Default Re: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 arriving June 1st?

From Heinz68 over at the closed rumor mill thread (duplicate):

Coming June 1

According to
, Nvidia will introduce another Fermi iteration on June 1.

The card, designated GTX 460, will take on AMD's HD 5850 both in terms of price and performance. It will pack 1GB of GDDR5 memory on a 256-bit bus, but there is still no info on the possible clocks or the number of shaders.

Nvidia's planned GTS 450 is rumoured to feature 192 shaders, while the GTX 470 has 448, so the new card should fit somewhere in between, which leaves a lot of room for speculation. We can only guesstimate that it will end up around 400 mark. (416, 384, take your pick. sub.ed.)

Nvidia will let partners mess around with the design, s a lot of non-reference cards can be expected. More here.
Nvidia already has 470 to take on HD 5850, well except for the price, heat, noise and probably overclocking value.

Now if this rumored GTX 460 would solve some off the above it would compete more against the GTX 470 if not actually kill it.

Lets not forget that the original MSRP for the HD 4850 was $259, so ATI can most likely drop the price if needed. Anyway good news for the consumer if true.
