Latest Zotac GeForce GTX 460 has four display outputs


— 4:18 PM on September 21, 2010

If you checked our latest release roundup, you'll know Zotac has no qualms about deviating from Nvidia's reference designs. After introducing a 2GB version of the GeForce GTX 460 last week, the card vendor is now back with a fresh variant that features four display outputs.

Zotac claims this week's model "enables multi-monitor computing with up to four simultaneous displays from a single graphics card." That sounds like you can actually use four displays at a time, when as far as I'm aware, the regular GeForce GTX 460 will only drive up to two monitors in a single-GPU configuration. (I should note that Zotac's 2GB card also has four display outputs, but one of those is HDMI, and Zotac makes no claims about exceptional multi-display capabilities there.)

Zotac's GeForce GTX 460 3DP features one dual-link DVI and three normal-sized DisplayPort outputs. The card also comes "factory overclocked" with a 710MHz GPU core speed, a step above the stock 675MHz. Overclocking doesn't affect the 1GB of GDDR5 memory, which runs at 900MHz (for an effective 3600 MT/s transfer rate). Digging in the box should reveal a free copy of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, as well.

Update: Zotac tells us the 3DP can run three 1600x1200 monitors and one 2560x1600 monitor simultaneously. The DisplayPort outputs are apparently limited to 1600x1200.
