Report: Nvidia GeForce GTX 460
by Damien Triolet
Published on July 29, 2010

Temperatures
Still in the same casing, we took a temperature reading of the GPU by internal sensors:


As you can see, the GeForce GTX 460s are well cooled. At idle the GPU hovers under the 30 °C mark, while the temperature in the room was between 26 and 27 °C. In load the temperatures remain relatively low with the MSIs having an advantage due to their more effective cooling system.

Here’s what the infrared thermographic imaging shows:

GeForce GTX 460 1 GB at idle

You can find more detail in our report on the thermal characteristics of graphics cards which has been updated to include the results for the GeForce GTX 460.
