With no public word yet from big ‘N’ on quite when users can expect the GTX 460 to be released, retailers such as Newegg are already shipping them. Ranging in prices from $199.99 to $249.99, the GTX 460 looks like it’ll probably be a solid mid-range card.
Specifications for the cards are all over the map, with some retailers offering samples with the reference clocks of 675MHz core and 1350Mhz shader all the way up to PALiT’s 800MHz Core and 1600MHz shaders. Each card features 336 Fermi processor cores and typically 768MB of GDDR5 graphics memory. Results with its sibling, the slightly-more-expensive GTX 465 should be interesting, as the GTX 460 features fewer cores, but clocked at higher speeds.
