EVGA GTX 460 2WIN Dual GPU Graphics Card Review
Patrick "MACMAC" MacMillan
PC Perspective have posted a review of the interesting new EVGA GTX 460 2WIN graphics card, which features two GF104 (aka: GTX 460) GPUs, 672 shader cores, and a 2x256-bit 2048MB GDDR5 memory interface.
Here's what they had to say:
"What might have originally looked like a Franken-card being created by EVGA has turned out to be one of the best graphics cards we have reviewed all year. By combining a pair of GeForce GTX 460 GF104 GPUs on a single PCB and pricing it lower than the GTX 580, EVGA has built a card that offers similar performance and more features than NVIDIA's own flagship single-GPU card. By adding support for four monitors, NVIDIA Surround and 3D Vision Surround to the single card scenario (similarly to the GTX 590), the GTX 460 2WIN card offers up a lot to gamers looking for a graphics solution around $400. Despite the obviously "1337" and cliché name, EVGA has a winner on its hands."
This model provides great high-end performance for the money, no doubt about it. However, what should really excite users is its multi-monitor and 3D gaming capabilities. Thanks to its twin GPUs, the GTX 460 2Win can not only power triple monitor gaming setups, but it also supports NVIDIA 3D Surround. These are two features that otherwise require two single-GPU cards in an SLI configuration to function. Those who are more productivity minded will be glad to know that this card can actually power four displays, thanks its the three DVI-I and single mini-HDMI outputs.
