The Inno3D GTX 460 768MB retails at a blue-black package, possibly familiar to all those who own an Inno3D GT 240 iChiLL graphics card or have read our article about it.
The contents inlude the Inno3D GTX 460 768 graphics card, a drivers/applications CD, an installation manual, a power cable and connectors.
Inno3D has mounted a GF104 GPU on rather short 8.25" PCB, which is short enough for just about any PC case that can accept a double-wide card. The Inno3D GTX 460 has exactly the same length as the Gainward GTX 465 GOOD edition and uses the Nvidia's stock cooling mechanism, which proved to be pretty much silent even when the card was fully overclocked. As you can see in the picture below, a 80mm fan is placed on the top side of the a dual-heatpipe heatsink, with the heatpipes leading to raised fins on either side of the card. In turn these heatpipes are attached to a copper base which makes contact with the heatspreaded capped GPU:
The rear of the card is not sealed, but the card’s cover has a plastic lip. This blocks direct airflow out the back.
The 768MB GTX 460s requires 2 6pin PCIe power plugs, which are mounted facing the rear of the card. As the ATX power limit for a card with 1 plug is 150W, this makes 2 plugs required on the 150W TDP 768MB card:
The Inno3D GTX 460 768MB 2x DVI ports and a mini-HDMI port. The card supports HDMI 1.4a including GPU accelerated Blu-ray 3D4 support, xvYCC, deep color, and 7.1 digital surround sound including Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD. Upgrade the GPU to full 3D capability with NVIDIA 3DTV Play software, enabling 3D gaming, picture viewing and 3D web video streaming:
We installed the card and GPU-Z provides some of its basic specifications:
Below you can see the low temperatures of the GPU with the Auto fan speed option enabled:
