MSI is rolling out a new premium GeForce GTX 460 SKU, the N460GTX HAWK "Talon Attack". The new model is based on the same design as the N460GTX HAWK the company released over a month ago, except that is uses lower latency memory chips (better), at 0.4 ns; and higher clock speeds. The core is clocked at 810 MHz (compared to 780 MHz on the N460GTX HAWK); CUDA cores at 1620 MHz (vs. 1560), and memory at 975 MHz or 3900 MHz GDDR5 effective (vs. 900 or 3600 MHz effective).

interesting, it will probably be among the fastest GTX460's under extreme overclocking conditions, but at $260 it's entering HD5850 territory... not to mention Barts is coming to challenge GTX460's too.

Mwave has it for $235 right now. Pretty decent deal given the card's specs and component quality.
