Of course a 600w will run it.....you can run a 5870 on a 500w for goodness sake.
Why dont they use GDDR5 for higher performance ???
Does anyone remember when Nvidia released the 8800GT? Overclocks to almost the full performance of an 8800GTX but much cheaper, much cooler, requires less power and comes with a single slot cooler? Evolution rather than revolution with a die shrink and some clever design improvements...
I half expected the GTX460 to be a similar sort of release. Apparently not.
Mostly because TSMC shat bricks onto nVidia's strategy of creating huge dies and using die shrinks to save their asses.
Well TSMC are governed by the laws of physics and they aren't the only semi-conductor company out there. Nvidia should have done the research a bit earlier like ATI did with HD 4770.
price drop never happen , new gpu same price or more cause its new and not many in stock . intel does same with cpu germany 2 england 1 i think as i type , GTX 470 for me aa on its faster than a ati 5870 for less money nuff said .
I have a question: Why do you keep posting this in every single post you make? It's not even that relevant here.
they are using gddr5
The mid-range is getting alot more expensive than it used to be
Tempted. Either that or to edit everyone with something funny.
So whats the going rate these days for an nV shill ???
If the 460 really does use GDDR5 then why is it clocked so low, the bus not wide enough ???
Wouldn't a small bus = higher clocks to compensate?
I have a feeling it's a cost saving measure, no need to get high clocked RAM chips. That or it's intentional crippling.
Cheaper memory to hit the cost - memory prices have been increasing all round
or less memory power hardware to hit the cost and board size.
or Nvidia doesn't want it eating into their GTX 470/480 sales with a performance that's too close
Supply issue? Demand for fast GDDR5 is high because ATI uses it in everything and NV uses it for GTX 480/470/465 already.
Assuming the thermals and power consumption are decent Nvidia might finallyhave something that could form the basis of a HD59570 competing product.
its at 3600 so its not really all that low. it could be kept artificially low at this point so as not to eclipse the gtx465 too badly.
Pretty disappointing to see there doesn't seem to be a 384SP part at launch.
For us Folding nuts, the key questions are, "what is the ...
- PPD (Points per Day for the non-Folders among you)?
- Power consumption?
- Operating temperature under full load (24/7 use)?
- UK cost?"
.... probably in that order
This does seem a strange marketting ploy. Not only will it quite obviously (if the rumors are actually true) beat down the GTX465 making it kinda pointless, but being capable of GTX470 performance as well surely they are going to not only shoot themselves in the foot, but blow their whole leg off?
im a little scepticle, but having been watching the GTX 470 for some time with interest this has thrown a curve ball into the mix. My guess is that maybe the card will be designed at making current games comfertably playable where the ATI's are currently thrashing in all areas (ps this bothers me as i am also an Nvidia 'fanboi' lol) due to lack of Dx11 / tessalation support. However, if the Cost is around the £180 mark, then maybe its going to be set to be quite an awesome SLI proposition, as if it can nearly match a 470, surely two will match or even out do the GTX480? i'd like to see SLI for these upon release both stock and overclocked. Maybe then will i consider selling on my 260's
Either way it seems a little wierd, im going to hold off doing anything till a see them appear
