First regiment of GTX 460 cards sets up camp at Newegg

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"
ASUS ENGTX460/2DI/768MD5 $199.99 Yes No
MSI N460GTX-M2D768D5 $199.99 Yes No
GIGABYTE GV-N460D5-768I-B $199.99 Yes No
Palit NE5TX460FHD79 $199.99 Yes No
EVGA 768-P3-1362-TR $209.99 Yes Yes
MSI N460GTX Cyclone 768D5/OC $209.99 Yes Yes
EVGA 768-P3-1362-AR $219.99 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.

    If ATI felt threatened they would have made some price drop already… and considering that their gpu is still being sold above MSRP, it’d definitely take some time until they’d do anything…

    I’m probably going to hang back for a month and wait for AMD’s response, but right now, the 8800GTS to 768MB GTX460 is a tempting prospect.

    Ebuyer has the 768 in stock in the UK for £150 including shipping and taxes.

    Price war FTW!!! HAh! You ATI Fanbois be ready to cry for you mothers. Nvidia is going to rip ATI a new one. Then after that, you Nvidia Fanbois be ready to bury your dog, because ATI will come back and straight murder it! The price war will beautiful and I’ll get a choice of the 5850 at 200 bucks or a 460 at 180… Ahhh competition 😀

        What, in their Early Enrolment Program?

          They have those for middle school?

            Yeah they do, it’s a great program that I like to spend my days reading TR and commenting at.

    When will XFX release theirs?

      Considering their jump to AMD, and then skipping on the GTX470/480 cards (or Nvidia not giving them any, depending on who you ask), I would not be at all surprised to find out that Nvidia, as punishment, is either delaying their shipment of GTX460 cards or simply not allowing them to sell any. Otherwise, it doesn’t make any sense for XFX not have a card out at launch.

    As an Nvidia -[

      Next year they will have no chipset business, no low-end business (Fusion/Sandy Bridge), and many of the exclusive features gone (CUDA -> OpenCL/DirectCompute, AMD’s 3D, AMD’s Optimus clone and maybe some kind of Havok physics).

      Tegra 2 has appeared in only two retail products – Zune HD (lol) and the cancelled Microsoft Kin phone. We were promised hundreds of design wins for Tegra 1 and we got zero retail products. Same for Tegra 2 and it got a few products. Not a big earner.

      Tesla and high-end Geforce will be the only intact markets.

      1 winner amongst a litany of losers does not a company survive on.

      I’m glad they’ve got something interesting but a long overdue ATI price adjustment will make the 460 look like junk far faster than it took Nvidia to finally come up with it.

    Maybe ATI will start reducing the price on 5850s now.
