Radeon HD 5830 Gets Price-Cuts, Takes Aim at GeForce GTX 460

Call it one of the immediate repercussions of NVIDIA's Monday launch of the GeForce GTX 460, AMD has responded covertly with noticeable price-cuts for the ATI Radeon HD 5830 graphics card, from across various AIB partners. Leading partners such as Sapphire, HIS, and Gigabyte positioned their models that have AMD-reference clock speeds at US $199.99, and factory-overclocked models starting at $229.99. Incidentally these are two price-points NVIDIA is targeting with the GeForce GTX 460, with the 768 MB variant positioned at $199.99, which NVIDIA refers to as the gamers' sweet-spot, and the 1 GB variant at $229.99.

Reviews from across the web show that while GeForce GTX 460 768MB gets close to the Radeon HD 5830 in terms of performance, it only takes the 1 GB variant to perform on par. With AMD positioning the HD 5830 at $199, and factory-overclocked HD 5830 starting at $229.99, things could get heated up in this market segment. Based on the 40 nm Cypress GPU, the Radeon HD 5830 is DirectX 11 compatible, packs 1120 stream processors, and 1 GB of GDDR5 memory.

MSI Readies GeForce GTX 460 Cyclone OC Graphics Card

MSI's GeForce GTX 460 lineup will include a non-reference design graphics card right from the start (when NVIDIA announces the GTX 460), with the company allowing partners to come up with their own product designs. The N460GTX Cyclone 768D5/OC from MSI, as the name suggests, is a GeForce GTX 460 768MB factory-overclocked graphics card, which makes use of MSI's iconic Cyclone GPU cooler. The cooler is made of an aluminum GPU base from which heat is conveyed by two 8 mm thick heatpipes (which MSI calls "Super Pipes"), to two arc-shaped aluminum fin arrays on either sides of an 80 mm fan. The fan also cools a spirally-projecting aluminum fin block right under it.

The N460GTX Cyclone 768D5/OC has clock speeds of 725/1450/900(3600) MHz (core/CUDA core/memory), and makes use of 768 MB of GDDR5 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. Based on the 40 nm GF104 GPU, the GeForce GTX 460 packs 336 CUDA cores, DirectX 11 compliance, and can work in tandem with one more of its kind (2-way SLI). Display connectivity includes two DVI and one mini-HDMI. Being an overclocked non-reference model, MSI's card is expected to be costlier than the reference model (which is expected to be priced at $199), and could be out of the 12th of July, when NVIDIA will have its new GPU out.

GeForce GTX 460 Pricing Surfaces, Gets Listed in EU

With its launch reportedly scheduled for 12th July, certain European etailers just can't resist listing it on their sites to pool in prospective buyers or pre-orders. Price aggregator compiled a list of stores that have already listed the ASUS GeForce GTX 460 768MB (part number 90-C3CHB0-P0UAY0KZ). Prices of this part range start at 204.51 EUR. Another source reports that NVIDIA is targeting the US $199 price point with the GeForce GTX 460 768MB variant, and $229 price point with the 1 GB variant. The 25% more higher memory amount isn't the only thing that warrants the $30 increase in price, the 1 GB variant also has 25% higher memory bandwidth.

The GeForce GTX 460 is NVIDIA's latest product in the making, it is based the new GF104 core, that packs 336 CUDA cores, 256-bit GDDR5 memory interface (192-bit on the 768 MB variant), and has all the features of the GeForce 400 series, including advanced tessellation, DirectX 11, CUDA, PhysX, and 3D Vision Surround.

GeForce GTX 460 to Come in Distinct Variants, Launch Date Surfaces

The much talked about upcoming GeForce GTX 460 GPU from NVIDIA was recently pictured and detailed. Out of its first, grainy pictures, it became clear that the GF104 core it's based on indeed supports a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, but that only six of its eight 32-bit wide channels were occupied (192-bit), yielding 768 MB of memory. Fresh reports suggest that NVIDIA indeed will release the GeForce GTX 460 in two variants, a 768 MB one, and a 1024 MB (1 GB). The 1 GB variant by design will be faster, even if an application doesn't need all its video memory, because it will have a wider 256-bit memory interface, that's 25% higher memory bandwidth. Both variants will have the same memory clock speed of 900 MHz (3600 MHz effective). The GF104 core will be clocked at 675 MHz on both models, with 336 CUDA cores. Built on the 40 nm process at TSMC, the GeForce GTX 460 768 MB will have a TDP of 150W, while the 1 GB model will have a TDP of 160W. New reports suggest that the 768 MB model will be priced at less than $200. NVIDIA will release the GeForce GTX 460 on the 12th of July.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460 Reference Design Pictured

