ZOTAC GeForce GTX 460 AMP Edition Beefs Up Gaming Graphics

So you’re not satisfied with your graphics gaming card? With today’s high-end video games, I don’t think anyone is truly satisfied with their graphics card. But that’s okay…everyone has a right to be dissatisfied with poor performance, and ZOTAC has an answer. They’ve announced the GeForce GTX 460 AMP! Edition for desktop PCs that literally amps up performance by 20% while providing a cooler working atmosphere for the card, as well as noise-reduction properties so it’s as a quiet as a Hollywood celebrity in court for drug abuse.

Carsten Berger, marketing director, ZOTAC International commented in the press release, saying…

“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,”

Well, enough with all the jibber-jabber…it’s time to feed the man-nerds stats and numbers. You can check out the complete list of the card’s specifications below. And if I must say so myself, this card really does look badarse. Need more info? Hit up the Official Website.
