All of those leaked details about an upcoming GeForce GTX 460 graphics card from Nvidia might just be true. At least, a card that corresponds to that description has quietly made its way to listings from a sizable number of European online retailers.
Those e-tailers charge as little as €193.84 for the card, an Asus-branded offering with 768MB of GDDR5 memory, dual DVI ports, and one HDMI port. The vendor that quotes the lowest price also sells GeForce GTX 470 cards for €305.88 and up. Since the GTX 470 costs around $300 stateside, swapping the currency symbols might give an indication of potential U.S. pricing for the GTX 460.
The European listings may betray the upcoming GPU's existence and pricing, but they don't tell us much about when it'll actually arrive. Few of the store pages mention lead times, and those that do quote anything from two to four weeks. As for specifications, details quoted by one of the e-tailers—Computeruniverse.net in Germany—seems to corroborate the rumors.
If the rumor mongers got that one right, we may want to keep our eyes peeled next month. That's when sub-$200 GeForce GTS 450 and 455 cards are said to be coming.
