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. ECS didn't stop there though as they added a dual fan Arctic Cooling GPU cooling solution to make sure they card operates quietly and to ensure a long service life. If you are looking at the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 series you might want to look at one of these!
The ECS GeForce GTX 460 1GB Black video card is a fun little card with the solid price/performance ratio from the GTX 460 series cards with an ultra efficient heatsink and a hefty factory overclock. When overclocked up to a 900 MHz core speed the GTX 460 1GB begins to close in on the performance of a GTX 470 (the factory overclock itself puts it above the GTX 465) and well above cards from the Radeon side of the fence for a lower price. The heatsink uses 92mm fans (with unrestrictive aluminum fins and a plastic shroud) which are dead silent at an idle state and not audible over even just the pump from the Corsair H50.
