Gainward GTX460 Golden Sample Review

3D Mark Vantage
Stop the press. We firmly expected the 460GS to beat the standard 460, but thought it would be on a par with the 465. As you can see this is nothing like the case with the 460GS standing tall at stock, and so far ahead when overclocked it nearly goes off the end of the graph. A P-Score around 19000 is what we expect from an average ATI 5870, so Gainward have definitely come out the blocks fast.
Running our basic Unigine Heaven without anti-aliasing we can see the GTX465 just about keeping up with the Gainward Golden Sample, with the reference 460 a fair way behind.
Once we increase the level of anti-aliasing the 460GS moves into another gear entirely. Even at stock it annihilates both the Reference 460 and Reference 465.
