If true it will prob sit around the HD5770
please update link so its has the above one in (we are english)
other note that site is Very unoptimised with 130 pics loading on it
More re hashed, re branded, over priced, over heating rubbish then.
LOL, the GTX460 doesn't seem to be any of the above. If it's true then the GTS450 wont either. So that's the low and mid range taken back by Nvidia without suffering from any of the above either. Rumours also a foot that the GTX470/480 have also had the same makeover and also wont suffer from any of the above. So even though the GTX480 takes the highend single card purely on performance, the new version will take it on everything else as well.
When will the naming madness end? 480, 470, 460 now 450. Im assuming that there will be GTX/GT/GTS variants. Waaaghhhhh
Geforce GTFO 450 perhaps?
I'm tempted to go back to Nvidia for the 460, but I would seriously buy a GTFO card!
Its not so bad. The 8 and 9 series I didnt like. 8800GTX,Ultra,GT and 9600GT,GSO,GS.
I dont like GTX465 but the rest of it makes sense so far for this series.
naming has actually been very clear on nvidias side this gen
Naming has been fine so far - the number dictates the speed, although I suspect there is trouble ahead as a full GF104 with all 386 shaders would be a GTX 465, only there already is a GF100 based 465 and this new one will be faster.
As for all the ati fanboys you obviously haven't got the latest news. Even Charlie is having trouble finding anything bad to say about the GF460. The GF450 will have the architectural changes that made the 460 great so chances are it'll also be pretty good, although the 5770 is going to put up more of a fight then the lame 5830 ever could.
LoL, point taken
However, my original comment was really meant as broad generalization about the state of Nvidia products rather than one individual product.
But I think that got lost somewhere down the line.
Lets hear it for badly written, badly thought out, poorly worded, half asleep comments, Wooooo : )
If nVidia can pull off a small, quiet, cool, single pci-e 6 pin powered, £120 5770 killer then they could really get a good bit of sales, as the 5770 is arguably the most common DX11 card.
I still won't be switching back to the green team any time soon. Nvidia have not impressed me for sometime. Pity really, as they are generally better with drivers and AA performance.
(Remembers fondly my Geforce 256 *sigh*)
Actually it is the drivers as to why I will never buy ATI. I admit when they are faster but I can just not stand their drivers. It is a personal problem but I can never buy any more ati cards becuase of it.
Ati Drivers aren't really that bad anymore. If they could just outpace the HD5770 by 10FPS, they'd have a hell of a market.
Are people still seriously using this shockingly bad excuse to not buy very good GPU's? Christ if you missed out on the whole HD4k series and skip the 5k series because of some long extinct fallacy of dodgy drivers I almost feel sorry for you.
I dont know what happened during the X1900XT and HD3800 (I was using Nvidia during that period) series but i've owned ATI GPU's from the excellent 9800PRO through to the X1800XT, 2900PRO and 4800's and I can tell you not one of those gave nowhere near the trouble I had with my 9800GX2.
Yup, Charlie thinks the 460 is a good card though not for Nvdia:
"If Nvidia decides to release more GF104 derivatives, it will up the effective yield, but anything lower on the performance scale would go up against Juniper, a 166mm^2 chip. That is economic suicide."
This is a huge problem for Nvidia, as it's where the biggest money is made.
