NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 Specs and Launch Date Leaked | bit-tech.net

NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 460 will arrive in early-mid July and has a 180W TDP, 786MB of GDDR5 memory and 240 stream processors.
Computex 2010: Word on the Computex show floor is that NVIDIA’s upcoming GeForce GTX 460 GPU will ‘still run hot, but overclocks awesomely: you’ll get GTX 480 performance.’ We were told the card length is equal to that of an ATI Radeon HD 5770 (8.5in) but it has a 180W TDP at stock speeds.

The GTX 460 is set to have only 768MB of GDDR5 memory, rather than the 1GB of some HD 5770s and of all HD 5850 cards, and will use a 192-bit memory interface, which is wider than the 128-bit bus of the HD 5770 but skinnier than the 256-bit bus of a HD 5850. However, with only 240 stream processors, we find the claims that an overclocked GTX 460 will match a stock-speed GTX 480 rather far-fetched.

The GeForce GTX 460 uses the newer GF104 Fermi die, and parts will only launch with the NVIDIA reference-design cooler at first, with custom coolers coming later. This is unlike the recent GeForce GTX 465, where partners could do what they wanted from day one. The GeForce GTX 460 will be available early-mid July.
