Today is Geforce GTX 460 day

Written by Slobodan Simic

Roundup: Nvidia's $200 DirectX 11 card is here

Nvidia has finally made its Geforce GTX 460 cards official. Based the same GF104 chip that we wrote about for quite some time, this 40nm card features support for DirectX 11, and will be available as a 256-bit 1GB version and 192-bit 768MB version.

The reference GTX 460 cards have 336 CUDA cores and work at 675MHz for the GPU, 1350MHz for shaders and 3600MHz for GDDR5 memory. It has dual-DVI and mini HDMI outputs and a TDP of up to 160W. The new cards are priced at US $199 for the 768MB/192-bit version and around US $229 to US $249 for the 1GB/256-bit version.

As expected, the 768MB GTX 460 offers better performance compared to AMD's HD 5830, while the 1GB GTX 460 can cross horns with the HD 5850, and does it quite well, considering that it has more ROPs, additional L2 cache and those 256MB of memory more when compared to the 768MB GTX 460 card, all for a mere $30 more.

Of course, we're still waiting to see AMD's move, and we are quite sure that we'll see a price drop or two now that GTX 460 has shown its face on the market.

Most reviews that went online agree on the same thing, Nvidia's GTX 460 is a pretty good $200 card, and GTX 460 1GB makes more sense, so at least partners will be happy. In order not to jinx Nvidia we'll stop praising them, but finally consumers can enjoy a bit of healthy competition.

Here are some of the reviews that went online. Our review is coming shortly.

Its not like my opinion matters, but does anyone really care about this mediocre release? I dont really see any advantage this card offers over other comparable cards at its price point... whenever I see a story with the 460 or 465 I shrug *meh* :zzz

or maybe you have to big red color glasses,that you don't see that this card can make nearly 5850 performance for much less price?
another ati troll :-x

I've been reading the benchmarks and it seems that two GTX 460s in SLI are faster than a GTX 480 and cheaper to boot. I wonder if we're soon going to see a revised GTX 480 using the new Fermi chip?

Probably gonna be something like GTX485 or something,doubt NV not gonna use this new very good GF104 chip on some High End cards.
And yes,GTX460x2SLI = performance king atm
