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 an addition to a complete product range of advanced 3D processor graphics cards based on NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GTS 450 GPU the POV/TGT GeForce GTS 450 “BEAST”.

The POV/TGT GeForce GTS 450 “BEAST” is of highest quality and feature rock solid stability even beyond the documented clock settings of 920 MHz core clock, 1840 MHz shader clock and 4008 MHz memory clock (1002 MHz times 4 due to GDDR5). Considering the 783 MHz NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 reference design, the 920 MHz POV/TGT GeForce GTS 450 “BEAST” offers a significant performance increase of over 135 MHz.

lol probably costs as much as a cheap 460 and still will perform worse and use more power due to those clocks but i can say its pretty awesome to see a company really pushing there gpus to the limit for customers

knowing the TGT Beast cards, these will probably hit 1000mhz core, as they may well run 920mhz on stock voltage.

It is nice to see overclocked models that are not just another 15, 25 or 50mhz increase on the core, i have been supprised by the ammount of 450s and 460s with really nice clock speed increases.
So many people i know are scared to death of overclocking in any way and i'm asked so many times if squeezing out those extra mhz at stock volts will fry the card :laugh:

The only problem is often the price increase of the higest clocked models boarders on the next card up making them almost worthless to many people as they would just save the extra $30 or whatever it may be.

I agree, it's a bonus to think you are getting a card that genuinly has the highest binned chips that have the potential to clock higher than most others..... I wonder how 2 of these at perhaps 1000mhz core would perform in SLi, possibly better than a HD5870 for 25 - 30% less in price?

I can't be sure how they compaire to all the 5870 benchmarks from the same site but tweektown has some benchmarks for a 920mhz 450 here and as an example their 5870 review gives far cry 2 61fps at 1920x1200 and the oc'd 450 sli gets 89fps, if that lead carrys on with other games 450 sli may make for a pretty good budget setup.

Going by uk prices from one site, cheapest 450 £100 (x2 for sli) cheapest 5870 £280 thats £80 less for more fps in at least one game... to lazy to check through more :laugh:

Far Cry 2 is not a good guide for general gaming performance as it heavily favours Nvidia cards (for whatever reason).

TBH whilst two GTX450's can at least match a single HD5870 you would be better off getting a single GTX460 or HD5850 and clocking it.

Heck if you want to SLI something (in the UK) go for two GTX460's at a smidge below £120 each.

Yea a bad example for the benchmarks but i laughed so hard when i realised you are right on the prices, an oc'd 450 (asus directcu £120) cost more than a 460 (palit 768mb £116), really makes me think the 450 is priced to high to make sense.

Agreed the GTS450 current pricing (and the existance of the HD5770) kindof puts it on the spot with nothing to counter with.

It really needs to be sub £80-90 to be worthwhile in either single or SLI configs.

But 768MB of memory just does not flick my switch sadly, I need moooaaarrrr.

that is a good point, the 1gb versions are all at least £40 more and really the 1gb 460 is the one to go for, the extra power and memory really pays off at higher res/in sli.

I plan on buying a GTS 450 soon, going for the 930 core version.

The 450 realistically doesn't have enough grunt for anything beyond 1680x1050 so its extra memory is kind of a moot point.

Heck I am finding a single heavily overclocked GTX460 1GB not enough at 1680x1050 (especially Just Cause 2) and hence I find I am running SLI more often than not (I share the second card between my pc (SLI) and my wife's pc and she gets annoyed when she can't play L4D2).

If only Tri SLI was possible with the GTX460 series....

Roll on 6990. :D

I have to admit i have not looked that far into the 450 and single 460 reviews, right now the only setup that could meet my needs is 460 sli (need support for 3 new monitors in the coming months :D) but for me it's roll on 6970 as that's the card that really has my interest right now.

For me it's about performance for a price, I couldn't work with a single 460 or 450 so in this case I am looking at whether I can, for the price of my current 5850 get extra performance without spending more and the reviews suggest that two 450's will give me upto 20% more performance than the 5850. My issue (for want of a better word) is that I need the power simply because I have a large 28 inch monitor for a 1920 x 1200 resolution, now as we know, 24 inch monitors also can support 1920 x 1200 but when you have the image displayed over an extra 4 inches of screen I rely on very high AA to keep things looking totally beautiful so to speak, and in some of the most demanding games that can put serious stress on even a 1000mhz 24/7 5850 and memory.
