    Default GTX 460 Review Round Up

    Well, the're here, the GTX 460 is out, despite Newegg having them for sale Saturday morning. This could very well be the most promising of the Fermi line since its release.



    The GTX 460 goes up against some of the top cards in that generation. Here are some of the benchmarks from some of the top review sites:
    Source from Benchmark Reviews
    Source from Tom's Hardware
    Source from Hardware Canucks
    Source from Anandtech
    Source from Guru3D
    Pictures of the non-reference designs are in there as well.

    In some of the comparisons, the GTX 460 can even beat an ATI HD 5850, let alone a 5830! It's also amazing how a stock 460 beats a stock 465. The first benchmarks from overseas saw the 768MB tested with promising results. It looks like the GTX 465 is in trouble at this point. We might even see price drops on 5830 cards in the near future. It's a possibility.

    Here's some pricing and quick stats:


    With a pricing like this, it would be a good time to make that upgrade if you were waiting for that "perfect" Fermi card to come along. Could this be the REAL money maker for Nvidia? Is this the "8800GT Effect" Nvidia was hoping for?

    If anyone has more information and/or benchmarks put up, I can post it to here. Thanks.

    The edits keep coming! Stay tuned!

    Well, these cards are looking pretty good right now. I don't see anything wrong with them. They are also supposed to overclock very well. Palit has a factory overclock of 800MHz for the shader on their Sonic Platinum model.

    According to the linked benchmark, it handily beats it.

    well, that's good, but by how much? how does it fare against the HD5830?

    the 5770 can be had for $130, so for ~50% more, i'd hope it'd tear it up!

    edit: i should probably check the link. ill do that now

    wow, this card is a winner. for sure. glad to see they finally have a competitive fermi!

    I'm buying one of these as soon as Newegg has either the ASUS, EVGA or Zotac in stock. I'm talking the 1GB model of course.

    go for EVGA if they have it, or if it means you have to wait 24 hrs. EVGA is by far the best company ive ever dealt with

    Yes! Although one shall be enough. There is a possibility in the future for a GTX 480, or whatever exists then.