Here are the first pictures of NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 460 graphics card, an upper-mainstream model based on the company's new GF104 GPU which was pictured earlier. The pictures reveal the reference design card to be shorter than any of the GF100-based graphics cards (such as GTX 470, GTX 480), and compacted in many ways. The cooler is dual-slot, and instead of an air-channel that's draws air from the interior and blows it out from the rear, the cooler has a centrally-located fan right over the GPU. As expected from the older article, the GPU package indeed is rectangular in shape rather than square.

The PCB is black, though a green PCB cannot be written off given the product's positioning. There are traces for eight memory chips on the card (looking at the components on the reverse-side of the PCB), confirming a 256-bit wide memory interface, though six chips are occupied (indicating that for this SKU only, a 192-bit wide memory interface is used. There is only one SLI finger showing that it only supports 2-way SLI multi-GPU standard. Connectivity on the rear panel is consists of the usual 2x DVI-D and mini-HDMI. Power is drawn in by two 6-pin PCI-E power inputs. Other specifications include DirectX 11 compliance, 336 CUDA cores, 768 MB of 192-bit GDDR5 memory (or another SKU with 1 GB of 256-bit GDDR5 memory), and clock speeds of 675 MHz core, 1350 MHz shader (CUDA cores), and 900 MHz (or 3600 MHz effective) memory. The GTX 460 768 MB is expected to launch next month at a price of US $230.

NVIDIA GF104 Package Pictured

One of the first pictures of NVIDIA's upcoming GF104 graphics processor has come to light, with a Chinese source picturing a GF104 qualification sample. The sample is based on the A1 silicon. The GPU package is similar to that of the GF100, it makes use of an integrated heat-spreader (IHS) to disperse heat from the die underneath it. The package is rectangular rather than square (probably a move to reduce board footprint, translating into more compact boards) The GPU is built on TSMC's 40 nm process, and is said to have significantly lower TDP compared to the GF100. One of the first SKUs built around it is the GeForce GTX 460.

Contrary to older reports, Expreview's report suggests that the GeForce GTX 460 will have 336 CUDA cores (instead of 256), and 768 MB of memory across a 192-bit GDDR5 memory interface. Its TDP is expected to be around the 150W mark, similar to that of a GeForce GTS 250. It will target price-point slightly above the $200 mark, while other SKUs carved out of this silicon will be lesser.

GeForce GTX 460 Details and Launch Date Emerge

NVIDIA's GeForce GTX 460 (not to be confused with the older speculative name of GTX 465), is expected to be the company's weapon of choice to take on the lower-end of ATI Radeon HD 5800 series, and Radeon HD 5770. Based on the new 40 nm GF104 GPU, the GTX 460 will step up competition in the DirectX 11 compliant performance GPU category.

The specifications so far known show that the GPU will make use of all the components available on the GF104, which include 240 CUDA cores, and will feature 768 MB of GDDR5 memory across a 192-bit wide memory interface. Apart from basic specs, the board's TDP too will be much lesser than that of the GeForce GTX 480, at 180W. It comes with the usual bunch of NVIDIA exclusive features including SLI (we expect 2-way), CUDA, PhysX, and 3D Vision Surround. It expected to launch in mid-July, just in time for summer.Source:

NVIDIA Designs GeForce GTX 460

NVIDIA is said to be working on another GF100-based SKU, which further cuts down from the GeForce GTX 470. The new SKU, GeForce GTX 460, is expected to rival ATI Radeon HD 5850 in the sub-$300 market segment. The GF100 will be configured to have a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, driving 1024 MB (1 GB) of memory. Clock speeds could be another thing NVIDIA uses as the determining factor. The GTX 460 will not have a reference design as such, and AIC partners will be allowed to release their own designs from day one. The new SKU is expected to release in June. Pictured below is the GTX 470 PCB.
