Test Setup, Overclocking, Game Benchmarks

Today's test system consists of the hardware listed below, and as with all good testing a clean install is used and the latest Windows Updates and manufacturer drivers are applied. The applications and games used in today's tests are the latest of what was available at the time of this analysis - links to demos and free trials are provided when applicable.


MSI's GeForce GTX 460 1GB HAWK features a default core clock of 780 MHz, and shader of 1560 MHz, while the memory runs at 900 MHz (3600 MHz effective). Full specifications can be found here. Overclocking allowed us to increase the core to 940 MHz, shader to 1880, and memory to 1075 MHz (4300 MHz effective) making full use of all the available voltage adjustments possible.
