    Point of View, the leading European manufacturer of an exclusive range NVIDIA based 3D processor boards, advanced netbooks as well as fancy touchpad computers and additional enthusiast PC products, announces today that first products of the upcoming advanced POV/TGT "BEAST" product line already started shipping into the European channel three weeks ahead of schedule. POV/TGT GeForce GTX 460 "BEAST" products are of highest quality and feature rock solid stability even beyond the documented clock settings of 855 MHz core clock, 1710 MHz shader clock and 4020 MHz memory clock (1005 MHz times 4 due to GDDR-5).

    All of the POV/TGT GeForce GTX 460 "BEAST" products are hand selected and manually tuned with a proprietarily tuning algorithm developed by TGT's highly skilled hard- and software engineering team in Germany. Frankly speaking, TGT tuning is "Made in Germany". Finally all of the POV/TGT GeForce GTX 460 "BEAST" products are verified with a comprehensive burn-in procedure to assure highest customer satisfaction.

    "Our team worked for over three months day and night," said Wolfram Tismer, CEO of TGT. "We are very proud of being in the position to offer computer enthusiasts what we believe is the best possible NVIDIA GeForce performance on the planet in a rock solid hard- and software-environment."

    "Point of View was always striving to offer high quality products with extremely low defective rates," added Björn Solli, CEO of Point of View. "The addition of professionally tuned enthusiast products to our existing product range based on high quality components and high quality manufacturing enjoyed an overwhelming response around the world by the well known community of enthusiastic computer journalists as independent reviews turned out to be exceptional."

    The POV/TGT GeForce GTX 460 "BEAST" is available with both, 1GB of GDDR-5 display memory as well as with 768MB of GDDR-5 memory at lower cost. As most of the DirectX 9 and DirectX 10 computer games don't require a 1GB frame buffer, the less expensive 768MB configuration is also an excellent choice.

    Considering the 675 MHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 768MB reference design is running around an excellent score of "5700" in "3D Mark Vantage Extreme" settings (Intel P55 platform), the 850 MHz POV/TGT GeForce GTX 460 "BEAST" 768MB outperforms competitive products with over 7100, while the 850 MHz POV/TGT GeForce GTX 460 "BEAST" 1GB even exceeds a score of 7600, which is up to 33% faster than reference design. This is comparable with a sports car running up to 250 km/h tuned to a top speed of 332.5 km/h.

    that's one fast stock card, bring on a dual GPU GF104 already, weve seen the massive potential on offer!

    All reference 460s are like that. The cooler shroud actually caves in towards the fan, to ensure that if cards are placed in SLI right next to each other that there will be space top and bottom (in reference to the mobo) for airflow. The fan itself is clear of any obstructions if placed against a flat surface.

    lol there are a decent few right around 800-810mhz core already, I call that a decent OC as it is, but 850 is just insano. I bet all they had to do to get them all stable is make 1087mv the stock voltage and make the fan profile slightly more agressive.

    A Point of View GeForce GTX 460 Ultra Charged Edition ( 820 core , 1000 Mem - beast ? whatever ) sells at @ 250EUR , what is the point ? even a stock card from Sparkle ( or. 675MHZ ) can do 800Mhz + no problem , and you pay alot less . No decent cooling , no nothing ... to be honest im better off with a HD5850 if we are talking 250EUR .
    What a joke ... just my POV

    OH and btw , whats up with that ? Point of View, the leading European manufacturer of an exclusive range NVIDIA based 3D processor boards ... what exactly are they manufacturing ? can someone please enlighten me ?

    I got 910 core stable on my old card at 1087mv with default fan profile. 850 doesn't really seem insane to me.

    My eyes hurt from looking that promo picture. :(

    A green fairy streching a chewing gum and an out-of-place BEAST logo with animal eyes and football bearing with "TUNING" text plus "TGT Charged"?

    Seriously.

    I myself am trying to keep a good distance from anything labeled "tuning" as it normally means something like crap quality for young no-brainers.

    EDIT: Oh, "made in Germany"... well, it somewhat explains it. Not that I've seen anything like that in... never?
