really need a HUGE frame buffer. At 2560 * 1600 at max detail in Metro 2033 in Directx 11 these cards even at their fullest potential are just not fast enough. Not trying to take a wiz on Galaxy's parade but we have to be honest here. :wtf:

Hey BTA The Pics Says 1 gig

I read what BTA said and it says 2 gig but the pic says 1 gig. Thanks for pointing that out Wolf. Is something amiss BTA? :D

P.S Were you hungry Wolf? I thought for a second you said sauce.

If you game in the sun or under ultraviolet light it will not absorb heat; it will reflect it. ;)

I personally like the heatsink design and how big the mosfet heatsink is. It's nice having separate heatsinks for the ram / CPU.

A 460 that now needs a 8-pin + 6-pin power source makes me :laugh:.

The news post says 2 Gigabit and not 2 Gigabyte. Probably refers to either the memory chip density or the clock speed.

Pointless with the GTX560 to be released soon.

my hope is that the GX460's PCB's, wether reference or not are pin compatible with the GTX560 GPU, thus letting us get great GTX560's very soon after launch instead of waiting months and months for them.

but then you get scenario's where the reference cards themselves are absolutely fantastic, two examples spring to mind, 5850 and 6950. GTX580 may be a contender too.

So what? EVGA has FTW editions, Sparkle has a Sabrina Edition, Palit has a Smart Edition. It seems that nowadays, silly names on graphics cards make them sell. :ohwell:
Strangely on Galaxy's site, this card is listed as "White edition" and the only "Hall of Fame" card there is a GTS 450 with an Arctic Cooler Twin Turbo Pro.

Actually compared to others this one is fairly good, implys it is a record breaking card.
