    "The GTX 240 is set to have only 768MB of GDDR5 memory,"

    You sure about this?

    Yea, it will melt, but if yo Oclockit you will get it to melt as fast as a 480! For just the money you can get a 5830!

    So, how can this thing beat a 5770? In most things, 5830 is closer to a 5770 than a 5850, and a 5830 is just about equal with gtx465. Chopping off so many shaders + mem bandwidth + amount of memory? I find if far fetched to believe, that it can be anything but a very lousy alternative to a 5770.

    Gah! Am I ever going to get used to GeForce 4-series naming? Thanks for flagging!

    GTX 460: 786MB of GDDR5 - yes, I've had that confirmed. Some partners could double the GDDR5 density to 1536MB, but I think Nvidia really wants to hit a price and performance point. It needs to compete well with HD 5770.

    Matches it in heat, methinks.

    Where's my MSPaint'ed GTX460? ;)

    Might get this to replace my aging 9600GT.

    how will this be better than current gtx260-216 which has 216 stream processors and have a price tag of £80.

    Given the relative (lack) of performance of the GTX465 I don't think this card will perform all that greatly given the hardware sacrifices.

    The TDP seems high as well given the specs.

    EDIT: The lack of vram will possibly hurt it in certain games as well (compared to the HD5770).

    Still no nvidia card worth buying then. :-(

    Looks like I'm sitting pretty with my cards then.

    This is exactly why I just bought a second 280. More performance than a 295 or a 480, And it cost £300 less. I'll wait until there's some DX11 parts with performance worth upgrading for.

    so basically they now claim that they can get the same performance from the GF104 as they get from the GF100? That's rich...

    Some speculation on the price here, but are they going to position it between the 5770 and the 5830, continuing their strategy of not directly competing but jumping in the gaps between ATI cards?

    I must say, i'm genuinly interested to see what this thing has to offer. Fermi architecture, low price point, DX11... It could be a nice card to put in SLI for a triplecreen 3D setup, no? That is, if they managed to get a grip on the production process so this one doesn't melt.

    In my opinion, I would edit the article to reflect 240sp is a guess.

    After-all, it doesn't make sense unless they literally doubled the flop count per shader. GF104 is supposed to be a new architecure, or rather, the units/bus will likely be changed to be in different ratios, I doubt they'll do anything that extreme...but it's possible.

    Until that one Chinese article with screenshots/benches is proven fake, I'm rolling with that: GTX460 being 336sp, 192-bit, 768MB, 130W TDP clocked at 675mhz/3600m and performing similar, if not better compared to a GTX465. Proof that FLOPs to nVIDIA are important more than most anything else.

    Even assuming THAT'S true though, it would take a 1ghz clock to equal a GTX480 in it's shader flops, which is very important to it's architecture in relation to game performance. I don't think that will be happening, as I imagine it will be constrained by the 150W limit of the power connectors/voltage, not to mention it makes no sense with 768MB. Certainly somewhere close but not equal to GTX470 (5850?) performance seems possible when overclocked (It would take ~810c/5580m to be similar to the 470, not accounting for the 512MB less RAM...5% less or so on the core to equal 5850). Still, a better price/performance/watt option compared to the GTX465 and 5830...Maybe even 5850 depending on where it's priced.

    On the other-hand, if there's another GF104 part that is 384sp, 256-bit, which seems likely...That could be VERY interesting. I imagine that's where the 180W TDP comes from. Such a a part clocked at ~875c/5544m would equal a GTX480...

    Ah, now we're getting somewhere. That seems VERY possible, if not at stock then at least through overclocking (accord to the 900+mhz rumors, and your article.) :thumb:

    BTW, you should use either that GF104 core/pcb pic to replace the 470 one in the article...Just as it will in reality.

    Surely there will be some custom cards from Zotac, EVGA with 1536 MB RAM (double) as it has been released before with NVIDIAS previous cards. About graphics 1536 memory is needed when running for example GTA IV at full spec (after hacking the ini file I still see some graphical artifacts due to too little graphics memory).

    My CPU Spec: Core i7 860@3.80 GHz, 4 GB RAM, 8800 GTS 512

    Even if it overclocks to 480 speeds, will it not need a 480 cooler to stop it melting your case?

    I've hardly used my boxed up GTX275 and now apparently it's old! :'(

    According to Hexus this is between 15 - 20% slower than the 470.

    Nvidia have released another stinker :D
