Gainward Released World First GeForce GTX 460 2GB “Golden Sample”

Who Says Size Does Not Matter! As Long As One Got Enough Stamina!

(Auszug aus der Pressemitteilung)

July 30th, 2010 – As a rule of thumb, any performance graphics cards on-board memory

exceeding 1GB are merely for show! For most of GPUs do not possess
enough calculating power to fully utilize so many frame buffers. There is a
revolutionary breakthrough triggered by Gainward innovations, just a
couple of weeks ago, Gainward released GTX 460 Miura Bulls series,
showcased its strong competences in GOOD developments, particularly
with GLH model, it won the title of world fastest GTX 460. Now Gainward
is playing the hat trick all over again, the Miura bull has received a “Frankensteined” 2GB implantation, and
created a true Monster!

Today Gainward proudly introduce you its world first own designed Gainward
GeForce GTX 460 2GB “Golden Sample”. Don’t be fooled by your old creed about 2GB myth! For the first
time, these beefy 2GB frame buffers are to be filled quickly owing to the most powerful and efficient GF104
architecture in graphics cards history. Even better, Gainward never does things by half, these 2GB memory
are to be overclocked! It wears the badge of “Golden Sample” represents its invincible performance of this
untamed beast. It’s not only huge, it’s fast and it’s full of stamina “not merely for show”.

Every single piece of Gainward Golden Samples has
been applied for critical burn-in tests and this is to
ensure the best stability under aggressive
over-clocking. Gainward factory over-clocked GTX
460 2GB “Golden Sample” from 675MHz to 700MHz
for all 336 CUDA Cores and 1,800MHz for 2 GB
GDDR5 256 bit memory bank, equivalent bandwidth is
up to 115.2 GB/sec, which is more than 33% boost
from standard 192 bit GTX 460. It is absolutely rare!
Gainward is not only the first own to present this
model but ready for volume shipment. It’s no doubt
about for a good balance in performance, quietness, sustainability and most importantly depth of your

Moreover this GS GPU is cooled by Gainward Grand Prix (GP) Heatpipes Cooler, forced ventilated by GR8
fan (Great 8 cm double-ball-bearings fan), which leaves lots of head room for exercising over-clocking
maneuver by Gainward awarding winning Expertool utility.

DirectX11 performance defeats easily thanks to future-proof GF104 architecture, which fully adopts all
DirectX11 state-of-the-art technologies. Gainward GTX 460 2GB “Golden Sample” outperforms 18% than
HD5850, and 32% than HD5830 in DirectX11. While its DirectX10 performance is 12% better than HD 5830, and you get to enjoy extra NVIDIA exciting features – PhysX, CUDA & 3D Vision or more immersive 3D
Vision Surround in SLI configuration. The lively stereoscopic 3D across 3 monitors out-of-screen
experiences are beyond your senses.

Gainward generously equips QuattroPorts (HDMI, Dual Dual-Link DVI & legacy VGA ports) on this model.
Capped with GR8 Fan and rugged Japan-made solid-state capacitors, Gainward GeForce GTX 460 2GB
“Golden Sample” retains excellent thermal performance and great stability under aggressive over-clocking.
The over-clocking behavior is rather linear and predictable. Aided by Fail-Safe Gainward “Expertool”
over-clocking utility, even a computer newbie can easily earn more performance from their fingertips with
peace of mind.

The bigger the better, who says size doesn’t matter. Are you ready to take on the big charging bull? Just
have fun with Gainward GTX 460 2GB “Golden Sample”.
