Nvidia's reference GTX 460 packs 768MB

Written by Slobodan Simic

Partners left to do 1024MB version

According to what we are hearing now, Nvidia's reference GTX 460 card is the one with a 192-bit memory interface and 768MB of memory, while the 1GB version with a 256-bit memory interface will be done by partners. This also means that the 1GB version could end up with better non-reference cooling.

A lot of partners are concerned regarding the current situation as the GTX 460 1GB might end up faster than the GTX 465, at least in certain scenarios. The concern is legit and if the performance of the GTX 460 1GB comes close to the GTX 465 these cards will sell a lot better than the GTX 460, and as you would have guessed, it means that partners will get stuck with a large stock of GTX 465 cards.

We all saw the picture of the reference GTX 460, and according to our sources, that is the one with 768MB of memory. We might even see a situation where some partners will not even go for the 1GB version, at least not until they clear their GTX 465 inventory. In this case, the fully enabled GF104 might take a while before coming to the market.

I think GTX460 1GB is faster than GTX465.

Both cards have the same memory bus, but 460 is faster so that settles the memory bandwidth.

460 has 336 CUDA running at 675 = 226800 CUDAMHz.
compared to
465 has 352 CUDA running at 608 = 214016 CUDAMHz.

On top of that, it is rumored that 460 has more TMUs and architecture improvements.

I thought the full GF104 contained 384 SPs.

"it means that partners will get stuck with a large stock of GTX 465 cards"

What is the difference? They still do have lots of stock of aged long DX10 cards like Geforce 9 series cards. Ah, sorry some are now renamed to 200 series or 300.

Therefore they can hold that GTX 465 to 500 series next time

Quoting JWellington:

The rumor says that GTX 460 has only 336 out of 384. The rest are disabled.

More like non-functioning... and those few that are functioning will most likely end up as Quadro for big bux.
