Nvidia's GF 104 has eight clusters

Written by Fuad Abazovic

One disabled, 384 shaders possible
Nvidia's GTX 460 is the latest generation Fermi successor and this mainstream chip is showing some promising performance for a $199 card. The card that was reviewed here and all the hardware community iz abuzz with talk that it has 336 shaders, or seven clusters with 48 shaders each.

Since the GF104 chip has eight shader clusters you can expect that at some point the company might launch a faster version of GF104 with total of 384 shaders and most likely higher clock. This will probably happen once it runs out of GTX 465 stocks.

The cards based on this GPU in our test easily overclock to 870MHz, a good 200MHz over the default 675MHz which shows there's a chance for Geforce a GTX 460 „Ultra“ card something that will jeopardise the performance of GTX 465. We are not sure when this chip comes out, most probably when Nvidia runs out of GTX 465 Fermi based chips, but at least we know that it is in the plans.

There's also the issue of yields. Right now, NVIDIA seems to be having trouble making enough GTX 460s with the full 256-bit bus.

So we might have to wait a while for full GF104s in significant volume.

That wouldn't jeopardize the GTX465, a full cluster even slightly overclocked card would put pressure on the value of the GX470, it wouldn't dethrone it, but it would put major pricing pressure on it. No one cares about GTX465 sales, but impacting the GTX470 would be costly, the current GTX460 already threatens the GTX480's value due to the SLi option.

The GTX465 is a poor bridge attempt to do what the GTX460 does now with a dedicated chip for less and far better.

Actually, it's a crappy GTX480 wrapped in a pretty package with pink bows and butterflys.

Wow eight shaders, sounds like something Intel would build.
