EVGA teamed up with Swiftech to deliver a water cooling solution for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 470 ‘For The Win’ edition video card that makes it hard to ignore. The EVGA Hydro Copper waterblock uses a 0.6×0.6mm thin pin matrix, and the base plate is made of chrome plated electrolytic C110 copper which gives it a clean look. The integrated heat pipe connects to the power mosfet heatsink for optimal cooling and the end result is a card capable of massive overclocks!
The ECS Black GeForce GTS 450 1GB PCI Express 2.0 video card comes with 192 CUDA cores that are factory overclocked to 850MHz on the core clock, which is a nice boot from the 783MHz used on the NVIDIA reference design. ECS didn’t stop there, though, as they added a dual fan Arctic Cooling GPU cooling solution to make sure the card operates quietly and to ensure a long service life. Read on to see how it performs against four other NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 video cards!
NVIDIA has been slowly trickling out GeForce 400 series graphics cards since April 2010 when the company first launched the GeForce GTX 480. Today, NVIDIA is releasing another new DX11 graphics card, but this time around it is an entry level card with an MSRP of just $79.99. This is a very popular price point for video cards and one where NVIDIA has been lacking a DX11 offering for nearly eight months now as the ATI Radeon HD 5500 series has had no direct competition.
We got word late yesterday by a friend at NVIDIA that Best Buy had slipped up and released NVIDIA branded graphics cards on Sunday night. This is the first time that we have seen NVIDIA branded video cards being sold direct and we went to a few Best Buy stores in St. Louis and sure enough, we spotted the cards sitting on store shelves. We couldn’t leave the store empty handed, so we bought the card for $299.99 and headed back to see what it was all about.
Did you know that NVIDIA GeForce GTS 450 and ATI Radeon HD 5770 video cards are nearly identical in price?

The question we look at today is which setup performs better and which one scales better?
The ECS Black GeForce GTX 460 graphics card comes with 336 CUDA cores that are factory overclocked to 765MHz on the core clock, which is way up from the 675MHz used on the NVIDIA reference design.

If you are looking at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 series you might want to look at one of these!
