Most people don’t need 2GB of frame buffer—if they’re gamers. Palit’s GeForce GTX 460 Sonic 2GB card isn’t aimed solely at gamers, however. Like any GTX 460 card, it does a bang-up job in most modern 3D games. But at roughly $250, it’s about $20 more than the equivalent 1GB card from Palit—which also runs at a higher core clock.Don’t think of that 2GB of RAM as just frame buffer, though. The card was designed for the emerging class of applications that take advantage of GPU compute.
