What happens in Gainward, stays in Palit. Barely a week after Gainward showed off its GeForce GTX 460 graphics card with 2 GB of memory, its brand owner Palit has its own model of the same kind, called the Palit GTX 460 2 GB Sonic. This non-reference design graphics card has Palit's own design PCB and cooler, has 2 GB of memory across a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, and factory-overclocked speeds of 700 MHz core, 1400 MHz CUDA cores, and 900 MHz (3600 MHz effective) memory. Display connectivity includes two DVI, and one each of HDMI and DisplayPort. The is said to be priced around 240 EUR.

I don't know what the deal is with palit and custom coolers in the past few years. Back when they were doing the sonic 8800s they were great. After that 80% of their coolers have had problems like they don't cool the vrm or the fans are much louder than they should be or they ramp up inappropriately. It's not like people haven't been complaining about it, so I don't get why they ignore these issues... or for that matter why all the tech manufacturers seem to ignore consumer complaints in general. Hell it takes asus two chipset generations to fix systemic design flaws on their boards. All I can assume is the Asia branch doesn't listen to the reports passed on by the foreign branches, or doesn't care.

Most useless piece of kit.
2GB is too much, and you have to pay a premium.

I agree with AndreiD.

2GB for a GTX 460 is absolutely worthless.
