The ZOTAC ® GeForce ® GTX 460 AMP! ® Edition begins the transformation process with a new high-performance dual-slot cooler that drastically reduces temperatures and noise levels while delivering lightning-fast frame rates. An orange fan and accents finish the looks of the ZOTAC ® GeForce ® GTX 460 AMP! ® Edition cooler for looks that fit the high-performance persona.

Performance tuning leads to a 20-percent higher engine clock for phenomenal performance gains. Shader and memory clocks receive a boost to keep up with the adrenaline-injected engine to deliver vivid visuals, high-speed anti-aliasing and unprecedented details and clarity.

“We spent extra time tweaking the ZOTAC ® GeForce ® GTX 460 AMP! ® Edition design to achieve the performance we desired. The result is a graphics card that pushes the limit of the GPU and memory performance capabilities without making any sacrifices to noise, temperature or packaging,” said Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC ® International.

The ZOTAC ® GeForce ® GTX 460 AMP! ® Edition features a unique port layout that consists of dual dual-link DVI, HDMI and DisplayPort outputs capable of supporting all digital monitor standards as well as analogue VGA monitors. An SLI-bridge connector enables up to two ZOTAC ® GeForce ® GTX 460 AMP! ® Editions to combine rendering power for up to 2-times the performance increase of a single card and enable NVIDIA ® 3D Vision Surround technology for immersive triple-monitor gaming.

A full copy of the latest Prince of Persia ® adventure– The Forgotten Sands TM is included with the ZOTAC ® GeForce ® GTX 460 AMP! ® Edition to let users instantly take advantage of the gaming capabilities of the card.
