Euro e-tailers list GeForce GTX 460

That GeForce GTX 460 we heard about a month or so ago seems to be turning from myth to reality. At least, the folks at Fudzilla have uncovered several online listings for the unannounced Nvidia graphics card on the Old Continent.

Prices seem to start at €242.77 before tax at Dutch e-tailer Max ICT, which also sells the existing GeForce GTX 470 for €287 and up. That would make the GTX 460 about 15% cheaper than Nvidia’s current most affordable DirectX 11 offering. Carry that price relationship over to the U.S., where the GTX 470 sells for about $350, and we get a potential American price tag of $296 for the still-unreleased card.

At that price, the GeForce GTX 460 would actually be undercutting AMD’s Radeon HD 5850 ever so slightly. Good news for bargain hunters, no doubt, although those folks might be more interested in that GF104 mid-range GPU the rumor mill has been grinding on about.

Too bad none of the listings Fudzilla found say much in the way of specifications. The only apparent detail is the card’s frame buffer size: 1GB. Max ICT does quote a four- to seven-day lead time, which could be a hint of an imminent launch—or a dishonest vendor, depending on how accurate that estimate is.

    diminishing returns.

    a card that gets 30% more performance usually costs 50-70% more $.

    going the other way around, 15% less performance for only 15% savings is not a good deal.

    Sure, don’t forget helpful posts and sarcasm.

    A 15% cost reduction to match a 15% performance reduction… doesn’t that make too much sense?

    That’s because nobody wants to buy GTX 470/480 at those prices. Only die hard Nvidia fanbois bought them at launch. Sane people would buy 5850. Able to overclock high and perform faster than 5870 and cheaper than 470 and eat much less watts. Why would anyone want to put an expensive furnace in their computer that cost more and perform about same?

    It’s no wonder Nvidia has plenty of GTX in stock even with their 20% yield.

    Geez well thanks captain obvious!
    I don’t care enough as to look into it in detail but was asking in case anybody did do so and/or had something to say about it.
    It’s a place to discuss and exchange no? No need to be a dick, seriously..

    Also, if the 470 performs approximately like a 5850 anyway, will the 460’s performance be anything close to that? The rumoured specs are 384 shaders @ 1400MHz, down 15% from the 470.

    If you had really wanted to know you could have just done a simple search. Or do you not know how to?

    Mmmh sure I’ll get my head out of his arse as soon as you lighten up sweet cheeks.
    My life doesn’t revolve around Nvidia so I was just asking, and given that a) and b) were true not long ago and that any news of yields was bad..

    I have a feeling that if this thing released for $296, “undercutting AMD’s Radeon HD 5850” ATI would drop the price of the HD5850 to ensure that the situation didn’t stay that away, even if the HD5850 was more powerful.
