Soft launches are all well and good, but it's nice to see a product actually become available right as the first press releases and reviews start rolling in. Nvidia's new GeForce GTX 460 is one of those products—at least, the 768MB version of the card is. Perusing Newegg's listings, we've found seven variants of the GTX 460 768MB; some are stock-clocked, some are "factory overclocked," and all sell for around $200:
|Graphics card model||Price||In stock||"Overclocked"|
|MSI N460GTX Cyclone 768D5/OC||$209.99||Yes||Yes|
Newegg also lists a couple of GeForce GTX 460 1GB cards from Palit: one for $229.99 and a "factory overclocked" model for $249.99. Neither one is actually in stock, though. Nvidia did tell us supply of the 1GB card would take a couple of weeks to ramp up.
In case you didn't notice the big feature box at the top of the page, our review of the GeForce GTX 460 (in both its 768MB and 1GB flavors) can be viewed here. The 768MB card's performance slightly outpaces that of AMD's Radeon HD 5830, and its stock cooler is nice and quiet. Finally, some competition where it matters.
