That's according to Chinese website Expreview.com, whose "reliable sources" claim a toned-down Fermi product dubbed the GeForce GTX 460 will debut on June 1st.

Take the date with a pinch of salt, but it doesn't take a reliable source to speculate that NVIDIA's next Fermi derivative will launch at COMPUTEX - which just so happens to run from June 1st to June 5th.

What's potentially interesting is that the card is said to utilise the same PCB as the GTX 470, but features 1GB of GDDR5 memory connected via a 256-bit bus and presumably cuts across the board.

Putting our speculation hats on, we're going to attempt to take an educated guess at potential specifications.



Something like the above seems feasible, and the suggested specification would put the card up against AMD's ATI Radeon HD 5850.

Question is, could a GeForce GTX 460 match the Radeon HD 5850's 225 asking price?
Hmmm...
