Euro e-tailers start listing an Asus GeForce GTX 460

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.

    Can someone list the following cards in order by their performance: Radeon 5750, Radeon 5770, Radeon 5830, Radeon 5850, Radeon 5870, GeForce 450, GeForce 455, GeForce 460, GeForce 465, GeForce 470?

      hd5870
      gtx470
      hd5850
      gtx465 == hd5830 == (hopefully) gtx460 256 bit version
      hopefully gtx460 192 bit version
      hd5770
      hd5750

      If the gtx460 doesn’t come out the gate with a great price/performance ratio, Nvidia might as well pack it up and leave until next round.

        Where would the GeForce 450 and 455 fall in that list? Or is that still an unknown?

        Also, any word on how nVidia will differentiate the two models of the 460?

          All gtx460’s with 768mb of ram will be 192 bit interface, while all versions with 1 gig of ram will have a 256-bit interface.

          Very little seems to be certain about the GTX450. Supposed to be out this summer so going by nvidia’s recent history you should be able to buy one by Christmas.

            I would guess the 450 will be like the new 8600GTS. Probably be competing with 5750.

        you forgot hd5970 and gtx480

          those weren’t requested.

            Yeah, those two are obviously in the stratosphere both performance and price-wise. I didn’t really care about them since there’s now way I’m dropping over 4 bills on a video card.

      Good find. I hope this is another 8800GT, we really need the competition.

        a super hot, and power consuming 8800gt. I like the competition as much as the next guy, but this thing will really have to do very well to offer much in the way of competition. it’s still a lot bigger than ati’s chips, so they can just undercut, and sell more.

      I hope this at least brings some competition in respect to price / performance, I’d really like to see ATI drop prices on the 5850 and 5870 down to their launch MSRP’s sooner than later…
