Default GTX 460 SLI: The REAL deal

http://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/N...460_SLI/1.html

That, my friends, is what we've been waiting for in the enthusiast market. The value of that sort of setup is incredible!

Now Nvidia is back in the game.

Fully fledged dual GF104 card even with lower frequencies would wipe the floor with HD 5970, easily. Too bad we didn't have this instead of GF100, when it really mattered.

Just imagine, what they really had in store, if this was supposed to be only a mainstream chip. GF100 with 512cores on a good process would be amazing.

The SLI results are impressive, just imagine when you couple that with a nice overclock.

Default Re: GTX 460 SLI: The REAL deal

I've noticed that a single HD 5850 is usually very slightly faster than a single GTX 460. How would two HD 5850s in CrossFireX compare to two GTX 460s in SLI? Will the HD 5850s in CrossFireX scale just as well as the GTX 460s in SLI?

SLI almost always scales better than crossfire, it's just how it is. One of the SLI reviews compares it to an HD 5970, which performs about the same as 5850s in crossfire and the 460 almost always outperforms it or is neck and neck with it.

Dunno.

The rumor is that a dual GPU card based on GF104 is coming, so if that's true, it would be based on this chip.

Wouldn't surprise me. With a little tweaking, this thing could be an absolute monster.

I just bought a GTX 470 (the Galaxy 470 GC). Should arrive tomorrow. As usual, wondering if I did the right thing.

Hopefully the noise and temps on this Galaxy unit will be true to what I've been reading in reviews. And it does have a much bigger potential frame buffer with 1280 MB and some additional future proofing in the number of cores and the memory bandwidth.

Thumbs up Re: GTX 460 SLI: The REAL deal

Yep the reviews are looking good, particularly when you consider price plus overclocking. Grats nVidia.
