Roundup: 14 GeForce GTX 460 1 GB cards!
by Damien Triolet
Published on February 16, 2011



From launch, the GeForce GTX 460 was a unanimous hit, with NVIDIA finally offering a decent price/performance ratio. With the arrival of the Radeon HD 6850, which has a similar level of performance, the GeForce GTX 460s were drastically cut in price, making them an even better buy. Mamy models have come onto the market from NVIDIA’s various partners and we wanted to give you a report on them, concentrating on the 1 GB models that we see as offering the best value for money.


The GF104
All these GeForce GTX 460s are based on the GF104, a derivative of the Fermi archictecture optimised to offer a good price/performance ratio for gamers.


The GF104 has 384 processing units and 64 texturing units organised into 8 partitions and a 256-bit memory bus. All the GeForce GTX 460s are however cut down, to a lesser or greater extent, depending on the model, as NVIDIA is selling different versions with different specs under the same name. We’ve concentrated on the GeForce GTX 460 1 GB cards which are the highest performance cards in the range and are equipped with enough memory to avoid any problems in the future, including in SLI systems which are more sensitive in this respect.

You can find more details in our GeForce GTX 460 test and more recent performance readings in the Radeon HD 6800s test.
