gtx 460 2win question

I have a evga gtx 460 2win and I thought it would show as 1 card but it doesn't. It is 2 cards in 1 slot. It is also supposed to be 2048mb gddr5 but it shows 1023 for each card. Does anyone know if it is supposed to be like this?

Windows 7 Pro X64 SP1

All correct.

It's basically two graphics cards (each with 1GB of memory, unshared) in a single package. If you SLI the GPUS, you'll get performance, but effectively 1GB of video memory. That's normal with SLI. (The texture data are duplicated in each memory set.)

Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit

The twin is basically 2 separate GPu's snapped together on one PCB. both have same specs and same amount of memory. You should see 2 gpu's and 1gb memory for each of them.
