EVGA has already launched overclocked versions of NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460, but now the company has enabled users to increase performance of the plain models with an overclocked BIOS, available free at the company website.
EVGA GeForce GTX 460 has a stock GPU frequency of 675 MHz and 1350 MHz on the CUDA cores. With EVGA's new BIOS it pushes the clock frequencies up to 720 MHz and 1440 MHz. Not quite up to EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked (763/1526 MHz) but still an impressove boost completely free of charge for those ready to flash the BIOS of their graphics card.
EVGA has also raised the max speed of the fan from 70% to 100%, to ensure that the temperatures will remain in the safe regions when the load increases. EVGA's new BIOS and a guide for how to flash can be found here.
